I was visiting the surrounding area and I had to get the Westvleteren beer. So I phoned a few times until I was sure to get the Westvleteren XII. At the place the service was efficient and quickly. We tried to go to the reception center but we were short of time and there was too many people. But we shall be back.

A pilgrimage for any true beer lover. I had a one day window to pick up some of the famous beer on a day trip to Belgium. Luckily when the calendar came up for that week they were selling westy 12 on the Monday I was going. Now I just had to get through on the phone line. Didn’t manage it on the first day but got through on the second day of booking. On arriving at the Monastery I was surprised how in the middle of nowhere it was. There’s a modern cafe to drink the beers and buy whatever 6 packs they have available as well as the cheese they produce. Overall the pick up was very efficient and impressive so now I’ve done it, I’d definitely do it again. Website was a the hardest thing to figure out when to call to book.

The monastery itself doesn’t offer much to the beerlover unless you are lucky enough to manage to call ahead and book a crate or two. A beautiful monastery where you can stand outside and look at the wall. Still worth it just for being close to such a legendary beer place. Walked around and found a small shrine in the woods just north of the main buildings. In the Vrede can have bottles for sale and is a easier place to pick up a few Westys then the monestary itself.

Diseño moderno. Con una tienda de recuerdos a la entrada. La cerveza que sirven la 6, 8 y la 12 son de reciente embotellado y aún no están maduras. La única que se sirve bien es la 6. Para comer tienes pâtés y queso. Tienen una agradable terraza que si no llueve se puede disfrutar. Hecho para turistas

Deep in the Flemish rural land lies the famous abbey of St. Sixtus. The place looks to modern, but the beers are great of course. The food is nice as well, especiialy the Hommelpaptaart.

The only place to get the world famous Westvleteren. Hard to order via the phone booking. Service at pick-up was good.

The only place to get the best beer in the world, direct from the source. Some six packs available in the gift shop, and glassware gift packs.

Visited this a couple times with reservation. It’s a very beautiful place, as much as you can see. First visit was in 2006 and realized at that time I needed a reservation to get the amazing beer. Will try to get back as many times as I can before I leave Europe. I must see for sure!!

Located right out in some beautiful countryside it’s certainly worth the pilgrimage to see.

I was so excited as I drove up the small country roads approaching the abbey the wife and kids were starting to show concern that I’d finally lost the plot. Once there it can’t be anything but a bit of a let down.. After so much effort the drive through is well a bit industrial and basic.. But they loaded two crates in the trunk so I’ll forgive them. Note the employees serving up were not monks .. My hopes of encountering a Sean Connery in The Name of the Rose lookalike were sadly dashed.
