Berlin Beer Week

Hello beer festival lovers!

Important News:
Festival² is now officially a one-day event, taking place on Saturday, July 27th!

Berlin Beer Week is a mere two months away now, and we can definitely feel the excitement mounting. Some great events have already been announced, and we’re smack in the middle of pulling together the first ever Conference of Craft Beer Festival Organizers alongside Berlin Beer Week and the Closing Event, Festival² at Haubentaucher Berlin.

It is the Festival² we’d like to address now, as there is an important change of plans:

Since we started planning our new grand closing, we’ve been slightly uneasy about it being a two-day event. It meant blocking another Friday (in addition to the one we’re already blocking for the Berlin Brews Cruise) of regular Berlin Beer Week events. This means we’re funneling a lot of weekend events into the first Saturday of Berlin Beer Week (July 20th).

The event submissions and ticket sales have confirmed our suspicions, so we decided to take the appropriate step and cancel Friday, July 26th, for Festival², opening it up to regular BBW events. Buyers of Friday & Two-Day tickets have already been notified and for those of you who haven’t bought a ticket yet, get yours now while they last!

In return we are not only extending the hours of the festival, now starting at 13.30 instead of 15.00 hours (12.00 for holders of the beergeek ticket), but we are also adding a few more beers (110) and ciders (10+) to the line up. More about that and the program, such as comedy shows, film screenings etc. will follow soon. Stay tuned!

Billie's Craft Beer Fest

No Crap Just Craft

There are a lot of dogs in the craft beer industry. Flying Dog Brewery, BrewDog, Dogfish Head (okay, that’s a shark). However, Billie, a French Bulldog from Antwerp, must be the only dog who’s chosen a career as a beer festival organizer. Understandably so, we know it’s a dog’s life.

Puns aside, Billie has managed to build up quite a reputation in a very short time, as 2019 will only be the 3rd edition of Billie’s Craft Beer Fest. He’s supported by 7 beer lovers, hobby brewers, HopisHop.net and Billie's Bier Kafétaria. Together, they present 400+ beers from 50 breweries over the two days of the festival. Through in the Sheldt riverside, some fun & games, great food and music, a barber and a tattoo artist, and you’ve got yourself a festival that is one of a kind in Belgium.
For the love of craft, get your butts over there!

Venue:

Waagnatie Expo & Events
Rijnkaai 150, 2000 Antwerp, Belgium

Dates & Times:

November 29. & 30, 2019, 3 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Berlin Beer Week

All In Beer Fest

Scandinavians have taken to craft beer like few other regions on the globe. Our next partner for Berlin Beer Week’s new closing event FESTIVAL² - The Festival of Festivals comes from Sweden, and they have some truly delicious beer in tow by Dugges Bryggeri, Stigbergets Bryggeri, O/O Brewing and a few collaborations of ALL IN BREWING with Poppels Bryggeri, Omnipollo, J. Wakefield Brewing and Beerbliotek Brewery. Much to get excited about!

Hailing from the west coast of Sweden, gipsy brewery All In Brewing was started in 2012 by a number of people of different backgrounds in the beer world. Lead by beer maestro Pelle Frost, All In Brewing has been brewing beers with friends all around the globe. In an effort to bring all of our brewing friends to Sweden and to showcase their amazing beers to the Swedish beer fans, All In Brewing started their own beer festival - All In Beer Fest - six years ago in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Even though not the capital of Sweden, Gothenburg has definitely become the beer hub of the country, with a sense of companionship both between breweries, bars and beer fans.

Venue:

Quality Hotel 11 & Eriksbergshallen
Maskingatan 11, 417 64 Gothenburg
Sweden

Dates & Times:

Berlin Beer Week

Eurhop Roma Beer Festival

The Italien beer scene is one of the most spectacular ones worldwide. EurHop is the platform for this spectacle for the senses, and 15.000 visitors lend credibility to this claim. Having the best beers from Italy will be a huge honor for our FESTIVAL² - The Festival of Festivals. The organizers haven't yet decided which breweries to bring, but it will be all Italian and, with a nod to the colleagues at Arrogant Sour Festival, no sours.

Since 2013, EurHop has been celebrating Italian brewing art to the magnificent backdrop of the Salone delle Fontane, located right next to the Parco del Turismo. The event is a trade show and a festival at the same time, finding the sweet spot between entertainment, information, media attention and networking thanks to Publigiovane Eventi.
The famous Roman bar MA CHE SIETE VENUTI A FA' and its owner Manuele Colonna are in charge of the beer selection, and they will spoil you with highlights. THE beer event in Rome.

INDY MAN BEER CON

The Independent Manchester Beer Convention, or just Indy Man, is one of the most important beer festivals on the British Isles. We are appropriately psyched to have them with us at Festival². The breweries they will represent aren’t yet fully determined, but just take a look at the shortlist. I think we can work with that, don’t you?

Squawk Brewing Co (Manchester heroes)

The honorable halls of the Victoria Baths, a historic bathing house from Edwardian times, hosts the Indy Man Beer Con. That means four days of full beer glasses in empty pools. And it’s not just any beer, but world-famous breweries from England and everywhere else. International top chefs do food pairings, there are secret tastings and pop-up presentations throughout the five halls of the complex, and all is united under the banner of a multisensory, hop-forward, headlong extravaganza.
