Ok, so I won a trip to Belgium from Affligem USA and DRAFT magazine. We get into Brussels around 10:00 in the morning on 8/30 and are there until Monday, 9/3 before we head to Cologne for 2 days. Going to be at Affligem Abbey/Mort Subite all day Friday (part of the package), and I was told we have "admission" to the beer fest at the Grand P'lace that weekend. But from the looks of it on the website, there really isn't an admission fee, it's more or less "pay per play", i.e. you have to buy full pours/bottles, it's not all inclusive with a flat fee or tickets or anything. Anyways, wanted to know if any of you have been to this before and have some suggestions as far as straegy or how it all goes, and if anyone is going, we'd love to make some new friends there. Got a full docket the rest of the weekend, between the beer bars and going to Cantillon and possibly Drie Fonteinen. Thanks in advance!
