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.

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.
