About The Event


CEMS Club Rotterdam Presents


Beer Cantus 

Sign-up before Sunday 17 November 23:59 through 


*** Event reserved for CEMS students*** 

Καλώς ήρθατε κυρίες και κύριοι, είστε έτοιμοι να πιείτε… πολύ? 

That’s Greek for ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to drink… a lot? The ancient Greeks have already performed this age old tradition; a beer cantus. 

Soon, you’ll be able to experience this amazing gathering in person. No matter if you are a newbie or a full blown cantus veteran, you don’t want to miss this occasion. On the 7th of December we want to come together and celebrate this incredible party, fraternity style. 

What happens during a beer cantus? 

There are songs played, which everybody can sing along to. After each song, everybody gets to embrace the glory of a liquid golden piece of heaven called beer. Traditionally, a beer cantus starts with the first (two) couplets of the national anthem, the Wilhelmus. Afterwards, Trink Trink Brüderlein Trink is played, which is the drinking song. Every time after the drinking song people are supposed to chug their beer. Then, a song is played, everybody sings along, and after this song the drinking song is played. There are certain rules to a beer cantus, and when breached people will get punished.


On a serious note, this can be a very intense event and we are concerned about your health, so if you have a medical condition, such as epilepsy, a heart condition or anything else, please let us know, so we can check if it is safe for you to attend. In addition, since it will be a traditional Dutch beer cantus, there will be a lot of beer, so please keep that in mind. We don’t want any of you to feel uncomfortable. It is also important that you eat before, as you do NOT want to drink on an empty stomach and there will not be any food available.
