A Tale of Two Limbourgs
This was a pretty significant update... :tldr:

It started as a tip-off from (Belgian) Chris, the newest LI team member. He knew a local beer shop that operates out of a former lambic blendery warehouse, Limbourg. We contacted the owner, who referred us to his uncle, the family historian/genealogist.

Previously I knew of only one Limbourg, in Anderlecht, because Cantillon bought their old building a few years ago to double their storage. Turns out they were closely related to this other one in the town of Gaasbeek (in the Lennik region), the founders were brothers, and their sons (who succeeded them) were cousins.

Once we contacted the uncle, he sent us a paper he wrote on his family history in the beer trade. It documented both lambic blenders in extensive detail, as well as family lambic cafes, and the beer distributor. After translating and reviewing it, I drafted content for the 2 pages on Lambic.info, and collaborated with him to finish a final draft, including some cool historical photos.

This is deeper into family history than I rarely if ever find on my own, and I was really grateful to Mr. Limbourg for sharing his research and to Chris for setting the whole thing in motion. It got me interested in my own family history, and soon i'll be getting our family genealogy records to take care of.
Anyway, if you want to read them, here are the 2 Limbourgs with a lot of new info. :cheers:

Dang man, I wish you'd dump this into the facebook group too so I'm not so late catching up on it and so it gets some more eyes!  :D

Get yourself to 3F, and say "PBR LI me, ASAP!" :lol: But seriously, they should be available on-site at Lambik-O-Droom for awhile. :cheers:
