Brewer: Florian Schmid and Jan Czerny.
Above average lagers. A little bit more creativity (which can in fact be seen in some test brews) and everything will be ok. This brewery gets a growing success in the region of Basel.

"Brewer: Thierry Colin.
The first brewpub in Europe. Was opened as a reaction against the swiss beer cartel. Very good beers and enjoying a constant increasing of production. The bottled beers are brewed by Lasser in Germany and probaly ""only"" about 1'500 hl is produced in Basel."

This brewery believes in the myth of the Reinheitsgebot.

1 8.4 Client brewer. The beer is brewed by Locher. Another ruthless attempt to capitalize on the trend to drink local. And it is certainly by fortuity that they forgot to specify on the label that the beer is brewed far away from Basel …

A beer bar with 18 taps and 250 bottles. While the tap line is not overly exciting, you'll find happiness with the bottles choice (the majority is from Germany). Does not carry (for the moment) any Swiss beers.

Decent beers, not more."
