Dear Bar Trekkers,
This Saturday we shall be going to the Zythos Beer Festival (near Leuven) again. 300 beers!
The beer fest website is here: http://www.zbf.be/index.php?lang=UK&page=1
It runs from 12:00 on Saturday 27th April and in true Bar Trek fashion that's what we will be aiming for (well, almost) There's snacks available (fries, dörum, hamburgers,...) so we can keep nicely fed.
The meeting point will be at the beer festival itself. It's at the "Brabanthal" which we can get to using shuttle buses from Leuven Station.
I will be getting the 11.40 train from Brussels Central station (arriving Leuven 12.03). I encourage you to join me but of course you may travel at any time, in any manner you wish. Don't forget to allow for time to buy your ticket (not sure how much it costs). If you want to join me on the train - don't be late! Meet me on the platform the train goes from (whatever platform that turns out to be) at the end nearest the front of the train.
In fact, when RSVPing 'Yes' if you guess your likely turn up time that would be helpful (though not necessary)
No idea how long we'll stay - till 18:00 at least and possibly longer (but no guarantees past 18:00). As from 18:00 our friends from the Zumwol bar crawl meetup will arrive so we might hook up with them at some point.
Also, there's no easy way to work out a good meeting point at the festival itself, as I don't know in advance which table we'll be at. So you may just need to phone/text me (0497/053166) to find out where we are. It doesn't help that I have never been there myself I suggest meeting at the stand where you buy the beer tokens, as you'll have to be queuing there anyway. Just call me when you are there, and I'll come and get you.

Beer: 1.40 euro per 15cl (paid via tokens)
Beer Glass: 3 euro (returnable deposit)
Toilet: 0.30 euro per visit, or 2€ for whole day
