Bokbeerfestival & Foodpairing in “De Beurs van Berlage” Central Amsterdam

Friday 26th and Saturday 27th October 2018 , the traditional Bokbeerfestival takes place right in the Centre of Amsterdam in the Beurs van Berlage building. For the first time in 40 years we introduce Foodpairing; The International well known Beer sommelier Arvid Bergström has made recipes for foods and snacks that taste extraordinary when consumed together with a Bokbeer.

This year there will be October-Feste style like tables and seats around the floor , so you can relax for a moment if you wish.
