The Brussels Beer Café: Doomed Relic or Durable Icon? Live Belgian Smaak Podcast Panel Discussion

16 July, 2022 @ 15:00 CEST

The Brussels beer café is an institution that has enjoyed as much acclaim as it has suffered fatigue. Join us for an afternoon of discussion in the cosy Goudblommeke café, recorded and photographed for The Belgian Smaak Podcast, during which Breandán Kearney of Belgian Smaak hosts a distinguished panel of guests to chat about the romantic power, complex business, and cultural significance of the Brussels café, and what might be in store for its future.

The Guests

👉 The Brussels Brewer: Yvan De Baets (Brasserie De La Senne)

👉 The Brussels Cafébaas: Jody Lecieux (Brussels Beer Café, Gist)

👉 The Brussels Activist: Joaquín de Santos Barbosa (from BruxellesFabriques, publisher of Estaminets and Cafés, Brussels Stories)
