  • International day of Belgian beer, nothing better than a visit to a typical brewery of our ardennes. Map simple and effective, guarantee of freshness and quality. Staff very nice, welcoming. A first for us, but not the last. Thanks to our friends for this discovery.

  • Brasserie dishes. We tested the cheese croquettes and cannonballs at the Liège. Both dishes were very good and, accompanied by a nice amount of raw vegetables. The fries served with the cannonballs were also very good. Chouffe enjoy with a cold! The small shop next to the brewery is friendly and offer a game stamped broad Chouffe.

  • Visit to the brewery was fun and the additional tasting delicious. Then wanted to have lunch on one of its restaurants. However by the unfriendly control we have something to drink and we are again left

  • Love this beer! Basic tour but the price and tasting make it well worth it!
  • Best beer world. Best trip in my whole life. You must go here.
  • I like the tasting of the different beers and the explanation of how beer is made. The tasting part was very much rushed and we were asked to leave. You don't get to see the brewing process, only a guide pointing at a kettle and a video sadly.
  • 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.
