Belgium Beer Week kicks off this August
Belgium Beer Week 2021, from 23-29 August, is a showcase of Belgian bars, brewers, beer experts and the fun one can have around beer culture and the people who are passionate about their craft.
Participants host food pairings, games, challenges, blind tastings, bottle shares, tap takeovers and other events they can come up with to bring people together for the week.
Ahmed ElAmin, Dieter Proost and Bas Boiy, the organisers of Belgium Beer Week, said the event celebrates Belgian beer culture and the comeback of the fantastic beer scene throughout the country.
“This year’s edition follows on from the hugely successful 2020 edition, which involved 55 plus beer events at 30 venues in Antwerp and Brussels,” ElAmin said. “The innovative events brought many people out to enjoy old haunts and discover new places. For the 2021 edition, we are going bigger and even better by expanding to more places in Belgium, including Leuven, Ghent, Liege, Namur and other places in Belgium.”
Belgium Beer Week is supported by Beer Idiots vzw., a non-profit that publishes news and information on beer culture (www.idiots.beer). All the money collected from participants for Belgian Beer Week is spent to promote their events and attract people to their venues.
