Anyway, what I found was very different from what I expected. Observe:

Cardinal beer can be found online here. Look around at the Swiss having fun. Beware though, you have to choose between French and German while surfing their site.

Groovy Swiss jamming with the Blues Birds! Wild and crazy guys (and gals).
