We’re doing it again.
This time in March.
The Southeast’s biggest celebration of Belgian Beer & Food.
Coasters Pub in Melbourne, Florida. March 9th, 10th and 11th, 2012.

First we’d like to those that have visited Belgian Beer Fest the previous two years. If you liked the previous events, you will not be disappointed this year. For the uninitiated, let us explain what the deal is:

We’ll have thirty five taps of Belgian Beer and Belgian Food Specials all weekend. It’s a labor of love. We have good relationships with beer importers and distributors, and we collect unique and sometimes very rare kegs of Belgian Beer all year.

Why Belgian beer? It’s some of the highest quality, best tasting and most inventive beer on the planet. The brewing tradition in Belgium is truly impressive. Give or take, there are currently 178 breweries in Belgium. That’s a lot. And that’s in a country the size of West Virginia. Beer is almost a religion in Belgium. Sometimes it’s closely tied with religion, as many abbeys and monasteries brew their own beer. The Belgians are serious about beer, just as the Germans. However, while the Germans are restricted by the Beer Purity Law of 1516, the Belgians are free to experiment. That makes the variety of Belgian beer on par with that of the United States. So take the engineering exactness of Germans, a religious dedication and add to it ingenuity and experimentation and you have the Belgian Beer Scene.

We collect upwards of fifty different Belgian kegs of beer for the event, so as soon as one keg blows it’s replaced; usually with something completely different. That way you’re able to return the next day to a new beer menu with plenty of brews you haven’t tried.

We’ll be posting a list of kegs soon. Check back to see what we’ll be pouring!

Food? We’ve got that covered. In addition to our regular food menu, our capable kitchen will be cooking up some Belgian Favorites. We’ll be steaming mussels in witbier and fresh vegetables. We’ll be serving up Belgian chocolates and cheeses, and cooking Belgian waffles. You won’t leave here hungry. We do ask that you have a safe plan to leave, however.

Many of the Belgian Beers are high in alcohol. Some may be 10% or more. With that in mind, we ask that you plan ahead on finding a safe way to get home. Cabs will be available and hotels are just across the street; some even have free shuttle services.
