Imagine yourself sitting in a tap room at East Burnside Street in Portland. You are enjoying a juicy West Coast IPA or dining at a typical Nordic style restaurant in the Meat District in Copenhagen. Imagine eating a beautifully balanced, colorful, salty, sour, fruity, comforting and playful Pasta Puttanesca. Fresh strawberries from Basel’s countryside is definitely what you crave afterwards, while listening to “Home is wherever I’m with you” in the background. Your bag is placed right next to you on the comfy bench sofa. – Yup, that is you at Matt & Elly! On one of the 100 seats at the kitchen and garden or the 30 seats at the bar and brewery, you are the star! In a typical Swiss manner, we won’t ever ask you for an autograph, instead we treat you like everyone else; charming with a smile.

Nice craft beer.

We, Jarin Huber and Denise Furter, met in 2010 in Basel while working for the boutique gastronomy group, Krafft. Jarin is a trained chef and well experienced restaurant manager; Denise a hotel manager, Beer Sommelière and charming hostess. We met quite a while ago and were an immediate match; first at work as colleagues and later on as a couple. While travelling the world every now and then we came to the idea of Matt & Elly in 2017. Martin, our former chef and Max, our former brewer, joined our team shortly after. In these two ‘old colleagues’ we found the perfect people to launch the restaurant and brewery with bar together. They have both continued their journeys and are off to new adventures.

Craft Bier Basel

Piotr Karpinski has taken over the co-leadership of the kitchen together with Jarin since February 2022. The passionate chef has previously worked as a baker for Tanja Grandits at Restaurant Stucki, opened the MIRAI Ramenclub as a chef and Copenhagen was just one of the many destinations on his professional career. Sascha Rijkeboer wows you since December 2021 as co-leader front of house together with Denise and learns to brew beer from Jarin. Sascha does public relations as a non-binary trans person in different contexts and tours with a queer spoken word program in German-speaking Switzerland. Together with our diverse crew, the Brewery & Kitchen gives you the unique freedom you know from travelling, the feeling of being relaxed and, if you feel like it, the willingness to meet interesting, creative people like yourself while eating, drinking and telling each other your stories.
