Brewery 3 Fonteinen in Beersel is one of Belgium best known brewers of authentic lambic beer. In 2009, the brewery almost had to stop their activities after a fire destroyed most of their infrastructure, but in March 2013 a new brewing installation was inaugurated and now they are brewing again just like before.
Besides this gueuze beer, they also make their famous 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek, a sour cherry beer based on the same lambic beer that is used to blend this gueuze. This small brewery, with its shop and terrace is a popular stop for beer tourists who travel through Belgium.
