Visited with a tour of the brewery. Tour ends with a tasting where four of the Chouffe beers were tasted. Shop with chouffe beers and merchandise. Tavern for when you are hungry or still thirsty.

Called in during a quick road trip around Belgium. Located in a beautiful part of the country, all rolling hills, forests, country lanes and cute old villages. The warm weather and clear blue skies certainly helped. The Chouffe brewery stands overlooking a tavern and visitor centre which was about to reopen after lunch. As it was a quick stop we didn’t have time for the tour, which would’ve lasted 45 mins, plus 45 mins for a tasting. Good if you’re planning an afternoon here I guess. The tavern was closed so I could’t try any draft. Gift shop has all manner of Chouffe related merchandise - I got a book covering the history of the brewery. There is a nice pond between the gift shop and brewery, governed by loud honking geese which you can walk around and probably crack open a Chouffe if you wanted. Nice place.

While still very tourist focused, it’s not as bad as I feared at all and I like how they offer a restaurant, tour and also a shop, with generous opening hours. (Shop opens at 10h and taverne at 11h.) They only brew a couple of Chouffe name beers, but at least all are available. Even got a new tick. Nice area if you’re into hiking/nature walks. We’re not but still not a bad visit. Prices are high though, I find, since you buy at the source.

Service sympa mais trop de monde en saison. La nourriture est moyenne mais la Chouffe blonde est bonne.

We just visited the shop and the tavern. Nice place but a bit futuristic but where I could taste some beers I couldn’t 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 I’ve 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 I’m 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 doesn’t look very interesting as you approach, but it soon turns into a dream. I can’t 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, I’ll 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 didn’t 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.
