We’re proud to welcome celebrated brewer Jerome Rebetez, owner of Switzerland’s BFM (Brasserie Des Franches-Montagnes) to The Bavarian Lodge!

BFM is a small artisanal brewery in Jura, Switzerland whose products, including barrel-aged beers, have drawn international acclaim. Founded in 1997 by Jérôme Rebetez, this tiny brewery has rapidly become known for making beers that stretch traditional beer style guidelines and use unorthodox ingredients. BFM’s products are made in small batches and hand-packaged at the brewery.

Meet Jerome Rebetez, learn about his passion for barrel-aging beers and using exotic ingredients, and enjoy three rare BFM beers; Two on draft and one poured from gravity-fed cask!

BFM "La Douze"
Jerome’s spin on the classic German Gose bier. Made with flowers of salt of Guérande, wheat, pale malt, spices, and lactobacillus for a crisp, bright sourness. Quite complex yet remarkably drinkable and balanced. Refreshing and quite sessionable. Don’t miss your chance to try this rare masterpiece, on cask no less! (5.5% ABV)

BFM "Spyke & Jérôme’s Cuvée Délirante"
A collaboration with Terrapin Brewing, this is a big beautiful rye barley wine aged in rum barrels. This glorious full-bodied collaobation has a tart woody aroma, a citric tartness, with notes of fresh cranberries and sweet caramel, finished of with plenty of oaky rum. Quite complex, but as with all BFM brews, absolutely lovely! (12.3% ABV)

BFM "La Tarry Suchong"
Made with Chinese Lapsong Tary Suchong tea leaves that are smoked over beech wood. Amber in color, with an aroma of smoke and caramel. On the palate, it is creamy and sweet at first, developing a bitterness and fruity smoke, marked by the bitterness and astringency of fine Chinese tea. (6% ABV)

No RSVP Required 21 & Over Only in the Pub, Please.
Casks will Be Tapped by Jerome Shortly After 6:00 pm.
Meet & Greet with the Brewer in the Pub Room from 6-9pm.
Available on a First Come, First Served Basis.
