Hi all,
going to be going to Switzerland soon for work, in the Geneva area - anyone know of any good beer over that way? Am guessing I'll be able to get some German stuff, don't know of any Swiss beers!
Cheers
K

Brauchen Sie eine ubersetzer? Do you need a translator?

There are alot of continental beers (from around the world) in Switzerland as well as many German brews. Wherever you go if you just ask for a beer you'll get whatever the locals are drinking.

Ein bier bitte! Be sure to use your thumb as one and your index finger as a two (with thumb extended)

When you want another one just say "nock eines" (knock I-nz).

Viel vergnugen! (literally "much pleasure" or as we would say "have fun")

You can find details of all the breweries in Switzerland here:

http://www.xs4all.nl/~patto1ro/swisbrew.htm

Switzerland has a very healthy microbrewery/brewpub scene.There are two ditinct beers cultures:

- in the German-speaking areas there are quite a few regional breweries producing lager
- in the French-speaking areas there are more new breweries and the inspiration comes more from Belgium
