BREWERS DINNER, AUGUST 17TH SOLD OUT
Our annual Brewers Dinner features International Brewer Pierre Tilquin from Gueuzerie Tilquin, Portland-based Breakside Brewery & Chef Conner Martin at Tournant; doors open at 6pm – this event is sold out.MORE INFO
Fed up with research after earning a degree in bioengineering and a PhD in statistical genetics, Pierre Tilquin turned to an interest that had spawned during his PhD studies – lambic. After an intensive brewing course at Leuven University, Pierre worked for a year at Huyghe Brewery before spending six months each at Drie Fonteinen and Cantillon under the tutelage of Armand Debelder and Jean van Roy, respectively.
The plan for a blender was fomented by these experiences. It had been twelve years since a new gueuze-producer had emerged in Brabant (the previous was Geuzestekerij De Cam in 1997). Pierre then took a job at a bank in order to pay the bills for the newly-created Gueuzerie Tilquin, which started in January 2009, but would not have any product to sell until 2011, which was a blend of 1 and 2-year-old lambics.
In the following seasons, 3-year-old lambics were used in the blends. The Gueuzerie Tilquin is the first gueuze blender in Wallonia and has been growing steadily since its inception and now enjoys a world-renowned reputation for creating top-notch lambic and gueuze.
