We went here sort of last minute and were asked if we wanted to do a tour. Of course we wanted that. The tour guide (Jan) was amazing guiding us and was super passionate about the job. At the end of the tour, we were able to taste two of their beers, which tasted great! Overall, worth to go to!

We went there at 21.30 and unfortunately the kitchen was closed from 21.00. So we were not able to taste anything. A young waiter was kind enough to offer us (for free some sloces of bread and cheece!) But we had the chance to taste beers from the brewery. The atmosphere around was cozy and relaxing.

A beautiful visit of the brewery guided by Myriam. Switching perfectly between Dutch and English, this tour is a highlight of brewing and the art in Mechelen. An amazing explanation how beers is made, history and the different ingredients used. Seeing the aging whiskey and Walking around the current brewing site and finishing with a degustation of the Classic and Triple.

This tour is a great insight into this ancient brewery. Including tasting it lasted best part of 2 hours. Only niggle was the tour guide switched languages mid sentence and spoke very quickly. It would have been easier to follow if he had said each piece in full in both languages. Plus we disagree with his reference to IPA being an American beer- it's not, it's English. Gouden Carolus classic is an excellent beer though!
