I hope that doesn't clash with the luzern cheese festival which is about then too. that would be uncool.
Pretty sure that's in October.

Appenzeller Beer is not all that bad.... Try it sometime.

.
had a case of it waiting for me on my arrival a month ago... I drank it, as I'm penny pincher, and to water the plants with it would have been alcohol abuse, as there is a wee bit of that in the yellow fizzy stuff . Tho (offtopic) I like the Appenzeller whiskey waaaaaaaaaaaaay better... 100% barley whiskey.

The upcoming craft beer festival will have two beers from BFM. La Cuivrée & XIV. Both are wonderful beers. They lean away from Jerome's traditional sours so I think more people will be able to relate and appreciate them.

Re: Swiss Beer Appreciation Thread

renewing this thread for Swiss Bier Appreciation, OMG
I just opened my first bottle of Schwarzer Kristall, Appenzeller Bier... it will not be my last bottle.
This is nectar of the gods! yummy and dark, not highly carbonated, head disappears nearly as soon as you set the bottle down from pouring.
Not hoppy but not missing hops, maybe it was dry hopped??? a quote
from the website translated to english. "A unique beer with thunder black color, born on a dark night for our beer lovers. Flavor and smell of dark chocolate - light roast coffee bouquet with blueberry surprise finish the beer drinker"

I have to say it's very close to what I remember Kona's Pipeline porter was like... no burnt coffee flavor... but coffee flavor. yum yum yum yum yum yum.

Love Kona Beer. Not to derail the thread, but have you tried their Wailua Wheat? BTW, Drinks of the World had a couple Kona beers a month ago; don't know if they do now...

And, back on topic, its nice to find Swiss beers that aren't as horrible as Quollfrisch or Feldschlossen... I'll have to give that Schwarzer Kristall a go sometime.

I did drink a bottle of the KWW while still in Seattle, my buddy is a fan of all the beers from Kona Brewery... it was out of my range of on the hoppyness level. I'm more a fan of dry hopped stuff... can't wait for the new apartment in August, I'm gonna start brewing my own.
I have really migrated to low carbonation beers, Nitro pours when on tap when not darker than amber... which is what I thought was going to kill me being here in Switzerland... the land of pale yellow fizzy water
I like Guinness, but I want a variety, 1554 by New Belgium and the like. I like Franziskaner when I journey into light biers and found a cheap likeness at the Coop, Valentines Weissbier, not exact but nice.
And on a hot day Widmer Hefeweizen. Glad to see Stella on the World Bier Market's shelves here in the train station in Chur.
If I'm offered Quollfrisch or Feldschlossen, I always politly decline
and I'm only able to drink Calanda on hot days too.

Just like Bud Light and Miller Lite in the US, I will only drink Feldschlossen/Quollfrisch if nothing else is available. Have you tried anything from Falken brewery? I've had a few of their medium and darker offerings before and generally enjoyed them.

Not yet, thanks for the suggestion, I'll start looking for them, I've only been here since July, and looking always to add a little diversity to my bier availability... tho someone would argue that I'm not diverse.

oh, I see they have a Zwickel Bier mmmmm love that style

All their products, from Quöllfrisch to the Holzfass-Bier, are all very good.

The rest of the Swiss beer market is appalling.
Sorry, but how many Swiss breweries have you been to? There is a great selection.

Don't be sorry... I have not been to any breweries, I have just searched for dark bier on the shelves in the Coop, Aldi and that Diener place in Migros...
I've been here since the 7th of July and I'm on foot and take the bus and train, if someone knows of an other place in Graubunden other than the World Bier Market in the Chur Bahnhoff to find porters, stouts, dark ale and dark lagers... I'm all ears.
I believe if one loves pale yellow fizzy water, there is a ton of beer to select from. I unfortunately do not like it. My dad drank it and I grew up trying it, it wasn't till I was in the Navy and sitting in an Amsterdam pub, drinking an amber bier by Hertog Jan that I realized I liked bier and that it could taste different from Budweiser.
While living in Seattle, my house was 5 blocks away from this place http://nakedcitybrewing.com/
I admit, I got spoiled of being able to have a different dark bier every time I went in for a pint. They have a rotating Nitro tap, and every other day they go through a keg and put a different one on... absolutely wonderful.

Re: Swiss Beer Appreciation Thread

For dark bier (dunkel) the Rathouse brewery in luzern is superb.

Ittinger klosterbrau is the best 'mass Bier' and that's a bit on the dark side.

What's wrong with kegged beer and nitrogen instead of carbonation?
