This new six day Tour focuses on the Second World War in Antwerp Province in September 1944 on both the liberation of Belgium and of course, beer. We'll stay at Hotel Corbie in Geel which was the centre of the Battle of Geel which lasted from 8-23 September 1944. This was a little known fight for the canal bridgeheads which was subsumed within the more famous Operation Market Garden. Siobhan McGinn (Mrs Podge) is your guide to all things historical and knows her way round a Belgian beer or two. We'll be spending a day in Antwerp city and have a Dubbel or Tripel (or both) at the Westmalle Trappist Brewery Tap and this Tour will include loads of other great battlefield and beer visits. Come and join us. Read more.
