Hi guys,
Everything is running smoothly this weekend.
The Beer Swap at Rudy's De Bierboom was just AMAZING!!!! Heading back home at 3.30 am!!
Yesterday was the first day of the 14th. Bruges Beer Fest, and what a great set-up there!
Amazing beers, great people, wonderful organisation, great new location, name it.....
A FEAST !!!
This afternoon, we will head back and take MORE pictures!
Here's a shot of the back side of the information booklet which reveals the dates for next year's 15th edition.

Looking forward to your report Filip. Sounds like this year's swap at Rudy's and the festival itself were both wonderful. 

Cheers! - John

Hi everyone,

Some great news, Linda has just booked our hotel, so after missing out earlier this year...next year we're coming to Bruges for the festival 😄

She's booked us into one special hotel, it's one that's been photographed millions of times (and even starred in a film) we're staying at the Duc De Bourgogne, it's the white hotel opposite 2be and was used for the exterior shots in the film In Bruges

After a three year break we're both dying to get back to our favourite city

Cheers
Jay

You said it mate (and I love the "home away from home" reference...so very true 👍🏻) it will be quite the heartfelt trip, to visit the bars we hold so dear and meet up with friends we haven't seen for such a long time - after a three year wait we can't wait to share a beer or two with our true friends Filip and Katrien.

We arrive mid-day Friday so will be in town with plenty of time for the pre beer festival bottle share at Rudys and that will be some meet up with friends from Bruges, America and across Europe.

Cheers
Jay 🇧🇪
