City/Town: Rapperswil

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?

just wondering if it is feasible to take the train from lausanne- when i check it seems quite easy, a bit long, but that's what uno is for

is it as simple as it looks from lausanne?
YEP...It is. IC or ICN straight to the main station in Zurich and then a transfer to a Rapperswil train (S5, S7, S15) and then about a 15 min walk or so to the brewery. If the weather is nice, it will be quite enjoyable. Hope to meet you tomorrow!

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

I just received a very kind message, but sadly I really can't come.

It would have been easy with the train...


Raise a Rappi bier to Begga for me, please.

GG,

My guest is a big prosecco drinker. Do you think you could gently persuade the brewery to put a couple of bottles on ice for us tomorrow? Thank you.
Sorted!.....

sbb.ch is your friend

Take the bus heading to St Gallenkappel Post (number 62238) from the station. Takes about 2 mins to the Zeughaus.

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

Is it too late to get the train from Geneva?

Can anyone put me on the couch/floor overnight?

Cat shall be fed.

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

Head on over to Rappi. I won't be there but if someone who is there can't put you up for the night you can come and crash at ours. I shall PM you my phone number just in case.

Re: The second Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

I'm sorry. It seems a long way to go. From Geneva, to Zurich. The others seemed to have decided not to come.

Bertrand - don't do it again. Once, twice, three but four oops. (Bertrand is known for not turning up)
Gata - work
Me - Sorry, it just seems a long way to go. I shall do it, but perhaps in happier times. But, as always, my thoughts are with you all. Have a great party for her.

Never mind I hope to make the next one too, the offer to stay at ours extends to then
