Brouwerij Timmermans: Artisanal lambic project

Published on October 22, 2013.

The brewery complex exists on multiple floors in several large rooms. It’s a fascinating place to visit.

The Timmermans malt crusher, built in 1911, in action. Yes, it still works!

Perhaps most impressive is the 1911 malt crusher, which still works! I know, because they fired it up while I was there. It’s a hundred years old, and still going strong. Surely, it must have been a quality builder that crafted this piece! The brewery does still mill its own grain with this old workhouse.

There is also an atmospheric café/tasting room where you can have a drink after a tour. There is additionally a large festival hall where groups of up to 100 people can be accommodated. Timmermans offers group tours by appointment seven days a week, and the hall can be rented out for banquets, receptions, seminars, and more.

A new batch of Timmermans Oude Kriek in 75 cl bottles was shipped to the USA in early August, in very limited quantities. This will be the first time the Oude Kriek has been available stateside. “We will ship the Pumpkin Lambicus around August 15th,” Dimitri Demol, Key Account Manager for Export, told me in early August. “It will be available in 75 cl bottle and in kegs.”

I look forward to having easy access to this and their many other beers. You should too. See: and for more info.

The Timmermans beers are imported to the U.S. by Belukus Marketing in College Station, Texas.
