I am delighted to announce that Cristian Guerrero has agreed to be the organizer for our beer group. Check out http://www.meetup.com/beer-119/ for all upcoming events.
We are very proud to announce that after the Gold medal at the World Beer Challenge 2013, Gulden Draak has been awarded with another Gold medal in the Brussels Beer Challenge 2013. This international beer tasting competition was held in Liège.
The Brussels Beer Challenge was launched in 2012 to promote the beer industry in a market that is not only a benchmark for beer but also home to connoisseurs. The event was backed by WBT – Wallonia-Brussels Tourism – and was this year part of the 2012-2013 Wallonia Taste the Difference promotion program. The Challenge finally brought to Belgium a prominent international competition. Although there are already acclaimed competitions elsewhere, it was only fitting that Belgium should offer brewers across the globe a representative, yet independent trade venue to compete against one another.
