This rating is for both the shop and the bar/restaurant. Shop is very small, with a very low availability of their beers. Prices arenít that much better then regular beer shops. Not worth the effort of going over. Restaurant is cosy. Very quick and friendly service. Lots of locals. Possibility to have tasting flights, which is nice (5 for 9 euro). We had the burger, which was really fresh and well cooked, most certainly recommended! Overall, this is a nice place, stop by if youíre in the neighbourhood, but itís not worth a detour.

Brief walk from the city centre, perfectly okay walk from both stations. Closer to a major road etc. rather than a small street or something like I expected but that is just me. Mainstream decent wood appearance, decorated with the brewery logos. Tavern / Bistro feel to it. Focus seems to be completely on food, all seats were actually reserved for eating, I got a place to drink next to a barrel. If you are looking to eat here be sure to make a reservation. I glanced through the menu, no vegan options it seemed, more vegetarian options than usual it seems but all of them were very heavy on cheese. Even the crackers that I got with my beer tasted of cheese, enough that I didnít try a second one, I didnít double-check. Beers available are the regular Anker line-up with the addition their Pils which I have never seen before. Little new for me but some of the beers available, I rarely see on draft. They also have their whisky which is very delicious. Service was friendly & helpful. It was slightly weird that people who took the order couldnít accept my money etc. but that wasnít an issue, just a bit odd. Nothing special here but good for people looking for tavern-style food with some nice beers at good prices.

Na de tijd even in het proeflokaal van de brouwerij gezeten, aardige lokatie allen op loopafstand van het centrum. Even een Anker pilsje geprobeerd en daarna wat proefglaasjes met de overige bieren. prima service, van de overige klanten te horen gekregen dat het eten ook uitstekend was. net zoals de bieren tijdens de proeverij !

kraddel  (206) some beerplace , Belgium | July 6, 2014
Strange I havenít rated this yet . very tavern-style place, with many drafts from Het anker . Unfortunatly , nothing else than het anker , nor anything rare or vintage . Basicly, anything from them you can get everywhere else . Accept sometimes that they have 1 special draft . Service is nice and friendly though, the food appeared to be good as well, yet I did not eat here . Prices are average . Iíd like this to be more worth the effort, since you dont get to see anything special here, and you can drink these beers all over Mechelen ( and Belgium in general )

Visited on a Sunday afternoon. I donít think this place is on a lot of beer geeksí itinerary in Belgium because there are a lot of good places to see and generally not a lot of time to visit them on. I will however, strongly recommend this place. Firstly, I donít think the place entry does it justice - this is the Carolus brewery, with a restaurant and a hotel attached, as well as a bottle shop. We did the brewery tour which was great; one of the better ones Iíve been on actually. We got to see how small an operation Het Anker really is (6200 liters per brew) vintage brewing equipment, including their copper kettles and their very own koelschip (yes, before 1999 Carolus beers were chilled in a koelschip on the roof of the brewery). We also saw the aging whiskey which was quite nice. Then we had a decent lunch in the cafe (a bit pricy but tasty) with all their regular beers available in bottles or on tap with the easter beer special on tap and the Cuvťe van de Keizer available in bottles. The shop was also fully stocked with everything including their whisky which is quite decent by the way. Prices werenít wholesale low, but decent. It is conveniently situated on the ring in Mechelen (between Brussel and Antwerpen) and parking is available nearby. Check it out!

Located at the ring of Mechelen. Went there with the whisky weekend. Nice athmosphere, but the waitress was really unfriendly. In the weekend, itís best to make a reservation if you want dinner. The menu was pretty good and of course served with their beers and whisky. Went there last summer as well (when I was on a biking trip). The service was better back then.

We (me and Loz) visited here on Saturday 8th February 2014 which turned out to be a particularly wet and windy day. Unfortunately we were unable to go on the brewery tour as we were unaware that we could have done this simply by pre-booking, never mind it will give us a good reason to re-visit :-) The tap toom/brasserie was modern, smart and we liked the layout with high wooden chairs & tables. The staff were friendly and helpful and beer choice fine though limited to the Het Anker range clearly. Prices were excellent and beer very good. It is situated by the ring road and yet still very close to the centre, the hotel, beer shop and brewery are all on the same site. In fact the hotel prices for a room looked pretty good value, now just need to find a campsite local to Mechelen to find an alternative to Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges
