The Cheese Club  (previously ), a mailorder purveyor of fine British and other artisanal cheeses, is teaming up with Spiffing Ales , a microbrewery specializing in British style ales, to open a Best Of British store in Thalwil, ZH. The official opening date is November 1, but they’ll be open tomorrow (Thursday Oct. 29) and Friday from 15:00 - 19:00 for a ‘practice run’. On November 1st they’ll have their grand opening from 10:00 - 19:00, and thereafter they’ll be open to the public on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and early evenings (the rest of the time they’ll be doing wholesale; consult their web sites for more info when they’re posted).
Besides cheese and beer, other British delicacies like back bacon and sausage, handmade pies, tea and biscuits, Christmas puddings and more are promised.
