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 Carlo’s 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 possibly….

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. You’ve got to go here if you’re 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 you’re 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.

The beer seminar was like going back to school but with good beer in front of you instead of boring books.

Don’t expect a brewery tour, expect a personal Q&A with delicous tasting of whatever is ready from De Struise at that particular time. We liked it a lot! Even a ’left over’ mixture was served. Besides most of the beers from themselves (Pannepot wasn’t available the time of year) they offer some others such as those from De Molen and a Westvleteren gift pack. Prices are very low up to pretty expensive.
