Not a conventional brewery visit. The tour itself is self-guided with a pamphlet, but it's almost better that way, as you just get to absorb the atmosphere in a 100+ year old brewery, and all of it's quirks and charm. Jean-Pierre Van Roy himself gave...More

Yay: One of the very few places in the world doing spontaneous fermentation so it was cool to see their craft and taste some really different beers and true fruit beers made with actual fruit and not syrup (therefore complex and not cloying sweet). Personally...More

Their beer is not for everyone. Personally, I love this type of beer (sour) and therefore found the entire experience very interesting. FYI, their beer is world renown.

It's not the sort of neighbourhood where you would want to leave your rental car behind, even if you can find a parking spot. Try going by train. It's only a short walk from Brussels South station.
