Uit Je Eigen Stad Beer Festival

Rotterdam’s newest beer festival

One of the things I love most about Rotterdam is its innovative spirit and how it embraces new developments and sustainable solutions. Uit Je Eigen Stad, which literally translates as ‘From Your Own City’ is one of those great initiatives, an urban farm that grows its own produce to serve in their restaurant. What better place to have Rotterdam’s first beer festival this February, featuring only local beers?

World’s longest beer garden

A mile long beer fest, wouldn’t that be phenomenal? It exists! Although not a local Rotterdam beer event, this experience was so special, I had to include it in my blog. The International Berlin Beer Festival, also called ‘the beer mile’, is an amazing 2,2 kilometer beer festival right in the heart of the city, near Alexanderplatz. According to the Guinness Book of Records it is the longest beer garden in the world.
