FLANDERS FIELDS: The Great War Centenary 2014-2018

In 2014 it will be 100 years since the First World War started. WWI raged through large parts of the province of West-Flanders. This war came at an enormous cost in human lives and left an everlasting scar on the landscape of Flanders Fields. The project ‘The Great War Centenary’ was put up to commemorate these events in a fitting way. Westtoer and the province of West-Flanders want to make both adults and youngsters aware of the theme ‘no more war’.

Important changes to BELGIAN BEER JOURNAL

Dear Belgian Beer Journal reader:

As you may have noticed, our website has been trimmed down a bit- as evidenced by the missing link buttons in the link bar above. Below is a list of the following changes:

1. THE CUISINE PAGES HAVE BEEN REMOVED. We felt that the cuisine sections of our website weren’t getting as near as much attention as our beer review pages are. We are focusing our attention to beer. There are already several food review websites and blogs on the net today. The truth is, we posted VERY FEW food recipe articles in the past 10 months; there simply hasn’t been enough time to include food articles when writing about Belgian beer is already very time consuming.

2. THE EVENTS PAGE HAS BEEN CONDENSED. Instead of creating multiple event pages, we decided to streamline all events on one page. This makes it much easier for our readers to find event listings, dates, etc.

3. THE PLACES PAGE HAS BEEN CONDENSED. Similar reason as the EVENTS PAGE change.

4. THE PHOTOS PAGE HAS BEEN REMOVED. All pictures will be on reviews or posts.

5. THE MEDIA PAGE (NEWS AND VIDEOS) HAS BEEN REMOVED- FOR NOW. Any newsworthy postings will simply be made at the home page . Our video page will return when we start producing video beer reviews. Videos will be sometime in the future.

6. THE SHOP PAGE HAS BEEN REMOVED- FOR NOW. Eventually, we are looking to have an online store available for shoppers to purchase Belgian Beer Journal merchandise- glassware, etc. That’s one of our goals for the future.

7. THE TRAVEL PAGE HAS BEEN REMOVED- FOR NOW. We are seeking to collaborate with travel companies that focus on travelling to Belgium- brewery tours, etc. This is another goal in the future.

We made these changes to make room for an exciting change to Belgian Beer Journal… more about that will be announced later this week! Stay tuned.

op uw gezondheid!
à votre santé!

The festival’s establishment dates to a law of 27 May 1890 and commemorates an event on 21 July 1831 in which Leopold of Saxe-Cobourg swore allegiance to the new Belgian constitution, thus becoming the first “King of the Belgians“.
