Practical details

Everyone is welcome at the Gueuzerie Tilquin (Chaussée Maïeur Habils 110 at 1430 Bierghes) on Saturday 30 April from 12h00 until 22h00 and Sunday 1 Mei from 11h00 until 21h00.

Start packages are 14 euro (entrance + glass + beer list + 4 tokens) and 25 euro (entrance + glass + beer list + 12 tokens). The entrance is valid for both days. All beers – in 15 cl tasting glass – cost 1 to 2 tokens. One token costs 1.50 euro.

For the hungry there will be food trucks. For the youth there is a bouncy castle. And for those who want to take a souvenir home: there is also a shop where both the British beers and the Tilquin products will be sold.

Reportedly, there even is a regular shuttle service between the station of Enghien and the Gueuzerie Tilquin at Bierghes. So … Untill then!
