We just visited the shop and the tavern. Nice place but a bit futuristic but where I could taste some beers I couldnít find elsewhere. Next time I probably go to the other hut near the "lake".

Had a brewery tou a few years ago. The tour was nothing special, but we had to travel between brewery, bottling room and a nice little pub where we could taste the beer.

A nice bar in a nice area that straddles the line between naff and tasteless due to the gnome overload. It is a great place to get your hands on the full Chouffe line but is a touch too touristy for my liking. Service was decent. We shared our first ever croque monsieur in Belgium and certainly should not have bothered. Not good. All in all not bad but no need to return.

Nice visit to this fun brewery. The tour is well planned, and the pub, the tasting and the shop are all nice. Worth a visit.

Somewhere Iíve always wanted to visit since my first sip of La Chouffe (many years ago). I met the original brewer at a Zythos fest in 2007 and told him Iím visit one day. That day was Saturday 30th August 2008. A classic car club were visiting as well as a bus load on a tour. The overflow carpark was where we had to go, the place was very busy. Sadly I was driving, so only one beer was consummed by me (I did buy some bottles at the shop though). The bar everyone is reviewing is behind the brewery, which can be seen through the interior windows of the bar. To reach it you must walk past the shop and brewery and turn right, it doesnít look very interesting as you approach, but it soon turns into a dream. I canít add much to the previous reviewers, the place is a delight and exudes class and an ambience rarely seen in the modern world. Really pleased I went, Iíll not be driving next time. By the overflow carpark there is another larger brewery owned bar, it is only across the road with a lovely garden area to it. I didnít go in, but it also looked classy. Been back since my first visit and it is now a lot different, more touristy and spread out away from the actual brewery buildings, pleasant lake and visitor centre but the new bar is to modern for my liking: hence the fairly low score.

Situated in the idyllic countryside in the Ardennes. A big souvenir shop and restaurant. Nice surroundings, but maybe a bit touristy? If you do not have the chance to visit d Achouffe, you can find their beers in almost every decent bottleshop. No beer exclusively brewed for the brewery tap. (Visited July 6th 2012)

The beers are great, but the little video with the gnomes was a bit over the top for me

If you have never been to a brewery, like probably most of the people taking this tour, practically all of them loud and only partially interested Dutch people, then you get a clear explanation about the brewing process and about the brewing history. (In the last 5 years they have tripled capacity or something.) Other than that, itís a very impersonal tour, the fact that you have to get into your own car to drive to the bottling line, some kms away, doesnít help either. And then the biggest fiasco of this whole tour: it doesnít end in the shop, where you start the tour. So if you want to buy some souvenirs or some bottles, you have to drive from the local bar, where the tasting is done, all the way back to the shop. As it was already well past 5pm, we didnít take that risk of ending up outside a closed shop. What a commercial fiasco! I think the worst part about the tour, was that local bar. The music was playing incredibly loud, and was of the worst kind. A sort of "carnaval" music. No, donít think of Rio, youíre completely off chart, think of loud humpapa music, with bad vocals and repetitive chorus. And then, the beers. Oh my god. If I were brewer, I would not put my visitors in such a tormenting bar, but whatís more important: I would make sure that my beer would be served in good technical conditions! We tried the normal Achouffe and the Houblon IPA. Both of them were flat, not enough gas in it. The normal Achouffe tasted very metallic and both of them donít taste anything like I remember them. We didnít finish our first glass and gave away our 2 left over tokens to some locals at the bar. One of my worst experiences in brewery tours ever. But I guess if your target group is loud ignorant Dutch people, you can pull this off.

Nice place stucked away in the ardennes. Friendly personnel. Ok seasonal food at the brasserie, nothing to fancy though. Short but to the point tour of the brewery and the packaging facility. Unfortunatly you donít see everything from closeby, except for one installation. Afterwards some samples at a local pub.
