Re: Beer Beer Beer

The beer AND the place is nice - you'd have to be there to enjoy the beer and atmosphere

Re: Beer Beer Beer

I've tasted two Flims based Surselva Beers, both bottom-fermented with 4.9% alc. The company was founded in 2005. Marenghin must be the brightest unfiltered beer I've seen so far. Made with hop, it is mild and as such more of a thirst quencher. It tastes good, though. Blutzcher is made of dark malt but still a light beer. Probably a good introduction to darker beers without being too heavy. It was awarded a Bronze European Beer Star Award in 2006.

Re: Beer Beer Beer

Over the weekend sampled "New" swiss beer from

1)

"Brauhaus Weizenbier"
A Weiza from Brauhaus (http://www.brauhaus.li/) in Liechtenstein. One of the nicer wiezen I have had - I'm not normally a fan, but this was very drinkable. 5.0%, brewed to the Reinheitsgebot.

2) "Cargo Export"
A "new" Basel beer from the brewery Steinegger for the house beer at cargobar (http://www.cargobar.ch/). A Spicy 5.1% naturtrüb style beer, let down a little, for me, by a very strange after taste - will have to try some more not freshly shaken from the bar, but direct from the brewery (their other beers are normally great).

3)

"Basler sy em beer"
Finally tried this new Basler beer (http://www.baslerbier.ch/) "vom Fass" or ontap - unfortunately was not much better than from the bottle . Note that although this new beer is promoted to Basel, by a Basler, it is in fact brewed by the Brauerei Locher in Kanton Appenzeller.
A Pale Lager 5.2% with a flat light golden coloured lager, Small Head. No noticeable aroma. Lingering bitterness.


The beer & brewery tour continues

The country is Switzerland. The people are Swiss.

1664 is French. Google would have told you that.

Depending on where you were in France my good man that would be correct, where do you think Kronenbourg is brewed.

Re: Beer Beer Beer

Any label of Appenzeller bier is great! Another little secret which I'm hesitant to reveal is that the ETH bar at the top of the fernicular, below the main building is the student bar - open to the public! And they have an incredible selection (for Switzerland) at great prices. But shh!! Let's keep it on the DL...

Re: Beer Beer Beer

Hey guys, just tried a John Calvin beer today ... Calvinus ... from the café in the International Museum of the Reformation. Pretty ordinary blonde, really ... you'd think they'd do better than that in Geneva, for such a hero of the Reformation!!

That's because he did not drink beer mind you, but enjoyed a glass of red wine with his Sunday dinner or sometimes had a glass or two on a cold Winter evening.

Re: Beer Beer Beer



I just drank one of these now, a Berliner Kindl with some green Waldmeister in it. Without that Waldmeister in it, that beer is just totally undrinkable. eeewww.

I agree, it's drinkable but nothing exceptional. Does anyboby know where I can get Calvinus bière blanche in Zurich?

I've stocked up on Paul 01 and 04.

Among the big breweries in the Alsace (Elsass in German) are Kronenbourg (which includes the 1664 trademark), Fischer and Kanterbräu. I think, Kronenbourg is the largest and is sold also to "mainland France" and so dominates throughout France.

Re: Beer Beer Beer

After Eichhof was bought out by Heineken, a group came
out with Lozärner Bier. It was pretty good, German style
Helles.

Go into just about any pub in Switzerland and you'll find at least one of these three beers on tap: Cardinal, Feldschlösschen, Kronenbourg 1664. The question is WHY?? Switzerland is so close to Germany that it's hard to imagine that the Swiss wouldn't make good beer, but these "three" beers are really a good representation. However, if your like me and like beer that doesn't taste like well Budwiser. Here's some links of local breweries in Switzerland! Hopefully you can find some good tasting Swiss beer! http://www.bov.ch/cgi-bin/guide.cgi http://home.datacomm.ch/fiulijn/3.0%20swiss_map.htm If you have any suggestions on other beers to try or places to go, please post it!
Cardinal and Feldschlösschen are Swiss companies even if owned by multinational groups and Kronenbourg is from the Elsass/Alsace

As soon as they establish a new "production line" of their beer under the name Zwingli Bier, they might expand to Zurich !

Re: Beer Beer Beer

Does anyone know any extensive beer stockists around the Lausanne area? In particular I am looking to get my hands on some Cooper’s Sparkling or Cooper’s Pale Ale, but I also like to browse and sample randoms.
Thanks
