Ostend invites beer lovers from near and far to the second North Sea Beer Festival being held over the last weekend in August 2016.
The festival will be held in the splendid Leopoldpark, not far from the famous Casino-Kursaal, right opposite the De Grote Post cultural centre and just a few hundred metres from the sea and the beach.
25 Belgian breweries and beer firms will be showcasing more than 150 Belgian specialty beers. There will be plenty of opportunity to sample some of the country’s better-known beers, and to discover many new brews, including several limited editions, as you explore the marquees dotted around the park.
Alongside this extensive range of beers, gourmets will find plenty to tickle their taste buds too. Several chefs from highly rated Ostend restaurants are keen to introduce you to their best dishes and will be cooking on the festival site.
The picture is completed with a soft drink and coffee corner.
Music is an essential part of any festival, and this easy-going, convivial gathering is no exception, with a full programme of live performances and DJ sets.
Weekend pass – includes three tokens plus a unique tasting glass: €10.00
Additional tokens: €1.80 (exchange for 15cl specialty beers, soft drinks & coffee)
