Pictures: ‘Beer & Art’ Tasting

Brewing beer is an art anyway. On Friday 10 March 2023, De Lambikstoempers will serve some extra artistic beers in room ‘Regenboog’ (Zennedal) in 1501 Buizingen.

The link between beer and an 1881 painting by Edouard Manet, the 1986 sculpture ‘Woman and Man’ by José Vermeersch or a book set in the first half of the 17th century, written by Nikolai Gogol? You found out all about it at this tasting!

We tasted, discussed, judged… and once again practised the Art of Tasting! And those who did not attend were once again wrong. 😛

Pictures: tasting ‘Beer, herbs & spices’

Beer with herbs and spices… A relationship for centuries.

What is the difference between herbs and spices? And are some herbs and spices really enhancing some beers? Do brewers prefer to add a subtle touch or go for a real spice bomb in the glass? Either way, herbs & spices allow the brewer to experiment while brewing.

On Friday 9th of December 2022, The Lambikstoempers blindly tasted 10 beers containing one or more herbs/spices. Using pots and plants with different herbs and spices and some macerates, we tried to make the match. And yes, it was a very difficult but also very fascinating tasting!
