One of the worlds great breweries is tucked within the schoolyard of a long- closed primary girls school, so when it is not visibly apparent from the street view, fear not. On this visit there were about fifteen tap lines available for tasting pours with some phenomenal options at excellent prices. The love within this operation is obvious and it was a great experience to be part of it for one afternoon.

Visited in the summer of 2013. The tastingroom had a beer course for a group so we couldnít get any samples. Bought a bunch of Struise beer from what might be the youngest beer salesman Iíve met so far. Was a nice bike ride from Poperinge with a stop at St Sixtus on the way.

Together with my girlfriend you need to know where its is not seen for along the outside edge that there is an old school when we arrived the classroom, I saw standing on tap beer or 16 on tap to taste the guest to the tap was friendly and knew a lot of it really is a dream place for me a good price for the tastings great atmosphere just a shame that they have nothing alchohol free to drink for my bob but Iím definitely coming back to taste

A must visit if you are in the area. Barrels of beer maturing outside, a nice presentation of the brewery and its history, and lots of beers on tap to sample.

Really cool place. The guys who run Stuise are great and one of them is usually present. They have something like 15-20 beers on tap for tasters and the value is fantastic. You can also buy bottles there for takeaway and, again, the value is great. In terms of atmosphere, this place is literally an old school, and it has that feel. In the colder months the place can feel a bit sterile and drafty, but I would imagine that itís beautiful in the summer. Definitely worth a visit.

I think this is where I rate the webshop, since itís listed under the "mail order beer" section. I ordered some Pannepot before the site went down. I donít have access to the new site anymore (if itís even around anymore) but my experience was positive. Pricing is pretty good on the bottles, at least compared to the US, but the shipping of course ruins it. I was shocked when the box arrived in a plastic crate that the bottles would be delivered to the store in. The bottles were clinking together all the way from Belgium but I guess that never bothered any of the customs officials or the postal workers since the box made it just fine. Of course the documentation all says "yeast samples". Beyond that I havenít had much contact with the Struise guys. I met Urbain at Borefts and had some email contact with him and Carlo about visiting the school while we were staying in Watou. Unfortunately it didnít work out and we werenít able to tour the school house. Next time.

First time visiting the brewery. I love the environment and how they use the history of the building as a school to teach people how they make their beer. Since struise is my favorite brewer itís quite obvious I give them a high rating.

No ambiance, no atmosphere, just a tiny and eerily quiet classroom of disjointed visitors. Many were scribbling their notes down, no doubt with a view to rating their beers later. Iíd been looking forward to going here for years but left disappointed with the experience. The taps are great value for money but the classroom is not somewhere youíd want to spend much time in. For serious beer nerds only.

Not much more to add. 10 or more Struise beers on tap, often new and experimental ones, bottles to buy. Yeah. We rented bikes in Poperinge and rode the 11 km or so to get here. Good idea if you are looking for a way.
