Pictures: Visiting St-Feuillien brewery

On Saturday 28th of May 2022, De Lambikstoempers paid another visit to Brasserie St-Feuillien in Le Rœulx. We had already been there once in 2007, but in the meantime a lot has changed and… improved in both camps!

Edwin Dedoncker, General Manager at Brasserie St-Feuillien S.A., welcomed us with pleasure and gave a short “exposé” in the “Grand Cru” room under the old brewery. This was followed by an extensive tour of the old brewery and the new one. And of course there was also time to taste, on the sun-drenched terrace of the brewery! You can clearly see from the photos below that it was – once again – in order…

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: visit of The Musketeers brewery

The Musketeers Brewery was founded in 1999 by 4 brewing engineers. Brewing beer was the hobby and passion of these four comrades. Their first concoctions were developed in Kristof’s mother’s kitchen.

In 2016, the brewers decided to buy an old brickyard in Sint-Gillis-Waas. The brickyard was renovated and converted into a contemporary and ecological beer brewery. A new building was built adjacent to house the offices of The Musketeers, the brewery hall and the warehouse.

It’s there where De Lambikstoempers went to take a look on Saturday 17th of October 2020 … between two Covid-19 lockdowns and with respect for the applicable corona measures (mouth masks, keep your distance, disinfect hands …)
