Gifthutli - first pub to serve beer.
120 years ago, pubs served wine only. The beer trade was firmly in the hands of house breweries and their restaurants. So when Innocenz Weiss dared to be the first to serve beer in his pub 'zum Ritter St. Georg', he soon became the town's main talk. Even the local paper "Basler Nachrichten" decided to comment on it with an article that claimed "... to drink beer elsewhere than at the brewery is like drinking poison (Gift)" Proud to serve beer now, Innocenz Weiss took it not only with humor but also re-named his pub to Gifthüttli.
