Belgian Beers in Slavonia

In the framework of the Month of Francophonie (March 2017), our Attaché was honoured and pleased to support the presentation of several Belgian breweries by Mr. Andréas Radoux.
Saturday March 25th, the founder of AR Pivo Import (https://www.facebook.com/AR-) and his son Arnaud ended up another Croatian Road Show.

This time, the Francophonie lead our Belgian Beer Poets from Zagreb to Split and from Dubrovnik to Osijek.

In front of some 40 enlightened amateurs, Dr Pivo scanned our minds and concluded that the best anti-stress therapy was… brewing beer.
Therefore, we knew it all before tasting several Belgian craft beers : Malheur (Flanders), Petrus Aged Red (Flanders), and mostly the big discovery: Impératrice (Wallonia).

Have to mention two beautiful absents: Sara and Joseph, brewed in the small city of Silenrieux.

Thanks to the owner of the Kafić Uzdravlje (Cheers Café, whose name comes from a very popular American series of the 1980’s) we noticed that several Belgian beers were already put forward.

We hope that the beers of AR Pivo Import will be sooner or later distributed by another famous local stakeholder : Mr. Tibor Kainz, owner of the Kušaonica Piva (Beer Tasting House) and of the web shop http://gajba.hr, which sells a range of more than 150 special beers.
Last but not least, the surprise took the shape of a Croatian-Belgian lady whose belgitude and francophonie charmed more than one, the undersigned in first place.
Mrs. Ivana Šojat is not only a novel writer, a famous publisher and much awarded translator, she is also candidate to the Town Hall of Osijek in the municipal elections of May 2017.

Brussels, the capital of 500 million Europeans…

Things happen in Brussels! There’s always a buzz. Not just because it’s the capital of 500 million Europeans and political decisions are made here, but also because Brussels offers you an exciting cultural, artistic and social scene... at sensible prices. It still cultivates its talent as a metropolis on a human scale and its international reputation for friendliness and sociability. It makes itself accessible to all of its many visitors: business, culture, leisure and pleasure, those escaping for a break ... whatever its purpose, a stay in Brussels is something to remember.

No matter when you come, there's always something happening here; no matter how long you stay, there are several different ways to experience the city, each with some brilliant surprises in store.

As a world city, it shows a multi-cultural character that fits it like a glove: it’s both historic and modern, of the North and of the South, and proud of its differences which it intermixes unselfconsciously.

Its cuisine rises to any challenge, its fashion is paraded on the most highly-rated catwalks, its Art Nouveau treasures offer more than 200 opportunities to admire this flourishing style and its comic strip heroes have recently become Hollywood stars.

Our team of experts puts you in contact with the right venues, hotels, DMCs & other service suppliers, to help you build the perfect program for your customers…or for yourself. ☺

"En amont du fleuve"

Marion Hänsel Belgique, Pays-Bas, 2016 - Aventure-drame, 93 min.

A bord d'un petit rafiot, Homer et Joé, la cinquantaine, remontent un fleuve vers des chutes d'eau en Croatie. Jusqu'au décès, récent, de leur père, ils ignoraient l'existence l'un de l'autre. Pourtant, ils sont demi-frères. Sean, un baroudeur irlandais énigmatique et menteur, se joindra à eux. 

"En amont du fleuve", est une aventure psychologique où ces hommes pudiques et solitaires livreront certains de leurs secrets, de leurs espoirs peut-être et où les liens de sang, qu'ils le veuillent ou non, les uniront.
