Unless you are a huge beer enthusiast, I wouldn't bother. Tours are right in that same restaurant/room and didn't seem nearly as interesting as in Bruges. Beer was fine- good to have the smaller size taster options. People were also ordering ham/cheese platters that looked fresh and generous, as well as full meals (stew/frites). We didn't eat here so j... More

This brewery is so cozy! A young man told enthusiastic about the origin of the beer and the brewery. Meanwhile we got the 'Gruutjes beers' put in cute glasses in front of us. 3 types of beer. I don's like beer but this time I did my best and it was surprisingly tasty. Afterwards we dined at long tables, delicious... More

Positive: - you get three different (small) beers - A guide tells you about the brewery and the process Less positive: - If you are not really interested in the story, you can just sit at the bar, look around (the tour is in the same room) and order 3 bigger beers and still spend less money than with the...

We stopped by for a late lunch and had a great, relaxed time. The amber and brown beers are both delicious. Other reviews make it sound like the beer is somehow unusual but it's not strange - just very tasty! This is not a place to expect fine dining - there was one guy doing everything from waiting tables to... More

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

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
