So I'd been to the left field super-cool Alvinne Craft Beer festival. The next day it was off to the more traditional festival in St Niklaas organised by Belgium's beer lovers' consumer organisation Zythos.
|The best part of Belgian beer festivals. Tombola with beer prizes.|
|No that isn't a cigarette advert.|
|Kris the mad brewer from De Dolle with his new beer which translates as 'Fresh Fish'. I'm not sure it will catch on.|
It's still a good day out though with blondes, brunes, triples, ambrees, stouts, gueuzes and krieks from all over Belgium. if you look closely you may even find an IPA or two. There's the usual mix of Flemings, Walloons and beery types from all over the world enjoying beers from one of the world's foremost brewing nations.
