We ran into Urbain Coutteau, the brains and the brawn behind Struise, at De Dolle Brouwers, and he took us back to the schoolhouse for an amazing tasting session with three of his beer interns, Robin, Arnaud and Carl. He generously shared some Earthmonk from the cask, as well as a bottle of Dirty Horse that was older than 5 of the 7 people drinking it! His store selection includes most of the Struise range, and some interesting others, such as De Molen. We also brewed a batch of Pipedream with him and his students at Alvinne the next day. An unforgettable experience! P.S. If you want to know what Urbain looks like, check a bottle of Tjeeses (the Belgian label). "Life sucks....but not here!"

This is the holy grail of the beer industry, surely. They serve some eye opening beers here. On tap. The beer quality is through the roof. There are also beers to take out. You can buy different beers in the shop at extremely low prices. They also have glasses for you to buy and hopefully, I pray, t-shirts at somepoint. This little place is like a paradise. You get your education on beer in the classroom. You get your education on your pallet at the same place. Itís very rare to experience such awesome hosting with excessively fine beers as these. Thanks, Carlo and Urbain.

Apart from sitting at the Struise farm drinking Pannepot on draught and eating ostrich steaks, this is the best place Iíve been. Urbain and Carlo give you the glory of their knowledge, advice and their beer whilst you sit and learn a whole load of intricasies about brewing, bottling, distribution, flavour, cooking, music and art. The highest accolade I can give it is that washing the glasses up at the sink during the tasting still feels like an honour. I wish I lived next door.

Our school project about beer became an unforgettable experience thanks to Urbain. In these classrooms Iíve created a gigantic view on beer and became a true enthousiast. This all happened thanks to the magnificent environment but nevertheless thanks to Urbain himself. From theoretical brewing to practical tastings fresh from his own stock. The eyecatcher was an old bottle of Dirty Horse from the original barrel that he generously shared with us and some American beer lovers we ran into at the Dolle. This truly is a beer heaven and like Urbain said it: "Life sucks ... but not here!". A must go!!

We visited for the first time in April 2011. Not the easiest place to get to, but I assure you it is worth it. It is surreally set in an old abandoned school. We were greeted by the very generous Carlo in a school classroom. We spent the rest of the day chatting and trying the impressive selection of De Struise beers on offer, with the particular highlight being the Double Black from a decanter, via keg. We also had a guest appearance from Urbain, who was very busy brewing at the time. They also stock an impressive selection of De Molen, Brewdog, Southern Tier and Mikkeller amongst others. We also met quite a few like-minded beer enthusiasts. The best beer destination ever? Quite possiblyÖ.

You can pretty much insert any of the previous reviews "here." An amazing place to visit - even better over a couple of days. A must visit if in the area.

The Struise Cafť / Shop is an former old school building. The place looks nice ant the ambiance is great. Carlo is a perfect host and with every beer het tells a story or do some explantion about the beer itself. In one of the classrooms they do beerseminares for groups. At the interance of the school is the shop, with lots of Struise beer, beers from De Molen, Alvinne etc...
