  • Okay, great beer, fast service, good atmosphere. I loved the proof beer had never done.

  • Friendly Madam (Miriam) who spoke Dutch, English and French. Personal attention everyone gave during the tour which makes you get involved stayed with the story, even if they are in a different language. Nice to see how and where beer is brewed. This tour is also nice if you ever a brewery. We went even different ingredients of beer tasting and smelling. After the tour we all got 2 beers to taste together or we recognize things by what we had seen during the tour. Very nice!

  • We had a very nice and informative tour of the brewery, with a generous tasting of two beers at the end. The brewery restaurant offers a very nice menu in a warm, convivial setting.  more »

  • The restaurant served delicious food and the beer was amazing. I think they served beers that could suit almost anyone. I am not a fan of beer and even I found one that I liked. I would have given it a five but it was so hot inside that it was almost hard to enjoy the atmosphere and food. I don't know if they have AC or not. Many guest were fanning themselves. The restaurant also offers tours and has a gift shop where you can purchase any beer from the menu.
  • The restaurant has that vibrant atmosphere and personnel is generally kind. The Flemish stew was... not one of the best I tasted: it was not bad by any means but the meat was a too dry. The meal was also served way too fast: as much as I don't appreciate waiting for ever, no wait at all doesn't convey a genuine feeling. The beer I had with that stew, however, was excellent: after all that's the main reason you come here for, right? Regarding dessert I ended up getting the single malt whiskey tiramisù (two previous dessert picks of mine were reported as not available, which is quite a bummer): I have to agree with previous reviews saying the single malt whiskey can't be tasted at all. Again, the dessert was good but if you want to market it that way, you need to make sure a subtle whiskey flavor can be tasted otherwise it feels like a rip off.
  • Tour ticket costs €8 inclusive of 2 types of beer tasting - classic and tripel. The guide speaks in Dutch and translates it in English, so it takes longer than usual. You can see the actual brewing machinery except the bottling process because it is done on a different location. In my opinion, the dark beer is really good so it is worth a visit. They also have a restaurant, bar and hotel in this location.
  • Very interesting guided tour with beer tasting afterward. The restaurant does not make you say 'wow'. It's all about beer after all... Gouden Carolus is nice. You should try ;-)
  • Very nice tour. The restaurant serves Belgian dishes accompanied by excellent bier.
