Did you know that the BAC (BAr Committee) is turning 25 this academic year? And that the BAC (Bijzondere Activiteiten Commissie) is even older? This means that we will be celebrating our fifth en seventh Lustrum at the same time! Most activities will likely take place in May (more on this later). However, we are planning to kick off our Lustrum year with a legendary weekend full of BAC related activities (we’re gonna drink beer, duh). The weekend will take place in the marvelous city of Antwerpen, Belgium. We have put together a filled (but not too busy) schedule, full with activities that every beer-enthusiast is sure to enjoy.
During the weekend, we will stay in a hostel in the middle of the beautiful historical city center. On Friday, we have organized a delicious 2-course dinner where you can enjoy one of the 366 Belgian craft beers that are served. After the dinner, you are free to explore Antwerpen (and its nightlife) some more.
On Saturday afternoon, we will have a tour of a real Belgian brewery! 2 beers are included in this tour, such that we can enjoy the tour even more. After the tour, we will make the streets of Antwerpen unsafe (in a safe way) on 2 beer bicycles, that we are free to use for 2 hours. Of course, beer is included, as is the BOB (designated driver), such that we can all enjoy some beers while on the road. What you want to do for the rest of the weekend is yours to decide, but it is likely that beer will still be involved in some way.
The weekend will only cost you €65 if you are a student and €115 otherwise. Transport, stay in the hostel, dinner for one night, the tour of the brewery and the beer bicycles are included in this price. We can only take 32 people with us, so make sure to subscribe fast! The subscription list opens Friday the 23rd of September at 12:00, if it is full before 17:00 there will be a draw, afterwards it is first come, first serve. Note that students have priority over burgers, as have people with cars.
Note: due to university regulations, freshmen are not allowed to join on a international trip.
