Pictures: Visit Boon brewery

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!

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!

Pictures: Golden Lambikstoemper 2020 award show

On Sunday 22th of November 2020, our Golden Lambikstoemper award (Gouden Lambikstoemper) was awarded for the 11th time to the business that, in our opinion, paid the most attention to lambic beers in 2020.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition was given a safe jacket of exactly 1.5 meters long, so that the applicable distance rules within the Corona measures could be complied with.

And the winner was… (beer) restaurant De Smidse (Fabriekstraat 23 in 1652 Alsemberg). Congratulations, Peloese and team!
