Essen, Belgium – Christmas Beer Festival
“O.B.E.R. (Objective Beer tasters Essen Region) organizes its Christmas Beer Festival every year. For two days visitors can taste more than 150 Belgian Christmas and winter beers. To let you judge the different brews at best, we use 15 cl tasting glasses. A glass can be obtained for 3 Euro, but if you return it to us when you leave, you get a full refund. However, lots of glasses are kept as souvenirs. Our beer list is regarded as one of the best in the world, with several scoops and interesting gems combined with world classics. As per last year we’ll probably have more than 150 different bottled beers to taste, and 18 or 20 on draught. Hot served Gluhkriek will of course still be available as well. At last year’s festival about 3000 thirsty Christmas-beer-lovers came to the festival in Essen. And not only from Belgium! We have a very international audience coming from all over the world, counting 32 countries last year! In 2006 we received the touristic charter “Jan Lambin” by ASG for our promotion of the Belgian Christmas beers. Check out our beer list regularly, or join the mailinglist. Just fill in “join Christmas mailing list” on this form, press send, and we’ll keep you posted! A first temporary list will be available online the second half of November.”
