As Olivier Cautin, president of the association Brasseurs Indépendents des Alpes-Maritimes, says, drom now on, every year they will organize this festival between the eight breweries and “…all those who want to join us“.

The first edition of the festival in Nice will take place on 5 and 6 October in the city, respectively in the garden Albert 1er and the Théatre des Verdures.

The participants of the festival will be able to enjoy food thanks to the food trucks, and of course beer tasting. In addition to concerts to cheer the meeting.

It’s a great opportunity to demonstrate the local brewing potential. In fact, according to the president of the brewery association, the annual departmental production is close to 2000 hectoliters and growth is expected.
