Beer (Off-)Flavour Challenge

  • Dekkera, la Bièrerie du quartier Wiels 109 Rue Pierre Decosterstraat Vorst, Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest, 1190 Belgium (map)

Dekkera and Brussels Beer City are teaming up to challenge your beer senses.

Do you trust your tastebuds? Can you spot an off flavour from just a sniff of beer? Or are you not able to tell your isoamly acetate from your acetaldehyde?

At the event, we will split you up into small groups (2-3 people per group). Over the course of two flights, you will be served 10 beers that have been adulterated with a beer off flavour or an essential beer flavour. Using your sensory skills, you will have to identify what’s been put in the beer that shouldn’t be there – and bonus points if you can tell us why!

Once the game is out of the way, we’ll give you a quick rundown of what the flavours were, how to spot them, and why they can end up in your beer.

Places are limited (15 people) – so register now!
