Leuke mooi plaats met een mooi klooster. Leuk winkeltje erbij met een leuke selectie voornamelijk Belgisch bier. Leuke plek als je in de buurt bent, maar zou er niet speciaal heen rijden.

I love this place. A school-like cafeteria and a bottle shop that also sells all manner of groceries and plastic horrors. The antidote to pretentious hipsterism and snobbish pub culture. Service is friendly and English is spoken.

Close to the Dutch border. This is a super place to buy Belgian beers.

Nice Achel beers on draft, good selection of glassware available. Large terrace which was packed with tourists. The beer ice cream did not taste like beer at all.

A nice brewery but a fair hike to get there by public transport! Nice selection of Achel beers, including two beers only available at the cloisters. The Trappist Blonde is lovely on draught. The beer shop is also impressive with a fair range and lots of glassware. Plenty of space to sit outside on a sunny day also.

tderoeck  (143) Gent, Belgium | November 19, 2011
Review is for the bar, not for the bottle shop, which in my opinion has very little to see with the monastery or the brewery. It’s cool that you can get the 5% beers. It’s less cool you can’t drink any of the others. There’s no service, just self service in what looks like a high school canteen. At least in the summer you can sit outside, but I guess in winter, when you have to sit inside it’s much less cosy. So, worth to check it out? Only if you desperately want to try the Achels 5% (which I did) and maybe stock up some bottles from the shop. But other than that, not really.

bierkoning  (270) La Tropica, Netherlands | July 27, 2011
Rustic monastery with a surprisingly large portfolio of quality beers (trappists, Dupont, quadrupel OA). A kind of canteen serves the 5% ABV tap beers. Service is minimal, environment is lovely, prices are quite acceptable. Therefore recommended.

ODB & I made the trip up by car to the middle of no where to find this pleasant little diamond in the rough. Great place to sit a taste the Achel Blonde (which is quite outstanding). The beer shop is surprisingly large with a lot of glassware. They have a pretty good variety of beer here as well. Overall, great trip, highly recommended!

Nice terras to sit on. Small range of light meals/snacks. They have their own beers available in the cafe and quite a good selection other belgian beers available from the abbey store, including a lot of trappists, abbij beers, gueze/fruit beers and other belgian ales. I would have thought the selection to be close to 200 diiferent beers.

Last time I was here is about 5 years ago. Within these five years they changed a lot. I remember that I bought a shitload of Belgian beers here which were kind of normally priced (some cheap, some expensive) Now they have just a tiny bit of different beers left. I heard monk Fustus (or brother Fustus) died and he was the responsible one for the beers that were imported. Since he died they shrimp their collection massively, unfortunately. Also the Abbey cheeses where not to be found, just one I saw. This was different in the past too. There’s no person that helps you, unless you ask for help, but there collection is so small that you don’t need any help. It’s a beautiful place, in a beautiful part of the Belgian/Dutch border and nature. Though it got too touristic. Overall it’s ok, nice nature, some ok beers and food, other memorabilia is sold in another store, so there’s anything for anybody.
