*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Rapperswil
Event Type: Other
Location: Rappi Bier Factory, Schönbodenstrass 3
Price: Free entry

.... and here is the second of the infamous Rappi Bier Factory all day Ploughmans lunches for this year.

If you haven't been before, the Rappi Bier Factory brews just about the best beer in Switzerland (and officially the best Black Bier in the whole of Europe).

The British Cheese Centre will bring along up to 15 farm made British Cheeses to complete the ultimate Ploughmans Lunch, cheese with salad, pickle, chutney, crusty bread etc. The spectacular Chilli Pickled Eggs may also make a comeback and there will no doubt be some sweet offering too.

Price of the lunch is CHF 19.00 but you can come just for the beer or a small cheese tasting plate. Beer and cheese is of course on sale to take home.

Here's the thread from the first one last year, only 60 signed up from here but we had over 100 in all, this year we will be better prepared for the rush. There's also some great photos of the mid summer one here that did get rather wet...... but we did enjoy ourselves anyway. (thanks weejeem for the pics)

There are 2 more for this summer on the 28th May and 17th September, I wonder how many of you will go for the Hat Trick?

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

I would like to go, if anyone is heading from Basel and driving (I can help with gas), I'd like a ride.

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

As we did at the Event this past Sunday, I think it would be a fitting tribute to have folks bring pictures of Begga with them , and we can create a memorial collage...

If anyone (attending or not) needs to print photos of Begga but doesn't have the supplies or the time, we have plenty of photo paper (from regular to A4 and larger sizes) and a printer. Just pm me.

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

Really looking forward to this as it'll be our first EF event after finally making it out here. We are taking our two wee hooligan's with us, 6 and 2 years old respectively, so hopefully a few more of you will do the same so the kids can play together.

Praying for nice weather on Saturday....

We will be holding a collection for Beggas family and part of the proceeds for the day will also be donated. If anyone has any other ideas for the day to remember Begga and celebrate her life, please post them here.

tomatos!!!!!!!!!
.... it is. We'll have chocolate brownies served with cherry tomato's. This was Beggas creation last year when we had run out of clotted cream. Trust me, the combination will put a big smile on your face which is what we all need at the moment

The weather is forecast for sun and temps from 17 - 27 during the day with a chance of thunder later on - no rain forecast, but that's never stopped us before anyway.

It is, but you want to get off the train at Jona, not Rapperswil.

When you get off the train, follow the path on that side (that is, don't cross/go under the track.

Carry on, past a little playground and it opens into a small estate/parking place. You'll see the back of a Denner on your left hand side. Take the path next to Denner to the main road.

Cross over to the far side (there's a few roads meeting, you want to be going along the road at about 2 o' clock). The brewery is about 400m along this road (Neue Jonastrasse) on your left hand side.

You have a real Viking ship? That's so cool.

What's a sword cutter?
