Cantillon Brewery Tour
Located in Bruxelles, Belgium, the brewery is located about a half hour walk from the city center. However there are plenty of scooters and bicycles for rent if you are so inclined.

Feature 20 nationwide and local breweries poured some great sour and wild ales. Live music by the CJ Baker Band plus four local Durham Food Trucks were available.
Not quite a legit beer fest here but it was an oasis in a sea of Pabst Blue Ribbon for those attending Bonnaroo 2019 so I wanted to give it some quick coverage: A set of 24 different breweries were ready to pour including some highlights such as Bhramari , Lagunitas, Hi-Wire, New Holland, Brooklyn and others. Asheville, NC was well represented! You could buy tokens at the front or pay by credit card (or wristband).
