De Nacht Van de Grote Dorst

Friday - April 25, 2014 @ 12:00AM / Ends: Friday - April 25, 2014 @ Midnight
Beer Festival
In De Verzekering Tegen De Grote Dorst, Lennik, Belgium
Our traditional lambic beers are unique. Nowhere in the world, except in the Pajottenland and the Senne Valley, one can find such a concentration of breweries which still practice the ancient process of spontaneous fermentation. Lambic and Gueuze are part of the heritage and history of the Pajottenland .

The International Gueuze & Kriek Festival Payottenland, better known as the Night of the Great Thirst, is organized every two years. The next edition will take place on Friday, April 25, 2014. The festival aims to not only to promote these beers both at home and abroad, but also known to draw the attention of the local population on the unique character of these regional products.

From 7 PM onwards, visitors can savour Lambic, Gueuze, Kriek, Faro, Framboise and numerous other Lambic beers from 12 producers (Boon, Cantillon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, 3 Fonteinen, Girardin, Hanssens, Mort Subite, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans) producers will be presented. As was also the case during the previous two editions, attention is also paid to foreign beers, which are also produced according to the process of spontaneous fermentation and with a coolship. These beers are not Lambic beers, but they can be considered as distant cousins ​​of the brews of spontaneous fermentation of the Payottenland and the Senne Valley.

Admission to the festival is free.

During the festival, tokens are being sold. These tokens are valid for the purchase of beers, tasting glasses, t-shirts... Draught beers are sold by the glass. On the wall behind each counter is indicated how many tokens are needed to buy a beer.

The Gueuze Society is offerering a free shuttle service between Eizeringen and the train stations of Ternat and Denderleeuw.
