I do however invite you over, if that is a possibility. If not, its prpbably better to try and meet up withsome geeks and do your own festival aka pubcrawl. Better beers, less stress ??


Thanks for the invite. There are still plenty of bars in Brussels I’ve not been to and ones I want to go to again to keep me busy for the weekend.
Especially as there is an Italian festival at MLF, that will take priority.

The open door days will take place at their new location in Lot, short train ride from Brussels. I might get a ride but otherwise just train. Check their site for new directions.

From the festival in the Grand Place.
Well I ended up with 17 rates and 4 new beers for me from Boon including 3 of the new VAT releases.
Went Sunday lunchtime. 10 minute queue for tokens, but then no queues at stands or for a beer.
And I left plenty of rates on some of the stands.
A little expensive. but I really enjoyed it.

Good to see you Eugene. Thanks for the seat at MLF and the chat about Prince, North Korea, Tim Burton, Batman, Trump and Brexit. Best conversation I had all weekend.
