Been here a few times. from the first time I had the feeling like I was coming home. Always greatly welcomed by one of the guys, amazing selection of beers nowadays, great atmosphere, great smell, great people, great beers. I’m a huge fan.
Always nice to be in a taproom of a brewery, but the alvinneboys hit it just where it matters. Beautiful vieuw over the brewhouse, tanks and barrels while enjoying so many different style beers! A must visit when you are in Belgium!
The Greatest host !!!!! and what a selection of beers!!!!! Fantastic moment !!!

Stopped by on a recent trip to BE where we hit up 11 breweries. Nice loft area looking down on the brewery. My experience differs from the other reviewers, as I felt I was walking in on a private party and was not offered any service, almost to the point of being ignored. I understand they are only open the first Saturday of every month (which it was). Not sure what was going on, but finally was able to get a few beers to try, which were all good. Wouldn’t bother going back.
been here almost a year ago ( april 2013 ) but forgot to rate it . we had a very memorable service .
before visiting, alvinne was, to me , a try-to-be-great brewery ( i know ) but visiting here deffinetly made me ashamed of ever thinking that . we drank some beers straight from cask, and they were freaking phenomenal . Their foeder is the best ! talked much to the brewers too, they are awsome guys . deffinetly one of belgian’s best
A very fun place to visit. This is a bottle shop, a brewery and a tasting room all in one. You walk in through what looks like a back door and climb a steep small stair. You wonder if you took the right door. The place is very “raw” and really feels like a backstore. First of all it is important to know that the bottle shop is not an Alvinne bottle shop. I’d say that Alvinne bottles accounted for no more than 5% of the total amount of bottles in the shop. They have a privileged relationship with Struise and this bottle shop is actually a much better place to find cool Struise bottles than the Struise bottle shop. Overall I’d say that the bottle shop has one of the most interesting selection I have seen in Belgium. Certainly in the top-5 selection I have seen in Belgium. Limited Struise, Alvinne, De Molen, a bunch of Danish brews, even cool American brews. They had a few beers in the tasting room but it looks as if they were having a friendly get-together so I did not interrupt. Just paid for my bottles (good price) and was on my way. Because of its unreal setting and selection I found it to be my most pleasant beer shopping experience in Belgium (twice I was in the country)
