    Figured instead of clogging up the Lambic Discussion this deserved its own thread.
    Who is in? Which events?

    27 April - Night of the Great Thirst
    28-29 April - Zythos
    1 May - Quintessence
    5-6 May - Tilquin English Beer Festival


    Cheers

    If people really want to have shirts I can make it happen. Additional bonus of a warm fuzzy feeling/knowledge that it is providing jobs for homeless and at-risk youth, via New Avenues INK.

Would love to meet up and share some lambic with everyone. My first time to belgium, my wife who is also coming went 11 years ago. Very excite!

    In for Quintessence, others depend on flight plan. Definitely making a trip to Streekbieren in Izegem one of the days.

    Didn't get a ticket sadly, but I'd still love to buy a shirt when they're available.

    I'm not familiar with Streekbieren, but I recently found out about a place called Kroegske, which is also in Izegem. Apparently the owner has a great vintage lambic menu for very fair prices. Has anyone heard of the place?

    Zythos is amazing! Most Belgian brewers are present , though not so many lambic brewers.

    Zythos is pretty atypical tho. Lots of bachelor parties and fraternities getting shitfaced which is not something you're going to see at de Nacht for example.
    I've been like 3 or 4 times and I loved it when I was 19. Not as much anymore, haven't been in years

    English Beer fest is a must in my book if you are in town. Super chill, really well run, not too crowded. Had my kid with me one year and it was fine for him. All the best English breweries are there pouring a great range of beers. Been every year and won't miss this one either.

    In at 10:00 for Quintessence, thumbs up on a shirt.
