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

Went looking for the brewery after hearing good reviews and was very pleased with the findings. Great little brewery bar by the canal and on an hot day like we had, you can sit out side by the canal. The lady brewer and owner is available for help and advice. You cant get beer and fresher, The bar is less... 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!

We had arranged a brewery visit with cheese and sausage plates and had a very good time sampling 3 tasters of their brews. We have been on a lot of brewery tours ( camra members) and found this one to be very interesting. Although it is very small Bram our guide/host gave a very interesting and at times amusing talk...

Went for a quick lunch and a dark beer. There is no need to follow the guide through the little brewery as you can hear the explanation on your chair in several languages. The guide claims to have the only gruut beer in the world, but actually, that is not true. Brugse Tripel (a division of Palm breweries) also has... More

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...
