Brand Story

In a roundabout way, Hanssens is one of the oldest lambic blenders in Belgium. Before moving to their current site in 1896, lambic was brewed and blended at the family farm since 1871.Hanssens Artisanaal bvba is a traditional lambic blendery located in Dworp (Tourneppe), Belgium. Hanssens offers a range of lambics including Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek, a specialty Scarenbecca Kriek made from Schaerbeekse Cherries, and the only authentic strawberry lambic in Belgium, Oudbeitje. Raspberry and Cassis lambics are available in the United States, and Hanssens has also blended lambic and mead. According to Van Den Steen, Hanssens was the first brewery to use the protected name of Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek on their labeling.
