It's Spring in Brussels and the Fests Are Blooming.

Looking forward to the Vilvordia BierProefFestival in Jette on Saturday. Also the Tour de Geuze on Sunday. Yessir, gonna be a fine weekend here in the Brabant.

The Vilvoordia fest starts at 10 a.m. and presumably goes pretty late. There are 70 options on the list, and it's pretty strong on quality. Also some serious rarities there, like the one-offs Crianza Helena and Zwanze from Cantillon.

Jette is essentially in northern Brussels. To get there from the center, the simplest way is probably Metro to Simonis and then take Bus 13 to its endpoint, UZ-Brussel. Hang a left (south) after the bus stop and hunt for signs pointing toward the "Erasmushogeschool," Jette campus. The event is in that school's cafeteria. It's a new location for the fest, and I've never been to this one anyway, so that's the best I can do.
