Brussels Beer Festival

Belgium’s rich beer heritage is celebrated in countless cafés in Brussels, which serve a host of beers including kriek and gueuze, and makes this city the perfect host for a truly spectacular beer festival.

Widely regarded as one of the most exciting beer festivals in Europe, the Belgian Beer Weekend celebrates the Belgian and Brussels beer tradition in style. Set against the backdrop of the stunning historic main square - the Grand'Place - it's a celebration of Belgium's national drinks and a chance to try their diverse range of beers including; blond beers, white beers, amber-coloured beers, fruit beers and strong beers.

Throughout the weekend over 35 small, medium and large-sized Belgian breweries, will be serving-up around 350 different beers, making the Belgian Beer Weekend one of the largest beer festival in the country. You can also take advantage of staying in the heart of Belgian beer production and take a visit to the Brussels Beer Project and enjoy a brewery tour. You will be able to tour their urban brewery, discovering the latest techniques and flavours in beer brewing as well as take part in a tasting of some brand new offerings. The city also still has two traditional breweries which are considered to be among the world’s best: the Zenne Brewery and Cantillon, which is part of the Brussels Gueuze Museum.

Entrance to the festival is free, but with numerous visitors expected and a high demand for accommodation, it is recommended that you check hotel rates and book as early as possible.

If you can't make it during the beer festival, why not visit the spectacular Brussels Christmas Market instead?
