The festival explorers: Marcel, TTT and Bov.

Following the incredible inflation of new registered breweries, the number of beer festivals in Switzerland is also getting pretty out of control. I would like – while it is still more or less possible – to give you an overview.

Below you will find a list of events featuring at least 10 breweries from my country. You will find a non-exhaustive list of smaller festivals as well as new ones at the end of this article.

My thanks go to the top Swiss beer tickers Thomas “TTT” Schneider and Marcel Vogt for great company during my “festival crawling” as well as providing me some useful information.

Have I missed something? In this case, I’ll be grateful if you contact me at bov@bov.ch !
