The Toer de Geuze began in 1997 as a cultural celebration of the centuries old tradition of spontaneously fermented Lambic beers.
As part of the Toer de Geuze’s rich and diverse programme of events in 2022, HORAL is introducing a new livestream event called The Lambic Round Table. Lambic personalities will sit down to discuss key issues relating to Lambic’s history, culture, and production.
It will take place on Friday 29 April 2022 at 20:00 (CET). We kindly invite all Lambic lovers to come together and celebrate Lambic beers on this date.

HORAL is organising the next edition of the Toer de Geuze on Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May, 2022
The opening hours are:
The following breweries and blenderies will be open on Saturday and Sunday: Boon, De Cam, De Troch, Den Herberg, Lambiek Fabriek, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin, Timmermans and the visitor centre De Lambiek. Hanssens and Mort Subite will be open on SUNDAY ONLY.
The entrance to all participating breweries, blenderies and the visitor center De Lambiek is FREE OF CHARGE. One does not need to make a reservation to visit a brewery or blendery.
One can do the tour with one’s own means of transport (car, bike…), or one can book a seat on one of the Toer de Geuze coaches.
Lambic and gueuze are most unique beers, keeping the age-old tradition of spontaneous fermentation alive in the Pajottenland and Senne Valley. Find out how the brewing of these beers is a fascinating process that takes several years.
For every Toer de Geuze, a special Oude Geuze is created to commemorate the occasion: The HORAL Megablend.
The Megablend 2021 is a blend of young and old lambic from 10 producers: Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Tilquin, Lambiek Fabriek, Lindemans, Mort Subite, Oud Beersel and Timmermans.
