Living in the south of the Netherlands, one of our favorite places to go to on a weekend away is Antwerp. One of the beer festivals in the top 5 best beer festivals in The Netherlands and Belgium must be Billies. But who is Billie?
In July 2021 Monique, Frank and I experimented with medieval brewery in our beloved museum preHistorisch Dorp Eindhoven. The goal was not to brew a drinkable beer (although that would have been nice) but to show people how brewing could have been done back then. Based on our earlier research we decided to use hot stones this time.
