A cool old building that is packed on multiple floors with foeders on foeders, barrels on barrels. The tasting room is modern and very cool, plenty of beer to sample and cheap prices on everything. The spirit is there with the owner, you can tell he loves what he does and respects the traditions of lambic greatly. Can’t wait for them to start making their own wort, because they’re already producing some good lambic.
In a nice little village, this old but nicely modernized brewery is just getting ready to brew again. Right now it is a barrel and blending house only. Tap and shop room are small, but run by local volunteers. Tour is dirt cheap and fun. A bit off the path, but worth the trip.
Had a tour of the old brewery and sampled some of their good Lambic’s. Staff are very helpful and informative. For just €8 got the tour, 2 good size tasters of very good beer, and a souvenir glass. Bargain!
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.
