Small bottle shop / gift shop infront of the brewery. Selection is the Bernardus beers, that easily can be found else. Had to be noted, that if will be hard to find them at prices to match this place. Loads of swag aswell, glasses, shirts, etc. Okies service. Didnt tour the brewery or visit the B and B, that is said to be excellent.

Bit disappointing. Little corner shop at modern brewery. Did not sell single bottles, only pre-packed assortments or by crate. Still managed to buy a beer not yet on the list. Service is very pleasant, which made it still a nice visit.

Visited October 2012 with chinoskillzian and womencantsail.

Not sure if this place listing is only for the gift shop or also the hotel but the gift shop isnít much to see. You can probably talk your way into a tour but the gift shop is really just for visitors at the hotel next door since, like many places in Belgium, people donít like to work and there is only someone at the desk when they feel like it. They have plenty of stuff to take home as souvenirs like glasses, bottle openers, shirts, aprons, a flag (I got one), and beer. The price of the beer almost made me cry. A case of 24 330ml Abt 12ís costs, wait for it, 25 euro (plus deposit). If I had access to some free space in a shipping containerÖ They also have magnums of the 12 that they produce once a year as it turns out. Very cool but my suitcase was already full (and I mean full) of beer so I scrolled past. Now, the hotel next door is pretty awesome. This is probably the coolest hotel Iíve ever stayed in. Theyíve taken the old brewers mansion and turned it into a bed and breakfast. There is a fridge in the lobby/library with a lot of St Bernardus bottles along with some glassware and bottle openers and a tip jar.

This place is fantastic! B&B connected to the brewery with fine amenities and reefers filled with St Bernardus product in the common area. Beers that are certainly world class. Staff went above and beyond in helping select and load a fairly large order from the brewery. Located in a beautiful rural area rich in World War I history and also very near other world class breweries. I canít speak highly enough of the entire experience. We are already planning our return trip.

Pre booked and did the brewery tour.Cost 12.50 euros but excellent value film about the brewery in English, walk around and tastings of all the beers. Best of all include in the price was a gift pack of the four beers and a glass. Rating as given but almost unfair to rate this as a pub.

Stayed here last week with my family while travelling through Belgium. Excellent B&B and very accomodating. Our room was top notch especially with 2 children, ages 8 and 10. It was cool to be right next to the brewery and made a great location to visit other places in the area like St. Sixtus, Poperinge, and Ipers.

Beautiful accommodations in this small, rural town. Right next door to the brewery and beer shop. Price is pretty good, the service is top notch, and itís just a very nice place to be. You can also arrange for brewery tours, which I think cost 12.50.

About the hotel, common space and lobby is very high quality but the room is a little sleazy. Though Sint Bernardus fan will have the satisfaction of visiting here.

La brasserie St Bernardus fait parti du patrimoine brassicole belge! Leur ABT 12 est un produit exceptionnel. Le lieu est magique.

This is the house of the former St Bernardus brewer, who retired in 2002. Itís adjacent to the brewery, connected by a door through the kitchen. Itís now a B&B with very nice rooms and an excellent breakfast. 90 Euro for a double when we stayed in September 2008, and the entire range of the brewery, all beers, is included in the price - as much as you like! You can drink it in the brewerís living room, or in his enclosed patio, or garden. Tours of the brewery are available on request - be sure to ask for a day that they are actually brewing.
