Nothing beats taking the tour with Chris on Sundays of this old brewery with its famous open fermenter, then sharing a few in the tasting room. All the clasics on draft and in bottles, plus an occasional surprise keep me coming back.

Visited a sunday afternoon for a tour and few drinks. The tour in english was done by the owner / brewer, and was highly informative and held in a funny, quite sacastic tone. The brewey itself was place in a old building, most of the equipment dates back to the 1st world war. In the barrelroom we where offered a smaples of 2 beers, Oerbier Reserva, and a high sour/acidic brew. The 5 € tour included 2 tapped beers in the taproom, Arabier or Oerbier. Some bottles avaiable aswell. Service doing the tour was good, a litlte unwilling or downright grumpy in the taproom. Crowd on the tour was a mixed group of tourists from Germany, France, US, etc. The taproom, and the nice beer garden behind it, had a good number of locals aswell. Fair / cheap prices.

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.

Beautiful location with ample room for visitors. I had imagined the place to be smaller but there is room to accommodate a lot of folks, comfortable seating with couches and low tables in the warehouse + a nice open wood fire inside to relax, sip a beer and read a book. Four beers on draft, + reserva in bottle. Oerbier pâté to eat. Very decent prices, friendly service. Kris was there and lives up to the bit of mad scientist imagery akin to that of Dany of Fantôme, if I had to take the Wallonian counterpart as example. He looked interested to chat, sits with you, then gets up all the sudden and leaves to later come back, pause with long silence and resume talking. What an experience. Too bad none of the beers are low abv.

A fantastic brewery and a fantastic place to visit and sample the beers following a brewery tour. The bar is cosy and relaxing and the staff are friendly. A great experience.

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!

Did a fun tour here through the cool brewery as guided by mum. Good value for money for sure. Tasting room has a good atmosphere. Didn’t try their food. Unfortunately only Arabier was available of all their beers. A real shame with such a brilliant collection.

Visited with friends the 31 January 2015. The brewery is on the main street of the village of Esen. As the beer the place is amazing. A really nice brewery with a great tap room. About the tap room this is really pleasant to drink a beer near to the fireplace with pieces of sausage or paté. I really recommend this place, this is clean and warm. About the beer there are 4 tap with Arabier and Oerbier and you can find also bottles of more special beer as Stille Nacht or Oerbier Reserva. The service is really friendly and you can meet also the brewer and discuss with him about beers! You can also buy some goodies from the brewery like shirt or posters! Really amazing, a muss to visit.
