Bierhuis Oud Beersel dates back to 1934 when the farm and cart shed on the new brewery site were transformed into a bar by Edigius Vandervelden. His daughter, Marie-Therese, took over the bar and ran it until 1988.

Then her son, Danny Draps, took over the bar and managed it until its closure at the end of 2002. In 2003, the building was sold and became a flower shop. It was at that time that Gert Christiaens contacted Henri Vandervelden to help out. Managing a bar without the certainty of taking over the brewery and being able to build it up again was too much of an undertaking, as Gert’s main goal was safeguarding the beers.

Opening planned for mid 2021

In 2017, the opportunity arose to purchase the building as the flower shop was closing down. This time, Gert did not hesitate, and acquired the building with the scope of reviving the old bar of the brewery, Bierhuis Oud Beersel.

The opening of Bierhuis Oud Beersel is planned for mid-2021. It will be a taproom focusing on the wide range of Oud Beersel beers and some locally produced food. At the moment, we are in construction of the Bierhuis, and updates are given monthly in our newsletter.
