Brasserie Lion will provide beers at Give Music a Chance!

It would arguably not be a proper music festival in Belgium without beer – and we did not have to look far. We are extremely happy to share with you that the local Waterloo brewery Brasserie Lion will serve their beers at the festival (we also like the lion a lot…..)

A wish to offer a dynamic and contemporary image of the Belgian craft beer industry was a dream that started in the basement of the parents of one of two young beer entrepreneurs – Laurent and Alexis – and in only a few years, the dream has become a reality. Their craft brewed beer uses of champagne yeasts, organic hops from the rarest variety, organic malts and the most innovative brewing techniques. Enjoy these fantastic beers responsibly!

See more pictures of the beers and the brewery here and check out their homepage here.
