THE BRUSSELS BEER CHALLENGE HAS BEEN HELD IN MONS FOR ITS
After a successful event in Mechelen last in 2018, the world-renowned contest went to Hainaut, the Province where Belgian beers are best represented (around 40 breweries, in which the oldest is in operation since 1769!)
The competition has been held in the city of Mons from 1 November to 3 November 2019 for it’s eighth year of existence. Famous for its history, rich folklore and cultural life, Mons is also a lively city due to the numerous events held year-long and the large number of students learning in its universities. Such a vibrant city makes for the perfect setting to host Belgium’s leading beer-centric event.
Brussels Beer Challenge
The Brussels Beer Challenge maintains the same goals: allowing brewers to put their products into the spotlight with the help of a recognized seal of quality. A selection of professional tasters from all around the world will evaluate the quality and specificities of the multiple beers in competition.
An international event by essence, more than 50 countries sent more than 1500 beers. The challenge is a testimony of that evolution, offering a worldwide visibility to the awarded beverages. More than a guide towards the finest beers, the contest aims to become the ambassador of a flourishing beer culture.
