Re: Beer festivals to take into account

YES, I full concur about Hasselt, it is a super beer festival, as was said they provide a 'BeerTaxi' which can be booked to collect from nearly anywhere within a 25km radius. The cost last time was only a few Euros - far below taxi prices. All you have to do is call them up shortly before you want transport. They always have around 140 beers on, and although not many speak English, the method of ordering beer is non-lingual, they have order forms, which you fill in, you then wave the provided wooden beerglass on a stick to attract a waiter, and hey presto, you've ordered your beer !

The head honcho of DeLimbugse Bierfrienden Rony Langenaeken pops up all over the place, we saw him at Essen in December, and to no suprise at the Zythos doo too.

Another thing about the Hasselt festival, when you arrive you get a lottery ticket, which you fill in and post into the box at the front. Once an hour they do a draw from the box - 5 prizes I think, from a set of beer glasses to a full orange crate of various beers - around 40 odd bottles, normally pairs of the same, but 20 different beers for nothing, or next to nothing (you can buy additional tickets) is excellent, and get this, they don't remove any of the raffle tickets from the box, so the earlier you get there the more chances you have.
