Small farmhouse brewery in Luxembourg Province, sends 96% of its beers to the USA. Giselle, la serveuse artisinale, was extraordinarily friendly, as were the clientele. DanyP and a friend from Luxembourg (the country) showed me around the brewery, a cozy and interesting place, full of character. Two beers on tap when I visited, the regular saison and the Chocolat. Well worth the visit, for the beers on tap, and for the conversation! Bravo, Dany. The annual barbecue for charity, around the weekend of 15 August, is a hoot.

Soy is a small place, it can hardly be called a town. I did not even see a shop and tourist do not have to bother to take the detour to Soy. But, for beer geeks it is certainly worth a pilgrimage! What a place! Saison and Pissenlit on tap and in bottles. Black Ghost and the new Camembert Tour de France 2012 in bottles. Pissenlit fresh from tap was my first beer this day. A good choice! The brewer himself showed up and gave me a brief brewery tour. Interesting, and it is for sure a real microbrewery! And for those who wondering, he speaks English! If I only could stay a bit longer! But, my wife was eager to move on... (Visited July 5th 2012)

Odd place in the middle of nowhere. Old lady serves Fantome Citron and regular from draft. Calm and quiet. Only regulars. Only the normal Fantome to go. The Citron was something going completely wrong with syrup added. Limited opening hours. Not much English are spoken.

Turned up ’out the blue’ on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Sept 2008 and joined a brewery trip organised by a bunch of beer lovers from Brussels (thanks lads). They translated for me too, as Danny Prignon only does French (I think). The bar it’s self is very rustic and basic. There is motorbike above your head and a ghost is hanging around the door. The little garden/grass area at the front has one large oblong table, which appeared to be for the family. There is a very small terrace at the back, otherwise you sit in the main bar room with its bar, fridge and stairway to the brewery. I had the summer special, which was the standard Blanche with grapefruit juice added (Blanche Pampelmouse). The girls had the standard Fantom Saison, the only other beer on tap. As an aside, I couldn’t believe how much sugar he added to the beers, an incredible ammount in my opinion, but his beers are great, so what do I know?

Another one of those places that leave me going home happy but also proud of living in Wallonia. Great ride to Soy after a stop in Hotton for some shopping. Typical Belgian Ardennes village, not sure how one rater sees it as French. A matter of opinion, but my family is from the region, and it sure ain’t French. Fantome is a perfect 100 to me for it embodies what I love about a place where the brewer loves what he does, and does it because of the beer. Service, Dany is there, welcoming, a little reserved, his family helps around or is there at the brewery. Plenty of conversation about the region, the beer, etc. Dany definitely is a man of the region and will gladly chat about antyhing even not beer related. Atmosphere, beautiful region, small village, friendly customers, chat with locals, beside a few cars driving by, it’s quiet and typical of the countryside of that region. You can park by the church down the road and even go for walks or bike rides. That’s what I love about great brewery atmosphere. Simple yet effective. Price. How can you beat 6 bottles for 20€? and cheap draft beer. Selection? Two draft beers, three beers usually available in bottles ... perfect for the batch size Fantôme brews.

Great place to stop and enjoy a beer, then grab some bottles to go. Limited seating, but don’t think it gets busy. You can tour the brewery with large groups.

An essential visit. Ramshackle and atmospheric in the best Belgian tradition. Beer is the excellent regular Fantome plus whatever weird concoctions are currently being brewed. Excellent service from Dany and his wife. Highly recommended. Be warned that the published opening hours are purely theoretical.

If you have visit planned with DanyP the place is great and you will need a car Only Fantome products are available and take them as they are sometimes stellar and sometimes not. The house saison was amazing the day I was there and hope you can speak French.

It was really nice, meeting Dany, chatting with him about beer and brewing. Trying out some of the beers he had in stock and on tap, then chatting away with the regulars in the bar. It made for a very pleasant afternoon after the disappointments at Achouffe, Inter-Pol and 3 Fourquets. I’ll definitely come back!

I made a trip to this brewery about 1 year ago. I had contacted Dany beforehand and he was available on a Sunday for a tour and tasting. I was the only "tourist" but his niece was there too. They were both very friendly and helpful as we all got around our broken English and French very smoothly. We traded bottles and coasters and Dany was every bit the wonderful host. Highly recommended-email beforehand though.
