    As to not clutter up any other thread I figured i'd start one for this years OBD (and discussion of any future ones should the thread become successful).

    Information for 2017 OBD (with more to come, as always ;)) :

    Open Bier Dagen: opening op vrijdag 1 september om 20u.
    Zaterdag, zondag en maandag van 10.00u tot 17.00u.
    Tijdens de Open Bier Dagen wordt een selectie van (lambik)bieren aangeboden - de bieren uit de caveaus zijn dan niet te degusteren. Op woensdag 30 en donderdag 31 augustus en vrijdag 1 september van 10u tot 17u is de lambik-O-droom gewoon open en zijn alle bieren beschikbaar (zie www.3fonteinen.be/menu).
    ----------
    Open Beer Days: Grand Opening 1st of September 2017 at 8PM.
    Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10AM to 5PM. During the Open Beer Days, a selection of (lambic) beers is available - the cellar beers are not available at that moment (www.3fonteinen.be/menu), but they are available on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st of August and the 1st of September from 10AM to 5PM, when the lambik-O-droom is open as always.



    Will anyone else be there? I'll be there either Friday evening or Saturday morning (or both...) and certainly the day before to try the vintage bottles not available during OBD.

    No word of what is to be released to-go this year, though Armand posted some OG, A&G, A&G mag's, Hommage, and Tuverbol b2 on instagram a few weeks ago. Im sure we will be updated the day before, or day of the event.

    Come say hi if you see a very short and flamboyant looking American with a very tall and stoic looking Finn drinking lambic like a bunch of goons :D

    I'll be there Friday, but leaving late afternoon or early evening. Would love to split some bottles to get to try more.

    OBD wont start until Friday night, so if youre only going for afternoon you wont be able to try the OBD line-up it seems. Just a heads up.

    Sidenote: anyone familiar with how late the train from Lot to Brussels runs? Definitely want to go friday but am bound by the train schedule.

    I'm confused, I thought it reads that they're available 10 am to 5 pm?

    Alright y'all, tomorrow starts the fun!
    I'll be there during normal hours and will return at 8 after a dinner in town. I'll be wearing a Teklife sweater and have a nose ring. Come say hi if you're around! More than happy to split bottles as I will be leaving around 10 to catch the last train back to Brussels.

    Wish I could join in, but stuck here in Sweden. Please double check the time at over at belgianrail.be so I didn't get the tables wrong or something (I've only taken that train once and that was during daytime). I don't wanna be responsible for a lost american with a nose ring out in Pajottenland. ;)

    There's always Uber, and bound to be lots of people heading back late too.

    There's also a bus which goes to Brussels Midi station, in cause you lose the last train.

    The experimental lambic I referenced earlier is Honey Faro. Also available in house are bottles of A&G, gueuze, and Kriek.

    Great time tonight, despite the long lines. Will be back on Sunday for bottle scraps and to finish off the absurd amount of drink tokens I have left!
