Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes (BFM) is nestled in the Jura Mountains in Northwest Switzerland. Started in 1997, and has been one of the pillars of the Swiss craft beer renaissance ever since. BFM's range of bottle-conditioned, top and bottom-fermented beers is as staunchly original as our region. The Franches-Montagnes (ancient French for "Free Mountains") are part of the Jura Mountains, along the North-Western Border of Switzerland. The region has been for centuries famous for its watches made by master craftsmen, a tradition still very much alive, but which has been joined over the years by some of the most advanced research facilities in the watch making field.
