After a morning spent drinking near the Grote Markt in Brussels, Elaina and I took the trek to Lambik Land. We specifically chose this day because Drei Fontein was open and serving dinner.

After an initial disappointment at finding the castle closed, Elaina and I wandered slowly into Beersel until we came to the inauspicious restaurant and brewery. The atmosphere reminded me of a Wisconsin supper club. Its 50s esthetic was giving way to a small town, almost rustic vibe and despite the casual feel of the place, one felt confident that something gourmet was cooking up in the kitchen.

The staff told us that they weren't actually open yet but allowed us to stay for a drink anyways, probably after taking pity on our soaked and disheveled appearance (it had been pouring rain all day). A kind bar maid was quick to pour us two glass of 1 year lambik from a cask before joining her coworkers at a large table for the staff dinner. Elaina and I sipped our beers gratefully and then took our leave. After a pub crawl of Beersel we returned for dinner.

I ordered a magnificent guinea hen served in a kriek sauce (truly an A+ entre) and Elaina ate a good, although somewhat dry and tough rabbit cooked in oude geuze. I ordered a bottle of 1997 (11 year old) Oude Geuze for 12 Euros. It completely blew my mind. We later finished with glasses of Kriek, also from cask, that resembled pure, tart cherry juice followed by a creamy faro.

All in all a wonderful experience that I certainly hope to repeat. Although the selection was very, very limited I was not let down one bit. I'll take 4 perfect beers over 400 great beers anytime.

I've met a lot of friendly people at breweries, but getting to meet Armand and the brewers behind the beers was beyond words. This is a definite must-visit if you're in Brussels.

Surprisingly few reviews of this place! This is an absolute must-go for any beer lover doing the Belgium pilgrimage. We stopped for lunch, I believe on a Thursday or Friday. Only a few people in there. A quiet little restaurant in a quiet little town. Service was spot on, and the food was the best I had during my week in Belgium. I don't remember exactly what I got, but I think it was some sort of duck or rabbit stew made with gueuze or kriek. Unbelievably delicious! The brewery was quiet that day but the had a little shop where you could buy beers, glasses and other swag. Whatever you do don't miss out on this place.

Ok the family on an outing, and we stopped for lunch. The food was fantastic. The selection of beers was wonderful. I wish I had more people with me so we could split some of the vintage bottles. They had a good selection. The staff was all very friendly and gracious. The beers fantastic. I had an Oude Gueuze and a Faro. I will definitely be returning to drink off the bottle list.
