Bier op een rij

As we arrange the hall, the decorations, 150-200 different beers, other drinks, different kinds of food and try to maintain our prices as low as possible, we kindly ask not to bring other food and drinks with you in the hall.


The Christmas beer festival is an organization by 

Objectieve Bierproevers Essense Regio)

We will work again with pre-sale tickets only on both days. We sell packages with 7tokens, a bottle of water, a festival guide and a glass for 25 online through this website. If you want to come both days you will need two tickets. Only on Saturday evening from 7PM you can pay at the entrance. The festival closes at 11PM that day.

extra tokens are 2.00 each to pay cash or card at our cash desk at the festival. 

Most beers are only 1 token. Few of them cost 2 or even three tokens for a 15cc glass. These beers are often very exclusive and have a high price for us to buy as well.

It's possible to buy a complete bottle, to share with some friends, or to take home. This bottle will cost the price in tokens we would ask for the glasses we can get out of the bottle, meaning 2 tokens for most 25 or 33cc bottles, 5 tokens for a 75cc bottle and 10 tokens for a Magnum (1.5l) bottle. We will help you at the beer shop in the back of the hall on the right where you can pay cash or card.
