Beer diner

On Wednesday the 15th of April, the Beer diner will take place again.

Beer and Food contest

Combining beer and food together is becoming quite the craft in the always rapidly changing world of food and beverages. In other words, it’s here to stay and knowing that beer and food contain the same basic ingredients. When it comes to the taste, beer has a broader bandwidth than wine. This offers a lot of opportunities for restaurants and also for pubs.

During the festival several restaurants will offer various appetizers. There will also be a beer and food contest. Catering Companies from all over The Netherlands will have the opportunity to present the tastiest and most surprising beer & food combination to a jury of experts. Sign up for the beer and food contest via Be quick, because there is only a limited space available. Participation costs €25 per restaurant.

Brewery Competition

During the ninth edition of the Beer Festival Groningen we challenge amateur brewers to brew the best Brut India Pale Ale. A Brut India Pale Ale is a hoppy, not so bitter, dry, light yellow to gold colored beer type that originated in San Francisco, USA. Do you think you have the best recipe and can brew the tastiest Brut India Pale Ale? Then sign up by sending an email to The winner of the competition will be announced on Saturday 6 April at Beer Festival Groningen 2019. The winner of the competition will brew his beer commercially and this will be sold nationwide at the Mitra Liquor Stores!
