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.

Souvenir mémorable, brasserie de charme ardennais et un maître-brasseur atypique. Visite et dégustation sur place conseillées. J’y retournerai volontier

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)

Went to Fantome by myself today, sent Dan an E-mail yesterday asking when it would be ok to stop by and had a reply very quick that I could go today. Gave me a brief tour of the place then let me hang out and have a few beers off tap (both were great) and watch he and his wife bottle some beer as well. Left with a nice case full of different examples of Fantome to enjoy at home.

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!

Visited on a Saturday during our recent trip to Belgium. Emails were exchanged with Dany ahead of time and he said to show up at 2 on a Saturday and he would show us around. Drive from Brussels took us about an hour and the area was absolutely stunning. Tons of farm land and nice little local town we hit up just before hitting the brewery. Dany along with his sister and mom showed up and got the tasting room opened up then invited us in. Two beers on draft, the Noel and standard Saison. We got one of each then followed Dany into the back and he gave us the tour of his brewery from start to finish. We talked about his most recent contract brew, Magic Ghost, and he told us his solution for making it green as requested. We asked him if we could buy any and he only had a couple of things available in bottles, but said he had a keg and happily put it on for us to try. What a treat that was! The Ghost is serious grooving! We ended up finishing our beers and then buying some bottles to take home. Great experience and one of the top highlights of my Belgium trip. Thanks again Dany!

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.

This place is legendary! Dan is the man! A can’t miss location on any tour in the Ardennes, Dany with his unassuming, affable and modest manner makes this place a favourite and a real experience! Great atmsophere and a great part of Belgium to be in. Well done Dany! A true Artisinale brewery. Oh and Dany also sells great chocolate made locally. andy@bier-mania.com

A very small brewery with bar in the Ardennes. This is the most artisanal brewery you can think of. The ambiance and the atmosphere are rustic, familiar, nice, not only in the tavern, but also in the brewery. Excellent, friendly service, Dany and the lady that was there were really nice. Two beers on tap, some bottles and some other non alcoholic beverages in the fridge. Lost in the Ardennes, not easily reachable, but a place that deserves a visit or more.

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.
