HORAL Megablend 2022


On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the brewers' association and the 14th Toer de Geuze, the HORAL members have created a special oude geuze

the HORAL Megablend 2022. It is the 8th Megablend in a row. All 11 HORAL members (Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Den Herberg, Hanssens, Lambiek Fabriek, Lindemans, Mort Subite, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans) have contributed by delivering an amount of lambic. 29,300 bottles were filled. The outside was printed with a festive tricolor design. On the front are the HORAL logo, the names of all manufacturers, the date 1997-2022, a flag with the number 25 and the European Traditional Speciality Guaranteed label.

If you also want to taste this Megablend, you can buy bottles during the Toer de Geuze at the HORAL members who contributed to the Megablend or order a box of 12 bottles via megablend@horal.be. Shipping cost will be added.

Toer de Geuze bus services


The next open brewery weekend will be organised on May 4 and 5, 2024. Admission to all participating lambic breweries and gueuze blenders is FREE. You can do the Toer de Geuze with your own transport (car, bicycle…) or use one of HORAL’s buses. You can purchase bus tickets here.

Where do the buses leave?

There are two start and finish locations: Halle train station and Denderleeuw train station.

When do the buses leave?

The doors of the blenders and breweries open on Saturday at 11 A.M., and on Sunday at 10 A.M. This means that the buses leave the station on Saturday at 10:30 A.M. and on Sunday at 09:30 A.M. sharp.

Shuttle bus from/to Biercentrum De Lambiek

Biercentrum De Lambiek in Alsemberg (Beersel) organises several activities at the Toer de Geuze.

That is why a shuttle bus leaves from the Biercentrum to Halle station sharply on Saturday morning at 11 A.M. and Sunday at 10 A.M. In the evening, after the Toer de Geuze, the shuttle bus from Halle station returns to De Lambiek.

This shuttle bus is FREE. However, a reservation is required. So anyone who would like to use the shuttle bus AND a specific route from Halle station must, in addition to the paid ticket for the actual Toer de Geuze route, also reserve a free ticket for the shuttle bus.
