Re: Good Beer -- Where Can You Buy It?

I've never tried it, but there is this beer which often generates a lot of interest. I can't link directly to the site (E.F. rules and all that) ..



However, a name change may be in the offing . . .

It's not actually brewed in ing, and never was - in fact, the town tried to have the brewers blocked from naming it after their town but, in the end, their legal action failed and the German brewer had their way.

I thought that’s was a fact. 😂😂

Jokes apart, just the cheese is unbeatable :-)
British cheese is the best - especially the blues.


As for beers, as an earlier poster mentioned, Rio Getränkemarkt is really good for a variety of Swiss and imported beers - Sudwerk brew a few beers that I enjoy, as does Doppellau, and Rio has a variety from each brewer most of the time.

Also, on Quöllfrisch, I quite like their dunkel (dark beer) - and the Schwarzer Kristall is another drinkable dark beer from the same brewery.

The townspeople got tired of the nonsense and will rename Fuc.king to Fugging in a month, at the start of the new year.

I also forgot that you can get a lot of good beers, many of them on tap over the course of a month or so, from the British Cheese Centre at the Viadukt - but that's probably been said before ...

Re: Good Beer -- Where Can You Buy It?

My haul from Zurich last week. Mainly from Intercombistibles - Der Laden on Badenerstrasse supplemented by a few imperial stouts from the British cheese centre.

Re: Good Beer -- Where Can You Buy It?

I usually just drink a couple light beers a month, here in Switzerland, Heineken is my first choice. Müller Bräu lager is also a good light beer that is Swiss made.

I enjoy the German beers probably the most. Rothaus Pils is a simple and normally priced beer that's pretty tasty. I also enjoy the Ganter brand that is available locally in the Freiburg, DE area.

My tastes are pretty simple though.

Re: Good Beer -- Where Can You Buy It?

I thought I'd add a link to Rio Getränke's website, so you can check out their selection.

They have quite a bit, and I find their prices very reasonable - for example, if you're after some Bundaberg ginger beer (nonalcoholic), it's cheaper there than any other place I've found it in Switzerland ... and I've looked a bit ...

I'm very tempted to visit this British cheese place if there's real ale. Despite being profoundly allergic to cheese. Although I'm not against a German or a Belgian beer on occasion I just thing ours are better.

I don't have "Real Ale" as that does not travel. But I have a lot of British beers and many more British style beers brewed here in CH. Today on tap I have Prince of Ales, my own recipe Yorkshire Ple Ale, Kitchen Brew Session IPA and a NEIPA, Peaches and Cream brewed by 2 Scottish guys at Haarige Kuh in Interlaken.

But the 3 taps change regularly. Next week I'll have a Coffee Imperial Stout from Fyne Ales in Scotland on.

Re: Good Beer -- Where Can You Buy It?

We use this place

https://www.bierlagersbottleshop.ch/

For IPA lovers they have a great selection of Verdant beers from Cornwall as well as many others from the UK.

Fantastic selection, all tastes catered for, also at the moment free delivery if you order over 66 francs worth which is very easy to do.
Cheers!

Tannenzäpfle is great but Ganter is horrible. Tastes like Heineken but even more watery. It always annoys me that it's the only beer on tap in most restauraunts in Freiburg even though Rothaus is so much better.
