Beer-events Leiden (English)

Four times a year the city of Leiden is graced by a beer event. These events offer you the opportunity to savour many different beers from small Dutch breweries.

The spring and autumn events are pub crawls on foot where each pub offers a different special beer. The summer event transports you from one beer to the next by boat. The winter event takes place in Scheltema, where the brewers will be present in person to tell you everything about their beer.

Of course, each season brings its own, specific beer.

Join the fun and buy your ticket for the Winterbierfestival  here. You will receive your own special beer glass and 2 coins to start you off. More coins can be bought on site.

“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline – it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but in the very least you need a beer.” (Frank Zappa)

So if you still need proof the Netherlands is a real country, join the Winterbierfestival on January 29 in Leiden.  About fifteen small Dutch breweries will be present to let you taste their finest beer. You will get the opportunity to savour the best of Dutch special beers and find your next favourite.

On entry (€ 10,- when you enroll through the website) you will receive a special tasting glass and 2 coins to purchase your beer. More coins can be bought on site (€ 2,50 a piece).
