Celebrating its 14th edition in 2017, the Zythos Bierfestival has been the meeting point for beer aficionados since 2003. There are more than 500 kinds of beers served at 88 stands – all from Belgian breweries. “Zythos upholds the interests of consumers and breweries, and promotes Belgium’s precious beer culture,” begins chairman Freddy Van Daele. This beer culture is known and treasured worldwide, and was recently added by UNESCO to its Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. Zythos is the biggest and oldest beer festival in Belgium and its international status is represented by the large number of visitors from abroad.
