Oud Beersel is an artisanal Lambic brewery, based in Beersel and founded
in 1882 by Henri Vandervelden. His son Louis then his grand-son Henri
take over. The brewery remained in the same family until 2002. In 1991,
it was taken over by Henri's nephew Danny Draps. In 2002, the brewing
activities were stopped, due to financial problems. In 2005, driven by an
interest in reviving the artisanal Oud Beersel kriek and geuze, two young
men (Gert Christiaens and Roland De Bus) restarted the brewery. In order
to finance the relaunch, the brewery is selling a beer called Bersalis, which
is not a lambic-based beer and is actually made by another brewery (the
Huyghe Brewery in Melle).
