The festival

ZBF 2022

The ZYTHOS Beer Festival will take place, subject to changed corona measures, on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April 2022 in the Brabanthal in Heverlee (Leuven).

This website is undergoing a complete renovation and certain information dates before the planned but canceled festival in 2020.

The previous editions of the Zythos Bier Festival were no doubt a tribute to the Belgian artisinal beer. Introducing our visitors to the innovations of the almost 600 Belgian breweries and beer firms is our most important motivation to organise the next edition. The international nature of our festival is proven by the visitors from over 30 countries. The ZBF is and remains the biggest beerfestival in the world exclusively focussing on Belgian beer.

This year we will be offering 88 stands staffed by brewers and beer firms, just like last year. At these stands, you can exchange tokens for one of the 600 different Belgian beers on offer. All beers are served in a 10cl tasting glass. Everyone is welcome at the festival, though beer will only be served to people older than 16.

In short, the ZBF is an ideal place to discover or rediscover the whole family of the Belgian (special)beers.
