Rapperswil Craft Beer Festival

We're putting together our second annual Craft Beer Festival in the Rapperswil Castle. Last year we had about 600 people and expect over a 1,000 this year.

Date: Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012 from 11-20
Location: Rappersil Castle
Cost: Free entrance. Tasting is 10 Fr. and includes a souvenir mug and the first 3 drinks. Additional drink tickets can be purchased.

http://www.bierfactory.ch/craft-bier-festival/?lang=en

What's up? We'll have 20 Swiss micro brews on tap, live music, and a nice grill going. The courtyard is covered by a beautiful clear tent so weather is not an issue. Pictures from last year's event can be viewed on Bier Factory's website.
www.bierfactory.ch


Additional details and a beer list will be posted once everything is finalized.

We're also taking on sponsors this year so if you're interested place contact me for more info.

Volunteers will also be needed. Once we have that info I will update this posting.

Cheers!

Gabriel and Stephen

Re: Rapperswil Craft Beer Festival

Anybody know how I can edit this post?

There's a mistake...it's the first 3 drinks, not 2.

Re: Rapperswil Craft Beer Festival

Only regret is that it is not Saturday 2nd June, that would have been very good timing.

Hopeful that I'll be able to go

Re: Rapperswil Craft Beer Festival

Sure! I would prefer a large selection of French Bulldogs. They are pretty bad ass.

Re: Rapperswil Craft Beer Festival

Please tell me that there will be yummy dark biers a plenty

Like stouts and porters or even dark ales like NewBelgium's 1554. Can't find much here in Chur, (just the Stout Superbock, Murphy's stout and Guinness) and I'd be willing to take the hour and a half train trip just to get some non yellow fizzy stuff, that is called bier here.

You can select which time(s) you would be available. I'm waiting for a few days before finalizing the schedule. Please sign up and I'll try to give you the time you would like to volunteer for.

Thanks for taking a look.

There are a couple of stouts and dark bocks--not an overwhelming amount as it's a summer craft beer festival, but those we have are damn tasty. You will not be disappointed by them. I imagine if I was planning a winter beer festival it would have more full-bodied stouts and porters than this festival. Alas, this is not a winter festival.

I'm abnormal , I like dark rich biers in summer and lighter bier in winter... maybe less callories in the winter to have to burn off

Re: Rapperswil Craft Beer Festival

Been away for a couple of months, hence only just discovered the volunteer link. Seems you have enough people, so I'm not expecting a call, but if ever you are short...

Looking forward to it
