EP-07 Billies Craft Beer Festival
After the success of Beavertown's #BEAVEREX17 we decided to investigate a European craft beer festival to see how it compared. We wanted to investigate what makes a good festival, why UK brewers decided to participate in festivals abroad, even if they weren't distributed there, what European brewers thought of the UK craft beer scene and how they decided on exact what to bring along.
Billies Craft Beer Festival in Antwerp had 50 of the very best craft breweries from all over the world and utilised with an all-in formula like Beavertown, which is unseen in Belgium and the Netherlands until now. We were able to enjoy about 200 different beers each day, and the beers on Saturday werr completely different from the ones on Sunday. We chatted to some of the best brewers in the world along side some breweries not heard of outside of their cities and towns. We hope you enjoy the listen.
