Anyone here thinking of going to this, this year,I have been to De Molen a few times, lovely place, but never to the festival. Have a hotel booked already, may get tickets soon then only flights to book. Pity festival tickets go on sale so soon, as its ages away yet, sure if i buy them I'll have to go.

Got 2 tickets for the Saturday, staying in Leiden, about 20 mins on train, handy trip done it many times. Lemmys biercafe Leiden will be my after party spot, small but plenty of choice.

Plans changed, 3 of us going to Festival on the Saturday now, cancelling the hotel in Leiden too. Booked into cosey Eurocamp mobile in Wassenaar (stayed loads times before)for five nights instead, cheaper than 2 nights in the hotel. Also on my list are Uiltje and Jopen again in Haarlem, Oedipus and 't arendsnest in Amsterdam, anything else worth a visit??
I got hotel double room in Leiden ages ago for 2nights for 2ppl for 150 on booking.com, so will be cancelling soon, if anyone else wanted the details to get it when it's back up for grabs!
Why no Irish breweries invited yet I wonder??

Two more brewery announcements to come. Or maybe Galway Bay's plans changed since they announced they were going in May.

Yep, I have my tickets.

Really enjoyed the Borefts festival, my first time at their festival. Great weather, great company (father and brother) and some very good beers too. Bumped into John, Beernut, also, who was on a mini beer festival holiday??
My favourite part of the day was just sitting at the outside tables watching the sun fade away and a lovely blue sky behind the Windmill, a perfect end to the day, really is one of the prettiest breweries i've ever been to. Got some nice logo 'd plastic bottles for cycling and some nice take home beers too.
My brother also found a beer token in his pocket back at the accomodation, i felt like punching him, so maybe if its hanging around this time next year, ill pass it to one of yee.
