Dears Friends,

We have received several questions regarding the Quintessence schedule.

We honor a maximum of 60 persons per 1/2 hour to make the arrivals and departures at the brewery more fluid.

There is not time limit for the visit-tasting. The bar will also be open for the ones who want a last glass.

Moreover, the Moeder Lambic will organise a "Cantillon After". They will propose draught Cantillon beers that will not be available during the event such as : Mamouche, Zwanze 2013, Iris Grand Cru and Lou Pépé Kriek for a vertical tasting of 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011 vintages.

All the tickets for the Quintessence have been sold.
There are no places for sell.
Thank you for your support.
