Conviviality and good mood is written large in the "Brasse"! For over 25 years, the Brasserie 17 with its restaurant and the long bar is the cozy meeting place in Interlaken, where everyone feels comfortable. In addition to many beer specialties, delicious food and trendy drinks, the Brasserie 17 is a super address for great evenings among friends.

Bart and Piet opened Brasserie 17 over 27 years ago in the former Eintracht in Interlaken, a unique restaurant. The two Dutchmen convinced the Oberlanders and the tourists with their open, uncomplicated and always cheerful manner. Just typically Dutch.
With Sophie, the second generation has now taken the helm at the Brasserie. The handover from Bart and Ursula to Sophie was somewhat protracted by Covid and even today Bart is supporting almost daily at the bar.
There is always something to celebrate at Brasserie 17, among friends, as events or just to meet each other.
For example, the Dutch Queen's Day,all in orange, is always celebrated at the end of April. But also music and sports fans do not miss out in Brasserie 17. There is something for everyone from 16 - 90 years and there is always something new.
Brasserie 17 has been a Rugenbräu customer since the very beginning. Rugenbräu beer was already served in the "Brasse" when it opened over 27 years ago.
Sophie has known Rugenbräu since childhood and was introduced to the art of beer tapping at an early age by her mother.
Lager hell and Zwickelbier are available by the glass. The complete Rugenbräu range, including the Mountain Twister, is offered in bottles, andof course the seasonal specialties of the brewer's editions are not to be missed.
"Your whole sales team could be the answer here!" says Sophie. According to her, a great Rugen IPA is still missing from the range.
Sophie's favorites are the Rugenbräu Zwickel and definitely the Alpenperle.
