WEEKEND OF THE UNION OF BELGIAN BREWERS

The Union of belgian brewers, managed by Sven GATZ made of the 14th Belgian Beer Weekend a great success.bièresbOn the first day, the belgian brewers gathered for yearly colorful and beautiful a ceremony at the cathedral St Michel & Gudule under the presidency of RP Erik De Sutter, Abbot of the Abbey of Grimbergen (where a beer is also made). At the town hall, the Mayor of Brussels Freddy Thielemans received the brewers as its guests and some international beer market players entered into the belgian beer knighthood.

But the public part of the happening was far the most intresting for all beer connoisseurs and beer lovers. More than 50 breweries presented 350 beers to all visitors, belgian but also from all over the world. A unique event in the picturesque Grand Place of Brussels. As the last years, thousands and thousands beer fans tasted one of the typical belgian products and enjoyed it a lot.

Besides the grand Place, the belgian brewers opened for the first time the building of the Brussels stock exchange for beer tasting and food pairing. A beer street was opened at the back of the Brussels sotck exchange to taste draught beer.

A great succes anyway !
