Most probably it's a mystic thing called marketing; don't know if that exists in your country. It's kind of a technique to get more customers.

Or in Swiss German: "aafixe"

But you know what it is like here, you'll taste a beer and before you know what is happening you are having a case delivered every week - with a 3 month cancellation period!

No, impossible, I'm Swiss. Maybe "accidental sarcasm" which also would be a great song title.

Re: Day of Swiss Beer / FREE beer

The last time somebody posted about free beer six people got banned and an entire thread got sucked into a wormhole only to re-emerge in an inaccessible part of the forum

Good luck Prof.

Just look to see if the free beer is sitting under a large box propped up with a stick.

Re: Day of Swiss Beer / FREE beer

Do these places offer free beer every weekend or just on that one occasion?
