A friend of mine, who actually got me in to brewing, started in Switzerland back in 1997. He was unhappy with certain beers and styles and decided he was going to brew something that he loved to drink.

When it came time to sourcing for small scale brewing items, he had to have everything shipped from the US. Mash tun, screens, fermenting vessels...shipped everything except for ingredients. He made that abundantly clear. He's very fond of his "special" Swiss ingredients.

The guy now owns a small brewery in western Zurich. You can visit his site at www.hirnibraeu.ch He produces around 1800 liters of beer a week, currently.
