stands for: Objective Beer-tasters of the Essen Region.
Our club was founded
in 1993 because we care about our fantastic Belgium beer culture. It
appears that most Belgians are no longer aware of their own great beer
culture and they only drink beer of the better-known lager brands,
while the strength of our beer culture is the huge range of beers,
which we can find at more than a hundred breweries we can boast of.
Our aim is to ensure that the small breweries do not disappear. This
would mean a loss of our traditional and artisan beer culture. To
stimulate the diversity in beer styles and
tastes we organize, besides the Christmas Beer
Festival, several tasting sessions, trips to
breweries and beer festivals.
O.B.E.R. is a
foundation of beer-lovers and one of the more than 20 local clubs of
the Belgian confederation of beer-tasters Zythos vzw www.zythos.be
