I came back to work after dinner and after some more work, me and two colleagues decided to go for a beer. One of them hadnât eaten yet and it was kind of late and the kitchen of the place we went to had closed. There was a fast food like place around the corner run by a guy from
The reverse happens too. It was less late, but we still wanted a beer. So we went into the Rheinfelder Bierhalle, a place famed for its Jumbo-Jumbo Cordon Blues (they are huge) and their cheap beer. But none for us. It was dinner time and they wouldnât serve us just beer, which seemed strange for a Bierhalle. The Bierkeller next door however had the same policy: no food, no beer.
The English pub around the corner had no problem with people just ordering beer. I guess thatâs where globalization really helps you; providing Pakistani and Brits that undercut the Swiss traditions when they work against you.
