Our Mission:
Get together with peers and learn from each other in a friendly, homely atmosphere.

BREWT is a yearly weekend of testing fun, in which up to 25 testers meet, give talks, workshops, play puzzle games and meaningful discussions.

It’s a Peer Conference.
Everyone has an equal voice and an equal stake.
Each attendee prepares an Experience Report before attending and every year we ask several people to present.

The aim is to learn and to get to know each other‘s hardships and solutions.
We’re here to help and support but also to challenge and help you grow.

Panel 2


Going to a peer conference is a wonderful thing. You meet lovely and interesting people, learn tons of new things, reinforce your own ideas and go home with enough energy to change the world.


BREWT Peerconf 1 will be no different. Yet it will be, because there’ll be a distinct Belgian touch of surrealism, self-mockery, outstanding cuisine, delicious chocolate and exceptional beer.
At the heart of all this stands a group of testers with love for their craft and a hunger to learn from each other.

As organisers, we’re proud of seeing this event take shape.

Location: BREWT 1 will be hosted at the RedLoft. It’s a nice, peaceful, stylish room close to the ancient city center of Ghent. The owners are warm people who we trust to cater to our every need. We realize the website is in Dutch, but trust you can find some pictures.

Planning: The Peer Conference itself starts on Saturday the 9th of December at 9:00. Breakfast, lunch and breaks are included. The event ends at 18:00 at which we’ll offer some of our Belgian pride: the outrageously exclusive Westvleteren 12 beer… and other drinks. However, you are welcome from Friday evening onward until Sunday evening. We have planned activities for both nights, such as a city guided tour by one of our very own.


AST Grant: We are happy to share with you that The Association for Software Testing has kindly offered us a grant (through their Grant Program) to support our first BREWT Peer Conference.


Flixbus vouchers: To those that are looking at transportation costs and would consider using the Flixbus service to Ghent we offer quite a few vouchers to reduce the price even further. (especially interesting for Londoners/UK-ers as the tunnel cost becomes severly lower). These vouchers were earned during a bughunt by the good testers of one of our BREWT meetups.

To summarize, we’re humbled by the response we have gotten to our call for participation.

We know it is not easy nor evident to take the weekend off and spend it with a couple of crazy Belgian testers. We admit it: we are crazy… for you and testing. And to make this event fun, full of learning and a success, we are willing to go through lengths.
