De Lambikstoempers vzw and the Streekproducten Centrum Halle invite you at their
12th Day of the Oude Geuze
on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November 2017 in the Streekproducten Centrum Halle
It is already the 12th time we collaborate, so this is becoming a tradition. As a annual habit we organise a tasting with regional products near the year end, also the ideal occasion to get ideas for a gift for the year end.
This year we invited 2 guests at the Streekproducten Centrum:
- Sven Deman of WHERE BEER MEETS CHOCOLATE specialised in combining of chocolat & beer: during this open door you can taste beer and chocolat. This results in a surprizing blend of 2 different products.
- Johan Pevernagie of MATERIA GIN will get the visitors acquainted with his 4 tastes of different gins and if needed will give the explanation about the combinations with different tonics.
- The regional products produced in-house can also be tasted of course. New this year is a paté made of Oude Geuze & Kriek 3 Fonteinen.
12th Day of the Oude Geuze

Saturday from 10.00 h to 18.00 h and Sunday from 14.00 h to 18.00 h.
Lasr year more than 650 interested people, among whitch a great number of foreigners, found their way to the Streekproducten Centrum to (re)discover the different tastes of the Lambic beers!
Also this year we provide an extensive variety of beers of spontaneous fermentation to taste.

We only serve, to joy of a horde of beer lovers, the real lambic beers. Only those that are made with 100% lambic to make a OUDE GEUZE & OUDE KRIEK and with the yeast in the air of the Valley of the Senne. We are really proud to offer you in one location the full assortment of the 12 Lambic brewers and Geuze Blenders still left and a new one from the region.
Also this year the visitors get the chance to taste a real Lambic, the base brew of the geuze. We provide three Lambics, directly from the wooden casks of the local lambic brewers.
Besides Lambic we also serve Oude Geuze, Oude Kriek, Faro, Raspberry beer, … and two beers that actually don’t belong in this assortment: our own Servais beer, a top fermented beer brewed in the occasion of the year of Servais, a festival beer with a low alcohol by volume of 6,5%. And the high alcohol variant, Servais Tripel. Also coffee and soft drinks are available.
All beers are served in tasting glasses of 15 cl. This way you can taste more different beers.

Every year the Lambikstoempers vzw want to put an extra focus on the Lambic beers by awarding the Golden Lambikstoemper.
The first Golden Lambikstoemper in 2010 went to De Heeren van Liedekercke, the second to Kaf’eko in Halle, the third to Boelekewis in Huizingen, the forth to De Zwaan in Dworp, the fifth to ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske in Antwerp, the sixth, exeptionally to the Streekproducten Centrum in Halle and last year the managers of ’t Parlement received their Gouden Lambikstoemper.
Based on a by now extensive list of horeca busisnisses and a number of criteria and after an anonimous on site visit De Lambikstoempers vzw will award the Golden Lambikstoemper for the eighth time on Sunday 26 November 2017 at 15.00 uur to a horeca business that, according to us, gave a special attention to the Lambic beers in 2017.
The Golden Lambikstoemper is an artful certificate with some poetry made by Leo Lintermans! By the way every one can suggest Horeca businesses through our website.
But first of all come and taste our Pajottenland’ pride, on Saturday 25 (10h-18h) and Sunday 26 November 2017 (14h-18h) at the Streekproducten Centrum Halle!
