"Brewer: Patrick Thomi.
Founded in 2012 by Jörg Schönberg and Philip Bucher, this ambitious brewery started its production in February 2013 with an initial capacity of 5'000 hl/year. Already one year later, it has been increased to 15'000 hl, then (2015) to 35'000 hl and finally to 100'000 hl since the end of 2016. The current production output should be somewhere close to 60'000 hl.
Acquired the brewery Boxer (Yverdon) in June 2017 and expanded as a countrywide player in less than 5 years. Became the 17th member of the Schweizer Brauerei-Verband in May 2015.
Offers exclusively top fermented beers in 2 different product lines: Chopfab (with 9 beers) and the more ""crafty"" Doppelleu with 5 beers in its core range and the serially numbered Brewmaster Editions. Brewed on a 80 hl + a 20 hl installation. Fills and distributes the beers from Bieraria Tschlin since 2020.
Good and interesting. And my top contender for the next buy-out by a worldwide player."

Brewer: Fritz Ledermann.
One of the very first microbrewery in Switzerland and started in 1992 bei Werner Ledermann (though it seems it has been officially registered only later in 1998).
Since 2005 and after the death of the founder, it is now his son Fritz who is pursuing the adventure as a one-man show. Brewing almost only between September and April, Herzbräu remains a hobby brewery with a very tiny output of 30 hl yearly. Despite enjoying a big success and having had different loan offers, Fritz Ledermann has no interest to expand.
Brewing exclusively (or almost ?) bottom fermented beers, this brewery like german-style beers without adherence to the Reinheitsgebot and is experimenting with different cereals. You can expect solid quality beers.

Originally called Hüslerbräu. Made a joint venture with Braukultur AG (owner of Oberländerbräu and Goldküstenbräu) on april 2009.
The production of the Usterbräu Export remained a weird and secret story as Aare Bier was involved as contract brewer ... It changed (partially) as an own brewery was opened in 2011 but a part of the production (maybe all ?) was still contracted brewed by Aare Bier.
Closed in Fall 2013 because of never ending difficulties.
And apparently started again in 2021!

"Client brewer (had register-number 311).
Two homebrewers got the wonderful idea to commercialize beers brewed in Germany (Engelbräu (Rettenberg/Allgäu)) in the region of Zürich and it seems that they are enjoying an impressive start. Clever and fine. But as they are using the ""drink local"" trend for boosting their sales, they will try to be consequent and build their own brewery in Zürich. This should be done by the end of 2010.
April 2010: the beers are now brewed in Switzerland by Falken. So it looks like they gave up the idea to build their own plant (I don't think this was ever an option ...). Their beers are available in retail business in the german speaking part of the country which very certainly made them pass over the 10'000 hl range.
Declared bankruptcy in 2012."
