We're at it again. The 3rd annual Swiss Craft Beer Festival is on for Sunday, Sept. 1 2013.

LAST YEAR ALL THE BEER SOLD OUT BY 5PM. THIS YEAR WE'RE BUYING MORE! If you want the full selection, don't sleep in.

We're putting together our THIRD annual Craft Beer Festival in the Rapperswil Castle. Last year we had about 1,200 people and expect over 2,000 this year.

Date: Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013 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.

What's up? We'll have 30 Swiss micro brews on tap, 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.

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

***we have all the volunteers we need *** thanks.

Cheers!

Gabriel and Stephen


P.S. Don't worry about the weather. It's in the courtyard and there is a fancy tornado tent. Thanks and hope to see you there. Additional updates will be posted soon to our website and Facebook page at:

There is room for about 2000 people at the festival. Don't show up too late in the day though.

Re: 3rd Craft Beer Festival - Rapperswil

Children are welcome. They can't drink beer though. We have non-alk drinks available.

Re: 3rd Craft Beer Festival - Rapperswil

Made my maiden visit to the Craft Beer Festival yesterday and thouroughly enjoyed it! Tasted some fantastic beers, thought the helpers serving the beers were very pleasant and helpful and it all took place in a fantastic setting!

Kudos

It is on again this year, and it'll be bigger and better than previous years.
