About us

The start of De Lambikstoempers vzw

The beer taster association De Lambikstoempers have been set up in the year 99 of the previous century by a couple beer lovers from the region of Halle in the Pajottenland. At that time on the national plan, however, the vzw Objective Beer Tasters (OBP) – meanwhile ceased to exist – existed , who, beside its direct members, united local associations.

In the heart of the Pajottenland there was however no regional beer taster association active. De Lambikstoempers filled up this vacuum.

The objectives of De Lambikstoempers vzw

The Lambikstoempers are present a local association of the new national beer taster association Zythos vzw. In the first place we have the same objectives of Zythos. In official words this is: the conservation and promotion of Belgian beer culture by:

  • organising and/or stimulating projects, of all kinds, which promote the Belgian beers and their tastes.
  • accusing irregularities to the consumer.
  • the striving towards recognition of Belgian beer as a component of our culture, brewery tradition, life style and gastronomy.

In other words: By means of tastings, topic evenings, brewery visits, trips and everything that has even slightly to do with beer, in a loose and pleasant, but especially objective manner take a closer look and discuss the several aspects of the beer. It goes without saying that we, seen our given region, have a special attention on the lambic beer (Oude Geuze, Oude Kriek, Faro …) without excluding other kinds and styles of beers.
