Project Description

The story of lambic in the Belgian culture is a complex history that dates back to the times of the Roman Empire. From conquest and conquer in ancient times, to World Wars, taxation, decline in popularity, and resurgence, lambic has continued to persevere and evolve.

Defined by Jan IV, count of Flanders in 1420, the use of 30% of wheat was from 1965 registered with other standards as plato grade and brewing place in the Belgian Royal Decree. Lambic may only be brewed in Brussels on its west side called Zenne Valley & Pajotteland and its flavor is acquired through the wheat and barley in the brewing process as well as the micro-organisms (including Brettanomyces lambicus and Brettanomyces bruxellensis) present in the air of the Zenne valley which allow spontaneous fermentation.

Lambic is brewed when the nights are cold – from October to May.  Approximately 300 Lambic breweries existed around 1900. Now, only about 10 traditional Lambic breweries are left.

TIMMERMANS BREWERY

Timmermans has kept the tradition of the true lambic alive for over 300 years now. This unique beer, made with 30% wheat, is brewed in Itterbeek (Belgium), in the world’s oldest lambic brewery. At its origin is a miracle: micro-organisms in the air of the Senne valley end up in the wort and cause spontaneous fermentation. This is why a true lambic is brewed only within a 15 km radius of Brussels, in the area known as Pajottenland. The lambic age for 1 to 3 years in wood barrels to be then blended with other lambics or fruits.

MARTIN BREWREY / BOURGOGNE DES FLANDRES

While the US were on the verge of independence, a small farm near bruges was preparing to become a major brewery in the history of bruges brewing. In the year 1800, the brewery, named Brewery Den Os, moved to Bruges to expend its brewing activities.  In 1911, they created their jewel, a red-brown flemish ale: Bourgogne des Flandres. Brewery Den Os was a major brewery in Bruges and closed after all its neighbors in the late 50’s. It’s finally in 2015 that the brewery is back again in the city landscape of Bruges.
