list of beers

"Brewers: Christian Schenkl.
Founded by a local businessman and opened on August 26th 2006 with a solid initial brewing capacity. The production went from 1600 hl during the first year to 4000 in 2011 and reaches about 6300 in 2019. The yearly production capacity has been increased to 9000 hl in 2019 but the brewery lost 24% of its production in the 2020 ""covid""-year.
Aare Bier has for many years been specialized in contract brewing (accounting up to 25% of their production): Goldküstenbräu and Oberlanderbräu (until 2012), Lozärnerbier (until 2018), Fischerstube Ueli Winterbogg (2009-2011), Falkenbräu Festbier (until Spring 2014), Züri-Bräu Original (2014). The covid crisis has been the opportunity to obtain more such contracts (Buechibärgerbier, BLZ, Berner Lohnbrauerei, Fäzäbräu). Brews also the Bier-Bienne beers. The company has 7 employees and offers 4 core beers in german styles and every leap year - well, in any case, rarely - some one-shots. Brews on a 20 hl installation.
Good quality but - by far - not enough diversity.
Member of the Swiss Breweries Association since 2021."

This family-owned brewery has been founded in 1828 by Fridolin Tschudi. It is nowadays run by the 5th generation and has 16 employees. Brews on a 60 hl installation. Its production output has remained very stable since the 70s (9'000 hl in 2017/2018). Almost all the production (95%) is sold in the canton of Glaris. The products were for a long time weak and unimaginative german-style beers but this recently changed. Offers 5 core beers and 3 seasonals in German styles as well as a ""Sagenbiere"" (legend) serie of 4 beers in so-called craft styles. Since recently also producing whiskies."

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.

list of beers

Brewer: Sebastien Degen.
Last beerstop before heaven is a slogan which even attracted THE Beer Hunter Michael Jackson (http://www.beerhunter.com/documents/19133-001665.html). This brewery - founded in June 2001 - was at that time the highest in Europe (it is btw not even the highest in Switzerland nowadays) at 1,627 metres and located in a former alpine dairy.
The Biervision Monstein is a stock corporation having more than 1'000 share holder from around the world. Despite having some marketing arguments, reduced costs thanks to a distribution (and probably bottling) deal with Heineken, this brewery still struggles to have some success and is facing financial troubles recurrently.The production which was once of 2'500 hl (mainly thanks to a nationwide distribution of 2 of its beers in more than 300 Coop supermarkets) dropped at 1'700 to rose back to 3'000 nowadays. This brewery has 7 employees and makes as much as 15% of its total revenue with guided brewery tours.
The beers are in my opinion unstylish and unexciting.
Member of the Swiss Breweries Association since 2021.

"Brewer: Andreas Menze.
Founded in 1960 this brewery got its name and logo from the first manager's dog, Aramis. Boxer was taken over in 1982 by the french brewery ""les Enfants de Gayant"", then in 1994 by the group Sharma of Bombay and further in 1997 by Löwengarten and some private investors. The brewery moved from Romanel/Lausanne to Yverdon in March 2012 and increased its production of 35% in 4 years. It has been finally taken over by Doppelleu to build Doppelleu-Boxer in June 2017 (effective from January 2018). The projected production increase is to reach 75'000 hl until 2021 (they were at 19'000 in 2005 and probably around 60'000 in 2019). A very realistic goal after the potentiel vacuity created by the closure of Cardinal in Fribourg as well as a higher distribution in the german-speaking part of the country since the last taken-over. Boxer has about 40 employees.
The range of their beers has been fully rebranded since they belong to Doppelleu. Nevertheless, don't except to find craft beer styles here but instead some uninspired, below average and boring lagers."

"Brewer: Patrick Thomi.
Founded in 2012 by Jörg Schönberg and Philip Bucher (as Doppelleu Brauwerkstatt), 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.

Founded by 3 teenagers in 2001 - Gabriel Hasler, David Paraskevopoulos and Reto Engler - the former and tiny Brasserie Artisanale du Dérochet has grown big. The three mates soon adopted the name of their first beer - Docteur Gab's - as their brewery's name and moved first to Epalinges (2004), then to Savigny (2012) and finally to Puidoux (2018). Professionnal since 2009, their constant yet slow growth has been drastically boosted by the apparition of the very ambitious la Nébuleuse in Renens (2014): 5'000 hl in 2016, 7'500 in 2017, 11'000 in 2018, 16'000 in 2020 and 20'000 in 2021). The plant in Puidoux has a capacity of 30'000 hl.
Offers 6 core beers and about 10 yearly specialties mainly in belgian- and english-styles produced on a 50 hl installation. The brewery has about 40 employees.

list of beers

"Brewer: David Santschi.
Founded in 1863 by Gottfried Egger at his return from the USA (where he also just founded a brewery), this brewery is nowadays run by the 6th generation. With about 15 employees this enterprise took advantage of the closure of the Gurten brewery and reached a peak of production with 30'000 hl in 1997. Unfortunately a lack of reaction to the new beer trends as well as an outdated traditional corporate image led Egger to continual decrease of the production output (nowadays probably around 15'000 hl). Offers almost exclusively traditional german-styles beers and limited editions called ""small batch"".
To counter these problems the brewery cuts some jobs and is outsourcing is production in Appenzell (Locher) since 2020. But a new plant should be built during the next months."

"Brewer: Dominic Kammer.
Founded in 1834 by Johann Guggenbühler as ""Brauerei zum Löwengarten"", Eichhof (a name taken in 1960) was once the 3rd biggest in the country and the biggest to be independant. This is now over. After having bought and closed the brewery Ziegelhof (25'000 hl, Liestal) in 2006, they have been taken over by the green giant Heineken in April 2008. The production was then 361'000 hl. It is nowadays very hard to say where it stays, as the production remains undisclosed. Since the middle of 2013 the production is bottled in Chur (Calanda, the main production plant of Heineken).
Eichhof is also importing foreign beers, like Beck's, Grolsch, Pilsner Urquell or Löwenbräu.
Offers mainly mainstream, cheap quality and boring lagers."

Founded in 1799 by Bernhard Fischer under the name ""zum Zedernbaum"". The name ""Falken"" was taken in 1860. After having reached a production high of 82'700 hectoliters in 1966, the brewery saw then a constant drop, 41'000 in 2005 and probably about 35'000 in 2013, yet rises again with the production of Müller Bräu since 2022 (exact numbers are undisclosed). The production can reach 600 hl per day with an installation renewed in 2022 (potentially producing 120'000 hl yearly). The brewery has about 60 employees.
Was brewing Striker Beer under contract (2010 to 2012) and some for Dr Gab's. Brews most of the beers from Müller Bräu since 2021.

list of beers

"Brewer: Stéphane Quellet.
No need to look very far: there is always a Feldschlösschen close to you, no matter where you stay in Switzerland. Yes, this is it: the biggest brewery in the country which controls 33% of the beer market (+/- 3% as the real production is undisclosed) and the giant every beer geek loves to hate.
Everything started when brewers Theophil Roniger and Mathias Wüthrich launched ""zum Feldschlösschen"" in Rheinfelden back in 1876. Twenty years later it became number 1 in the country with a production of more than 100'000 hectoliters. During the seventies Feldschlösschen shifted into turbo mode: 1970, takeover of Gurten (closed in 1997); 1972, takeover of the Valaisanne (which remains nowadays the only external production site of the group besides the main plant in Rheinfelden); 1974, the production raised above 1 million hectoliters. A bit later, 1989: takeover of Warteck (closed in 1991); 1991: takeover of Cardinal (which was closed at the second attempt in 2011). 1996 saw the fusion of Feldschlösschen and Hürlimann (Zurich) and an almost immediate closure of the plant in Zurich one year later.
In 2000, still facing an erosion of their sales (due mainly to a decline of the beer consumption per capita since 1991 as well to a constant increase of the import) the Feldschlösschen-Hürlimann holding decided to abandon the beverages to concentrate on real estate business. And so came the Danish giant Carlsberg ... More than 20 years after, the company is still facing tons of problems and is still losing on (at least) 3 points:
1) they are unable to compete with the very low prices of many import beers
2) they are unable to satisfy the ""drink local"" need of many consumers (the closures of almost all of their take-overs came at the worst moment and there is no turning back)
3) they are unable to satisfy the need of craft beers from an ever-growing part of the population, despite numerous attempts (some of them being close to marketing lies).
So my personal prediction still is that Carlsberg will drop out of the Swiss market in the medium-term.

Brewing on several 400 hl installations with a maximum daily production of 8'800 hectoliters... The production given on the left is an estimation; the real numbers remain undisclosed. Additionally, a huge amount of non-alcoholic beers (500'000 to 800'000 hl?) are exported to muslim countries."

Founded by Johann Gustav Hemmann in 1881, this formerly family-owned enterprise was run by 5 generations until 2018 and has about 25 employees. Brews 9 core beers and 2 seasonals in mostly German styles on a 160 hl installation.
After reaching a production high of 25'000 hl during the 60s and the 70s, it dropped drastically to 8'000 (~2005) before increasing again impressively to 25'000 again (2018). Since 2002 the logistic is handled by Heineken. Despite being conservative (don't look for craft beer styles here) this brewery bases its success upon taking advantage of the trend to drink local beers as well as upon a clever marketing.

"Brewer: Alain Morand.
Officially registered in 1999 yet brewing (and selling) beers since 1993, the former Brasserie Artisanale de Fribourg founded by Alain Morand and Miklos Dornacher is one of the very first pioneer of craft beers in the country. It took them almost 20 years to find a ""real"" name (Fri-Mousse) for their brewery. If I had to choose one word to define this brewery, it would be ""constancy"". Constancy in quality but also - unfortunately - constancy in their offering.
They are producing nowadays about 1000 hl yearly and their first plant in the old city of Fribourg is too small for that since many years. If this site still remains ""officially"" their production facility, it is in fact only used for small- or test-batches and for visits as well. The exact location of their plant in Düdingen (15 hl installation) is a well-kept secret. Don't ask me why..."

Heineken Switzerland (Calanda)

Founded in 1984

Kasernenstrasse 36

homepage
26 35 9.07

list of beers

"Nowadays Heineken Switzerland is the second biggest actor with about 14% of the market (~600'000 hectoliters - the real numbers are undisclosed) and 450 employees. They own two production plants, one in Chur and one in Luzern. Here we will talk about the one in Chur.
It all started back in 1780 when brewer Rageth Mathis opened the brewery of the same name in Chur. It is only much later - 1971 - than the name was changed to Calanda.
One year after its creation in 1984, Heineken Switzerland bought 10% of Calanda stocks. In 1991 the breweries Haldengut (Winterthur, 1843) and Calanda merged together and it is only 2 years later than Heineken took control of the majority of the stocks to eventually become the only owner in 1999.
After the acquisition of new brewing installations in 2002 (allowing in particular high density brewing) the plant in Winterthur was closed and only very few of the Haldengut brands survived and are still produced nowadays in Chur. Heineken is owner of the brand ""Ittinger Klosterbräu"", a beer developped in 1982 by Martin Wartmann and first brewed at Actienbrauerei Frauenfeld. In 1996 Heineken first steps in and the beer production was moved to Haldengut. Later in 2004 Martin Wartmann decided to let its baby live its life and sold all the rights to the green giant. Using the beloved concept of abbey beers this beer is brewed partially using hops harvested near a former Carthusian monastery in Canton Thurgau (Kartause Ittingen). And no matter if it was dissolved more than 150 years ago: the marketing still talks about the only Abbey beer from Switzerland ... And it has some undisputed success with about 20'000 hectoliters yearly.
Besides brewing the brands Calanda, Halden Gut and Tell, all the Heineken destined for the Swiss market are produced in Chur. The company also markets foreign brands like Desperados, Tiger, Murphy, Erdinger, Moretti, Foster's, Newcastle Brown Ale, Clausthaler, VB and Sol. It is worth mentioning that the effort to introduce the brand Amstel across the whole country encountered a terrible flop and had to be stopped in 2008.
Facing an impressive growth of beer imports and an equally impressive increase of the number of microbreweries in Switzerland, Heineken is losing each year some market shares. This leaves the company with a big beautiful plant producing probably not more than at 50% of its capacity (it can bottle 36'000 cans, 80'000 bottles and 480 kegs per hour). Which will probably induce a further consolidation and a possible middle-term shutdown of their second plant (Eichhof, Luzern).
Their beers are deeply uninspired and uninteresting.
Brewer: Markus Scharlemann."

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.

"The family Locher bought the brewery ""in Appenzell"" (1810) back in 1886. This family-owned enterprise, run by the 5th generation, has 100 employees and is one of the most ambitious national breweries, enjoying an impressive growth (12'000 hl in 1994; 60'000 hl in 2008; 140'000 in 2010, more than 300'000 in 2018 and about 400'000 to 450'000 hl nowadays which makes of Locher the biggest independent brewery in the country). It is also the most important contract brewer in the country and produces beers for 1936, Ackermann, Mein Emmental, Ela Bier, Calvinus, Komturei Tobel, Wyssestei, Egger (since 2020) and Hopfentropfen and probably more. Locher is exporting about 4'500 hl yearly and is producing on 2 different places in Appenzell (Industriestrasse 12 and Brauereiplatz 1) with a 200 and a 40 hl brewhouse. The smallest brewhouse is used since 2023 to produce a brand called ""Locher Craft""... Interesting fact: it was the first brewery ""online"" back in 1991!
Some original beers and offering basically solid and well-made german-style products."

"Brewer: Simon Neuhold.
It was in 1897 that Hans Müller bought the brewery Johann Weber, started 11 years before. This family-owned enterprise is nowadays run by the 4th generation and has 50 employees. Besides beer production, Müller is also trading beers from other breweries as well as wine and non-alcoholic beverages. Beside mostly german traditional styles, this brewery offers a Pale Ale, a Red Porter and a Dry Stout. All of them being fairly decent. The production is undisclosed (which is rarely a sign of growth) and the number on the left is from 2013.
The production has been outsourced to Falken in 2021 and the brewery built a brewpub on the same place with a 12 hl installation in November 2022. The beers brewed there are marketed under the name ""Müller Bräu Handcrafted"".
In fact not registered at the Federal Customs as the taxation is handled by Falken."

list of beers

Brewer: Hermann Müller and Beat Eberle.
The second biggest independent brewery in the country. The company Lupo - founded back in 1918 as a producer and distributor of cider - started to brew beers in 1963. Producing all possible types of mainstream pale lagers and special beers on customers demand. They are brewing for the supermarket Denner and for Landi (130'000 hl of Farmer beers). Have a own brand called Römer Edelhell.
Firstly taken over by Granador, Lupo will then lose its name when its owner merged with Pomdor to create Unidrink in 2005. Later (April 2008) the company - which produces and distributes drinks like Ramseier, Granador, Sinalco, Elmer and Pepsi - changed its name to Ramseier. What is really strange about this company, is the fact they do not make any direct advertising on their brews. Of course, with that many soft drinks, beer is almost a side job to them, but one could think they are embarassed about the fact they are brewing beers ... Has a high-end can bottling machine since 2014 which allow them to produce the Farmer Bier from Landi in cans (they were before produced in Germany).
Don't expect to find mind-blowing beers here...

list of beers

Brewer: Alois Gmür
Founded in 1872 by Joseph Thorner, Rosengarten - which took its actual name in 1900 - has always been a family-owned and independant company. Very successful in its region, this brewery has more than doubled its production since 1990 to reach about 23'000 nowadays. It has 23 employees and a brewhouse of 60 hl.
Specialized in alternate grain beers, Rosengarten is producing the first corn beer of Switzerland (Maisgold) since 1980 and a spelt beer (Dinkel) since 1996. Produces only bottom-fermented beers (except the Weizen) of german traditional styles. Is exporting 4 beers to the USA (new names of existing beers). Produces beers for Gottardo, Entlebucher Bier, Lanzbier and Pfauenbier under contract.
Their fierce adherence to german traditional style is less a problem to me than the lack of character of their beers.

19 14 11.41

list of beers

Brewer: Ludwig Stranzky and Heiko Fahrenbruch.
This more than 150 years old family-owned brewery started in 1866, founded by Christian Indermühle. His two sons were forced to sell it to the family Hofweber (at that time owner of Schloss Reichenbach in Zollikofen). In 1935 both breweries (the one in Interlaken and the one in Zollikofen) merged to create the “J.Hofweber & Cie AG und Gebr. Horn”. It's in 1968 that Rugenbräu AG was born and three years later that the plant in Zollikofen was closed. Rugenbräu has nowadays about 60 employees and has seen its production increasing after the closure of the Gurten brewery in the late nineties. It is no more the case recently, as the total lack of innovation from this brewery is leading it to stagnation (in the best years) or to losses. Brews about 8 core beers in German styles on a 150 hl installation.
Expect uninspired and at best average german-style products. In fact this brewery does not give the impression to really care about their beers as it seems more concerned about its own whisky (on the market since 2008) or its soft drinks. The exact production output is undisclosed and the last estimation I have (40'000 hl) is from 2016.

Founded in 1779

St. Jakobsstrasse 37

33 37 11.68

list of beers

Brewer: Johannes Schmalzl.
It was 1779 as Johann Ulrich Tobler acquired the real estate of a shooting club in St. Gallen - thus the name and logo - and started the Schützengarten brewery with his brother. The brewery - whose structures are still nowadays on the same place as when it was founded - owes its actual size to Arnold Billwiller who succeeded to increase its production from 7'200 hl to 100'000 hl at the end of the 19th century.
Schützengarten which is surrounded on one side by 2 multinational companies - Heineken and Carlsberg - and on the other side by numerous and more flexible microbreweries, has succeeded until now to remain stable, partially thanks to the acquisition of the brewery Löwengarten in 2006. But the brightness (or not) of its future will depend of its capacity to innovate which looks indeed not bad at all (Gallus beer launched in 2012, IPA and Swiss Stout in 2016 as well as the take-over of Birrificio Ticinese and the opening of the brewpub Brauwerk 1779 in 2018).
Schützengarten is the oldest Swiss brewery still in activity since the closure of Schloss Reichenbach in Zollikofen in 1971. This record is a bit disputed as the discovery of old documents proving the existence of brewing activities in Appenzell as soon as 1778 may change things. But a link between those activities and the brewery Locher still has to be proven.
Has about 220 employees and a 300 hl main installation.
You can expect here almost only bottom-fermented german-style beers, some of them like Landbier or Klosterbräu slightly above average and others being IMHO poor and boring. But don't miss their entrance in the world of craft beer with Gallus, IPA and Swiss Stout

A pioneer of the new beer era in Switzerland (founded 1997).
Where some see a sustainable success, I for myself wonder about a depressive immobility. Produces nowadays between 600 and 800 hl (light sinking). A hugely discrete brewery which uses very few marketing and never participates to beer festivals. Brews probably one of the most static range of products with 5 core beers + one for Christmas; and the same ones since about 20 years. Beer styles is an unknown concept to them and their beers - pretty decent by the way - are defined by their colors."

"Brewer: Steffen Pawlak.
This family-owned brewery is led nowadays by Claudia Graf (5th generation) and employs 40 persons. Everything started back in 1891 when Eduard Graf - known for his slogan ""the freshest beer is always the best"" - began to brew in the tavern ""zur Sonne"" in Rebstein. The very promising start was shocked by World War I and by the death of the founder in 1918. The efforts of his two sons were then slowed down by the economic crisis and World War II thus it was only later during the sixties that the brewery was finally able to grow, surpassing the 20'000 hl.
In 1978 Sonnenbräu launched the first light beer of Switzerland.
While a lot of breweries are hiding with a certain shame the fact they are using corn, others like Sonnenbräu use this as a marketing argument.
Despite its size - which gives it some flexibility - and despite not beeing religiously bound to the Reinheitsgebot, this brewery does not show much pep for innovation (and please don't tell me beers like Craft1 or Maisbier are innovations ...).Expect almost only german-style beers, some of them good (like Annett's Büezer) and some of them pretty bad (like the Doppel-Bock).
Brews Züri-Hell and Illauer Punt under contract. However it seems like the former is since recently produced by Braukultur (Usterbräu). The production is about 32'000 hl (last source: 2017). Brewing installation of 94 hl."

list of beers

Brewer: Christian Krucker.
Started in 1858 by Joseph Alois Krucker, Stadtbühler has remained a family brewery until nowadays and it looks like nothing can disturb its tranquility and independence. Its production output has been very constant during the last years. The brewery has actually 14 employees. See also www.stadtbuehler.ch. Brewing on a 75 hl installation built in 1933.
While some of their products - like the Dunkel or the Fürstenbräu - can be really nice, others may be boring at best or even dubious. You can expect almost only german-style beers here (yes, we are very close to Germany) yet a Smoked beer, another dry-hopped and a last one with millet (the Hirsegold (http://www.hirsegold.ch) brewed under contract) are giving some hope ... Brews also Nubiabrew, Hum and some Napf under contract.

Production: 6'000 hl

"Brewer: Michael Ruppert.
It was 1865 when the Dutch pharmacist Maurice de Quay started to brew beers. The name he gave to the brewery was then St. Georges, a name kept until 1926. At that time the Valaisanne was producing 13'000 hectoliters per year. After a modernization of its equipments in 1951, the brewery started an expansion. It was 1972 when Feldschlösschen took over the Valaisanne which had then an ouput of 70'000 hl. Since reaching a top of 90'000 hectoliters in 1993, the brewery has been constantly losing market shares (60'000 in 2005 and probably less nowadays though no official numbers are disclosed).
Luckily for Feldschlösschen, they forgot to close the Valaisanne after the take-over which allows them to produce ""small"" batches and to practice some very nice examples of craft-washing. Offers mainly modest lagers but, to be honest, the Zwickel, the Ämrich Weizen and the Pale Ale are pretty decent. Check also their newest creations.

"Brewer: Tomasso Stettler.
Started 2014 by Nicolas Roberti as a client brewer in Verbier (brewed by Brasserie des Géants, Belgium). The own and ambitious brewery opened in 2016 and is surely the most ""crafty"" brewery in the country. The capacity is increasing very fast, going from 6'000 hl to 12'500 hl (mid-2018). It has about 16 employees and offers a huge diversity and a great quality: 5 core beers, many one-shots and many collabs. Hosting CôteWest Brewing and l'Échappée as gypsy brewers. Exports to France, Denmark and Italy (about 40% of the production). Member of the Swiss breweries association since November 2018.

The second brewpub on this part of the country (after les Brasseurs Genève). Has during very long time offered beer styles in supposed english inspiration and with a denomination by colour which was a typical disease imported from France. The Brasserie du Château was until recently an historical snapshot of something typical in the era 1997-2007. Their offering is nowadays different (Gose, Session IPA, Sour DDH, ...) so you may want to check if the quality changed also. Introduced cans in 2019.

list of beers

Brewer: Jürgen Pinke and Cindy Weissenberger.
Forced by the Swiss beer cartel to sell Anker-Bier from Frenkendort instead of the beloved local Warteck in his restaurant, Hans Jakob Nidecker chose to react and started brewing his own beer (Uelibier). It was 1974 and this made of Fischerstube the first brewpub of modern times. It was the first brewery in the country to sell Weizenbier on tap (1977). Since 2005 Uelibier is also available in bottles (brewed and bottled by the german brewery Lasser). The production has since then constantly increased (5600 hl in 2015) and even of 30% in 2017 after the introduction of canned beers. It should be nowadays around 8'000 hl (probably about 1500 to 2000 of them produced in the brewpub) yet I have not seen official numbers since 2015. The brewery has 8 employees and is still a family business.
Offers mainly german traditional beer styles (decently good ones) and from time to time some IPA or Stouts. About 7 core beers and 5 seasonal.

Production: 8'000 hl

Brewer: Andreas Müller.
Founded in 2007 as a stock corporation (more than 400 share holders), this brewpub is opened every day (except on Sunday) from 16:30 to 00:30 and employs 3 people. The main initiator - brewmaster Andreas Müller - worked before at the breweries Gurten, Egger and Löwengarten. As the latter was closed in 2006 as a consequence of its taking over by Schützengarten, Andreas Müller decided to fulfill his dream by opening his own brewpub.
After a first year at 750 hectoliters, the production is steadily growing. It reached 900 hl in 2013 and about 1'300 nowadays.
After a deceptive start regarding quality, they made great improvements. Beside different german-style beers this brewery also offers a Porter, a honey beer and of course an IPA (a mandatory style since some years).
Member of the Swiss Breweries Association since 2021.

Opened a bigger plant in Biel (Seevorstadt 79) in September 2019 and a smaller one in Juli 2023 in Wangen an der Aare (Brauerei BÜR).

Started in September 2019 and brewed on the same installation as Lynx Movement until 2022. Switch then to a client brewer status (contract brewed at la Nébuleuse). Facing solid problems since the end of 2023 as importants distributors stepped out in reaction to the disclosure of sexual abuses in the abbey. They lost also a projected contract with WhiteFrontier, where their beers should have been brewed after leaving la Nébuleuse. Facing also a very dark future...
This brewery relies on a clever marketing, claiming to produce the only abbey beers in the country and using 700 years old yeast found on a parchment.
Offers beers of decent quality in belgian styles.

An ambitious company which planed at its start to control 10% of the beer market from Ticino and to reach 2500 to 3000 hl after 2 years. Until the local plant is built, the beer is actually brewed by Rosengarten. But after many years there is still no brewery to see and the company has to face financial problems. Will their dream comes true ? For myself, I'm ready to bet on a negative denouement.

2 8.6 Not a brewery but a Client brewer. The beers are brewed elsewhere in the country (Turbinenbräu) and were at sometimes even brewed in France. This fact was originally maintained secret, probably because of the importance of the marketing aspect to brew local beer. The status of la Belle de Genève was quite unknown in 2004. They had to face some financial problems and closed the Brasserie Artisanale de Genève (which probably never really existed ...). They came back in march 2005 with the ambition to build a brewery in Genève.
It looks again a bit different since 2007 as the phone number and email published on the contact list are no more valid and it seems you have to make your orders via the webmaster ... Very strange.

Back to Burgdorf since October 2016 with a brewing installation of 12 hl. Employs 3 people and opened their own bar in Spring 2021. Using its own wild yeasts, this brewery is inspired by the belgian farmhouse tradition and offers 6 core beers and many one-shots (some of them barrel-aged).
Talented people, interesting, creative and very good beers. Clearly a top ten brewery in the country.

After 2 infected beers, a partial amelioration in the re-rate and a 3rd beer with similiar problems than the first 2, this brewery stays for me as a no-go. Please note that the brewer categorically rejects any possibility of infection. So the best is to try for yourself and make you your own opinion.

23 7.62 Founded in 1788 by François Piller this brewery changed its name many times in its first 100 years. It chose its last name after the pope made the bishop of Fribourg a ... Cardinal in 1890.
In 1970 5 breweries joined forces to form the Sibra Holding (Cardinal, Beauregard, Comète, Salmenbräu and Wädenswil). It was 1996 when the Feldschloesschen-Huerlimann-Holding Group - which in the meantime purchased the majority of the capital from the Sibra Holding - announced the the closure of Cardinal. But Feldschloesschen had to face with serious resistance from the beer-lovers of the french-speaking part of the country. The sales dropped down and they had to come back on their decision.
Finally, the decision fell on August 2010: the plant will be closed on June 2011. The reason is the outsourcing by Carlsberg (owner of Feldschlösschen since 2000) of 20% of the production from the Feldschlösschen Group. The plant in Fribourg being used at 40%, it seems logical that Feldschlösschen chose to regroup the production in Rheinfelden.
The brand Cardinal is still brewed nowadays (in Rheinfelden or in Sion, no idea): the Blonde, Spéciale, Blanche, Draft and Lime Cut.

The production has been stopped in 2013 (apparently after financial troubles) and the initiator retired. The brewery is no more registered and the beers were then produced by Liechtensteiner Brauhaus. Introduced a new brand - Bündner Bier - in 2014. Or when locality gets loosely defined ... Yet ! Came back in the canton in 2017 as the beers are now brewed by Tschlin.

After some time they have found investors but the start of their own brewery has been many times postponed (now scheduled for Spring 2017). The amount of the production is undisclosed. Lost twice in justice (2017, 2018) where they were accused of false local marketing and closed shortly after.
