Belgium in Prague

The good people of Pivo-Pivo carry on with their mission to open minds and palates of český pivaří and the general public.

This time is a festival of Belgian beers. Like the previous ones (the one at Christmas, and last Summer's Wheat beer fest) the event will take place in the classy halls of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Over 70 different beers will be presented, many of which, I'm sure, have rarely, if ever, been seen in Prague. A great opportunity for those who are already familiarised with the now relatively easy to find Trappist, etc. , and fancy exploring what else has made Belgium such a highly regarded beer country.
Once again, the event will be divided in sessions limited to 250 visitors each. The sessions are: Friday 3–5 p.m. and 6–9 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.–1 p.m., 2–5 p.m. and 6–9 p.m.; Sunday 2–5 p.m. and 6–9 p.m.

Tickets cost 150CZK and can be booked here or can be bought at Zlý Časy, Pivovarský Klub or at the hotel.

If the weather continues like this, or not, this festival is a great option for doing something different. You can even take your lady. Fancy place, top-notch food prepared by the hotel's restaurant and I don't think there are many women out there who can resist a proper Belgian fruit beer.

Go, don't miss it!

Na Zdraví!

  2. Hmmm... If I was a rich man I think I would be a very well traveled pisshead. As things are now, I'll have to make do with being just a pisshead.
