De Lambikstoempers annul events, but …

2020 should have been a busy year for De Lambikstoempers vzw, but sadly the Covid-19 coronovirus decided otherwise.

After a thourough meting and keeping the current situation in mind, the board of De Lambikstoempers vzw decided to annul all planed events until the end of August.

These events are tasting of Fruit beers, the “Bezetting van ’t Parlement” (occupation of ‘t Parlement), the visits to the Micro brewery De Backer and brewery Heilig Hart, the tasting of Stout beers, the Yearly diner and … our Beer weekend!

No Lambikstoempers Beer weekend 2020

The biggest event, the two day lasting Beer weekend that since a few years now took place at De Lambiek in Alsemberg and received visits of hundreds beer lovers from the whole world over, will no longer take place in 2020 despite of the preparations we already performed.

But for that weekend – 29 & 30 August 2020 – (and of course also all the other days) De Lambikstoempers vzw calls upon you all to go to your favourite horeca business in your neighbourhood to taste (at least) one delicious regional beer.

To everyone’s health and to support our local horeca that can use your support really bad!

Do it for yourselve, De Lambikstoempers, our Belgian beer culture, but especially for the Horeca.

Pictures: visit De Graal brewery

On Saturday 22th of February 2020, De Lambikstoempers visited De Graal brewery, a still young, artisanal, yet automated brewery located in Brakel, in the heart of the Flemish Ardennes.

We were warmly received, received an extensive tour with an answer to all our questions and of course also tasted their beers. Another successful visit!

Pictures: visit Anders! brewery

In 2014, De Lambikstoempers already visited Anders! brewery. But in the meantime this brewery grew enormously, was left and a new (and even larger) branch was built … just across the street.

So it was high time to take another look, we thought. And so we went to Anders! on Saturday 25th of January 2020 where Nicolas Volders, commercial manager, showed us around the malt storage, the lab, the raw materials room, the brewing room, the fermentation tanks, the filling line … and let us taste some of the beers they made. In short: it was another top visit!
