Beer festivals to take into account

Posted by Jimbo on 03/23/2004 04:10:55 AM

It sounds as if you have already decided on October, but it may be worthwhile pointing out that two of the best beer festivals in Flanders happen in September and November:

. Geel on 18-19 Sept;

. Hasselt on 12-14 Nov;

Close enough to October, right ;o)?

Besides, they are easy to get to by train; the Hasselt festival even offering a shuttle service!

The Hasselt festival really is not to be missed - and I'm sure there's plenty of Babblers who can wax lyrical on about it judging by the busloads that were there last year - while Geel always offers a great selection of vintage beers: around 10 out of a beerlist in the range of 120-140 or so, but "Westmalle Tripel '78" for EUR 2,50 should give you an idea of just how special we're talking here :D.

In October, there is the Heikantse Bierfeesten festival in Berlaar, but I've not been there myself so I can't really say much about that one.

Jimbo.
