I was in Gent during the week attending the 4th Young Scientists Symposium on Malting, Brewing & Distilling, and I had some great fun. There were lots of interesting lectures and I met lots of interesting people. I’ll post some thoughts about the current trends in brewing research in a later post. We also visited Rodenbach brewery, where brewmaster Rudi Ghequire guided us around and was kind enough to invite us to dinner (thank you!). I will also post some pictures and notes I took during the tour in a later post. While in Gent, I also had time for a quick visit to De Hopduvel, where I found some real gems:
All in all, a really nice trip!
