I was in Geneva on one of the first beautiful summer days. This made this place very enjoyable since we could sit outside on the cobblestone street in front of the bar. The inside of the bar is small but very nice [lots of wood, TV's, etc.].

They were serving 4 brews: La Blonde, L'ambree, La blanche and la speciale maison. They were out of the special on the day I asked [I went twice]. While the blonde seemed pretty ordinary, the L'ambree was quite nice and the blanche was exceptional. Of course, the blanche matched nicely with the hot, outdoor cafe mood.

Beer could be ordered in 4 sizes: 0.25litre, 0.50litre and two towers of 3 & 5 litre. The beers were served at a nice temperature.

The menu is simple: small pizza like things. Nothing special, but certainly adequate.

The only downside was the service. Of course, they probably weren't ready for a nice summer day which doubled the quantity of people they could have. When we found a waitress, they were very nice.

I definitely recommend this place if you are in Geneva and need a nice brew.

Stopped in here a few times from March to May. As the weather warms up, there is a large seating area outside, very nice on warm spring nights for sure. Located right in the center of the shopping district, next to the old town. Probably the best location i could think of actually. Prices were in line with typical expensive Geneva prices, beers ranged from .25l to 1l sizes from 4.50CHF to 17CHF give or take. They have 3 beers on tap always, might have a seasonal here and there also but i don't remember. The standard beers were the blond, blanche, and ambree (amber). These are all good, nothing overwhelming, but my favorite was actually the blond as it seemed to be unfiltered and reminded me of some of the better blanche or wit styled beers i have had here. Aside from drinks, you can expect the typical European service with a distinct lack thereof compared to US as they do not expect or work for tips, though in this area sometimes tips are given from tourists. There is a british/italian influenced menu that ranges from chips, to lasagna and daily specials incorporating some swiss dishes. Nothing special with the food or the beer, but the atmosphere is fantastic especially if you can get a table outside on a nice night. Really worth a stop in for a bite to eat and a beer to break a day up while seeing Geneva. The inside is your typical brewery restaurant styling with wood tables, nice bar area and big brass brewing kettles scattered about the restaurant. Overall this is a good place to stop into for sure but certainly not a beer connoisseurs place to go if that is your only concern

I visited the quant Swiss brewpub while visiting Geneva, Switzerland around New Years. The location of this place is in the heart of Geneva's city centre which is perfect. Very easy to get too and ample signs so you know where it is as.

We sat at the bar which had approximately 10-12 seats. Great view of the copper brewing kettles while enjoying the brews. The selection here is dismal - they only serve the beers brewed in-house which I am okay with, but I always like a little variety. The service was friendly and leisurely, but that's how the Swiss roll - all good IMO. The bartender spoke multiple languages which was help as my French is less than stellar.

We did not sample the food, but it looked and smelled quite tasty. It is quite expensive - like everything in Switzerland - but it is definitely worth a visit if you are in town.
