Good Beer Guide Belgium signing/sipping event

Hail STUDS! 

I'll be on a mini-book-tour end of April, as co-author of the 7th edition of Good Beer Guide Belgium. Naturally the STUDS deserve some credit for the education found therein. Now we can say affirmatively that the "Belgian Beer Bible" is at least 50% STUD-written.

Would love to see anyone who could make it at Waterstones on Saturday, April 26, around 11:30 a.m. We can vandalize your copy, after you buy one. We should also have a few beers for tasting, a good warmup if you're headed to ZBF afterward.

Dinner with spouses/partners

Dinner with SO

book exchange

Hello guys

                   We have decided to start a book exchange program. If you have a book that you have finished reading and would like to share please bring it to lunch on Fridays and pass it along to other STUDS members. Hopefully you will find a book that someone else is finished with that you can take home with you.


Thanks and take care



The January quiz will take place on Monday 20 Jan.

The specialist country will be Australia. 

Please let me know if you'll be participating.  It costs €10 per person.  Please send an e-mail to my private address:

SOs are very welcome and encourged to join us.

Happy New Year to you all.



Herman is closed

Just a reminder to all that Herman Le Baron is closed for 3 weeks.

I won't be here next friday the 27th However if some of you want to meet, I suggest to post a thread on this forum.

For the 3rd of January, I propose a special holiday meet at the Xmas Market in Brussels where we can enjoy a few hot wines and eat some cheesy food outside. We could meet in front of The bourse at 12:30 

let me know if you like the idea and/or you intend to come.

Merry Xmas to you all, Thierry
