Buy Tennent's beer in Switzerland?

My husband is a big Tennent's beer fan and I would love to buy some for him for Christmas. Does anyone know if there is a Website where I can get it delivered in Switzerland (without paying an outrageous delivery cost)? Or is there a store near Zürich where they have this beer? Or a Pub where they might sell me the unopened cans?

That's Tennents Super which is the lager the alcoholics on the streets of Scotland drink.
I think your husband would be thankful for your kind thoughts but i very much doubt he will drink it.

Before I moved here I was partial to the 'odd' Tennents but I am afraid to sat the only way to get it is to have someone bring over a few cans.

If you want to buy him a nice beer Augustiner Edelstoff is probably one of the best beers in the world and I am pretty sure he will love it.

Oh and btw, on the very rare occasion I go back to Scotland now I never drink tennents, after drinking Munich beer there is no going back.

Re: Buy Tennent's beer in Switzerland?

Sad, but true, he really does like Tennents. And, we know very well it is the drink of choice of the street people in Britain as we lived there many years ago. I would like to thank Manny again for his tip. I found the Tennents as he said at the beer shop in the Hauptbahnhof in Zürich (near the exit for track 43).

Re: Buy Tennent's beer in Switzerland?

I like to refer to Tennents as "Guest Lager" .. You always have some in the house and when friends come around, you give them some of that.

The hope usually is that they bring some good beer with them which you keep and furnish them with the guest lager.

Sure somewhere like britshop.ch or jims market could order it.. They are bringing stuff from the UK all the time anyway.

Yes, you can buy from Zurich HB but it's the horrible strong stuff though.

Re: Buy Tennent's beer in Switzerland?

I drank a can of it in Scotland in the Summer. It actually made me feel naseous. Horrible stuff, like that Amsterdaam beer they sell here.
