25.09.2011 10:00 to 20:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Rapperswil
Event Type: Other
Location: Rapperswil Castle Courtyard "Schlosshof"
Price: 10 Fr. when drinking

Come out to the Rapperswil castle on Sunday the 25th of September for the first Swiss microbrew festival in Rapperswil. Biertreff 2011 runs from 10a-8p!

The Bier Factory has collected over 20 microbrews from throughout Switzerland to serve in a festival style tasting event. There will be a wide range of beer from ale to stouts and everything in between.

For 10 Fr. you get a tasting mug + your first three beer sample tickets. Additional sample tickets can be purchased for 2 Fr. each. There will not be a more enjoyable, affordable place to sample beers from Switzerland this year. Free to come in and look around.

One suggestion: come early. The beer quantities are limited and some will run out. So if you want the full selection, don't sleep in.

We're also serving up tasty bratwurst from the grill, beer brewer pretzels, and non-alcoholic drinks can be purchased. Home brewing demonstrations by Sios Homebrewing will be taking place throughout the day. We'll also have music. It will be a good time for the whole family!

And don't worry about the weather. It's in the courtyard and there is a fancy tornado looking cover over it which will protect us from rain.

Pics of the courtyard.

It's easy to find. Just look up to the castle and walk up to it. Location of the castle.


Thanks and hope to see you there. Additional updates will be posted soon to our website and Facebook page at:

swissbob, the sample/degustation mug is 150 ml and when one is sampling beer like these one should take it slow and enjoy. Some of these are also "strong" beers up to 8.15% ABV and we've made them all the same price. Don't come too late.

E. Neubauten, the weather looks to be perfect. Where did you see clouds?

Federica, you will be missed. However, if the BF is available you can send him for another heavenly experience. Great to see you last week.

Dougal's Breakfast, I've heard that stuff can kill you. Grumpy might bring by some cheesy samples...if we're lucky.

Cheers, g

A very civilised way to spend a Sunday afternoon - good beer and good company in a really quite excellent setting

Well done, guys - much appreciated!!!

Agreed - top day out. Great setting, weather, and music rounded it off nicely. Oh yeah, think there was some good beer to be had as well

Anyone know what the big cycling event going on along the lake was?

Great day! I'm tired.

Thank you all for coming out. I'll post a few photos in a bit.

The cycling was for Slow Up. An annual event.

Till the next one.
