The old school is a very good place to visit if you are in the area. Carlo and Urbain are very friendly and youíll probably get the chance to taste some fine beers there, from struise of course but not only. The shop itself is very small, but fulled with treasures from Struise, de molen , sometimes americqan breweries as well...

A visit to Struise Brouwers followed my morning at In De Vrede. I spent a few hours drinking and talking about everything beer-related with Carlo and some other visitors. When I walked in, Carlo said "so what do you want to try?" and gestured to a couple coolers full of different Struise Beers. Very quaint, humble atmosphere that perfectly represents the scope and attitude of Struise brewing. Carlo was incredibly friendly and generous, and there was a great variety of beers available to try. They were out of a few rare beers (Dirty Horse, Aardmonnik and Aardnon beers), but that hardly mattered. This visit was by far the best beer experience I have had in Belgium!

Shit man, whatís to say that hasnít been said? Urbain found us lodging, shared incredible beer throughout the night, bought a grill just so we could cook on July 4. Whether or not you are a fan of his beer, the company and experience of hanging with him is unparalleled, his passion visible in all elements and goodwill evident in everything he does. The atmosphere is really cool with the classrooms, beers in pretty much every room, a soccer goal outside, shops nearby if hungry. Damn great place, even better experience, and all thanks to Urbain. Voila!

Small little place with a small shop, offcourse mostly stuff from Struise itself ... but quite allot from the molen too , and a bit of danish and american brews .... Carlo came to welcome us and tell us a bit about the brewery and whatís happening these days , very amusing and as always good chit chat with a great guy :-) Urban was working very hard so he didnít have time for a meet up , but thatís no big deal ... rather small place to what i expected but i donít think they need something bigger ... overall good place and deffinitly worth a visit for fans of the struise just like me !

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.

This place is unique and excellent. No cafe as such but we attended one of Carloís tasting tutorials with a Belgian hen party!! Very entertaining. Struise beers and others from Alvinne, Molen etc are available to take away, but beware as some of the prices are a bit steep. Highly recommended. Also try the Witte Paard pub near the church for food and the perfect Belgian pub experience.

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.

Absolutely awesome. Biked to the Old School from Poperinge with my girlfriend, and shared a couple hours chatting and drinking beers with Carlo. Then was able to buy a few Cuvee Delphines, Pannepot Reservas, a couple de Molens and Alvinnes, and Black Albert, all for awesome prices. They packaged it up right there at the store so it would be safe on my flight back to the US. Youíve got to go here if youíre in Belgium.

Glad the Brothers finally made this change and allowed for breweries to be reviewed... Located in very very small town on a non-descript street in Oostvleteren. This is the epitome of small town rural Europe. The school house opens at 2 so plan accordingly. The school house contains its new brewing equipment moving in, a class room, and an office. When you first walk in lined against the wall are tons of De Struise beer and rare De Molen ticks for sale, great prices. Below the beers are display shelfs showing off tons of rare beers they have been brought. The atmosphere is nostalgic and awesome, if not a touch too cold on the day we were there... As we walked in we were greeted by Carlo, one of the owners and the main entertainer of guests. He lead us back to the office where we met Urbain and shared a Mikkeller Jackie Brown. Urbain had some work to do and sent us on a trip to Westvletern with beerpirates to pick up his order of 3 crates of Westy 12! Westvletern is 6km away, located in farm country, beautiful... After we got back form Westy we spent a good 3 hours in the classroom with Carlo tasting every De Struise beer they had. The whole time Carlo provided great insight on how they came up with the beer, name, bottle designs, and general brewing knowledge like how they referment the beer to carbonate it when bottled. Towards the end Urbain showed up and spent plenty of time with us. Additionally, Urbain told us about a excellent bed and breakfast right down the road which was a perfect place to stay. Bottom line if youíre in Belgium you have to go here and hit up both De Struise and Westy. It is immensely informative, incredibly company and conversation with two very smart people, and great drinks.
