The Brewery



Baumann’s is a nanobrewery in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. It’s output varies between one and two hectolitres per year of various craft beers, mainly IPAs, amber ales and the occasional stout. It is still very much in its experimental phase, with recipes changing frequently.

My name is Adrian A. Baumann, I am an information security professional who runs Baumann’s in my not all that copious spare time. I started brewing beer in 2013 with a beer kit from the Brooklyn Brew Shop. I realised soon that the effort to brew four litres of beer was not too different from brewing twenty litres, so I upgraded my equipment from pots and pans to a Weck autopreserving cooker first and to a twenty litre Speidel Braumeister later. Both of those see about equal usage, although the Braumeister makes brewing significantly easier, if not less time consuming.

Currently, Baumann’s beer is not for sale anywhere. If you want to try it, you’ll have to get in touch with me. I am planning to inform myself about all the legal ramifications of selling beer, but with all the different tax issues and food laws I am not sure if my small output justifies the effort. Watch this space however — I do have an offer from a local bar which would be interested in selling my brews.
