The bar is open plan within a public market so no age restrictions. Unless she tries to buy a drink of course!

I'm normally there with my 5yr old. Not a problem (at least that anyone has said).

You are the one that made it sound like there was something that needed special permission for. If it was just to be in a market, and you knew that, then why ask it as if you were going to be doing something wrong?

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

So... question of the day: Who's in?

I'll be around at six thirty-ish. Because at some point, I need to earn the money I spend on Punk IPA.

There'll be quite a few here tonight but... I have to close at about 8.15 (instead of 9) tonight as I have something on elsewhere, but there's plenty of Punk, even for you.

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

It's Pimm's weather and we serve the best in Switzerland, and probably the cheapest. It'll be flowing this evening and all afternoon and evening tomorrow

As it's a holiday tomorrow the Viadukt market will be closing at 6 tonight. We will be serving beer though until about 7 for anyone needing it!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

Well it's been a while since I posted on this thread (actually forgot all about it). I've just put on a fresh keg of Brewdog Elvis Juice Grapefruit IPA, so far the best beer I've tried from them. Fresh, hoppy with a lovely fruity sweetness too.

Only 2 barrels so I doubt they will last the weekend!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

I thought I'd update this thread to let you know that I recently changed the name of the smallest bar in Switzerland to The British Beer Corner (as so many people didn't realise Mousetrap was the name of a pub).

I've just got a delivery of beers from Black Isle organic brewery in Scotland. Red Kite amber and Goldeneye pale ale are on tap now but I have 3 others queuing to go on as well as a few others in bottles.

The bar is at the corner of the British Cheese Centre in the Viadukt Market in Zürich right by Dammweg tram stop. More info on our FB page here. Cheers!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

Dear Grumpy,

Did you also remember to order those beers that may appeal to the finer palate - like that lovely ginger beer (a 6% ) or that raspberry whateveritwas, and didn't you have elderberry there for a while?

Yours

Oops, I didn't see your question in the crazy run up to Christmas, sorry! Yes, I have 2 different Ginger beers now, a few ciders (including Wild Summer, A Kentish apple cider with Elderflowers).

But for proper beer lovers, on tap right now I have Brewdog Elvis Juice (Grapefruit infused double IPA) and a lovely pale Ale, Goldeneye from Black Isle brewery. Cheers!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

I got some great new beers from Fyne Ales in Scotland last week, so good the bottles of IPA's sold out but I still have plenty of Highlander, Jarl, Sanda Black and Mills & Hills Russian Imperial Stout. But I do have their Workbench IPA on tap (only 1 barrel and it'll probably finish tonight but more coming soon).

Also on tap is Bewdog Kingpin lager and in the queue their Punk IPA, Elvis Juice Grapefruit IPA and Dead Pony Club session pale ale. Also coming up, Black Isle Goldeneye pale ale and Hibernator Oatmeal Stout.

Cheers!

Re: Grumpy's Pub, the Mousetrap, is now serving

We've got a largish screen on the bar today and we'll be showing the England Sweden game at 4.00.

On tap today is Brewdog Punk IPA and Brewdog Elvis Juice - double grapefruit IPA. I also have about 40 bottles from Black Isle, Fyne Ales, Eden Mill, Anarchy Brew, Strathaven, Thornbridge, Sam Smiths and more. Cheers!

From today until 17th December we have a Monday Happy Hour offer from 17.00 - 20.00. All tap beer for 8.00 a pint (57cl) instead of 9.50. Tonight I have Black Isle Organic unfiltered Goldeneye Pale Ale and Goldfinch GF Session IPA (only 3.5%).

Cheers!
