City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Other
Location: Kitchen Brew, Binningerstr. 101, 4123
Price: Free entry

Kitchen Brew in Allschwil just outside Basel brew a fantastic range of modern style craft beers (I serve some of their British style IPA's at my bar in Zürich) and they open their brewery bar every Wednesday evening. Next month on the 20th they've asked me to come along and host a beer and cheese evening.

There'll be at least 10 beers on tap and in bottles to enjoy and I'll be serving a British Cheese plate with crackers and chutney. We'll start serving about 6 and I'll probably finish serving cheese about 9, but the beer will keep flowing later. If you're not into cheese, they'll also be serving Hot Dogs.

My cheese plate will include my best selling Godminster Cheddar, an aged Red Leicester and 2 others (your choice will also include a perfectly aged Stilton). I'll also have a small amount of cheese to buy on the evening, you can also order any of my special cheeses from my web shop and I'll bring them along for you.

I already have quite a few friends from Basel going and some are joining me from Zürich and beyond so it'll be a nice opportunity to meet some new people and try some great beer and cheese.

Cheers!

The 48 bus goes from the Basel HB and the journey time is about 12 minutes with a 10 minute walk at the other end.

Sounds great. I'll try to get there but have guests in our Chalet so can't be sure.

Re: Basel Beer and Cheese Evening

Just an FYI but the 8 tram also leaves from Basel SBB, leaving you with an 8-10 walk on the other end (Stop: Im langen Loh or Neuweilerstrasse) and is slightly more frequent (every 7 minutes) than the 48 bus.

Best of luck with the event!
