Belgiumfest 2010: Meer bier alstublieft!
“More beer please” is what we plan on saying all day on Saturday, January 23, 2010, as Belgiumfest begins in the Seattle neighborhood of Georgetown. Belgium beer styles vary from pale lagers to blondes to lambics, Saisons and Flemish reds. This country knows their beer, as some of beer brewing’s origins date back to the Middle Ages in Belgium. With over 125 breweries in this magnificent country, Belgiumfest 2010 is the perfect kick off to the countdown of Beer Blotter’s trip to Belgium in March.
Belgiumfest will take place at the Engine Room located on Airport Way South. Divided into two sessions, 12-4PM and 6-10PM, this event focuses on local, Washington breweries that feature Belgium style brews.
