No proposals for RBESG? Nobody willing to host/organize this event?

I’ll post a message in the local forums. Normally I would be willing to (co-)organise a Dutch/Belgian gathering but live in wine country now.

So here’s a proposal for the RBESG 2013: Netherlands!

Martinus and I asked around and there are enough Dutch Rateberians who want to help and make this a nice, beer-loaded weekend. And maybe some Belgium help as well. We suggest the weekend of June 28-29-30. Why? Because it’s in between some big festivals in May and the start of summer holiday. And there’s a nice small beerfestival in Tilburg on that sunday.
Just a quick scan of some ideas: a pubcrawl in Amsterdam, visiting some new places and a showcase of new dutch breweries like Butchers Tears, Rooie Dop, Oersoep, etc. A bus-tripp to the Dutch/Belgian border area, including visits to Emelisse, Dochter van de Korenaar, Scheldebrouwerij, etc. A grand tasting with bbq. A visit with tasting to the abbey of Koningshoeve (La Trappe) and visiting Tilburg including the small beerfestival.
These are just rough ideas, no breweries have been contacted yet.

So, let’s hear what you think about it. Shall we take this to a next level?

Cheers, Joris & Martinus

I just wish the Croatian brewing scene didn’t stagnate so much. Zagreb would be fun enough to do, but the options are still too damn limited, not that interesting and would require long bus trips.

Maybe it’ll get better once we join the EU - it would be easier to organize a day trip to, say, Ljubljana or something, which would help things.

Sounds great Joris! Let me know if I can help (e.g. for planning Amsterdam).

Joris & Martinus - that plan looks like it’s brewed with all the right beer ingredients.

I am a little surprised to not see ’t Ij mentioned - we’ve never been there (we’ve only had one beery trip to Amsterdam, but we loved it).

This sounds awesome. I think you can take this to next level. I hope others will also agree. If you need some help just BMail me.
