On Saturday 8 April 2023, The Lambikstoempers visited the new microbrewery within Grimbergen Abbey.
Karel Stautemas, subprior and abbey brewer, gave us an insight into abbey life. We strolled through the abbey garden, discovered the magical story of the well and the hop field, were given explanations in the microbrewery and were allowed to taste various beers, including some straight from the tank. Hallelujah!
Brewing beer is an art anyway. On Friday 10 March 2023, De Lambikstoempers will serve some extra artistic beers in room ‘Regenboog’ (Zennedal) in 1501 Buizingen.
The link between beer and an 1881 painting by Edouard Manet, the 1986 sculpture ‘Woman and Man’ by José Vermeersch or a book set in the first half of the 17th century, written by Nikolai Gogol? You found out all about it at this tasting!
We tasted, discussed, judged… and once again practised the Art of Tasting! And those who did not attend were once again wrong. 😛
