Beer on Tour: Luzern

Final stop this time has been beautiful Luzern, lying on it’s lake surrounded by Alps. This is always a nice place to visit as the town is so lovely and the concert hall fantastic.

The normal watering hole is the Rathaus Brauerei, in the old town down on the lakefront. We started our evening here and I enjoyed some of their Weizen which is quite subtle and nicely dry with a decent bit of spicyness. After a short while however, we strayed off the normal course of a beer blog, going to the cocktail bar at the National Hotel.

This is further up the lake in a quieter area, next to the glamorous looking casino, and is very classy. The cocktail menu is impressive and we were given an education in these by our barman, Marc. We tried Mojitos, Pina Colladas, Moscow Mules, Martinis and I finished with a Gin and Tonic after being talked through, and given a snifter of, a number of interesting bottles. Everything tasted fantastic and if you are ever in the area and like your spirits and cocktails you should definitely check it out.
