Located in the Altstadt Kleinbasel on the other side of the Mittlere bridge, second street to the bank of the Rhine River. The place gives a pub-restaurant impression, relatively large with a terrace at the rear, first floor, where we sat down. Four of their beers were available at the time served in different sizes. The food, we had chicken-curry and risotto, was quite alright, but not great in any way. The same goes for the beers as well. Service was polite, but rather inattentive. Some more of their Ueli beers can be bought in bottles. Half-way pleasing (visited with Kjell, Kjetil, Liv and Eva 27.07.2014).

Very expensive since it is in Switzerland. Server was disinterested and there were only about 10 people there with one server. The beer quality is decent, but not worth the price or a special visit. Head there if you are in Basel already though. Wooden tables with various beer memorabilia on the walls.

Small BrewPub & restaurant close to the Rhein. 4 of their own beers on tap which were decent & 4 different bottled beers. Quiet on a Saturday afternoon. Satisfactory service, fantastic food but like everywhere in Switzerland very expensive. Not good enough to go to Basel for but worth a visit if you are there already.

Lively place with beautiful traditional decoration and traditional dishes. Serves traditional German style beers by the brewery. Lively atmosphere, crowded and fun. Worth visiting in Basel.

(Visited in 11/2011): Fischerstube is located on Rheingasse between the Wettsteinbrücke and Mittlere Brücke, about a block away from the Rhein.
The interior is narrow with a small bar on the left side and table seating on the right. There is an eclectic collection of artwork and stamped metal. Brewing equipment is visible in the rear.
Fischerstube has 4 of their beers on tap, under the Ueli brand and include a Hefe, Dunkel and a couple Helles style. It appeared there was a bottled beer available as well. All of the beers are decent.
Service on our visit was good. We showed up literally at opening time and as was the case with most of our visits the staff was able to navigate the language barrier and get us beer, and were friendly.
We did not try any food on our visit.
Overall this is a nice spot in a quaint neighborhood and was well worth the walk from where our river cruise docked.

In Kleinbasel, on the "German" side of the Rhein. Nice restaurant and pub, good food at decent prices. You can get the beers on a tasting tablet to try. They are all good quality. The brewery is in the back and can be seen through a large window. Special editions are bottled and will be brewed at Brauerei Losser, just over the border in Germany.

Visitet this place in november 2011. This is what I will call a real “Brauhause“ with wooden tables and beches. Traditional german style food and beers. The brewing plant is in the basement. We did eart there local smokde wurth with sauerkraut .. very tasty. They serve samples of the beers on tap. Friendly staff.

Probably the most important place to go in Basel, since it is the only brewpub. 4 beers on tap and a seasonal bottled. Draft beer can be had in 10 cl. glasses. Very traditional decoration with huge light wooden tables sorounded with wooden benches and chairs on a stone floor. Service very helpful - even giving us advice where to go for beer elsewhere in town. We weren’t very hungry, so we just had a weisswurst, which was nice.
