I'm told there is a new brewery in or close to Poperinge, does anyone know any details?r
Define "new"! Of the two mentioned on here toerismepoperinge.be/en/… Van Eecke dates from the 17th century and Sint Bernardus from 1946 (Nevejan also used to be a brewery but no longer). De Dolle Brouwers in nearby Esen was revived in 1980 - but dates back to 1882 - and I think Deca in Woesten dates from the 19th century.
Maybe this will give you some idea of what it might be: craftypint.com/features/…
I visit regularly (was there in May last) and have not heard anything.
Do you have any more details?
Unless you mean Strusie in Oostvleteren?? They've been going for a while now though but last year moved to new premises, they used to brew at Deca mentioned by Qaminari

new, I mean very new, maybe not even open yet. This is according to "Podge" Pollard writer of the wonderful "80 Bars & Beers" books.
If Podge told you didn't he give you any more information? Or did you read it somewhere?
I'd be interested to know myself.
Got an email from the Poperinge tourist office, they said they know of no new brewery.
