24th & 26th August: Blind Beer Tasting Experience

Participate in our Blind Beer Tasting, organised during the Belgium Beer Week.

Extra event August: Zwevegem Bierfestival: Sunday 14th & Monday 15th August

We’re just on time to share with you that BeerSecret has a collaboration with the Zwevegemse Bierfestival this weekend. It became a yearly tradition to participate in that beer festival every weekend of the Assumption of Mary holiday. Let’s try together some local brews from local craft breweries. Can’t wait !! See you there?!

Last week of August: Belgium Beer Week
A SHOWCASE OF BELGIUM BEER CULTURE #BBW22


What’s happening two weeks later? Well, did you know we have some beer friends – Or should we call them beer nerds? Yes, we love beer nerds 🙂 –  from Belgium that once a year promote a week full of beer events?
The non-profit organisation is called Beer.Idiots and they encourage all beer related businesses to organize one or more special beer events during the last week of August.

And of course, we also made our commitment to be part of this BELGIUM BEER WEEK- shortened BBW-this amazing, splashing week full of Belgian beer flavours.


As we are busy making a Blind Beer Tasting Box, and we just offered a prototype to our 6-year anniversary winners, we thought it would be a great idea to already share with you a first impression of this brand new concept!  🤗🤗 

So that’s why we are organising  two Blind Beer Tasting sessions : Wednesday 24th of August in Ghent and Friday 26th of August in Brussels
Ready to tickle your taste buds?

Need a bit more info?
No problem:
What do we mean for example with diving deeper into your tasting experience?
Well, we are working with Tasting Notes. Prepare yourself for this empty sheet 😁😁


Here is what we do:
1. First, after you tasted the beer, you describe for yourself the different beer flavours you are tasting: Sweet? Fruity? Sour? Bitter? Herbal? Malty?
2. We may then conclude the beer style, but we’re not yet revealing who’s behind the label. It’s still too early for that.3.We then open another similar beer and discuss how the beer tastes different or similar from the previous one. Any guesses yet? 🙂
4. Now it’s finally time to reveal the beer -of course in super-slow motion- and SUPRISE!
5. Have you tried the beer before? Did you experience it differently when tasting it blindly? Do your tasting notes match with the professional tasting notes of your beer hosts? 

We present you our lovely beer hosts: (very important!) 🙂
