    I never heard of it but the date will be easy to remember as I have a sister born on the 6th. There aren't many Belgian beers in town but I'll be sure to hoist a glass of a few of them that day.

    My view is that they need a web designer.

    This is just a fun event designed to encourage people to toast the original craft brewers - the Belgians. Worldwide, every 3 hours people are asked to raise a glass to Belgian Brewers. Some places are organizing special events but the gist of it is for the entire world to toast Belgian Brewers. It is on a 3 hour basis so that all time zones can participate.
    Just for fun :)

    Belgians - original craft brewers?

    Think you'll find it was the Egyptians or Mesopotamians!

    Mesopotamian beer used rice so it tasted like Budweiser
    & Egyptian beer was all keg made with very little hops to appeal to the lager lout Pharaohs
    So Belgium has the right to first craft beer brewers :confused:
