A visit to BOON brewery
The first traces of what is now the BOON Brewery date back to 1680. The brewery got
its current name in 1977, when René De Vits sold the brewery as lambic maturing cellars
to Frank Boon. The brewery is one of the few to use the turbid-wort method, the oldest
traditional method for brewing spontaneous-fermentation beers.
Group visits are possible (from 15 to 50 persons) after prior reservation. Individual visitors
are welcome on certain days following reservation, and every Wednesday at 3 p.m.in
July and August. More detailed information can be found on the website: www.boon.be
