Re: Swiss Beer

The Trüb/Australian Ale is the first Doppelleu/Chopfab that i tried and I love it. It might even be better than the Rappi Beer factory India Pale Ale

Thirding Doppelleu/Chopfab. They came out of nowhere and make some damn good beer. The Trüb/Australian Ale is my favorite.

Re: Swiss Beer

Sudwerk Gold Miner is my current favorite. The Coops around here sometimes (but not always) have it.

Recently I tried the feldschlösschen bügel and I think it is one of the best beers in Switzerland. I like it very much at shelf temperature not from the refrigerator.

What is the best Swiss beer?










Noteworthy also the Restaurant Falken in Schaffhausen just a 100 meters from the rail-Station



Lounge, Restaurant à la carte, Bar

As discussed on the other Swiss beer thread....

Rappi Bier factory
Brüllibier
BFM
Trois Dames.
Storm and Anchor

The Double IPA from Brüllii and Rappi Gold are my 2 favourites

The beer Festival in Rapperswil a while ago showed that there is quite a range of beers in Switzerland of real Quality, from Independent companies. Feldschlösschen is TUBORG and Halengut/Calanda are HEINEKEN

Re: Swiss Beer

I'm a big fan of Felsenau http://www.felsenau.ch/. Try Bärner Müntschi or Junker.

The other one I enjoy is Boxer (from Westschweiz)http://www.boxer.ch/cms/index.php/de/

Re: Swiss Beer

Chopfab also have a stout and American Red Ale in their range - both of which are very decent. Coop just stocks a couple of the Chopfab range - but Drinks Of The World has the whole set.

Re: Swiss Beer

One Bier that I tried recently is Oufi Bier from Solothurn.

It is very good, if you like the Munich style Helles.

I haven't tried their other beers yet.

Re: Swiss Beer

Best beer in Switzerland? I make it in my basement, for half the cost of specialty beer from Beers of the World.

Appenzeller is a nice enough main-stream Swiss beer. But you really need to try some of the micro-brews we have been suggesting before you says it's the hands down best. Because it isn't.

Re: Swiss Beer

I would check out your local Getraenkemarkt as suggested. We have two near us along the lake and I was surprised to find a really good range of 10 or so local Swiss beers from small breweries taking up most of the space (rather than the usual Feldschlossen). My favourites are Rappi beer and Chopfab - amber or hell but there were loads. Having previously been in despair by the tiny choice in Co-op, I was really impressed to see a good micro-brewery sector in Switzerland.

You don't have to buy in large quantities either, but you tend to end up doing just that once you get started!

Bugel became one of my go-to beers over last winter but I must admit, I quite like it from the fridge.

Re: Swiss Beer Appreciation Thread

Anyone know of anywhere outside of Grisons that sells the stuff they make at the Surselva brewery in Flims Waldhous? http://www.surselva-bier.ch/

I'll be visiting their pub again in January when I'm running a ski holiday there, staying just a couple of minutes from the brewery/pub/restaurant. They do quite a range of their own draught and bottled beers, but I've never found it on sale anywhere else.
