There are innovative brewers producing local speciality beers throughout Switzerland – but especially in Basel. Alongside Ueli beer, Unser beer is the city's best-known. At the small brewery, you can try your hand at making your own beer, learning the tricks of the master brewer. Later, you can collect your very own Unser beer in a small barrel, to enjoy at home.
