We’re proud to announce that we, The Beer Pilgrims Vleteren, in collaboration with Toerisme Vleteren, and the support of Gemeente Vleteren, will launch the first Vleteren Craft Beer Festival Aka Bdd I on June 10th and 11th 2017. This local and International beer festival will be open to the public on Saturday from 14u00 to 23u00 (2PM to 11PM). Opening hours on Sunday will be from 11u00 to 23u00 (11AM to 11PM).

Invitations were sent to all Westhoek breweries, as well as international breweries, and 30+ breweries will join us. To make sure these breweries and our festival guests have all the space possible, the Festival will happen at De Sceure in Oostvleteren.

We thank our fans for their great ideas, and for sharing this post as much as possible. Please help spread the word around!



Please see the map above for information within the area regarding hotels, BnB’s, public transportation, breweries, etc.

Be sure to book your room ASAP. The hotels nearest to the festival are already being booked!


We’re brainstorming ideas regarding the assistance of public transportation such as shuttle services. We are also looking into vendors for food, coffee & tea. More information will be announced as it gets closer to the event date. 

While the entrance is free, we’ll launch an online tickets sale (8cl festival glass + 10 tokens + beer-list & brewery book) by February 15th 2017.

More info on this important issue in the weeks to come, so please stay tuned.

We also keep the Facebook event page updated all the time, so please make sure to like us: Vleteren Craft Beer Festival Aka Bdd I.
