Lambic Academy

When “beer” is your profession ànd passion


Have you ever been asked a question about lambic beers and you didn't know the answer? That's about to change!

The Lambic Academy is an educational initiative by HORAL that offers skilled support to anyone who is engaged in lambic beers at a professional level. This training course is primarily geared towards pub and restaurant owners and their staff.

During the Lambic Academy session you will learn about the basics including the history of lambic beers, different producers, their beers, insights into the brewing method, and its characteristics. Thanks to the many useful tips and practice with serving, smelling, and tasting authentic lambic beers and the positioning of lambic beers in the Belgian beer scene, you and your staff will have a solid basis to offer your customers an Oude Geuze or Oude Kriek. Your deep knowledge of traditional lambic beers will become an extra trump card and asset in your pub or restaurant.
