Beer has slowly regained its place at the dinner table in the last few years. Beer can be a great companion with food and is perhaps even more versatile than wine. All is possible: from a three to six-course dinner accompanied by beer, or a cheese tasting with fitting beers – beer at the table offers virtually unlimited possibilities. Beer with chocolate, beer with seafood, Cheese War – almost everything is possible and on several locations. It could be at your home or in the office, in a restaurant or private dining.

Minimum participation: 10 people. Minimum tastings: 4 beers.
Tariff indication: depends on group size, theme and amount of beers. A four-beer, ten-people tasting ‘Cocoa Wonderland’ starts at € 32,50 per person (excluding travel expenses).
