Rastacouere  (651) Montreal, Quebec | November 8, 2011
The GPS took us through a few miles of tiny campaign roads, too narrow for two cars to face each other, in order to get to this improbable place, in a miniature industrial park. It must be pointed out that they moved earlier this year. Once you step in, you enter like youíre home, no one is there to greet you, but you hear a few voices coming from far away. Brewery smells invite you to step up the stairs where youíre forced to walk through the beer store area where they stock only the finest, maybe less than 200 products, but all top-notch stuff and a very heavy proportion of imports for a Belgian beer store. You keep walking on and reach the brewery, no longer the picobrouwerij of the beginnings and you gain access to the loft, a few stairs up and giving view on the brewery. This bar area can probably sit 50 people or so for events. I guess events must be terrific with the passion and friendliness that the owners showed us on a very ordinary October early Wednesday. We tried a pretty good Morpheus Extra on an almost empty stomach. It was fun to meet the very accesible owners though. Frankly, reaching Alvinne is quite a detour from most beaten tracks and I suppose that this near-pilgrimage helped bumped up their place ratings, and so did their events which seem to be quite a pull. I loved visiting, the guys were excessively friendly and welcoming, the beer store had tons of stuff we wanted to buy, but I donít quite believe it deserves to be a top 50 beer place in the world. For an event though, I would definitely like to be there.

Visited the new brewery in Moen. Incredible new set up in an older style factory-warehouse building but obviously with a lot of work went into remodeling the interior and give it a very modern brewery. Brand new equipment will expand Alvinneís capacity. A nice loft-tasting room overlooks the new brewery while keeping a Belgian feel to it. A 100L keg-pump allows them to pump straight from the tank to the bar and serve beer as fresh as you could get. Of course, service is always top notch, with Glenn and Davy as hosts. The place to go for the Alvinne beers along with a very good selection of guests beers in the beershop which is also being remodeled to allow people to shop. Good things from one of Belgiumís leading beer innovators. A small operation that keeps growing at its own pace while always keeping a very friendly atmosphere. Unlike bar or store this is the place where the magic happens, and Alvinne deserves a perfect score for their hard work.

(refers to the old place in Heule) The "zolder" is always a nice place to visit. Good atmosphere, both due to the brewers and the other visitors. Thereís always something nice to eat, but usually limited to only 1 thing. Lots of special beers in the shop, both Belgian and import, which makes it interesting for both foreign visitors as well as Belgian ones. Letís hope the new place in Moen will be at least as nice!

Well, didnít visit, but did order beer. Glenn went out of his way to help, and sent the bottles quickly and well packed. He didnít object to my quite oldfashioned way of paying the bill. Even put a few extra in when one beer I ordered was unavailable. Not cheap, but worth the money. Recommended. Visited the ACBF 2012. Great venue, great organisation. Beers in the shop were not too expensive.

went here for the Pre-ZBF in 09í. Awesome little place with lots of character. Great array of Alvinne brews on tap and a really good bottle shop for the size. Belgium and the US are well represented and itís apparent that this breweries friendship with others lands some really nice bottles in the shop. The brewers and staff here will bend over backwards to show you a good time. Top Notch!

Pretty sweet hole-in-the-wall place in a neighborhood. Glen and Davie are exceptionally nice and let us try tons of their beers from taps and bottles. The place has a "loft" of sorts with barrels, a bar, and a small but pretty wicked beershop. Lots of very hard to find stuff like BA Mikkeller Brunch Weasels, BA Mikkeller Blacks, Cantillon Fou Fone (probably gone by now), all of their beers of course, 3F, Cantillon, and actually a good amount of American stuff that you cannot find anywhere in the US like Three Floyds (not kidding). Loads of Struise, De Molen. The whole experience here is sweet but the bottleshop is pretty much superlative. Looks like Olbutikken inside.

Interesting destination but some beers we had were not in good condition.
