Belgian beer, food and music. Welcome to the best weekend!

Belgium is probably the best kept secret in Europe! Although it may be one of the smaller countries of Europe, it counts an impressive 200 breweries and 1,500 different beers. Add to this the fact that the UNESCO recognised the Belgian beer culture as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016, and you can understand that Belgium is the world's undisputed beer paradise! The ‘Belgian Beer Weekend’ is the finest occasion to explore the Belgian beer culture and traditionally takes place the first weekend of September at the world renowned ‘Grand Place’ in Brussels. The Belgian Beer Weekend made its debut in Japan in 2010 and will travel in 2017 to Nagoya, Yokohama, Osaka, Kanazawa, Sapporo, Sendai, Kobe and Tokyo. Join us for one of the best weekends with great Belgian beers, food and live music!

The Belgians love their fries very much! They take fries extremely serious and have about 5,000 fries stands (or "fritkot") all over the country. We reproduce the "fritkot" at Belgian Beer Weekend to bring you the best fries you have ever tasted, the Belgian way! Operated by Belgian Brasserie Court.
