Mooi rustig klooster met winkel en klein restaurant. Duidelijk is dat men niet voor het grote publiek gaat maar een andere levenswijze volgt. Daar op lettend is dit een uitstekende lokatie.

This is a combined review, for the self service restaurant and the shop. Restaurant is OK, self-service, the local 5ís on draught. Prices are OK. Not much to be said here. The shop isnít really connected to the monastery I think. Decent selection of some Belgians and Trappists. Bought some glassware. Not really recommended.

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.

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. Itís cool that you can get the 5% beers. Itís less cool you canít drink any of the others. Thereís 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 itís 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.

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!
