There's a lot curious facts related to the production of beer in Belgium. The history of beer production dates back about 1000 years. In Belgium, it's produced over 800 different beers. Names and labels are about 300, some of them have more than 400-500 years of history. It's known one saying: "Lover of wine speak with the cup and beer lover - with their neighbors." In the event that at any Belgian supermarket are presented less than 20 different brands of beer, anyone can file a complaint for infringement of consumer rights to the Commission for Consumer Protection.

Event organizers of the Belgian Beer Weekend 2014 had prepared a special program featuring representatives of the most popular brands of beer. In the afternoon on 06 September on the Grote Markt of Brussels have arrived the horse-drawn and coachman in traditional costumes, bearing the casks with a beer of some of the most famous brands of beer. The manufacturers have tried to make their presentation very attractive. There was presented some of the brands as Bavik since 1894, Omer, Waterloo, Pauwel Kwak produced since 1791 and Tripel Karmeliet since 1679 of Bosteels Brewery and many others.
