  • I visited several breweries both in Italy and abroad and I must say I do a tour at the brewery Het Anker is worth. Mechelen is a small town north of Brussels, there are not so many attractions and then a two-hour visit to the brewery is perfect to fill the day. The tour is in Dutch (we are in Flemish area), but the Guide (a highly trained and personable gentleman) also translated in English ... not really everything he says, but enough. The tour includes, among other things, the explanation of the ingredients used, a passage about the room formerly used for bottling. Beautiful view from the roof of the brewery, where there is the old cooling tank (no longer used). Very interesting also the passage to the cellar where they store the casks of whiskey, a new production of Het Anker. And, at the end of the tour, twin tasting (Gouden Carolus Tripel and Gouden Carolus Classic): since the tour costs € 8, it's a bargain. Recommend the tour to all lovers of beer but also who is not an expert, since the explanations are not particularly "techniques".

  • One of the best artisanal brewery in Flanders. I had the guided tour and it is very interesting. The final test of a blonde and a dark beer is the best way to taste this mighty product.
  • Nice brewery. Restaurant had great food and the beer was good. We didn't try the tour.
  • Nice little surprise stopping here, good classic brewery atmosphere with good food and good beer. Didn't try the single malt
  • Definitely worth a visit while in Mechelen. Try the 5 x 15cl beer tasting, eat a Flemish beer stew and taste their Whiskey.
  • Vriendelijke gids en leuke tour
