18-19 December 2010


Final list 2013


O.B.E.R. (Objective Beer tasters Essen Region) organizes its Christmas Beer Festival every year. For two days visitors can taste about 170 Belgian Christmas and winter beers. To let you judge the different brews at best, we use 15 cl tasting glasses. A glass can be obtained for 3 Euro, but if you return it to us when you leave, you get a full refund. However, lots of glasses are kept as souvenirs.

Our beer list is regarded as one of the best in the world, with several scoops and interesting gems combined with world classics. This year we'll serve about 150-170 different bottled beers to taste, including 18 or 20 on draught. Hot served Gluhkriek will of course still be available as well. 

At last year's festival about 3000 thirsty Christmas-beer-lovers came to the festival in Essen. And not only from Belgium! We have a very international audience coming from all over the world, counting 37 countries and 18 American States last year!

To deal with the growth of the festival and to shorten the queue outside we'll arrange a "fast lane" (snelkassa) where you can buy a set with a glass, a booklet with tasting notes and 9 tokens for 20€ (preferably exact change). If you still have your glass from previous years, don't need a booklet or want less tokens you stil can go to the normal desk and buy each separately.

Also we have made a deal with the landlord of the pub next to the hall. There will be 100 extra seats provided, as well as a couple of simple dishes for a fair price. Our beefstew, cheeses, sausage and soup will still be present in our own kitchen. (So as usual: please do NOT take your own food into the hall or in the café). At the pub will be at least 3 top Christmas Beers on draught too.

Check out our beer list regularly, or join the mailinglist. Just fill in "join Christmas mailing list" on this form, press send, and we'll keep you posted! A first temporary list will be available online the second half of November. 

There will be shuttle bus provided between the Railway Station Essen and the festival for 1€ pp. 

Have you visited previous editions? Please give us your opinion on the festival, so we can make 2014 even more pleasant for you on December 20 and 21.
