THE BEER

More than 300 Years, Timmermans has kept alive the tradition of the true lambic. This unique beer is brewed on the basis of 30% wheat in Itterbeek, in the oldest brewerie still working. At its origin lies a miracle: microbes in the air of the Senne valley enter 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. Since 1993, Martin’s Finest Beer Selection has been proud to preserve this authentic part of the heritage of the land of beer.

THE HISTORY

Timmermans has been brewing in Itterbeek for the last 300 years, ever since 1702. A few miles from the centre of Brussels, it was then known as «The Mole Brewery». Owned by Jan Vandermeulen, it was also a farm, an orchard, a café and a malt-house.
Elected «World’s Best Sour Beer» at the prestigious World Beer Awards 2015, Timmermans Oude Gueuze can take pride in this recognition of the quality of its lambics.
