A fascinating story

The Brussels Beer Challenge, the first professional beer competition in Belgium, was created by Becomev (Beer Communications & Events) under the leadership of Luc De Raedemaeker and Thomas Costenoble in 2012 in response to the growing interest in beer culture.

The first edition of the Brussels Beer Challenge took place in 2012 at La Bourse in Brussels. Since then, the event has moved regularly and expanded to become one of the world’s most important and prestigious competitions.
