The intent of this blog is to inform, educate, and entertain those who enjoy the brews of the greatest beer country, Belgium. I will also talk about Belgian-inspired brews and breweries, beer bars, beer events, and beer stores in the U.S.A. and elsewhere.

Better get there early!)
One of America's Premier Belgian beer events begins
tomorrow, and it's right here in my hometown of
The 8th Annual edition of Max's Belgian Beer Festival
will feature over 200 Belgian beers on draft and over
275 in bottles over the course of the weekend, running
Max's 100 taps will rotate. As one keg kicks, Casey Hard
and crew replace with another.
As last year, I will have a slideshow running on Max's
big-screen TV (downstairs) showing images from about
70 Belgian breweries represented at the fest.
It will be about 1,100 slides total and run time will be
about 90 minutes from start to finish. It will run on a
loop all weekend beginning tomorrow around noon.
The rare ones I am looking forward to include Tilquin
