De struise brouwers online dating
Didier and his family run a superb canalside café restaurant with a superbly picked beer menu extending to 150 excellent beers including usually some Struise Brouwers Beers on draught.
Didier has said he will get a draught lambic beer in especially for our visit.
Originally brewed for Ebenezer’s Pub in Lovell, Maine (USA), this beer is a tribute to Albert II, sixth king of the Belgians.
Nicknamed ‘laughing king’, it is only fitting that the beer named after him should put a big smile on your face. This big mother of a Russian Imperial Stout is often considered one of our true classics This is not as much a beer as it is an experience.
Over the five days of the Tour we will endeavour to visit Belgium’s lambic brewers and blenders: We also aim to visit the best of the specialised lambic cafes of Lambic Land.
By popular demand this Tour is based at the newly refurbished four star Hotel Keizershof in the centre of Aalst.
Since then Belgian brewing has gone from strength to strength—there are now around 180 breweries in the country, made up of international giants as well as smaller micro establishments, and this means the sheer variety of styles on offer will leave even the most ardent of beer drinkers spoilt for choice.
After a leisurely breakfast*, leave hotel on the coach for the biannual Toer de Geuze.
Over the years the Toer de Geuze has attracted more and more people and each venue gets quite crowded with those enjoying these open days and beers.
We will also call in at the visitors Centre De Lambiek in Beersel (Alsemberg).
There will be meals at the superb de Heeren van Liedekerke and Café-Restaurant 3 Fonteinen in Beersel, plus a trip to specialist lambic cafe In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst.
