Great, house-brewed beer on tap. Their beers don't use hops, but use herbal alternatives for preservation. The food menu was nothing crazy, but the beer was great.

I made a brief lunchtime stop here, sampling their amber and inferno beers. I enjoyed both of them, nothing wildly different about them, but well made. It was quite quiet here early on a weekday afternoon. It looked like a pleasant spot for a meal, but that wasn't what I was there for. Worth stopping by if you are looking... More

Decent beer. Hard to find the brewery. No brewery tour and not much made of the history of the place. Would still go for the beer anyway

Great beer, lovely interior and tables available outside when it's sunny. Perfect place to enjoy an authentic Belgian beer!

This is a somewhat out of the way functioning brewery. It is small inside, but lovely. We didn't take a tour (was there one?) and had no food. But.... we did try beer flights and were very pleased. So much so we all purchased beers to take back to the hotel. Oh... the urinals are worthy of a mention ;-)... More

We visited the Gruut Brewery during our city trip to Ghent. To be honest, there is not so mucht to see of the brewing process, but the explanation and story given by the personnel is interesting (and humorous). They have a very nice lunch and diner menu and they will of course use beer in their recipes. A nice place... More

My wife and I visited the Gruut brewery late in the afternoon and the place was heaving. We were lucky to find a table and quickly ordered our beers even though the staff were rushed off of their feet. There was a good atmosphere as there were two tables full of people having been on or going on the brewery... More

Great find and a well kept secret. Easy to find if you know where and great welcome on arrival - The smell of the beer brewing and people enjoying themselves. Greeted immediately and recommended a table. Menu showed mostly the 5 De Gruut beers (there were probably others) in large pictures and fanciful colours. We had the White and the... More

We visited Gruut in December with the idea of being able to combine good beers and good food in a unique atmosphere (it's not every day you get to eat in a functioning brasserie!). We arrived around 1pm and the place was empty except for one other couple. There is a difference to make here between the beers and the... More

We visited the micro brewery last weekend with six friends. The place looks nice, with very clearly the brewing tanks and materials visible. However, the interior combined with the brewing atmosphere does not give a great ambiance. When we visited, the whole place smelled like a frying pan, which resulted after just two beers in clothes and jackets that needed... More
