Belgium Beer Week 2022 kicks off 22-28 August

Meeting new and old friends and taking in the best of beer culture is on tap during Belgium Beer Week, which is held across Belgium and the world from 22 to 28 August.

Visitors can drink in the atmosphere as bars, brewers, beer shops, beer experts and guides offer 150+ innovative events during the week, including food pairings, tap and bar takeovers, collabs, blind tastings, bottle shares, brunches, beer glass blowing and other events.

Visitors can explore and discover the old and the new, whether it is the latest craft bar or a traditional brown bar. The third edition takes place at over 100 participating bars, breweries and other venues in Antwerp, Brussels, Leuven, Bruges, Ghent, Mechelen, Liège and Namur. This year Belgium Beer Week is going international – with participants in the UK, Poland, France and elsewhere.

For its third edition, Belgium Beer Week also features beer museums across the country as part of the cultural experience. Beer experts and guides will also provide talks on Belgium’s beer history and the emerging field of beer archaeology, which traces the roots of beer making.

This year we have partnered with BxlBeerFest, which ends Belgium Beer Week on 27-28 August with a showcase of 60 Belgian and international brewers. Brewers will be teaming up with Belgium Beer Week participants to offer tap takeovers and other fun events.

Dieter Proost, Bas Boiy and Ahmed ElAmin, the organisers of Belgium Beer Week, said this third edition highlights the rich history and culture of beer in Belgium.

“It’s always a wonderful surprise to see the types of innovative events that  participants deliver for Belgium Beer Week,” said ElAmin. “For the 2022 edition, we are going bigger and even better by expanding to more places in Belgium and across the world.”

He added: “Belgium beer culture is recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity. This year we look forward to providing an amazing series of events showcasing this incredibly rich culture and making it more tangible for visitors.”

How it works: Belgium Beer Week is supported by Beer Idiots vzw., a non-profit that publishes news and information on beer culture ( There are no tickets for Belgium Beer Week although participants may charge a fee for some events, such as food and beer pairings. Belgium Beer Week collects a €20 registration fee from participants, which is spent to promote their events and attract people to their venues.
