Fri September 27 at 8:00 PM, Brouwerij de Molen
Overtocht 43, 2411 BT Bodegraven, The Netherlands (Map & Directions)
Europe's best craft and boutique beer festival, held at Brouwerij de Molen, in the Netherlands.
Each year, the Dutch brewery Brouwerij de Molen organises a beer festival and invites a bunch of their friends, who turn out to be some of the most interesting brewers in Europe. The festival lasts two days. Entry price is around 20 euros, which includes a glass, 8 beer tokens, a programme, and a bottle of water to help cleanse the palette.

This year, the festival is also offering special beer-themed 3-course meals each evening. Booking can be made through their web shop. Limited spaces are available.

More information on the festival can be found on their website, including the list of brewers.

Liz and I will do the meal both days, probably the 18:45 session.

I'll have to skip this year, as I'll be living in the States by then... more on that in another meetup proposal TBA!

Aaah nuts! I'm very likely out of the country that weekend - have a beer or two for me won't you?

I might be at a conference in Dubai (shudder), but if not, then I will try to come and possibly bring Ms Primate this time!

Will update status in a couple of weeks when I know more....

Just to confirm, I've booked dinners for me and Liz, 18:45 both days.
posted by daveje at 3:25 AM on July 20, 2013

I will be at the meetup on Friday at 20.00. This sounds terrific! Is anyone interested in the 3-course dinner on Friday at 17.00 as well? (The meal at 18.45 are sold out, unfortunately; otherwise, I would join daveje and Liz.).

Not sure I can make it, but is there A Plan other than the sort of semi-random (but all good of course ) stuff above?
posted by digitalprimate at 2:41 AM on September 26, 2013

I'm afraid I'll have to miss this one.

Plan A for me and Liz is to go both days. There's no plan B.

Probably arriving around 6 on Friday, and between 2 and 3 on Saturday. There's a small room in the middle of the windmill, I suggest we try to meet there tomorrow evening at 8pm, and try for the same place at 4pm Saturday.

MeMail me if you want/need my phone number.

I will be in "the small room in the middle of the windmill" (I hope this place is obvious...) at 8pm with my +1. We are two guys wearing plaid with beards and glasses. To clarify, we have beards and glasses, the plaid does not.

Aww man, I know that room and now I'm extremely jealous. Have fun you guys!

I'm not sure if I can make tonight because of work, but I'll be there tomorrow.

Plaid. Beards. Glasses. Also Ursine?
posted by daveje at 4:16 AM on September 27, 2013

No plaid. But beards and glasses. These really are characteristics that will set me apart from all the other non-MeFi beer drinkers tonight.

Will be wearing my Narke shirt from last year, if that helps.

A Narke t-shirt may not be enough of a differentiator either at this particular beer festival, but we'll find you.

Aim to be there around fiveish.
