Franchement je suis un fan absolu de cette brasserie, et ce qui fait autrement plus plaisir, c’est que les gens sont à l’image de leurs bières. Fantastiques ambiances, accueil, la ber est chouette et la terasse est sensationnelle, les prix sont fous... (et en plus on n’a pas du payer deux tournées) ma seule frustration c’est de pas y être allé plus tôt pour goûter les autres tueries. En plus les français sont rares et donc super bien accueillit !

Most certainly worth a visit. Very friendly people, great beers, good service, good prices. Kris sometimes seems a little grumpy, but he’s always willing to make a little chat!

been here a year ago , never seemed to have rated it . very friendly service, selection is just the regular dolle beers ( plus the snr10 , since we were there for the release ) people here were very kind though. even offered to pick me up at the station , before i fixed a ride there .. also, they had these pralines made zith oerbier . i’d go back for these alone ..

Great people and a great little cozy place to enjoy few of Belgiums finest beers. They even have some food to soak up the beers. Paté, dry cured sausage and dried fish. So simple but so right.

The most fun and traditional (at the same time) brewery tour ever had. Kris and his wife are maybe the most passionate persons I haver met and the atmosphere that you can feel here is incredible!! The selection on tap and bottle is seasonal, but kris was in the right mood and opened for us and his brother some gems! If you come to Belgium and you don’t visit De Dolle you must be crazy!!!! Better to have a car...

The temple of beer creativity and tradition, lovely place. Kris the head brewer is a creative an passionate beer man, his wife and mother helped us after the tour with the beers on tap. He also let us taste a couple of his reserva beers (oerbier in Bordeaux barrels) directly from the barrel.. Amazing! The location is perfect, colorful and in the nature, there are also a couple of really good snacks availables. The best brewery in the world!

Decent size drinking area that housed us after the tour by Kris. Okay selection, but they were missing some of their regular offerings. No biggie. Price is fair given that you are paying for the nice atmosphere as well. Tour was nice. Walked past the fully stocked cellar hiding a lot of their older and special beers.

My second trip to Belgium made me realize that I forgot to review this place from my first trip there in 2006. One of my favourite Belgium souvenir. I got there through private transportation but be ready for a long walk from the nearest train station. Tours on Sundays only and I recommend it. The tour has no technical information whatsoever. Don’t think you’ll learn anything about De Dolle brewing tricks. The tour is more a history lesson of the brewery. Given by a 150 year old grand mother it was totally unreal. Very very cool. Then you can drink at the brewery pub. I was served Arabier and Oerbier by the brewer himself. He was wearing a shirt that I didn’t think anyone who dare wear in public. This place is unreal. Their beers are unreal. You must visit if you love De Dolle.

Visited this 2 weeks ago with Dennoman, took the train from antwerp ,a 2 hour drive and then it was 6minutes of busdriving so actually pretty do-able if you don’t want to look for a designated driver ...
Took the tour with Kris ’s mother ( who i believe is 96 at the moment !! ) And it was great fun, she sure knows allot about the brewery and the ingrediënts used, and she sure knows how to get the show going.
Went there offcourse to pick up a bottle of SNR 2010, and we were able to taste some beers on draft like fresh Arabier, really good btw ! and the SNR 2010 and regular stille nacht on tap, really jummy ! the food altough it’s only local made sausage and Paté made with oerbier but i just love these plain simple foods !
Kris and his wife were a little bussy at the time to actually chat with them and we only had a good 3 hours with the 45min tour included before we had to go back to the station. but then again there were allot of visitors and offcourse customer for the SNR 2010 so i don’t blame them :-) very good place to visit !
