"Brewer: Christian Schenkl.
Opened on August 26th 2006. A brewery started with lot of ambitions considering the brewing capacities and enjoying a lot of success at fast speed. Some contract brewing: Goldküstenbräu and Oberlanderbräu (until 2012; same beers as Kellerfrisch and Amber), Lozaernerbier (same recipe also), Fischerstube Ueli Winterbogg (2009-2011), Falkenbräu Festbier (until Spring 2014) and Züri-Bräu Original (since 2014). Good beers but by far not enough sorts and creativity.
Has been able to grow further despite a reduction of contract brewing (was once about 25% of the production, today probably only about 10% though the new contract with Züri-Bräu could be interesting).
Creativity level: 1/5"

"Brewer: Max Egger.
A family brewery which took advantage of the closing of Gurten. Unfortunately brewing far below average lagers. Where are the creativity and the quality ? They will have to react, because with their approach made in 20th century, they will continue to drop down their production (they are losing actually about 1'500 hl each year)."

Brewer: Josef Meier
It's one of those breweries which have taken advantage of the trend to drink local beers instead of those from the national breweries. Some decent beers and a recent capacity to adapt to the new trends. The distribution is since march 2002 under control of Heineken. This brewery is enjoying an impressive growth.

A brewpub was originally planned but a suitable place could not be found. This microbrewery - which is a joint-stock company - produces two year-round beers (Helles and Weisses) and different seasonal specialities. It is enjoying a good growth having more than doubled its production between 2014 and 2015. Expect some generally nice german-style beers but also the mandatory incursion in the IPA world (with some success).

"This 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. 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 or its soft drinks.

Big local and, once upon a time, above average beers. They are brewing 3 beers (Helles, Märzen and Weizen) + about 10 different styles each year. Innovative and creative, yes. Quality ? Not always. Some beers are offered unmatured. But it is worth a try anyway, even more as they now have a good period."

Sour and interesting with some mistakes. That's what can be said about those beers. Apparently first known as la Vadaise and closed now (well not exactly, but only brewing for friends)"
