To end the newsletter on a positive note before going into the weekend:
the Belgian Beer Weekend Organizing Committee has created a BBW Home Edition website so you can still enjoy Belgian beers, food and music in your own home!
By purchasing beers you will be supporting several BLCCJ members.
We kindly refer to yesterday’s mailing to see sales and services of other member companies as well.
Stay safe, healthy and home!
