Took a little while to find this place. Best to rely on the address rather than what Google Maps tells you!
There is a small shop at the front with a fairly small range. But it’s the ideal place to pick up Bzart specials as cheaply as you can.
I think the main draw of coming here is to do the tour. I was impressed with the passion of the staff and the old processes they use to make their beers. Seeing things in action has made drinking their beers all the more special.
Visited on Saturday morning, 21/11/15, around 10 am.
We had only intended to drop by to pick up some bottles but got chatting to the brewers father who was manning the shop who then offered to take us on an impromptu tour of the brewery which we gladly snapped up !
The vast majority of Oud Beersel beers were available for sale, including the Bzarts, all at reasonable prices.
There was also merchandise on offer and foodstuffs such as chocolate pralines made with their beer.
They have a small bar area with three taps and bottles in the fridge from which we were given a few tasters, the taps weren’t live yet but were expected to be so in the coming weeks.
The tour was great and the brewery is much bigger than it appears from the street. They are presently expanding and fitting new equipment upstairs that will be winched in. Upstairs also houses a small museum and a tasting room.
We met the brewer when we got back downstairs.
Overall a great stop, friendly people and good Lambic on offer, very underrated in my opinion.
Rather small room with a beer shop in the front, a little merchandize in the middle and a little bar in the back, where you can taste their beers. The father of the owner/brewer spontaneously offered us a little tour trough the brewery in the building behind. Very nice people with a charming little brewery. Totally worth dropping in.

Visited on a random Saturday. Very friendly people, the father of the brewmaster gave us a spontaneous tour around the brewery. They have some beers available to taste directly and lots of beers for sale: Bzarts, Bersalis, Oak Aged Bersalis, Oud Geuze, Oud Kriek, some ~3 year old vintages. Very good prices for the core range. I love this place, especially because we were lucky to get the spontaneous brewery tour :)
Last time I visited three years ago, this was a cold/small place, not welcoming to be. Nowadays, this is a great place. Very friendly owner, nice selection on their own beers with a little bar-section were you can taste some of their beers. We got a little brewery tour from the owher/brewmaster, who is really passioned. Lambiek-world needs more guys like him!
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.
