On Wednesday October 2, 2013, the day before ArrrrCamp, we are organizing a day trip from Ghent (the location of Arrrcamp) to some Gueuze and Lambik breweries around Brussels. These beers are unique to this region. The plan is to visit three different breweries, which includes tasting sessions, and have lunch in between.
Tentative schedule is to leave Ghent around 10AM, and be back around 6PM.
Places are limited because the breweries have limited capacity for these guided tours, and because we want to keep the atmosphere cozy and the event manageable.
If you want to join, create a pull request to this repository which creates a single new file in the
attendees directory. The file name should be your name, with underscores for spaces. e.g.
Make sure the email address you use for the Git commit includes a valid email address where we can reach you at. Inside the file you can mention if you want to bring a significant other, any dietary requirements (vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free, etc.), and some info you'd like to share, for instance your twitter handle.
We will merge PRs until we reach our capacity. PRs are served FIFO, and merged up to the point that we have capicity for.
We have an appointment at 11:00 to visit the Brewery Cantillon, which is close to the "Bruxelles-Midi/Brussel-Zuid" Railway station. People can meet up in Ghent (@plexus will be there), or come straight to Brussels. The tour takes an hour and a half, including a tasting session. After that we grab some lunch in Brussels.
At 13:30 a minibus will be waiting for us to take us to the "Pajottenland", a beautiful area to the south of Brussels. There we will visit a number of old traditional Gueuze bars, each with their own selection of regional beers. We aim to back at Bruxelles-Midi around 17:30-18:00.
Here's a Map of places we might visit (too many to do them all)
