The Belgian beer fest hosted over 100 Belgian (imported) and Belgian style (domestic) beers. This was probably the largest collection of Belgian beers together at one time anywhere in the world.

What to drink first?


The admission included tickets for lunch. One option was a sample of imported cheese. With the right beer in hand these cheeses were great!

In addition to the cheese, sausage and steak sandwiches were available. It's always a good idea to have something to eat when sampling so many beers. The food helps absorb alcohol and keeps you sober.

There were so many great beers to try at the Belgian Beer Fest. Many of these beers we'll probably never be able to find in a store. This was a great opportunity to sample beers we could not normally try and we're looking forward to next year's event.
