In Februari 2009, Pierre Tilquin founded Gueuzerie Tilquin and by that realized an old dream of his. This, however, was not only a big step for him, it was also a really big happening in the world of gueuze. The last time a geuzeri was founded, was in 1997 by De Cam, and before that it was 40 years ago. Gueuzerie Tilquin is also the only gueuzerie that is situated in the French-speaking province of Brabant in Belgium.
Pierre is originally a bio engineer, but quite soon took a keen interest in beer. Therefore, he has studied a lot of courses in brewing and has worked at Drei Fonteinen and Cantillon. Since the first mixture was completed in June 2011, his beer has been well known and highly rated on the rating page ratebeer.com.
