Belgium - Essen


From: 2015.12.15 To: 2015.12.16



Official website:



O.B.E.R. (Objective Beer tasters Essen Region) organizes its Christmas Beer Festival every year. For two days, visitors can taste more than 100 Belgian Christmas and winter beers. A glass can be obtained for 3 Euro, but if you return it when you leave, you get a full refund. However, lots of glasses are kept as souvenirs. To create optimal tasting conditions the event will be kept completely smoke free. The beer list is regarded as one of the best in the world, with several scoops and interesting gems combined with world classics. Previous years have had more than 100 different bottled beers to taste, and 12 or 16 on draught. Hot served Gluhkriek will of course still be available as well. While soup and beef stew will be prepared with Christmas beer and bread baked with Christmas beer are also rapidly becoming a legend. On an average about 1800 thirsty Christmas-beer-lovers came to the festival in Essen. And not only from Belgium! The festival has a very international audience coming from the Netherlands, England, France, Germany, Luxemburg, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Russia, Denmark, Norway, New-Zealand, Japan, Canada and the USA.
