Namur: beer capital

  • Namur: beer capital
  • Festival
From Friday 05 to Saturday 06 January 2018.

Namur becomes the beer capital for a wonderful weekend per season, bringing all beer lovers to the county seat of the Walloon Region for a delightful experience.

Local brewers and producers come and present their creations, each weekend following a specific theme.

Spring: saison beers

Spring is the best time to enjoy this typically Belgian beer, which used to be brewed at the beginning of winter for workers to enjoy when the field work would start again. Definitely the best place to celebrate spring - so join the event in March and April on Place Rijckmans in Salzinnes!

Summer: terroir beers

In Summer, Namur hosts 30 local brewers and terroir gourmet artisans: a wonderful opportunity to try their specialty and have a chat with them. The event takes place in July on the esplanade of the citadel.

Autumn: Stout Sûre Meuse

The Stout Sûre Meuse is the autumn guest: dark, slightly acidic but delicious beers. You will be amazed by the range of flavours. The event takes place at the brasserie de l'Echasse, in October.

Winter: spicy beers

Perfect to celebrate the beginning of the year. There will be 40 or so beers to try in the prestigious Floreffe abbey.

Events no beer lover would miss!


From Friday 05 to Saturday 06 January 2018.
