Brewer: Stefan Falk.
Uninspired middle-sized brewery offering below average, boring lagers. You have to be from the french-speaking side of the country and particularly proud of it to like this brewery.
Owned partially by Löwengarten in 1997 and then completely by Doppelleu in June 2017 (effective from January 2018)
The brewery has moved from Romanel/Lausanne to Yverdon in March 2012 and increased its production of 35% in 4 years. They have the project to get bigger and to reach 75'000 hl until 2021. This is very likely to happen after the potentiel vacuity created by the closure of Cardinal in Fribourg.
80% of the production is sold in the french-speaking part of the country.

Brewer: Raphaël Mettler, Mike Vermeulen and Jordan Keeper.
Creative and deeply interesting microbrewery. Raphael quickly improved his products after spending 1 year in Vancouver in 2004. He has built a new plant (June 2008) and gone professional. Clearly one of the best and the most creative brewery in Switzerland.
Is exporting 20% of its production.

Hummm… I don't want to be harsh but I would say that the brewer has probably not finished his training yet … Another brewpub from this part of the country that needs to be forgotten.

Really not bad though their beers could afford a little bit more character (please consider I haven't tasted their beers since quite a long time). Check especially the St Nicholas.
