Zurich Beer Festival in Alstetten Zurich

Love beer? Then why not pop down to the Zurich Beer Festival, or “Zürich Bier Festival” as it is known, where you can get to sample up to  300 national and international beers all in one place. Not known internationally for its beer culture, you might be surprised to learn that Switzerland has the highest density of breweries in the world. Indeed, for every 8500 inhabitants there is one brewery.

Taking place at the Spirgarten Theater in Altstetten, Zurich, the Bier Festival proves that there are plenty of great beer producers in this country.

Pro Bier Organise the Zurich Bier Festival

“ProBier”, which was launched in 2015 by CEO Markus Forster, is the organisation behind the Zurich Beer Festival and from the outset the event has been a great success.

This year’s focus is on Belgium and Russia. The event is primarily aimed at helping beer aficionados to discover new varieties for themselves and to make contact directly with the brewers. There are workshops too, to give a deeper insight into the world of beer making. Some brands are exclusive to the festival, others can be bought in a shop when leaving the event.

How It Works

After paying the entry fee, each visitor pays a deposits of 5 francs for a beer glass and then accompanied by the beer guide they have the opportunity to visit each of the stalls and purchase “jetons” to taste an amazing array of great beers. Most beers cost 1 to 2 jetons and a jeton costs one franc.
