Silly Saturday- Ashley’s Belgian Beer Festival

Saturday, February 18th saw more fun activities during Silly Saturday, as Ashley’s Belgian Beer Festival wound down. The day had fun activities planned, and the featured beers were from the Brasserie de Silly in the Wallonia region of Belgium.

The back banquet room was filled with classic pub games that Ashley’s owners had procured from around the world. Patrons were free the wander back into to the room and test their luck at many of these unique and challenging games. 

Ring The Bull

Shove Ha’penny

Table Skittles

Pub Quotis

Dutch Shuffleboard

The games were fun for both adults and children alike. They were also more challenging than they looked!

 Two of the other fun activites included Beiro, which was much like Bingo, except that the squares were filled with different kinds of Belgian beers, and Pub Trivia, featuring questions that were beer related. 

Being unable to attend Sunday, I was glad to be able to get a look at the delicious Belgian waffles they would be serving Sunday at the Festival’s final event.

As with all the events of the Belgian Beer Festival, Silly Saturday was a success, not only for the fun events, but also for the chance to sit and enjoy good food & top quality Belgian beers, but also to be able to share in the comradery that comes from people gathering to celebrate their love of good beer. I can’t wait to see what they do for next year’s festival.
