Nice atmosphere and friendly people.

Great little brewery where you can sample all of Oud Beersel’s beers for cheap and buy their bottles very cheap as well. Owners are extremely friendly - had a great conversation with them while sampling some lambic. When in town, definitely worth the trip over here - just a 15 min walk from 3 Fonteinen.

Guided tours in English or Dutch on the first Saturday of the month for 7€, group tours may be booked anytime. The tour is very informative and run by volunteers from a nonprofit which promotes lambic beers. You get to taste the scum frothing out of the bungholes of actively fermenting barrels of lambic. Cool! Also included in the tour is a small souvenir glass and some beer. The beer is brewed at Boon then transported here for fermentation aging and blending. The old brewhouse is still there to look at. Recently renovated shoppe with a good selection of Gueze, fruit beer, old vintages, large formats, even bag-in-box lambic, also tshirts and stuff. There’s also a small bar which i neglected to inspect carefully. Really good tour, worth the trip from Brussels, great insight into the history and production of lambic beers.

I was here with kermis and JulienHuxley on a recent trip to Belgium. Plenty of their beers on sale, including gift packets or old vintages sold together in a pack. Really quite atmosphere, very clean, well lit place, with a polite fragile - maybe not the right word- lady there, it made you not wanting to raise your voice more than a whisper, like a church. Service from the lady was great, she didn’t mind us at all looking around for quite a bit or asking questions and such.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of their stuff on sale, including a few different vintages. The lady working there was very nice and helpful. They make a really tasty gueuze here and one of the best available kriek. Nice place to stop by, no excuse not to come here when visiting 3 fonteinen.

Visited during the Tour de Geuze 2013. Dark and dusty place, no signs of recent life, although our tour guide told us that some of Frank Boon’s beers are barrel-aged here. Nice little shop selling Oud Beersel beers and swag at the best prices I have seen. It was interesting to have a small peek into local lambik history.

A very nice and friendly place, the tour let you see the old brewing equipment no longer in use, and the barrel room. Not that excitng, but worth a stop if you are in the area.

Visited during Tour de Geuze 2013 – the part that was open was basically a museum and not a brewery. Same barrels, explanation & sampled. Place didn’t appear to be in use & only demonstrative. Explanation was fine, lambic better than remembered. Oud Beersel beers for sale, good prices – they are not particularly hard to get. Good but the least exiting of the lambic breweries visited to be honest.
