Just around the corner from the Drie Fonteinen, on the way to the Oud Beersel Café is the Drie Bronnen. A white painted two floor building, the “Three Springs” is a lovely old clean and well presented Café often with hanging baskets with flowers in full bloom above the windows.
As you enter, the bar is in front of you to your right. During one visit I have had the pleasure to sit out the back in the Brabant Sunshine, but usually it is common to sit inside in one of the two front rooms.
For its size, the beer range of nearly 50 is very impressive. In Beersel, as you would expect, the range is heavy on lambics and quite superb. Girardin lambic is available on tap (rare and excellent), Hanssens Kriek and Gueuze are always available though the bottles now sport labels. But mention the 3 Springs to “lambic lovers” and they will instantly tell you of about the home-made draught Cherry Lambic. The base of which is believed to be Girardin, steeped in cherries, it is very refreshing and a great introduction into the world of traditional Krieks, as it is neither too sweet, nor too dry. The other beers that are available are all solid alternates for non-lambic lovers, including Duvel and Rodenbach.
Snacks and small single plate meals are usually available, including many local Beersel specialities, but if you want to eat a substantial meal I would go to the 3 Fountains to be honest.
A lovely, very friendly, exceptionally well run Village Café, famous for its home made Cherry Lambic and always a real pleasure to visit.
