The 35th annual Bokbier Festival is being held on October 26th through 28th, at the lovely Beurs van Berlage in the center of Amsterdam.
Come by and taste a selection of bock beers and hear live music!

Bock beer is the name for a strong, usually dark lager originating in Germany.
A variation of bock called “bokbier” is also brewed extensively in the Netherlands and occasionally in Belgium. Most larger Dutch breweries, such as Heineken, Grolsch, Amstel, Alfa Brouwerij, Brand and Dommelsch, market at least one variety. Most bokbiers tend to be seasonal beers that are traditionally released in autumn, although there are currently also spring, summer and winter boks.
Many Dutch microbreweries also seasonally brew a bokbier, such as IJBok made by Brouwerij ‘t IJ in Amsterdam, Jopen Four Grain Bokbier made in Haarlem and the Texels Bockbeer made on the island of Texel.

The opening hours for the festival are:
Friday 17:00-23:00
Saturday 12:00-23:00
Sunday 12:00-19:00

The entry fee is €10, and there is also a €2 fee for beer consumption.
