It’s with a heavy heart we inform you that there won’t be a Zythos Bierfestival in 2021.
Earlier this year, when we had to cancel the ZBF 2020 last minute, everyone was very disappointed. Nevertheless we were very excited to welcome you all back at the Brabanthal in 2021 to enjoy the Belgian beer culture twice as much.
Now, 6 months later, we regret to say that COVID-19 still has a great grip on our lives. Especially for the culture and events sector, there are uncertain times.
- Will it be allowed to organize a festival on this scale?
- Will our foreign visitors be allowed to travel to Belgium?
- Will we find enough volunteers to make sure everything runs smoothly?
Because we only want to organize a festival in optimal circumstances for you, but also for our exhibitors and our volunteers, we’ve decided, after long deliberation, not to organize a Zythos Bierfestival in 2021.
We hope that by April 2022 we will have resumed our normal lives. We will be starting preparations now, to make ZBF 2022 a fantastic edition, where everyone can enjoy the Belgian beer culture safely and 3 times as hard.
We may be out of sight for a while, but hopefully not out of your mind.
See you in 2022!
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!
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.
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.
Due to unforeseen circumstances 3 breweries had to cancel. Brewery Van Den Bossche, Brewery Donum Ignis en Brewery de l’Attrait won’t be present at the Zythos Bierfestival next weekend.
Luckily we found some worthy replacements. Beerfirms Brabance (Stand 75) and FDW Brands (Stand 27) will be joining us. Brewery St. Bernardus moves from stand 70 to Stand 79. This way both Brewery St. Bernardus and Brewery Dupont (Stand 70) will have their own stand.
