    Hey,
    I'm heading to Belgium in May and was initially planning on leaving before this weekend festival.
    has anyone ever been? is this beer that I can casually drink elsewhere while i'm flitting around Belgium?

    thanks!

    I have been twice. A great event if you like lambics. Many not so hard to get beers, but also some rare, hard to find old beers. I recommend the event, but it is your decision if it is worth altering your plans for.

    The festival for lambic. Some stuff you'll never see anywhere else. It's just a bit of a pain to get to Opstal.

    Is anyone else heading to this? It would be nice to meet up with some people to be able to split some of the bottles.

    I haven't decided if I will be going Saturday or Sunday but as of right now my plans are fairly wide open.

    I am there on Saturday all day. My friend still hasn't booked her ticket to come traveling with me, so i may be solo.
