Centrally located in the pedestrian shopping street Steinenvorstadt just a couple of minutes from the Barfüsserplatz. Classic bar-like atmosphere with nice outdoor seating by wooden tables. Tasty house beers on tap from Kitchen Brew and a well-selected bottled menu of about 20 beers. Service by the bar. The service was just excellent, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The barmaid had obviously passion for beer and was eager to tell us about the house beers and hear our opinion of them. She even gave me free bottled beers when I left. Just amazing and great. Of all the bars I have rated so far this is the second one that gets full score on service, the first being Open Baladin in Roma (visited with Kjetil and Kjell, 28.07.2014).

One of the best options in Basel for good beer. Nice atmosphere downtown and always a few interesting choices in bottle or draft. Not the best selection though. The addition of Kitchen Brew definitely helps!

Centrally located, this imbibe bar that also serves cocktails, wines and hot drinks is the best place in Basel for Craft beer from the likes of Brewdog and Sierra Nevada as well as innovative brews from the Italian cantons of Switzerland. Worth visiting for this particular reason. Self service, knowledgeable staff.
