Stopped in here for a quick visit before a meal at then restaurant next door. Grabbed a few interesting bottles from Armand, and he was generous enough to give us a quick brewery tour despite him typically not doing them other than the first Saturdays of the month - thanks Armand! Armand is obviously extremely passionate about what he does and the quality of 3 Fonteinen products of course represents this. If you can work this into your trip along with a visit to the restaurant I recommend it, but itís not an absolute must.

Visited only once, when there wasnít much to do. Shared a beer or two, purchased some hard to get beers. Worth a visit once but itís not that special.

Nice little shop with the top products of 3 Fonteinen. Armand and his wife are very friendly. Good prices.

Nice shop and a nice looking place. Some of their beers can be bought there, but only about 7 of them. Theyíre saving all kinds of bottles for tasting in stead of selling them in the shop. What I really disliked though was the one or two bottle limit per customer on their own beers. Iím okay with a limit, but 1 bottle is just kinda sad, especially if itís a couple hours drive to get there. The staff was very nice and everything, but the limit will weigh on the score heavily.

This is for the shop only, since the brewery wasnt open for a tour and i just had a fast look inside. Small shop selling the 3 Fonteinen beers, spirits, jam, etc. Some merc, shirts, glasses, etc on sale aswell. Very low prices for the beers, less than 3Ä for the Oude Gueuze, and 5 for Golden Doesjel. Helpfull service. Will have to go back for the tour someday.

A must place to visit. A very interesting tour, and the shop has very moderate prices. A nice place to sample a few beers in the sun ourside, too. Liquid beer history.

Cool shop with derivated gueuze products (patť, jam, glasses, etc.) and well priced beers. The selection was standard when we got there, I grabbed Golden Doesjel. We had a nice little chat with Armand himself which was fun.

Stopped by on a day when they were giving guided tours to groups, but I was not with a group and do not speak dutch so couldnít really tag along. The shop was pretty well picked over, the only beers for sale were the 3F Geuze and some lager brewed at DeProef. The lady behind the counter was more interested in folding Tshirts than helping me. Pretty disappointing, but Iíll probably try again next time Iím in the area.

We went there on a Sunday morning. The shop was empty and were welcomed by Armand and his wife. The selection was quite small (Golden Doesjel, Oude Geuze, Beerseel Lager & Blond, Armand Spirit), but the prices were very good. There was also some nice glass availables. Thanks (!) to gEUS, we were able to do a brewery tour with Armand himself. He explained us his views on the lambic industry and the future of his brewery. He is really a passionnate brewer/blender. He then opened some very old Gueuze with us and shared his impressions about old gueuze vs young gueuze. Really a magical moment. The 3 Fonteinen Brewery is definitely a place to visit for any 3 Fonteinen / Lambic lover.

Very friendly helpfull staff, unfortunately not too many beers available for purchase. Must be wrong time. Also I was told they cannot keep up with demand, which I am not sure they appreciate that either.
