Wonderful place with a fun atmosphere. All standard Dolle beers on tap and bottle, and some seasonal stuff. Can buy beers in boxes with 20 bottles for 28 euro’s, or sixpacks for 10 euro’s. Also this brewery is an art-gallery.

Camons  (284) Hasselager, Denmark | August 24, 2014
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.

Visited the brewery on a Sunday afternoon for the tour in English. Our tour guide was the master brewer himself Kris. He kick started the tour with his excellent and sarcastic humour. The brewery is like a living museum as things are done the old way here and Kris is proud about it. The tour was really informative & Kris explained various stages of brewing and in between the history of the brewery, the origins of the names of the beers etc:. The tour was followed by tasting of some excellent beers. They had the Oerbier & Arabier on tap. The tasting room also displays some art work of Kris. Do try the "pate" here. It blends in well with the beers. They almost had their whole range on bottle & was lucky enough to have a Stille Nacht Reserva 2010.. Will visit again for sure.. A really worth brewery visit.

Called in one Sunday and stumbled onto a tour of the brewery. The host was quite a character and a little eccentric. Great to delve inside and see how the brewery operates, also got to try a barrel-aged oerbier straight from the barrel although just 4 months old. The brewery bar has a nice feel and of course tasting De Dolle fresh from the taps is something else entirely! Great little brewery, a real gem.

That’s a brewery totally worth a visit. Very old school, one could even say a bit too old school. But I loved the ambiance and general feeling of the place; I really enjoy De Dolle beers, Kris is a fantastic and original host. The tasting room offers a lot of seasonal De Dolle beers on tap, and almost everything they brew in bottle. Loved it the first time. Loved it every time since.

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.
