Already for the 14th time De Lambikstoempers vzw and the Streekproducten Centrum joined forces for the Dag van de Oude Geuze (Day of the Old Gueuze), on 23-24 November 2019, on which all beers of spontaneous fermentation (based on 100% lambic) from the Pajottenland were united.
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.
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!
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!
And yes, that same weekend there are certainly still other interesting and tempting (beer)events to go to, so it will be a matter of combining or choosing. So we just want to lend you a hand with the latter.
Why? That’s why!
