We brew where you drink
Volta Bräu is brewed using traditional methods. The beer is never filtered, pasteurised or treated with preservatives, meaning none of the flavour gets lost. Wherever possible, we source our ingredients from the surrounding region and use them sustainably to minimise waste.
Keen to find out how we make Volta Bräu? Our master brewer Gabriele will show you how in a half-hour tour through the brewery. Listen to an explanation of the brewing process, learn more about the various ingredients and ask Gabriele all your burning questions. The tour costs CHF 18 and includes a glass of beer, platters with antipasti and tasting of a young beer from the fermentation room. Appointments can be made for groups larger than 12 from Monday to Saturday, 5 to 8 pm.
We always serve high-quality regional products, thanks to our partnerships with various local businesses. For instance, our bread is made at the Brandl Bakery just around the corner, and our meat is provided by the Macelleria Scalino and Jenzer butcher’s shops, which are also located in Basel.
