Dear thirsty Hashers,
Brewskival is said to be Sweden's best beer festival, but you shouldn't believe what you hear - drinking is believing!
A few of us have already bought tickets, but we are hoping for company! The preluminary plan is:
Thursday 10 Aug
- Train to Helsingborg
- The Skåne Experience of "tura", i.e. take a booze cruise on the ferry between Helsingborg and Helsingör - back and forth, back and forth, whilst drinking (and eating)!
- Pub crawl in the evening
Friday 11 Aug
- Hashing in the morning
- Brewskival is open 13-21. Ticket price 399 kr - it's a good idea to buy it fairly soon, so they don't run out. (It's of course also possible to travel down on Friday morning)
Saturday 12 Aug
- Visit the island of Ven, which is a 1-hour ferry ride away. And - it has a whisky destilleri that has to be explored! After all, there is more than beer to quench our thirst!
Sunday 13 Aug
- Brewskival is open 13-17. Free entrance - the goal is to finish all the beer that's left! You pay only for beer tickets.
- Train back north
Info and tickets here:
Friday 11 Aug Entry 1pm-9pm You will receive 1 beer glass and also free entrance on the Sunday 12-4pm (please bring a glass from the previous days). No refunds of tokens or tickets. Please make sure that you choose the correct day; the date cannot be changed after purchase.
I suggest booking rooms with free cancellation at the H5 Hotel. It's very central and very reasonably priced (albeit with no breakfast room at the hotel). I haven't staid there myself, but my brother has, and he says it's very good value for money compared to other central hotels in Helsingborg in the summer.
If you do plan to go, please let me know that you're interested, so I have a rough idea of numbers. I also suggest booking festival ticket and hotel room asap. I'll find out more about Ven, and also when the train tickets are up for grabs.
On On to Helsingborg!
