Have you heard about Haemmer brand for watches from Germany?
Oversized-Design, lifestyle and authenticity, and the left positioned crown are the key points in the products and the product range strategy. Consistent quality features such as a continuous laser-engraved serial number, 100 meters waterproof, screw-housing floors and crowns emphasize the quality of the entire collection.Skin-friendly calf leather bracelets with stainless steel applications, folding, (double buckle in the women's models) that give the collection its own special charm and character.Im in love with these watches, white, red, blue, brown.... i cant decide which one is my favorite color!

Zythos Bier Fest (ZBF) moves to Leuven in 2012

(Photo, above: Els de Mûelenaere, wife of Kris Herteleer
of De Dolle Brouwers, with a "Verse Vis" at the 2011 ZBF.)

The end of an era is at hand, and the beginning of
another is just over a year away.

The Zythos Bier Festival (ZBF) which is the closest thing
that Belgium has to a "national" beer fest, has seen its last
show in St. Niklaas, an East Flanders city located between
Antwerp and Ghent.

(Photo, above: Yvan de Baets of Brasserie de la Senne
at ZBF 2011, with a glass of Taras Boulba.)

(Photo, above: Ann-Catherine Dilewyns and her father,
Vincent of Brouwerij Dilewyns. They are opening a new
brewery in May, and their beers will be headed to the
USA later this year.)

My good friend Carl Kins (who is a well-respected member
of the H.O.P. club in Kortrijk, a Zythos affiliated club that
organizes the Karakterbier fest in Vichte every year) told me
the following this morning:

(Photo, above: Carl Kins pouring his SloCK beer,
brewed at De Graal in Brakel, East Flanders.)

"The Stadfeestzaal of St-Niklaas, or City Festival Hall, is being
torn down in the next few weeks. So, another venue had to be
found for the ZBF."

(Photo, above: the Oud Beersel booth at the
2007 ZBF.)

The new location will be the Brabanthal ("Brabant Hall")
located 4 km from the center of the historic city of
Leuven in Flemish Brabant. Carl added:

"The Brabanthal is more than double the size of the St Niklaas-hall,
allowing expansion, i.e. every brewer willing to participate will be
able to. And, contrary to this year, no people will need to be queuing
(waiting) on the outside any longer."

The fest will be held on the last full weekend of April every year for
the next five years, at least. So it is April 28-29 for 2012. See

This new location and new date leads to a number of possibilities.
The Toer de Geuze, an open house at nine of Belgium's lambic
producers, is organized every other (odd-numbered) year,
on the same weekend. So, in 2013, once could do the ZBF on
Saturday April 27, and the Tour de Geuze on Sunday April 28th.
That, friends, would be a great weekend!

Additionally, Leuven has far more beery delights than St-Niklaas.
In fact, it's not even close. St-Niklaas has little in the way of
Belgian specialty cafes and no breweries, and Leuven has many.

If it's one I know for sure, it is that my good friends in the
De Leuvense Biertherapeuten (LBT) which is one of the
very active and highly thought of Zythos-affiliated beer appreciation
clubs in the country, will put on a show.

(Photo, above: three of the board of the LBT, who will
likely play a major part in ZBF Leuven: from top left,
Steven Vermoere; Ann Frankie, lower left; Luc Smekens,
top right; and yours truly, bottom right.
Photo taken at Cafe Universum in 2003.)

Luc Smekens and Steven Vermoere are on the board of the LBT
and have been working each ZBF since the first in 2004. I first met
them when they were working at the old 24 Hours of Belgian Special
Beer in 1997 in Antwerp. At that point, I wasn't even a beer writer

I had brought with me a number of special American brews to share,
and hence made some new friends. Got that? If you want to make
some friends in Belgium, bring some great local beers to share!

(Photo, above: Leuven's 15th century town hall.)

Luc and Steven took me on a couple of epic pub crawls of Leuven
in the past, so I know that cafes like Blauwe Kater, Vliegend
Varken and Taverne Still Waters will see crowds of thirsty beer
lovers next April.

(Photo, above: brewer Marc Knops (far right) and
several other staff of Huisbrouwerij Domus in
Leuven celebrate the release of a new beer in 2009.)

No doubt the Domus brewpub/cafe will as well, as Marc Knops
(who also brews at Achel, the Trappist Abbey and brewery in
Limburg) has been cranking out some very nice beers there the
last few years. I visited in April, 2009. Domus also has good,
reasonably priced food as well as a number of other Belgian
beers. Get there.

(Photo, above: Huisbrouwerij Domus in Leuven.)

Leuven is also very easy to get to from Brussels or Mechelen. While I
might opt to stay in this beautiful medieval city of 35,000+ students,
you could as easily stay the night in the E.U. capital or the home of
Brouwerij Het Anker, Mechelen. Both are about 20 minutes by direct

(Photo, above: me at the 2007 ZBF with a couple of
beer lovers from California. Yes, I realize the tasting
glass I am holding says 2004, however old glasses are
always still in use at ZBF alongside glasses from the
present year.)

(Photo, above: Beer writer Tim Webb talking to brewer
Benoît Johnen of Brasserie Grain d' Orge at the 2007 ZBF.
I visited the Liege province brewery for a second time,
at their new location, earlier this month.)

I attended the ZBF in 2004, 2007, and in 2011. I'm happy I was able to
visit this excellent fest for its last engagement in St. Niklaas, with it's
selection of over 250 different beers from 60 breweries.

I look forward as much to visiting Belgium and Leuven in the Spring,
with its warmer weather, historic sites and beery culture.

I also attended the forerunner of the ZBF, The Objectieve
Bierproevers (OBP) "De 24 Uur van Het Belgisch Speciaal Bier"
fest some five times. The first three times I went were at
Antwerp's Stadfeestzal, which burned down in December, 2000.
The final two 24 Hours beer fests were put on at Antwerp's
Oude Beurs, the former commodities exchange.

When the OBP closed up as a legal organization after the 2002 event,
the ZBF was formed, and took up its role as Belgium's premier beer
promotion and protection organization. It has done superbly well,
and should continue to do so, under the direction of current
president Jan Rumes and the Zythos staff.

(Photo, above: Glenn Castelein and Davy Spiessens at the
2007 ZBF.)

How this will affect the Alvinne Craft Beer Festival (ACBF) is unclear
at the moment. Whether Davy, Glenn and Marc will follow suit and
change their fest to the same weekend as ZBF or stay in March is
something they will have to ponder over, and they are incredibly
busy building a new brewery.

(UPDATE: as you can read in the comment below, Glenn
confirms ACBF will remain in March, on Saturday
March 3 and Sunday March 4. So one could do the
Nacht van de Grote Dorst (Night of the Great Thirst)
at In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst on Friday
March 2, then ACBF the Saturday and Sunday.
Soooo many tough choices for the beer lover.)

Better start looking for a spare beer-processing
organ now...just in case.

Say it right....

This is my outfit for the Replay fashion show, where i was on Thursday night with Jelena. We saw their new collection, lots of skirts, floral prints, washed&destroyed denim, hats, oversized t-shirts etc...I dont have any photo from the show, because of the light but i promise, i will give my best next time. I wore my long skirt from Zara as a dress, with plaid shirt, Replay boots, and not so many accessories. How do you like it? :)
U četvrtak uveče je održana Replay revija, na kojoj su prikazani modeli za proleće/leto 2011, cvetni dezeni, šeširi, kratki šortcevi, isprani džins, inspiracija koja se bazira na bojama neba, zemlje i kanjona države Arizona predstavljaju sam srž kolekcije. Napravila sam nekoliko snimaka u toku revije, koji nisu baš najbolji zbog moje nemirne ruke, ali smo Jelena i ja zato uživale u dobroj muzici i novim modelima koji se već mogu naći u radnjama. :)  Obukla sam moju omiljenu dugu suknju iz Zare, koju  nosim na nekoliko načina a ovo je jedan od njih. :) Kako vam se dopada?

After we made some photos for Jelena's blog, we went to press cocktail to pick up our pass for Belgrade Fashion Week. Hope that we will see great collections! I wore my new scarf with giraffes from New Yorker, and sneakers with leopard pattern, and i love how they look like together! :)
Nakon što smo završile kafenisanje i pripremanje specijalnog posta za Jelenin blog, otišle smo na Kalemgdansku terasu da uzmemo naše propusnice za BFW, i sada nam ostaje da vidimo sve te nove kolekcije! :)
Žirafe su po prvi put ugledale fotoaparat, a slagale su se i više nego odlično sa leopardom...tako da će se družiti često! ;)
p.s. moram još da dodam da nam je Jelena juče blistala! :)

When i saw this photo  for the first time, i feel in love in perfect combination of these two colors!So i needed to recreate something similar with my pashmina scarves!How do you like it? Adore those h&m bracelets, i know that i will wear them a lot! You should find some similar and make your own combo for the upcoming sunny days!
Da li se sećate ove fotografije ? Kada sam je ugledala po prvi put, bila sam i više nego oduševljena kombinacijom boja, te sam morala nešto slično da izvedem! Birkin je odavno na spisku, a dok nekim čudom ne stigne, odlično su poslužile i pašmine! ;) Za ovaj recept vam je potrebno: parče neba, 1/2 kg limetedžak veštačkog krzna, lak za nokte koji doziva sunce , čizme koje volite najviše na svetu i nakit koji kao začin dodajete na kraju! Spremne?! ;)
