In July the Beer Idiots visited a few familiar places in one of our favourite cities, dropped off a few posters for Belgium Beer Week, and completed the trip by visiting the Namur Capitale de la Biรจre festival. This was the 10th anniversary of the festival held 8-12 July 2022. This yearโ€™s fest at the Esplanade de la Citadelle featured some 40 breweries with 160+ beers to try. With the beer came musical groups, food trucks, roast pork on a spit, and some interesting dancing under the sun.
