Leiden - Winter Beer Festival

Scheltema Leiden

"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you should need a beer." (Frank Zappa)

So if you still need proof the Netherlands is a real country, join our Winter Beer Festival on January 27 in Leiden. This is the third edition of the festival and it will be held in Scheltema, Marktsteeg 1, Leiden.

During the Winterbierfestival Leiden, about fifteen small Dutch brewers present themselves with various winter beers. You will get the opportunity to savour the best of Dutch special beers and find your next favourite. The Winter Beer Festival Leiden lasts from 13.30 to 18.30. 

Starter packages (including entry) can be bought in advance. There are two types:

  • Blue with 20cl glass costs EUR 12 (on the day itself at the door EUR 14,50)
