De Lambikstoempers’ “specialties” of 2019

Our Beer weekend 2019 is closing in fast. And our list of beers is beginning to get its final shape…

Lambikstoempers Bierweekend 2019

We can think of several good reasons to come to our Beer weekend on 24-25 August 2019. We sure aren’t the biggest, but – according to our visitors – by far the most pleasant beer festival.

You can taste more than 100 different beers at your ease, in tasting glasses of 15cl. Indoors, in the Bezoekerscentrum ‘De Lambiek’ at Alsemberg. But also outdoors, on their large terrace, where there is also a boncy castle for the small. Because everyone is welcome, big and small.

“Spontaneous specialties”

Of course with us the beer lovers come first. And these will sure find what they want. Did you ever see such a big “spontaneous counter” with this many different Lambic beers, Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek from all producers of the Pajottenland?

And also this year there are some “specialties”, as we call our (brand) new and/or exclusively beers we make available at our festival. What would you think of a 4 Pajot Kriek, based on his own lambic, enriched with fresh Schaarbeek’s cherries? Or what about the Oud Beersel Olijvenblad foederlambiek (olive leave cask lambic), straight from the barrel?

Also Boon / Mikkeller Oude Geuze Vermouth is again at your disposal at the counter, next to Boon / Mikkeller Oude Geuze Goût Américan, De Cam Oude Geuze Editie Gooikoorts 2019, Hanssens V.S.O.R. (Very Special Old Red), Lindemans SummerBerry, Tilquin Oude Groseille Rouge, Mort Subite Schaarbeekse Oude Kriek, Horal Megablend 2019 , Boon Black Label 1st, 2nd én 3rd Edition and so on…

And last but not least, don’t forget our own Cuvée Lambikstoemper ! this year we celebrate our 20th anniversary as Lambikstoempers and so we have made a Cuvée Lambikstoemper 2019 at brewery Lindemans, which is officially introduced at our Beer weekend! At the festival you will also be able to buy a bottle (1 per person!). And we will also once again sell our Cuvée Lambikstoemper 2014 (1 bottle per person, limited stock), to (re)taste them both next to one another at home…

So again a good reason to come to our Beer weekend 2019! Members of the Lambikstoempers vzw even get a nice discount.

“Specialties” in focus

As we already mentionned, this year we are celebrating our 20th anniversary. And isn’t it the best way to do this with your favourite beers? Thats why our beers in focus are the 10 favorites of the Lambikstoempers’ board … Cheers! 😉

Even more “specialties”

Of course on our counter we have even much more special, new and/or exclusive beers gathered for you, something for everyone, in various beer styles and colors. An experimental blond beer with blood oranges, a dark triple, a non-sweet honey beer, a session porter, a blonde with moringa (whatthehellisthat?), a gose with lemon & salt, a quadrupel with coffee, a Chardonnay saison, an unfiltered pilsner, an Oud Bruin that was boiled for 16 hours (!) … you name it, we have it!

Of course you can alse have a bite to eat, thanks to the parents council (=PTA) of the primary school Huizingen. And finally our Beer tombola – full of nice beer prizes – each year is a succes you want to miss out on.

The entrance is free, so why hesitate? We are expecting you on Saturday 24 August from 14:00 to 00:00 and on Sunday 25 August from 14:00 to 20:00 at the Visitor’s center ‘De Lambiek’ at Alsemberg. Until than!

Pictures: Lambic Festival + Bombardment of Beersel 1489

On Saturday 30th of June and Sunday 1st of July 2018, the municipality of Beersel organised a historic evocation of the bombardment of the Castle of Beersel in 1489. You could go back to the Middle Ages to experience the world of knights, ladies, musicians and craftsmen during that period. A successful activity!

At the same time a real Lambic Festival took place at the parking lot of the castle, or a colorful mix of sun, lambic beers, music, sandwiches with “plattekaas” and so on … In short a successful party!

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.

Dag van de Oude Geuze 2015

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.

Dag van de Oude Geuze 2015

All beers are served in tasting glasses of 15 cl. This way you can taste more different beers.

Golden Lambikstoemper

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.

Wanne met Gouden Lambikstoemper

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!
