Nice brewery

Nice brewery with excellent 'gruut' beer. Also nice to have a snack or 'uitsmijter'. You can take a tour through the brewery.

I stopped here on a Sunday, so it was pretty empty, but I'm glad I stumbled on this place. The staff was great, making a couple recommendations for tasting there and a few bottles to take home for later. The indoor space is nicely laid out and stylish. I hope I can return again for more of their delicious brews.

What a great place!! Very friendly staff, with a very interesting and enjoyable atmosphere!! Good beer and attractive prices. I did not take the tour, so can't give any opinions on that! But the bar is awesome!!! Totally worth the visit.

You can do a tour here followed by a tasting but to be honest there is not very much too look at so I would recommend waiving the tour and going straight to the tastings. For a set price of 6.50 euro you get three quite large samples of any three of the five beers that they produce. There is... More

I stopped by in the early afternoon and had a few of their beers. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and I enjoyed sitting by the canal with my beverage in hand. Smaller size beers are available for purchase if you're wanting to try a few more before being carried away by the ABV. The only thing about sitting outside... More

We visit the brewery to meet Ariel for a pre arranged beer walk. We arrived early so had a Gruut beer which was pretty nice. Ariel talked us through a few things at the brewery, then we set off on a walk which was about 3 hours long, stopping off at 4-5 bars/cafes on the way. I've never met someone... More

Enjoyed out visit here very much. Friendly and enthusiastic young fella gave us the tour, not the most extensive but nonetheless very interesting and I was fascinated to learn they used herbs rather than hops in there beer. Well worth a look.

As a diehard beerhunter I use to visit every interesting place, like this one. I was introduced to Gruut beer a few years ago, especially the dark Gruut was very tasteful. So I went inside and enjoyed the atmosphere, very pleasant and I took my Gruut beers on draught, cheers!

Thank Neuteboom
