The past few months a lot of events got cancelled or postponed. This means the Brabanthal now has the difficult task to fit al these events in next year’s calendar.

As far as ZBF 2021 goes, this means it won’t take place during the usual last weekend of April, but it will take place April 17 and 18.

Look on the bright side: this means the long expected 17th edition of the Zythos Bierfestival is now one week closer!

Stay safe & stay healthy! We look forward to welcoming you all again at the Brabanthal, Leuven next year!

ZBF 2020 cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the decisions of the Belgian government regarding the COVID-19 virus, we are forced to cancel the Zythos Beer Festival 2020 on April 25 and 26, 2020.
If you already bought your starterpack in advance, you will receive a refund. The refund is automatic, you don’t have to do anything.

Hopefully you understand this exceptional situation and we would love to see you next year, April 24 & 25, 2021.

COVID-19 update

The last couple of weeks it’s been hard not to hear the news about the Coronavirus, COVID-19.

Yesterday the Belgian government gave the advice to cancel all events with more than 1000 visitors. This advice stands untill March 31st.

Seeing as the Zythos Bierfestival takes place April 25 and 26, the festival WILL GO AHEAD AS PLANNED.

Of course we will follow the situation closely and we will keep you posted if there are any new government guidelines.
