Tastefully Balanced

Unique beer. Fermento Brewery beers are crafted in our small family brewery with a focus on unique flavors and intense aromas.

Taste the craft!

Balanced beer. Our beers are produced through a careful selection and combination of ingredients. Our philosophy is to be able to taste every ingredient as you enjoy it.

That means balance for us.

Drink excellence!

More than good taste. Quality is at the heart of everything we do. For us, good beer is an important part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

We therefore recommend healthy and responsible drinking.

To your health! Cheers!


Great beers deserve great food. We are continuing our 20-year journey of discovery of beer & food pairing. Fermento Brewery’s roots are in Italy, but our life experience is international. We will always share our knowledge and experience in the field of food pairing with you.

Try something new!

Italianità. The Fermento Brewery is characterized by the concept of Italianità, which simply means joy and passion: a long table around which family and friends sit, wonderful hours together, the enjoyment of unique food and wonderful beers!

A joy shared is a joy doubled!

What our customers say about our beers

In the George Bar and Grill we offer exclusive drinks such as cocktails and a selection of the best wines and beers. We have selected Fermento Amber Ale for our customers as one of the 3 beers available in our drinks menu. Fermento Amber Ale is a modern red beer that is highly appreciated by our customers. They love its fine taste and the very pleasant aroma. Fabian Baumgartner – Chef de Bar @ George Bar & Grill

All Fermento beers are very well balanced. The aromas of malt, hops and yeast are all present in the beer and harmonize beautifully with each other. We like to serve the Fermento beers as a refreshing aperitif, as well as a good alternative to wine, as they go perfectly with a variety of dishes that we create for our guests, or as a nice end to the meal as a “nightcap”

Felix Suter . Chef @ Restaurant Schlüssel

Excellent craft beers, each with a unique taste. Good for an aperitif, in combination with food or just to chill out. My favorites are the Amber Ale and the Weizen, but all three are great and I’m really looking forward to new varieties in the future. The delivery service is also very efficient. I recommend them 100%.”

Sumire, Wädenswil

My Fermento year began with a soul child: the beautiful Bernstein. Strong-willed. A mature, balanced personality, crowned by a lively foam. Then a blonde came along. A sun-drenched spirit that chases away the winter chill with its golden hue and the promise of passionate Pilsner. A summer breeze blew through a refreshing wheat beer. Seductive in style, it surprises with an exotic Mediterranean mango flare. And then, as the fall nights drew in: a sumptuous stout. Hot cocoa bean. Hints of chocolate. A Swiss beer, a smoky ale that you can enjoy indoors in the warmth. Perfect on its own: better with cheese. Paired with praline – bravissimo!”
