The Brewery Oud Beersel, which started in 1882, is an authentic and independent Lambic brewery. It is well known for its Lambic beer brewed along traditional brewing methods.
Lambic matures up to three years in wooden barrels, whereupon it is blended to make Oude Geuze. Sour cherries undergo fermentation in lambic beer and after a second fermentation in the bottle Oude Kriek is born. This unique brewing process with spontaneous fermentation is possible in Belgium in the Pajottenland region, the Zenne Valley and in Brussels, because of the presence of a specific microflora.
You can visit the brewery individually or in group. The guided tours are provided by the guides of VZW De Geuzen van Oud Beersel and the total visit takes about 90 minutes.
