This weekend we had the pleasure of stepping back to a place that holds a very special place in our hearts here at North, Brussels!
We poured our beers to the people of Belgium in a castle at Swafff festival, thanks to the amazing Antoine, Grégoire and the team!
Shout out to Schimon of Brasserie de la Senne for being a superb host, showing us around the brewery and making sure our glasses were constantly full of Taras Boulba!
Thank you Dynamo – Bar de Soif for hosting an excellent after party, feeding us that delicious cod liver on toast (sounds questionable, it really isn’t!) and for allowing @craftbeeryall to sabre a big ‘ol bottle of Gueuze Tilquin open!
Cheers Grant (of Six Degrees North fame) for being so kind as to share your bottle of Struise’s Mocha Damnation! – special thanks to Nuetnigenough for opening up at 2AM so we can sit down and crack that one open!
Also, thanks to Moeder Lambic Fontainas for serving us last minute and making it possible for Grant to drink a pint of Cantillon Saint Lamvinus!
Brekeriet, your Salt and Pepper Gose bought greatness to our bloody Mary’s! – it was great to meet Irin of Secret Sisters Brewing
Last but not least, cheers Brian and Thomas ‘what I like hot dogs, OK?’ Bissett of NORTHERN MONK for keeping us company the whole weekend! – thanks @nmbcobri for flying us home on your private jet. #bryanair
