Re: Real Ale

For anyone that's interested, the Manager of the Gregory Pub in Zürich got in a variety of bottled real ales. I think the idea was to celebrate someone getting married, although I can't think who.

I can recommend the Badger Champion Ale

Re: Real Ale

For the ones of you who like Real Ale http://www.realale.ch/

This guy and I used to commute on the same train to work and I was very surprised to see his crowdfunding project for a new beer botteling machine on 'Ron Orp' the other day.

and btw, that manager is no longer working at Gregory but now runs the Kaiser Franz, which is just around the corner (well, around two corners) on Rolandstrasse. He still pursues the concept of having a large and constantly changing choice of international beers and microbrews available.

He now employs more competent staff and for some reason also attracts more and generally younger customers, although I do somethimes miss the occasional visual insight into the "business" of next door that the Old Gregory used to offer.

Re: Real Ale

CHF 6.- fr a PBR tall boy!

Philly prices: $3 for the PBR, and a shot of Jim Beam on the side.


edit: it's not even a tall boy, just a 33cl can

Re: Real Ale

Of all the good beer made in the US these days, Kaiser Franz selects the worst of the piss-flavored, corn and rice-based American beers of the 60's/70's to put on the menu. They should offer Schlitz and Genesee Cream Ale just for good measure

Going back a few decades I used to frequent an establishment which would do "crazy drinks at crazy times" promotions - one such promotion was a bottle of Schlitz (the l should have been dropped) for 10p for 10minutes. I was already at the bar - and stood there with my £2 to buy 2 bottles as was originally planned. I asked for Schlitz - handed over £2 - and got 20 bottles!

They only just managed to all fit on our bar table. But those £2 were well invested in the amount of "interest" we got from ladies of high moral standing looking for a "free" drink.

Re: Real Ale

Back in college days, the university tried to stop the raging party scene by banning kegs. This caused a serious dilemma, driving up our beer costs and forcing us to buy pallets of canned beer instead. To save a buck or two, we would buy look-alike beers. In the dark, crowded party room crammed to capacity with hundreds of people, no one ever suspected they were being given Boh Ice and not Bud Ice:



It also helped with the ladies- they thought we must've had some serious cashflow to give out name-brand beer (beer is/was free- compliments of whoever throws the party).

In reality Boh Ice was worse than Schlitz, though...but cheap. Cheap enough that we could fill the house 'emergency reserve late-nite' vending machine with it and still turn a nice profit at 50 cents apiece (no matter which button you hit - Coke, Sprite, Fanta - all that came out was cheap beer)
