A Jeroboam of beer to toast 25 years of the European Beer Consumers Union
This year marks 25 years since the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands came together to create a union dedicated to the preservation and protection of European Beer Culture. To celebrate the 25th year anniversary, the EBCU will be opening a commemorative three litre bottle of the Belgian beer, St-Feuillien Triple, at the Great British Beer Festival.
Chairman of the EBCU, Henri Reuchlin says “25 years on, as more and more issues affecting beer consumers are being decided in Brussels, European cooperation between beer consumers is as important as ever. Beer cultures across Europe differ considerably and that is the beauty of it. Diversity of choice, consumer information on ingredients and provenance and beer at an acceptable cost is worth fighting for. We’re proud to celebrate 25 years of cooperation between European beer consumers at the great GBBF”
