I have by far not been convinced by their beers. Some have modest homebrew qualities and some looks very macrobrewed - in a bad way - to me.
Some of the production is/was brewed at Rosengarten.
This brewery believes in the myth of the Reinheitsgebot.

Owned by Heineken since april 2008. Formerly third biggest brewery of the country with 10% of the market. Mainly mainstream, low quality and boring lagers.
Since the middle of 2013 the production is bottled in Chur (Calanda). First step in direction of the closure of the plant in Luzern ?

2 13.6 Started as client brewer in 2009 and still is ! Presenting relabelled Aare-Bier (which did not make it a Lozärner Bier…). Their goal was to open their own brewery as soon as they will have a 2500 hl market. 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.

Brewer: Hermann Müller and Beat Eberle.
The biggest independant swiss brewery! Formerly called Lupo. Producing all possible types of lagers and special beers on customers demand. They are brewing for the supermarket Denner. Have a own brand called Römer Edelhell. Owned by Unidrink since 2005 and changed its name in Ramseier Suisse in April 2008. What is really strange about this company, is the fact they do not make any direct advertising on their brews. One could think they are embarassed about the fact they are brewing beers ...
