From what I've heard there are a lot of people coming to the beer festival. Make sure you say hello when you're there. I'll be the one running around making sure everything is perfect for you all!

And I should add that we're doing some special BBQ pork sandwiches and we'll have bratwurst / beer pretzels available. Only the classics.

Might join you (if I do not get a 'volunteer' call(, but for logistical reasons looking like a long shot. I love the idea as well, still have not done Buerkliplatz to Rapperswil by boat...

Hi C123,

I'm currently all booked up for volunteers but I have your info. Thank you so much for the offer. If something changes you will get a call! Hope to see you Sunday.

Re: Rapperswil Swiss Craft Beer Festival

I have a question for you all...

In setting up the tables for the festival, last year we went with a few of those wooden festival bench seats and then the other tables were round cocktail style where you stand. It worked pretty well.

I'm leaning toward getting rid of the bank seating and using large round tables where people can sit at. Mostly my reason for this is that I hate those bench seats.

Any opinions?

Re: Rapperswil Swiss Craft Beer Festival

Thanks to all of you who came out for the day. I'll be posting pictures soon. We'll be doing it again next year for those who missed the event. Not sure on the date yet but it will happen.

Re: Rapperswil Swiss Craft Beer Festival

It was a lovely atmosphere yesterday. A delight to drink RappiGold fresh from the tap.
