Switzerland have all the fresh water they need cascading down off the alps and what better way to make use of it than by brewing with it. The beers in Switzerland are made to complement an easy way of life. Skiing is the pastime of choice and a refreshing beer on the slopes is what you get. For years the Swiss brewing industry was controlled by a cartel of 4-6 Breweries who competed with each other, but in 1991 the cartel was ended and gradually more beers and breweries have been making their moves in Switzerland, with beer a big part of life it was only a matter of time before they started to make better and better beers and that is where we are right now. Beers that are good and only getting better.
