Big things are planned at Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen & lambik-O-droom for Toer de Geuze weekend. Business Manager and co-owner/co-manager Werner Van Obberghen had this to say: “We hope for sunny days, because the event will mostly be hosted outside. We will have several lambics straight from the cask, including young and old lambic, several fruit lambics, and perhaps some blackberry lambic as well, made from biologically grown blackberries.”
More from the brewery: “In a few weeks we’re at it again: the biennial lambic and geuze feast. We look forward welcoming you at our newest location; the barrel room filled with oak and traditional lambic, the Schaarbeekse cherry tree field, etc. You will be able to enjoy our lambics and geuzes inside the lambik-O-droom as well as outside on the grass field under a (hopefully) lovely spring sunshine. We will have tasty lambic cocktails served by Baroness, you can savour typical local produce such as Beersels white basket cheese, pottekeis, geuze cheese and geuze pâté, and ice cream with kriek lambic sauce. For the little ones, we will have a bouncy castle, and there will be folkloric music typical to the Pajottenland region. On Sunday there will be a demonstration by Gerda Legrand of bottle basket weaving.
Please note that vintage geuzes and specials (see https://3fonteinen.be/en/menu/) will only be served in the days before the Tour de Geuze (and afterwards). The lambic-O-droom will open on Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th and Friday May 5th 2017, from 10AM to 5PM. During the Tour de Geuze we will serve some unique traditional (fruit) lambics. Keep an eye out for it on our FB page.”
The brewery is located at Molenstraat 47 in the village of Lot, near Beersel. The lambik-o-droom will be open from 10 am to 5 pm from Wednesday to Friday, May 3 to 5, and from 11 am Saturday May 6 and 10 am Sunday, May 7.
