On 25 and 26 November, the second edition of the Beer Dome Basel (BDB) will take place in the Markthalle in Basel. We spoke to Andreas Klein from the event team and he told us about what will be different this year.
To travel is to discover. We discover craft beer while traveling. Whether at craft beer festivals, on short trips or on longer journeys. Craft beer accompanies us. Whether in Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, England, Denmark or Finland, in the East or overseas.
Bierversuche.ch is a craft beer online magazine and blog. We cover craft beer tastings. We write about beer awards. And we provide background information about the craft beer market and the (Swiss) craft beer scene.
Beer Dome Basel – a market hall full of craft-beer
We were at the Beer Dome Basel and tried to try our way through over 100 beers from more than 25 national, continental and international breweries.
Crawling through breweries in South London (with video)
London is a world-class beer city. This has always been the case – after all, London has shaped the development of beer styles such as Porter and IPA. But what was sometimes missing was the opportunity to visit breweries for a beer. However, the number of breweries with taprooms has risen sharply in recent years, so that not only the legendary beer mile in Bermondsey is worth a visit. For example, we traveled further south and visited six breweries there.
Leatherpants at the Great Canadian Beer Festival
With the last remnants of a jetlag hanging in our skull like evaporating water droplets from a harbor fog, our brain was filled to capacity with impressions: We just came back from seeing orcas in the wild, more bald eagles than pigeons and rough-edged coasts and soft moss on millions of trees. In such a state, seeing a person dressed like a unicorn, on a field full of seagull shit, on an island – may it be as big as Belgium, the whole experience could have felt like a motorcycle race during a sandstorm outside of Las Vegas. In the end, attending the Great Canadian Beer Fest(ival) was very little gonzo, but very much fun.
Wortspiele: a giant collaboration and exclusive beerfestival
Wortspiele is what you get, when you produce 15 hl of wort; give it to more than 20 brewers who then make beer from it to serve at one event. We here at bierversuche organize this shindig and Number 3 just happened at La Nébuleuse. Mid-February people were treated to 35 completely different and exclusive beers.
