The breweries displayed with a yellow background do not appear anymore on the list of the Federal Customs, yet seem to be still active. I will keep them for some time in the hope that they will regulate their situation.

BFM (Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes)

Founded in 1997

chemin des Buissons 8
2350 Saignelégier

Brewer: Kevin Egenschwiller and René Bage.
Founded by the legendary and charismatic Jérôme Rebetez in November 1997, the BFM (Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes) and its beers have always been similar to their boss: full of character and uncompromising. This initially one-man company has now about 30 employees. Having fought many years almost alone against an ocean of insipid blond lagers, the BFM is the flagship of the swiss brewing fleet, as well inland as abroad (about 20% of the production is exported to 18 different countries). Offers a large palette of beers among them the legendary Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien brewed in honour of the deceased (and since them of course sanctified) cat of the brewery.
The plant has been first renewed in Sommer 2010 to face the increasing demand then again in 2019 which should allow a doubling of the production until 2024.
Long time leader of my top Swiss brewery list until 2014 and then again from January 2016 to January 2021.

"Brewer: Sandro Ettlin and Elena Hoffmeyer.
Brews on a 5 hl installation. Offers 2 core beers and many one-shot (Aléatoire), all certified organic and the ""Aléatoires"" brewed with Swiss malt only. Has no claim to follow beer styles guidelines so don't try to catalog their products."

8 7.4

Brewer: Alexandre Courtet and Michel Reuter.
Well, well... What should I say without being unpleasant... They gave a little bit more body to their initial beers, replacing some of the incredible sweetness with a bad, rough and aggressive bitterness. This is very surely brewed with extracts and in any cases just at the level of bad homebrew. You don't believe me ? Just ask Kuaska :-)
Offers 5 core beers

Don't kill me, it's only my opinion...
Au Fût Maltérue du 23 Juin 24
2830 Courrendlin
2004 - 2006

 3 6.4

Brewer: Thierry Wegmuller.
They probably have special prices for sugar in this part of the country ... Very dubious to say the least. Without doubts one of the worst brewery in the country.

Farmers brewing their own beers. The first brewery in this canton to brew with local ingredients only. The quality is not convincing at all.
