De Cam Geuzestekerij is a Lambic Blendery based in Gooik, Belgium. An old Lambic Gueuzerie producing some of the best blends in Belgium if not the world.
De Cam’s lineup consists of traditional Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek, as well other fruited lambics.
Established in 1997 they were relative newcomers to the Lambic blending scene, although at the time were the first new traditional lambic blender to open in Belgium in nearly forty years.
All of De Cam’s offerings are strictly traditional, using conventional ingredients, methods, and techniques.
Founded by Willem van Herreweghen (Ex-Palm) with the help of Armand Debelder, Frank Boon, and Michel Doomst, the Mayor of Gooik, current stewardship has shifted over to Karel Goddeau.
Today, De Cam is still one of the smallest lambic blenders in Belgium, receiving its lambic from Boon, Girardin, and Lindemans, whilst utilising 1000L Pilsner Urquell casks, that trained cooper Goddeau personally maintains. Local fruit is also used with fruited lambics being macerated first in steel for 10-12 months before being put back in the barrel for up to another 4 months.
It’s a brewery that really scratches our Lambic itch and acts as a perfect counterpoint to the other brands on the Distant Lands roster. As importers of European beer we saw it as only right to add this producer to our lists.Buy De Cam Beer from Distant Lands
