White beers with strong hops or hints of citrus zest, brown beers with mild bitterness or strong character, amber beers with herbaceous flavors, red beers with a nice roundness of bergamot, or black beers with chocolate aromas, the beers of the Carrément Bières festival offer with delight their assets and their finery to the taste buds of the most demanding beerlovers.

For one weekend, discover the thousand flavors of this age-old beverage thanks to the presence of nearly 30 craft breweries (including that of Les Hostieux Moines de l'abbaye) and 100 beers made by enthusiasts in Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels.
