17.09.2011 13:00 to 20:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Rapperswil
Event Type: Other
Location: Rappi Bier Factory, Schönbodenstrass 3
Price: Free entry

Here is the last (planned at least, we may squeeze in another) of the infamous Rappi Bier Factory all day Ploughmans lunches.

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.

No doubt photos of the previous two will be posted as and when they happen and hangovers clear before this thread become urgent. But I am becoming a bit Swiss these days and planning way ahead.

Re: The final Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

It was an awesome event and I can totally recommend the Ploughmans Bagel Lunch and the Brownie's and Clotted Cream desert. Yummie, yum, yum!

Had a lovely time with my EF friends I know well already and so nice finally meeting Sky, SwissBob and Mrs SwissBob. I am and remain truly in awe...

Yay! This time I got to chat a while with MC and to meet Ms oh so cute MC too.

Also dear Teckla. What an all round beautiful dog you are and thank you so much for walking me. I so needed it and she was totally in charge of me...

Dougals Breakfast, Mathnut, Deep Purple, Ranga, JLF - guys, it was an absolute blast. Thanks for making me laugh long, hard and loud throughout the time we all hung together.

Debsta - So missed hanging with you today doll but there will be plenty more times for sure and get better real soon.

@Prof. T - What is there to say. You are one of my sickest friends ever! Hehe!

Re: The final Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

I missed you too mate, and the rest of you as well.

Totally gutted to have missed the last one of the year (tell me it aint so Grumpy). Feeling a bit more human, but I'll still be taking it easy on the couch today.

I hope I see some of you down at the 'dukt on thursday!

Re: The final Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

I had a lovely time yesterday at my first EF event. I still felt shy and didn’t introduce myself to all the people I so wanted to meet, but still managed to talk to a bunch of eminent EF-ers (mini BHBT is adorable) plus Teckla, which I took for a walk.
And since yesterday I’ve been having some wild (culinary) fantasies featuring Stilton…

Re: The final Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

Excellent event, so glad to see old friends and meet some folks I had wanted to meet for a long time!

Sorry I missed some of you since I got there too late, but I am sure I'll see you soon.

What can I say? Beer outstanding as usual, the cheese....yum! and those brownies were sinfully good

Cheers!

Re: The final Rappi Bier Ploughmans of 2011

It was fabulous, as always. Nice to catch up with friendly familiar faces and meet new ones, especially those who also had to go a couple of hours to it. The bagels were lovely, mini MC was psyched about the "raclette" on top.

Just sorry I had to bail out, I was fighting some on and off health weirdness and didn't want to disappoint my little one, who loves cheese and trains (we took 5 on Saturday, weehee).

Tekla is in fine shape, she must be really happy at Grumpy's. I am glad she didn't feel like munching on miniMC's rabbit.
