The week’s finale will be held on Thursday, July 20 and is reserved for the trade. It will be reception style and hosted at the Flanders Investment and Trade office in New York City which features stunning views of Manhattan.

Representatives from Artisanal Imports’ Belgian roster will be on hand throughout the week to share, sample and discuss their craft with fellow beer lovers. This includes delegates from Vliegende Paard Brouwers (Prearis), Brouwerij Bosteels and Brasserie St-Feuillien.

Jesse Mogk, General Sales Manager at D&V International, sums up the week: “The Belgian beer experience is something that we, as importers, have always dreamed of being able to share with the American public. We are beyond excited that we were all able to partner together to bring the best of Belgium to America for the National Belgian Beer Week! If you have been to Brussels Beer Weekend, then you know that nothing like this has ever been done in the U.S. Join us for a beer (or ten!) Santé!”
