Lentebock Festival Utrecht


Upcoming weekend the fifth edition of the Lentebock Festival will be held at the ‘Ledig Erf’ in Utrecht. Three days long you can try over twenty different kinds of Lentebock beers and rank them. Based on the rankings the winner will be chosen, this beer can be called the best Lentebock beer of the year.

New setting

Last year, the residents who live near the ‘Ledig Erf’ complained about the festival being too big for the festival grounds, so this year there has been chosen for a new setting. The festival grounds will be fenced and won’t be accessible for bicycles. Besides that, only a limited number of visitors will be allowed. Beer lovers should better be on time to avoid disappointments.


During the festival you can taste over twenty different kinds of beer, all these beers can be rated on a special made assessment form. As visitor you can decide which and how many beers you want to rate. By handing in your assessment form you have the chance to win a Lentebock price package. The beer with the highest ranking will earn the title ‘Topbock’. Last year this title was earned by ‘Kompaan Lente’ from ‘Kompaan’. The ‘Jopen Lentebock’ of ‘Jopen Brouwerij’ became second and ‘Brouwerij Maximus’ ended third with their ‘Maximus Violante’.

Beer tasting

Also this year there will be a beer tasting. This will be presented by Ruud Korteschiel and ‘de Mannen van het Fust’. You will taste five different bock beers and rate them. Also, there will be more explained about the different bock beers, brewing processes and the breweries.
