Brewer: Pierre Houle.
A microbrewery producing 3 beers (+ different specialities depending of the season) of belgian inspiration and the least I can say is that their beers are very good. A must try !
Stopped temporary in Spring 2009 as the brewers decided to quit but is running again now that they have found a successor (March 2010). Stopped again in 2015 and restarted in 2016 with a new owner again.

"Brewer: Jonas Calame.
Brewing at la Vouivre for the moment. Very uneven quality, going from very good to pretty dubious. The potential is clearly present."

"Brewer: François Daucourt.
Their beers made me a very bad impression some years ago (not a surprise for a brewpub in this part of the country) and a recent re-rate could barely correct it. But despite this, you should try their Body Check, a beer generously hopped with Nelson Sauvin (this helps to hide the failures ...).
Moved to Brasserie de la Fontaine in la Chaux-de-Fonds in October 2016."

"Brewer: Michael Fonteyn.
The shame of the brewpubs is back with an additional plant in Neuchâtel (open since december 2007). Bad weeds grow tall. Poor world …
The same brewpub can be found in Lausanne, Nyon and Genève."

Brewer: Mirko Dardel
A very small microbrewery which desperately fails to bring some quality in its beers. Closed by the end of 2007.
