Event Details

OUD BEERSEL CASTLE WALK

 

During this event, you’ll get a tour around the brewery and learn how we use our Lambics to make our blends of Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek. To complete the experience, of course we will also let you taste our Oude Geuze.

Next, wander through the cherry orchard, located just behind our brewery, as you make your way to the Beersel Castle. Although Beersel is only 10 km from Brussels, it offers fantastic views of the nature and fauna that the Senne Valley has to offer. A tasty Kriekenlambiek cannot be missed here.

During the walk you will learn about the bombardment of Beersel Castle in 1489. It was then that cannons, located in what is now the Kriekengaard, fired on the castle in an attempt to thwart the rule of the Holy Roman Emperor. When analyzing the ballistics and trajectory of cannonballs found within the castle walls, it was determined that they were fired from the spot where our Schaarbeekse cherry trees currently grow!

Once you reach the castle, you will get a brief introduction to its history and, of course, another tasting of Lambic beer. In total, the event lasts about 2.5 hours. It’s a great way to learn more about our beers and our history.
