Very cool brewery with an all-copper brewhouse (including mash filter) dating from I think 1946. old dirty building but in a cool way. Got a great tour from the owner and then is was down to the bar for tasters before having a very nice lunch a the restaurant. Some of the best beers in Belgium as far as Iím concerned, and a wide range at that. Their blond beers are outstanding as are all their strong beers. The fruit beers are more just interesting. The food was really good actually, which I was surprised with for some reason. Hopsinjoor on tap at the brewery is mind-blowing stuff.

Took the guided tour of the brewery. It was really informative, fun and highly interactive. Good selection of beers on tap and bottles. The classic being the best. Buying the beer from the beer shop is the best deal here.

Obviously they are limited to the Het Anker beers as its their brasserie, but when most of the beers are this good whats wrong with that? Had a lovely Flemish beef stew cooked with Gouden Carolus, and the Gouden Carolus range of beers, particular the two Cuvee van de Keizers are excellent. Could be a little cheaper in the brasserie but its shop next door is excellent value.

Beautiful old cafe, actually the whole brewery is pretty impressive. Classic stuff. The breweryís whole range is available which certainly is impressive, though on my visit the beers were served disturbingly cold. I canít think of a single other serious beer place in Belgium which has done that. Weird. Didnít eat, unfortunately.

Service and food were ok. A few vegetarian options. A little noisy but ok to visit with some friends after a visit of the brewery and taste the beers. **

Smart and attractive brewery tap with excellent service and, unlike some others, not ruined by itís recent renovation. Didnít try the food but it looked nice. Beers obviously limited to Het Anker.

Visit 15/05/11 with the Gentse Biervereniging. Did the tour, had a nice meal. Service was pretty slow, maybe because we were a group or maybe because it was weekend, but still. Shouldnít happen. Nice selection, Het Anker does of course have a very wide range of different beers, one for every occasion. The only thing they miss is a sour. ;-) Food was ok, nothing too fancy. Maybe a bit pricey though.

Good place to try different Carolus beers. Had the X-Mas beer, which was excellent and very different (licorice!).Beer shop offers very good value. So does the hotel, which is basic, but tisdy and clean.
