Pictures: Tasting Whisky & Beer

What do beer and whisky have in common? Zythologist Yannick de Cocquéau explained us the differences and similarities between beer and whiskey on Friday 21th of September 2018.

And of course we tasted beer – whether or not enriched with (an infusion of) whisky – and whisky. Yes, we even blended it ourselves!

In short: another separate but very successful / pleasant / interesting test evening! 😉

On Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 August 2018 our Lambikstoemper Beer weekend takes place – meantime for the 19th time! –, in the Visitor’s Center ‘De Lambiek’ at Alsemberg.

And yes, that same weekend there are certainly still other interesting and tempting (beer)events to go to, so it will be  a matter of combining or choosing. So we just want to lend you a hand with the latter.  😉

Why? That’s why!

1. +100 beers

At our Beer weekend you will find more than 100 different beers, among which a wide assortment of spontaneous fermented ones: Lambic, (Oude) Geuze and (Oude) Kriek. But also a wide range of top/bottom/mixed fermented beers, From all over the land, but this year especially: Brussels’ beers in the picture! >> Check our full Beer list 2018

3. FREE!

With us the entrance is totally free. Also the ambiance, with us you receive – inside or on the large terrace outside – is totally for free. And the visitor’s center ‘De Lambiek’ is fully free to visit at this occasion. Further on we have very democratic prices, for the drinks … and the food.

4. Hunger?

What is there to eat this year? A tasty sandwich with white cheese & radishes/spring-onions (ideal with our tasty Oude Geuze/Kriek!), a portion of cheese/salami/mixed – provided by the Parent council of the primary school Huizingen – or a sandwich with (beer!) marinated warm ham from Benny’s Pigdelicious. In short: all of it really nice.  😛

5. Child friendly

With us everyone is welcome, even the smallest ones. While you are tasting, your children can bring out the artist in them at our big coloring contest or enjoy themselves on the BumpFun jumping castle. For the youngest (and the designated drivers) we also have artisanal fruit juice and water.

6. Win!

Finally you don’t have to go home empty handed. Meanwhile our Beer raffle is legendary. For a small contribution you may win very nice beer prices. (Almost) everyone wins! 😉
