Our beer list 2018 takes shape!

Lambikstoempers Bierweekend 2018

Our Lambikstoempers Beer weekend 2018 will be here soon…

As usual we have a huge offer of spontaneous fermented beers: Lambic, Oude Geuze, Oude Kriek and other fruit Lambics of ALL Lambic brewers and blenders of the Pajottenland, the new players included (… like Den Herberg, Belgoo and Lambiek Fabriek).

Hey, at our festival this year you can even taste a Dutch Watergeus, 100% natural fermentation, from brewery Vandenbroek (from Midwolde, Groningen). And also Cuvée Lambikstoemper (from 2014), we stil have enough bottles to let you taste the evolution of ‘our’ Oude Geuze.

And … from brewery Boon we also have an absolute (Belgian) exclusivity the Mikkeller Oude Geuze on our counter, riped in vermout barrels, which gave it a very unique flavour. Absolutely worthwhile tasting!

Bierweekend Oude Geuze

Beer in the spotlight: Brussels on top!

Each year we also serve a selection of beers in the spotlight. This time we gathered some remarkable, less known and special beers of Brussels’ breweries: Brasserie de la Senne, En Stoemelings, L’Ermitage, L’Annexe, Brussels Beer Project, Beerstorming, No Science etc …

And not in the least is the rest of our beer offer: from low, high or mixed fermentation, from tiny to medium size Belgian breweries where the brewing of artisanal beer is in their blood, from the region or from a distant corner of our land. And yes, again this year there are some “special ones” ! What would you think of the brand new Goyck, a blond beer mixed with Lindemans Lambic? Or the exclusive Five A Day 2018 Limited Edition from brewery De Feniks, mixed with 60 year old Goossens Lambic? And for the daredevils we also have the new Crystalstick Experimental2 on ice. In short: for each his own!

Systematically we will reveal more beers.

Rendezvous on Saturday 25 August (from 14:00 to 00:00) and Sunday 26 August (from 14:00 to 20:00) in the Visitor’s Center ‘De Lambiek’ at Alsemberg.


Beer weekend 2018: praktical details

Pictures: Lambic Festival + Bombardment of Beersel 1489

On Saturday 30th of June and Sunday 1st of July 2018, the municipality of Beersel organised a historic evocation of the bombardment of the Castle of Beersel in 1489. You could go back to the Middle Ages to experience the world of knights, ladies, musicians and craftsmen during that period. A successful activity!

At the same time a real Lambic Festival took place at the parking lot of the castle, or a colorful mix of sun, lambic beers, music, sandwiches with “plattekaas” and so on … In short a successful party!

Pictures: visit De Feniks & D’Oude Maalderij

On Saturday 23th of June 2018 we went to West Flanders with a small delegation of Lambikstoempers. First we got a tour at De Feniks brewery (Heule) with a complete explanation in detail about how the different beers are brewed (ingredients and brewing methods), with extra attention for the beers ripened on wood and a guided degustation.

Afterwards we went to D’Oude Maalderij (Izegem), for some more tasting – to finish it off – and a blitz visit to the brewery there. In short: another great activity to frame!
