*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: The International, Luisenstrasse 7,8005
Price: Free entry

On December 9th it will be one year since I opened The International Beer Bar just off Langstrasse in Zürich and of course we'll be celebrating.

If you've not been to the bar before, we have 8 taps and between 120 to 150 bottles. roughly 40% are from Swiss micro breweries, the rest are interesting beers from around the world. Every week we have some new beers so the selection is always changing. We also have a small selection of wine, some great G&T's and a few nice single malts.

On the 9th December we'll be serving a few tap beers at special prices, 50cl for the price of 30cl and there'll be free nibbles on the bar for most of the evening.

I hope you can make it!

Nearest tram stop is Limmatplatz (trams 4, 13 and 17) then a 3 minute walk up Langstrasse, turn right at Lilly's restaurant and we're right next to the Riff Raff cinema

Is it not "down" Langstrasse?

(Culturally it would seem (based on personal experience) that Brits refer to North and South as Up and down - Up North, Down South. The Swiss tend to be more literal though - going up to Chur and down to Zurich).

Re: The International Beer Bar First Birthday Party

Yes, even though it is heading south, for me, it always seems like I'm going up Langstrasse. But if you prefer going down rather then up.....

Re: The International Beer Bar First Birthday Party

Oh how I miss proper ale... A good friend of mine's husband has just started his own micro brewery after years of hobby brewing (well, not that micro, he has a pretty big set up now and supplies local pubs and ale festivals) and it is fab-u-lous. We have run out of his stuff until we go back to the UK for Christmas.


I'm now very sad I'm A) too far away to realistically have a night out in Zurich and B) I don't have a babysitter. Mr RufusB is even more of a real ale fan than I am so I couldn't press gang him.


Congratulations on your anniversary. You must be chuffed to bits.


Best


Rufus

Re: The International Beer Bar First Birthday Party

Got a business trip that came up so won't be able to make it. But have seen on facebook that some EF royalty is joining... apparently it's not en vogue anymore to RSVP? Have a great party!

That's something that's been developing with EF for the last few years, it's not used as a socialising site anymore and I think it's partly that most of the EF Veterans now know each other in real life and FB has taken over for social life planning. The FB event for the party is pretty full already so should be a great night. Sorry you can't make it.

Unless you`re in Scotland when it`s up to Edinburgh. (And then down to everywhere else) My Grandad worked for the LNER. His house was painted green `cos he nicked the paint. My Grandma never slept a wink worrying that the railway police were going to find out.
Down from Oxford as well of course if one was rusticated.
