What does it take to successfully build a new brand?
In 2012, Philip Bucher and Jörg Schönberg founded the Doppelleu Brauwerkstatt (Chopfab) based on the belief that the Swiss beer market was on the verge of a transformation, with a clear focus on creating inspiring beer specialties. By 2013, the first craft beers with a unique and distinctive brand identity were already available on the retail shelves under the labels Chopfab and Doppelleu.
In June 2014, as part of the SEF4KMU growth initiative, the Brauwerkstatt was awarded the "SEF.High-Potential" quality label. In the same year, in October, the Brauwerkstatt received two Red Dot Design Awards: one for the overall brand appearance and another for the design of the Chopfab and Doppelleu bottles. In 2016, the Doppelleu Brauwerkstatt was honored with the prestigious SEF Economic Award in the Production and Trade category, considered the most significant Swiss award for young entrepreneurs.
In 2017, the Doppelleu Brauwerkstatt merged with Bière du Boxer, the largest independent brewery in Western Switzerland. The two product ranges complemented each other perfectly, as Yverdon-les-Bains exclusively produced bottom-fermented specialties, while Winterthur brewed with top-fermenting yeast. With this merger, Doppelleu Boxer AG became the largest independent and nationally anchored brewery in Switzerland.
