Typically 8 selections on tap, a few typical and a few international and sometimes out of the box. Also a great bottle collection. Cool well-informed staff. One of the best in Zurich.

Came here with friends on a Friday night and really loved it. The staff was very friendly and while it was crowded and lively, we still found a corner to sit and chat. Will be back!

I go along with a lot of what the previous reviewer said. Rudi is certainly a beer connoisseur, and I've known him since he was at a previous pub round the corner. My only criticism would be the price, but hey, nothings cheap in Switzerland!...More
