 Our Dream !

As we see how the brewing vibe is spreading all over the World, Not only in the beer-belt countries in Europe and the whole of the USA but also in Asia & Down Under people are starting up breweries on every scale you can imagine. Even in the traditional wine-minded countries in the south of Europe and all parts of South America Craft Beer Brewing is a fast growing trend to enjoy drinking and producing beer a certain fact.

All those people, wherever they are, driven by a passion to re-install this craft and explore its fruits in their own or mixed traditions, don’t only share the interest in the fluid, but also the curiosity to discover new or other beers, made by fellow craftsmen elsewhere on the globe.

Thanks to social media, the global distribution, and transportation nowadays, they are able to inform themselves about what’s happening, changing or evolving on their global market.

Well our idea is to make that market a physical one, a yearly gathering by brewers for brewers. A “fair trade market – festival – branch-fair” for people active in the beer craft, and the  Global-Beer-Fan of course.

Where better to  host this Festival  then in Belgium. In a country in the hart of Europe  , where local beer-brewers have been loyal to authenticity  as well as differentiation in their products. Hundreds of local  traditions for centuries now, created a unique beer-scene with a never seen  variety in beers as a result.

A yearly International Beer festival, where breweries from all over the world are invited to show, share and sell their beers on a real market place here in the beautiful historical center of Antwerp. To meet up, and to talk or to discuss, to taste, to judge and to compare. But finally and in the end just probably mostly wanting  to share, to learn to feel to trade and to understand

Fact is that my friends & crew, the city event team and the local beer and hospitality businesses are supporting this initiative with heart and soul . That the local government is positively curious about the outcome of our noble future plans But as a proud host will be welcoming and hosting the international beer-community as their honored guests.

Fact is that we are working hard on special transportation deals and shipping conditions or formulas for all participants and visitors.
That Antwerp is a city with a great beer-history for more the eight centuries.
That it is a two hour drive to Amsterdam(north) as well as to Paris(south).
There are about 180 breweries (the majority open for visits) in this 11.787 sq miles of Beer Paradise.

Let’s also not forget the extra commercial value for your business and other future professional possibilities in other various ways. The making of new or maintaining already existing relationships by way of live contact is typical & by far the greatest advantage of a event like this.

So dear reader that’s it for now. We know that the start and the first steps of any Event needs isn’t the easiest part and needs great efforts. This first year we’d like to create a good, fair trading and business climate with new opportunities for every participant, and the well meant smile of a satisfied visitor strolling on this years festival & for future years.
All this based on true camaraderie, open-minded friendship and the worldwide solidarity in the love for the craft, it’s beers and the respect for your fellow beer-lover.

Oh Yes, we do believe in this project. I am personally convinced the vision that the global trade by S MB’s will become an important part of the hopeful changing foundation of an Economical model with other, probably better, more human-minded and social Ethics.

But we need YOU, YOUR opinion, YOUR knowledge
