Fischerstube Brewery

Brewmaster J├╝rgen Pinke in a short interview

What lies behind the doors of the Fischerstube brewery?

The Fischerstube brewery is the oldest brewery in Basel. It was founded in 1974 as a reaction to the beer cartel at the time and since then has been impressing customers with a variety of Ueli beers. What once began as a pioneering act by a liberal spirit and citizen of Kleinbasel is now the brewing site of Basel's most popular beer.

Why is regionality important to you?

It guarantees short transport routes. Thanks to regionality, Ueli beers are always delivered to customers fresh and in an eco-friendly way. This is important because many Ueli beers are fresh products. They are neither filtered nor flash-pasteurised.

Where is your favourite place in (Klein)Basel?

A place in one of the two brewery restaurants, be it in the beer garden or in the dining room where guests from near and far meet.
