The Brasserie d'Achouffe is a Belgian brewery based in Achouffe. It was founded in 1982 by two brothers-in-law, Pierre Gobron and Christian Bauweraerts, as a hobby. In September 2006, the brewery was bought by the brewery group Duvel Moortgat.HistoryIn the late 1970s, the two brothers-in-law, Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts, decided to create their own beer, in their own brewery. On the 27th of August 1982, with less than € 5,000, they made the first 49-litre mash tub. At first seen as a hobby, the Achouffe Brewery developed to such an extent that one after the other, Pierre and Chris decided work on it full time. They then decided to expand to the Netherlands.

  • The beer is very good, however - the tour, if you can call it that - was the worst we had while on our trip. We basically stood outside in the rain while being told the history, were brought into a li...  more »

  • Brewery tour is great value for money, besides the tour (done by a lovely guide) you get 4 samples to taste, one large chouffe, a present and a post card to send wherever you want (all for only 9eur)....  more »

  • Best beer world. Best trip in my whole life. You must go here.
  • Fun tour and nice tasting. You can try 3 different beers, you get a mini tasting glass as a present and a small ticket for another taster at some of the bars in the neighborhood.
  • A very nice visit in the brewery that ends with a 2 beers tasting and gift small glass. Same day registration starts at 9am, too early for the 2pm tour, especially when there was nothing to do around.
  • I have not been to their brewery, but I had their beer at Erbusco Bakery in Erbusco, Italy. It is the perfect beer for me. Not bitter and very smooth. I had the golden ale
  • Absolutely the best!
