Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Oud Beersel is a Belgian lambic brewery.HistoryOud Beersel is an artisanal Lambic brewery, based in Beersel and founded in 1882 by Henri Vandervelden. His son Louis, and then his grandson Henri, subsequently took over. The brewery remained in the same family until 2002. In 1991, it was taken over by Henri's nephew Danny Draps. In 2002, the brewing activities were stopped, due to financial problems. In 2005, driven by an interest in reviving the artisanal Oud Beersel kriek and geuze, two young men (Gert Christiaens and Roland De Bus) restarted the brewery. In order to finance the relaunch, the brewery is selling 2 beers called Bersalis Tripel and Bersalis Kadet, which are not lambic-based beers and are actually made by another brewery (the Huyghe Brewery in Melle). Bersalis is the Latin name of the city Beersel.The beers Bersalis or Bersalis Tripel gold yellow coloured ; Bersalis Kadet Old Geuze Old Kriek Framboise lambic
