  • A gold medal for ‘Timmermans Guinness’ Lambic & Stout
In 2018, Timmermans - the world's oldest Lambic brewery, and the iconic Irish stout Guinness, decided to team up as they are both names synonymous with quality, in order to share the know-how derived from 5 centuries' work, and give birth to an exceptional brew: Timmermans Guinness Lambic & Stout!The fruit of this fine Belgo-Irish story enabled them to record a score of 99/100 at the World Beer Challenge, putting them in top spot for the whole competition!This delicious beer offers a fine blend between the toasted notes of the stout and the cherries of the Lambic which impart a tangy acidity to the brew. This brew, made in a limited edition, was a resounding success and sold out in just a few weeks.Timmermans and Guinness have already announced a new edition due in September 2019.
