On the ground floor, there is an exclusively designed boardroom for 12 participants, with a private bar. The capacity of the room can be expanded via an annex that can set up to 50 people. The whole suite is of course equipped with state-of-the-art multimedia technology. You can opt for customized catering for your meeting, or a lunch or dinner in the brewery’s stylish brasserie with dishes prepared in-house that are sometimes inspired by one of the many speciality beers. The Brasserie is open all day, from Monday through Friday, from 10 am to 8 pm.
For large-scale meetings and congresses, the Beer Castle has 2 lovely rooms on the first floor. The Throne Room holds 110 and the Foeder room can accommodate 130 people in banquet layout. The Foeder room boasts an authentic brewery atmosphere, thanks to the exposed brick walls and foeders (giant wooden barrels) in which the beer van formerly stored for aging (lagering).
The matchless round external patio is connected to the two rooms. It is an ideal setting for a walking dinner or reception. The patio is also equipped with the latest congress infrastructure, including 3-meters-wide screens, a Bose sound system and a central control system for all multimedia.
In search of a setting for your event that is out of the ordinary? The Beer Castle is ‘the-place-to-be’. Completely new, in a concept where authenticity and ultramodernity meet. There are 3 spacious multi-purpose rooms available, in the lovely décor of an active brewery. The outdoor patio offers a breathtaking view of the brewhouse and the foeder room behind a giant glass panel. The space is ideal for holding a stylish walking dinner with up to 300 guests. Fine cuisine, ample parking and easy access.
