Re: XXA Bier Factory Tasting in Zurich @ Mcgee’s

Are you going to start supplying them?

One of the main reasons we don't drink there, despite it being close to home, is the poor quality of their draught beer.

If they were serving Rappi Gold or your Mais beer, I could be persuaded to give them another go...

Re: XXA Bier Factory Tasting in Zurich @ Mcgee’s

I might be tempted to close up a bit early Tuesday and pop in for a swift one, things like this need all the support us proper beer drinkers can give.

I've been trying to get this beer served at the bar in the Viadukt, but despite Rappi Gold being the best beer in Switzerland, the guy responsible for making the decision doesn't like it. He's a wine expert and thinks that beer should be like Feldschlosen (although they do serve Appenzeller Bier on draught).

Keep up the good work SWISSG!

Re: XXA Bier Factory Tasting in Zurich @ Mcgee’s

We're looking at them as a possible partner. The fact is that Zurich needs better beer options.

Tomorrow night is a trial for us and them. We'll see how it goes. If it is good for beer lovers and for them then we'll begin--small. Tomorrow we're happy to have XXA to offer. If it goes well, I'm sure we'll look at the full line-up.

Regardless, hope to see you. Please introduce yourself to me. I'll be the one chatting up the beer!

Hope to see you there Grumpy. We can chat about the Viaduct bar. I lean toward XXA as the best beer but we can go ahead and give the title to the Bier Factory so we don't have to duke it out.

It's a revolution!
