Hoppy people was established in 2016 by two hops lovers, Olivier Brighenti and David Bonjour. Hoppy People follows in the footsteps of the craft beer revolutionaries of the early 80’s from the USA and Scandinavia.

After 5 years of homebrewing, we make the plunge and purchase a 10HL brewing line and 6 fermenters of 2,400 liters each. The brewery will be located in the Sierre industrial park, in Valais, in a warehouse covered with solar panels; which allows the whole production process to be powered by clean energy. A nice feat as Sierre is the sunniest town in Switzerland.

Our core range includes 5 hop-forward beers (Pale ales, various IPAs) and a Belgian Strong Ale. One-offs are also produced every few weeks/months in an effort to explore the never-ending possibilities of beer-making and to bring you new sensory experience (Imperial Stout, Red Ale, Barley Wine, Gose, New England IPA, etc…).
