Another month another brilliant beer event. This July, Ales Tales are bringing Belgium to London for some hoptastic fun including tastings of over 60 Belgian beers from 20 breweries (oh, and some food to soak it all up).
Ales Tales was founded by two Belgians, Nicolas Tondeur and Sayuri Kasajima, who have lived in the Big Smoke for the past four years, but missed some of the ace Belgian beers which just weren’t available this side of the channel.
The festival will host some of the best breweries in Belgium, from small batch micro-breweries including En Stoemelings, ‘t Hofbrouwerijke, Fort Lapin and De Leite to larger well-known producers such as Brasserie de la Senne, Hof Ten Dormaal and Bertinchamps (prizes to all who can pronounce everything correctly at the end of the session). Food will be served up by one of Brussels top chefs Fabrice Rocheteau while a selection of Belgium’s finest cheeses will be on offer for beer pairings.
Nicholas Tondeur, Organiser of Ales Tales Festival says “we are proud of the fact that we have created Ales Tales Festival to celebrate everything that makes Belgian beer and food great. UNESCO just added Belgian beer to its Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016 so now we want to showcase our beer’s quality and diversity to the city of London, from the traditional tripel to the other sides of the beer spectrum. Expect some of the finest beers from Belgium that you won’t find in the UK”.
Anyone that knows me will know of my true love for Belgian beer, so this is an event I’ll definitely be attending. See you at the bar!
