At the request of Frank Boon himself, De Lambikstoempers visited the Boon brewery in Lembeek on Saturday 18th of September 2021. We were guided by the brewer himself in the old and the new brewery, through the hall with gullies, the barrel warehouses (also those on the right bank of the Senne, where there are dozens of foeders, each with a capacity of about 27,000 liters of lambic!), the cooperage, and so on.
Sometimes playful, sometimes profound! And of course we tasted, from very young lambic to … Vat 31 (and something in between). An unusual but wonderful visit which we thoroughly enjoyed!
Frank Boon appointed honorary member of De Lambikstoempers vzw
And that the collaboration between the Boon brewery and De Lambikstoempers vzw is quite unique, is proven by the fact that our chairman was able to appoint Frank at the end of the tour as … “Honorary member of De Lambikstoempers vzw”. Rightly so and from the heart… Congratulations!
