The Toer de Geuze (Geuze Tour) is a biennial event to promote the breweries of the Senne valley : EN – Toer De Geuze – at home

Which for obvious reasons isn't happening this year, so instead Breandán Kearney of Belgian Smaak, and Liselot Caura of BeerSecret are hosting virtual MTBs next weekend with representatives of the companies involved :

20:00 – 20:15 Closing session with Gert Christiaens, president of HORAL.

(I assume that's Belgian time, so 15:00 is 9am in New York, 6am in California)

And for those who can get to a Delhaize in Belgium, they've put together a pack of old geuzes from the participating breweries (ignore the Lindemans tag, I guess they did the logistics) which seems to be available in two versions, a wooden box and cardboard (the latter has one more beer but no glass.

Just your regular supermarket beer - €34.99 is US$42.19/C$52.66/A$54.55/£30.39 for 8, the cardboard is €5 less.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Alright, anyone that is familiar with getting beers shipped from over seas, how can we get the box in the states? I can’t find it on Drizly. Not that they ship to my location anyway.
