Very nice brewery with amazing beers. Nice location just out of Brussels, with very friendly people. I was there during the Toer de Geuze 2013.

Quaint restaurant/location in the city of Beersel. Itís up a bit of a hill, which wasnít too much fun in the rain, but it was worth it. Of course bottles of gueuze available to drink as well as some rarer treats like the faro, oude lambik, and kriekenlambik. Didnít eat, but the menu looked great. Some vintage and special bottles available, too. Service was typically Belgian (read: slow), but a pleasant experience otherwise.

Place Rating #300, and boy did I have to go through hell to find this place. One train, one tram, one bus (twice) and then wait in the snow for an hour until they open since they can decide to change their hours on a whim. That said, it was worth it. Oude Kriek on cask was sublime. Faro was excellent. Not a ton to offer that you canít get in bottles elsewhere, but the food is delicious (made from their beer in many cases), and itís a dusty place where you can just enjoy the beer and not worry about anyone there for another reason. Amen.

I made it to Belgium, and 3 Fonteinen was right at the top of my list. The atmosphere in the restaurant is fantastic. Quaint and serene, spacious and inviting. Service with a smile. I spoke with Armand for a few hours about the brewery, lambic, etc. while enjoying a 1997 Oude Gueze (and a few others as well). The Kriek, lambic, kriekenlambik, faro are all must tries if you are fortunate enough to make it here. Passion, tradition, quality, itís all here. My experience was so amazing here that I returned for another lengthy visit in lieu of visiting some of Belgiumís best breweries. That will have to wait for a subsequent visit. Overall, this was simply mind blowing. A bucket list kind of experience for me.

A visit to the 3 Fonteinen restaurant is an essential visit for lambic lovers. Now that Armandís tasting room is closed next to the shops, this is the place to come for draft 3 Fonteinen in Beersel. The place itself is a large traditional restaurant mostly full of the over-60s crowd. I was glad to have had the oude lambic and faro, but was fairly underwhelmed by the rest of the selection which consisted of <10 bottles. Yes there is some old stuff and hommage, but not even the full standard range. Food was traditional and flavoursome and service attentive. I am glad I visited, but am unlikely to return anytime soon, other than to visit the 3 Fonteinen shop down the street.

Visited on friday afternoon. Quite large place, pretty sober interior. Like a lot of belgian bars and restaurants. Small selection of 3 fonteinen products. Decent service. Food was ok-ish. Boring bread. Rating this place truly as the restaurant itself, the brewery + shop (of which the latter will be closed for the upgrade of the brewery) are of much higher value.

Good selection of Drie Fonteinen products. Lots of dishes cooked with gueuze. Comfy terrasse and nice music too. Service was slightly sluggish on my visit. Beersel is not very convenient to get to by train but it is truely worth the hassle. In addition to this restaurant, you will find the cafť and the bottle shop around the corner where you can chat with Armand and fill your bag of his delicious nectars.

This place is great, hanging at the restaurant for a while drinking Armandís great gueuze amongst other offerings. Food was fantastic, prices were very good. Went up to the store and hung with Armand himself. He was extremely kind and very open to discussing his beer and beer in general. Got a quick tour of the barrel room and met his wife as well. Great spot!
