The Basel BeerTour takes you on an excursion into the local craft beer scene. Craft beer is becoming ever more popular in many countries, with small breweries sprouting up all over. However, this popular beverage was being enjoyed in Basel long before it began to be referred to as such: at the Fischerstube, where craft beer has been served since 1974.
The self-guided tour thus begins at this pioneer of Basel craft beer, takes a short detour into the world of international beer specialities and finishes up with a visit to an innovative and experimental brewpub. Seven different beers in tasting sizes await you.
Cheers – and have fun discovering the world of craft beer!
Tuesday to Saturday between 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm. The recommended time for starting a tour is 5.00 pm.
