Get your lambic on at the new “Experience Center” with Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen!

Brouwerij 3 FonteinenIf you are a craft beer drinker most likely you are also in to lambic. The dream of spending time in Belgium with a glass of lambic in hand has been a desire of mine for quite some time. Well that dream just got a lot better… Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen just recently purchased a warehouse in the city of Lot, and they are transforming that warehouse into a lambic paradise. This new facility will house their new barrel-aging, blending, and bottling facility along with a tasting cafe and a shop. Just imagine walking around with lambic in hand through rows of barrels, and you look to the left and there are people bottling this years Oude Geuze or maybe you might even get to see a coolship! It’s a very exciting time for lambic lovers and especially Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen! The whole idea is to provide the “Experience” to people who enjoy lambic by teaching them the art of the craft and traditions of lambic beer brewing, blending, and bottling. You will be able to tour the facility while drinking lambic and see the 3 Fonteinen workers blending beer, bottling and packing boxes of your favorite suds all at the same time. Don’t forget to stop by the cafe where you can enjoy special bottles like Zenne y Frontera that you can consume onsite. You can also visit the shop where you can purchase bottles of Oude Geuze and others to take with you. I think I finally need to purchase my ticket to Belgium… The Experience Center is set to open its doors in late 2016 or early 2017 but the full move will probably take up to 5 years to move barrels from warehouse to warehouse.
