The “ZAPF! Craft Beer Festival Bern” will bring together beer lovers and beer makers at the “Warmbächli-Brache” festival grounds. Brewers from the city and region of Bern will be offering samples of their concoctions, explaining the background of their handiwork and drawing beer like there’s no tomorrow.
In addition to the numerous types of beer on tap, the food stands will also serve up culinary highlights, turning the event on the festival grounds in Bern’s Holligen district into a satisfyingly complete open-air experience for all visitors.
Started in 2017 by five beer-loving friends, the festival aims to introduce hops fans to top-quality yet still unknown beers from the region. Under an open sky and with a balmy summer breeze, ZAPF! fulfills all your beery dreams and promotes the regional art of brewing.
A helpful tip: As part of an eco-friendly effort, all of the beer will be served in the official ZAPF! festival glasses. A glass is included with admission (don’t lose your token!). Only cash is accepted at the food stands.
Tickets can be purchased on site or in advance from the website. A standard ticket costs 10 francs and can only be purchased in advance. With the purchase of a “Beer Friend” ticket for 15 francs, visitors can help to cover the costs of hosting this event. Both tickets have the same value in all other regards.
