Update: Sep 26, 2014
A Belgian Beer Festival is expected to be held in Viet Nam, for the first time, at 6pm on October 3 at the American Club, 21 Hai Ba Trung Street, Ha Noi.

The festival will offer visitors a chance to taste 30 different Belgian draught beers, discover the brewing process, learn more about Belgian culture, enjoy Jazz performances, and attend a wide range of other activities.

Known for quality and variety since the Middle Ages, Belgium produces more than 2,500 different types of the beverage.

The Belgian Beer Festival is held annually in different regions of the country. The festival provides an opportunity for brewers and beer connoisseurs to share and indulge in their passion.

In April this year, Belgium took steps to have Belgian beer recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage product.

The non-profit event is co-organised by the Embassy of Belgium, Beluxcham and Anheuser-Busch InBev – the world;s largest brewing company headquartered in Leuven, Belgium – and three domestic companies including Beer Plaza, SBB and My Way.

The Embassy of Belgium is planning to organise the festival annually in Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City, according to Belgian Ambassador, Angelet Bruno.

Tickets including three bottles of beer can be bought at the entrance or through the hotlines 09.7467.7754 or 04.3519.0808.
