It takes place in Sainte-Marie-Cappel! This village in the centre of Flanders becomes the centre of the brewing world for a weekend! It should be noted that the rest of the year, this village is devoted to good food and drink. Restaurants, bakeries, beer bars, spices, waffles, mushrooms, meats, cheeses, vegetables: everything is full of flavour! The cherry on the cake? The village is full of charm and I already loved it before even getting to the FIBA. There’s no doubt about it, it’s a good place to be.
I arrived at the festival. Long hop vines are used to decorate the village, it’s beautiful. Before getting to the brewing centre of the event, I had a look around. I found the local producers that I just told you about. I couldn’t resist a packet of waffles! One thing led to another, and I visited the local associations, treated myself to some collector glasses, and quenched my thirst for curiosity by helping a brewing amateur. A warm atmosphere is in the air: like a summer fête where everyone is happy to get involved.
