Lambikstoempers Bierweekend

YES! It’s allowed again! On Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 august 2022 we are ready again to present you our Lambikstoempers Beer weekend. We are open respectively from 14h to midnight (on Saturday) and from 14h to 20h (on Sunday), at the beer center De Lambiek, Gemeenveldstraat 1 at 1652 Alsemberg (Beersel).

Again you will have the choice out of +100 of different beers, of which the main part are beers of spontaneous fermentation (going from non-carbonated lambic over Oude Geuze, to fruit lambic, Oude Kriek and so on). With this year a spotlight on: 100% Brussels beers!

Besides this you can enjoy tasty snacks, hopefully cosy on the sun terrace or not, while your children play on the bouncy castle or try out our colouring competition. And who knows, you might even win a nice prize in our big beer raffle!

The entrance is FREE!

Pictures: ‘Guess the barrel’ tasting

‘Barrel Aged’ is quite trendy in the beer world at the moment. We found out for you whether this really is an added value, on Saturday 11 June 2022 in room ‘Rainbow’ (Zennedal) in Buizingen, during our tasting ‘Guess the barrel’.

In a cozy setting we tasted 10 beers that have been aged in whiskey, port, calvados, red wine, sherry, genever or rum casks. Of course, as always, we tasted blind.

Also present: a reporter from Radio 2 Vlaams-Brabant, who made a nice report of our tasting for the Monday morning program ‘Start Je Dag’. And yes, even Don Bosco himself saw, heard and tasted(?) that it was – once again – good!

Pictures: Visiting St-Feuillien brewery

On Saturday 28th of May 2022, De Lambikstoempers paid another visit to Brasserie St-Feuillien in Le Rœulx. We had already been there once in 2007, but in the meantime a lot has changed and… improved in both camps!

Edwin Dedoncker, General Manager at Brasserie St-Feuillien S.A., welcomed us with pleasure and gave a short “exposé” in the “Grand Cru” room under the old brewery. This was followed by an extensive tour of the old brewery and the new one. And of course there was also time to taste, on the sun-drenched terrace of the brewery! You can clearly see from the photos below that it was – once again – in order…
