Brauerei Fischerstube – Craft-Brewing in the Heart of Basel
Anyone who drinks Ueli Beer immediately realizes that this beer has to be drunk with the heart too. This is not simply because it has been very lovingly brewed. Being duty-bound to genuine craft brewing, we use whole hop cones, so-called fresh hops, and let the young beer ferment in open vats. Ueli Beers are not heated, the naturally cloudy beers are not filtered. This helps retain valuable flavor carriers and minerals.
Although the master brewer only works with hops, malt, water and yeast, he repeatedly manages to come up with new, surprising and above all tasty types of beer. This calls for not only the finest ingredients and great skill but also a joy of trying out something new.
The discerning use of unprocessed whole hop cones and the wide range of Ueli Beers are proof that the master brewer is not easily satisfied: apart from the regular types of beer that are always available, the microbrewery also offers changing and seasonal specialty beers. For example the bock beer that is brewed every year to a new recipe for the traditional Kleinbasel festival ‘Vogel Gryff’, or the Mac Ueli Ale, which is only available in summer. In the pre-Christmas period, the brewery surprises beer lovers with a specially created ‘Festbier’ (festive beer). The range is rounded off in winter by the ‘Winterbogg’.
