There's a rumour every guest will be offered a free beer from a specialist Belgian Beer Company. It's not even a rumour, it's just something that's happening - here's the info: an original rediscovered: Created in association with the Abbey of the Order of Premontre in Belgium, Heverlee is inspired by the beers first brewed by the monks in medieval times. Living by the abbey motto, Ne Quid Nimis (life in balance), Heverlee delivers a perfectly balanced taste in its refreshing Belgian Pils style beer. One has your name on it.
