«Switzerland, a land of brewers» was the title of an article in the Swiss-German newspaper “Der Bund”. The article was built around the fact that by now more than 1000 breweries are registered at the Swiss customs authority. As in pretty much every newspaper article about this topic it also mentioned that this number means Switzerland has the highest brewery density per capita in the world. Considering each and every person in Switzerland “only” drinks 54 liters of beer a year, this sounds like an awful lot if not too many breweries.
The Swiss craft beer scene is very dynamic. It is developing rapidly, with dozens of new breweries joining every year. And Switzerland is our home. That’s why we pay special attention to the Swiss craft beer scene. Because we want to take Swiss craft beer a step further.
Bierversuche.ch is a craft beer online magazine and blog. We cover craft beer tastings. We write about beer awards. And we provide background information about the craft beer market and the (Swiss) craft beer scene.
