Lentebock festival

There isn’t a season when we don’t enjoy a great craft beer. That said, there’s something about quenching our thirst with a frosty one under the first sun beams. And the only thing better than quenching our thirst with a craft beer, is being together with your friends and explore different beers. To do that, we recommend to visit beer festival. Even if you have to book a ticket and fly over the pond.

Spring Bock Festival

Utrecht - April 1,2, 3

Love a bit Dutch culture while drinking a beer, this is where you go. With 20 different different breweries, this is the first spring fest of the Netherlands designed to help you discover which beers appeal most to you. The offerings are (unsurprisingly) very Dutch based and you probably walk into the MiniBrew team because it’s our backyard. LINK

Myths Beer Festival

Leuven - April 23, 24

It’s no secret Belgium is one of the greatest beer brewing countries in Europe. The festival is huge with more than 500 beers on tap. The diversity of beer in offer gives you the chance to explore beer based on themes. You can choose to taste rare oak aged beers or even dark beers of 12%. LINK

Tour de Fat

Washington - May 21th (kick off)

As Dutchies, we celebrate the power of the bike and ride the streets. When you can combine this with a beer you never want to leave. It’s worth the trip. This festival has grown into a passage for cycling advocates, creatives and bon vivants alike. You’ll also have the chance to drink some of the fine beers from new Belgium’s Lips Of Faith series, which is always a good thing. Look for other dates around the country on their site. LINK

Carnivale Brettanomyces

Amsterdam – June 23-26

Technically it isn’t spring anymore, but this one you don’t want to miss. This is one the few unprecedented beer festival in Amsterdam that you could have an awesome time. It takes place at different venues around the city and is a celebration of the funky yeast strains and explicit tastes from (Inter)national breweries. You can get samples from Lambics and Flemish Red. Bone dry Pale ales and Leathery stouts. And if that’s not your thing, you will find Gose and Berliner Weisse. LINK
