Belgium’s lambic brewers pull out all the stops for HORAL’s yearly celebration of spontaneous fermentation. Grab one of the charter bus tickets to avoid driving and make the rounds of Lindemann’s, Boon, Oud Beersel, Tilquin, and the like. Or stray off the tour for special offerings at 3 Fonteinen and Cantillon. Just make sure to take an extra suitcase for the special bottle releases. —JB
