16-17/10/2021: Day(s) of the Old Gueuze 2021

De Lambikstoempers vzw and Streekproducten Centrum Halle invite you to their …

Dag van de Oude Geuze 2021


This fifteenth edition will take place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of October 2021, the closing weekend of the “Month of Lambic”, in the parking lot of the Streekproducten Centrum, Poststraat 3A in 1500 Halle, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

At the last edition in 2019, more than 650 interested parties, including a large number of foreigners, found their way to the Streekproducten Centrum to (re)discover the various flavors of lambic beers!

Once again, we will provide an extensive sample of spontaneous fermentation beers. Beers from the following breweries / blenders can be tasted:

  • Angerik (Dilbeek)
  • Boerenerf (Huizingen)
  • Boon (Lembeek)
  • Cantillon (Anderlecht)
  • De Cam (Gooik)
  • Den Herberg (Buizingen)
  • De Troch (Wambeek)
  • Eylenbosch (Kobbegem)
  • 3 Fonteinen (Beersel)
  • Girardin (Sint-Ulriks-Kapelle)
  • Hanssens (Dworp)
  • Lambiek Fabriek (Ruisbroek)
  • Lindemans (Vlezenbeek)
  • Mort Subite (Kobbegem)
  • Oud Beersel (Beersel)
  • Sako (Bogaarden)
  • Tilquin (Rebecq)
  • Timmermans (Itterbeek)

To the delight of many beer lovers, we only serve the real lambic beers. Namely this one where 100% lambic is still used to obtain OLD GUEUZE & OLD KRIEK and where use is made of the yeast cells that can be found in the air of the Zenne valley. We are therefore proud that we can offer a complete overview of the range of the remaining lambic breweries and blenders in the region at one location.


This year, visitors will again have the opportunity to taste a real lambic, the basic brew of Gueuze. We provide three lambics, supplied directly from the wooden barrels of the local lambic brewers.

In addition to the lambic, we also serve gueuze, kriek and various fruit lambic beers… The blond beer Servais (top fermentation, 5.5% alc. vol.) and still & sparkling water will also be available.

All beers are sold in 15 cl tasting glasses. This should make it possible to taste several of these beers.

Entrance to the Day(s) of the Old Gueuze is FREE.

Firsts & tasters

As on previous editions, you can taste a number of exclusive beers and firsts on the Day(s) of the Old Gueuze. For example, you can taste the two home-brewed lambics from Angerik (Dilbeek), the latest innovations from Lambiek Fabriek and Tilquin (among others), our own Cuvée Lambikstoemper 2014 and 2019, Mikkeller Oude Geuze Vermouth, the Bierpallieters Fond Geuze and so on.

This year, we chose to put ‘New Old Gueuze’ in the spotlight for our “tasting board”, which has become traditional. We serve Oude Geuze Den Herberg, HORAL Megablend 2021, Oude Geuze Eylenbosch, Oude Geuze Bord-Elle and Boon Black Label n°6 on one plate. This tasting board has been specially designed to enable the visitor to taste 5 glasses at the same time and thus embark on a journey through a fascinating taste landscape.


Golden Lambikstoemper Award 2021

De Lambikstoempers vzw wants to put the lambic beers in the spotlight every year by awarding the Golden Lambikstoemper Award.

On the basis of an impressive list of catering establishments and a number of criteria (which were drawn up after many hours of discussions) and after an anonymous site visit to the proposed businesses, De Lambikstoempers vzw, in the presence of the Deputy of the province of Flemish Brabant Gunther Coppens, on Sunday 17th of October 2021 at 2.30 pm, will award its Golden Lambikstoemper Award for the twelfth time to the catering business that, in their view, has paid the most attention to lambic beers in 2021.

The Golden Lambikstoemper Award is an artistic charter with some poetry drawn up by Ludo Buggenhout.

By the way, anyone can continuously propose catering businesses via our website.

Certainly do! And… we look forward to seeing you on Saturday 16th and/or Sunday 17th of October on our Day(s) of the Old Gueuze 2021 in the parking lot of the Streekproducten Centrum (Halle).

This activity is part of the Month of Lambic, an organization of Toerisme Vlaams-Brabant.

Pictures: Tasting “New Old Gueuze”

“It was so nice that we could go again!” On Friday 25 June 2021 De Lambikstoempers vzw organized after a long time – corona, you know? – another (blind)tasting. And what kind!

In the upper room of Streekproducten Centrum (Halle), at a safe distance from each other, we tasted “New Old Gueuze” in bubbles of 4. It was surprising, difficult, fun, enjoyable, liberating … In short: a more than successful evening!

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!
