Belgian Biere Fest III
Celebrating Belgium with brews, chips and molluscs.
June 14, 2019
Everybody loves a good food pairing, and Belgium has one of the best: moules and frites. Think of it as the fancier version of the Aussie favourite that is fish and chips — because the fact that seafood and potato go well together is something that every nation clearly knows. Throw in a cold brew, and it's heaven in a meal.
It's also on the menu at Brewski's returning Moules & Frites & Biére festival, which takes over the Petrie Terrace bar for a weekend — from 5pm on Friday, July 19 and from midday on Saturday, July 20 — for its third year. That's two days of mussels, fries and beer served up in abundance, making for quite the tasty meal.
Given all things Belgian are in the spotlight for festival, that extends to the tipples flowing through the taps, with various types on offer. Breweries such as Cantillon, Lindemans, Alvinne, Brouwerij Verhaeghe, Oud Beersel and St Bernardus are all likely to get a look-in — and last year's lineup also included Belgian-style offerings from Australia, the US and New Zealand as well.
