Dutch Beer Week 2014Festivals / Other
May 15-25 2014, Various times
After two successful editions, the Dutch Beer Week (Het Week van Nederlandse Bier) is back with an expanded programme that puts the attention on enjoying domestically brewed beers.
About Dutch Beer Week
The Netherlands is the largest exporter of beer in Europe, but Dutch beer is more than just Heineken and Amstel. There are more than 140 breweries operating in the Netherlands!
With a very rich tradition in brewing, the organisers of Dutch Beer Week have made it their mission to draw attention to the booming beer scene in the many provinces, cities and villages throughout the Netherlands.
Looking beyond taste and enjoyment, the week-long event also wants to raise awareness of pressing issues in the industry such as sustainability and the economic importance of brewing.
