Stopped in here recently after picking up 12’s from Westvleteren and had a wonderful experience. Through the courtyard and past the random brewing tanks you enter the hallway of an old school that is now De Stuise’s bottle shop. They obviously have all of the available Struise brews, but also some other random bottles (I picked up a de Molen brew while I was there.) On our visit, we met brewer Carlo who was kind enough to take us into one of the classrooms and give us a sampling of several of their beers (to include a Black Albert mixed with whiskey... interesting.) The Struise guys were very hospitable and helpful, and each of my group left with at least a case of beer. This was really the highlight of my trip to Belgium.

Located in an old todlerschool. Nice to sit outside on the terras. 30 changing beers on tap (at the moment 29 beers from Alvinne, Préaris and the Struise and one home-made lemonade). Possibility to buy some bottlle. Feels like an old pub atmosphere (without the music). Glasses come in 8/15 cl, decent prices! Nice to stop by!

F***ing AWESOME!!!!! This place is GREAT! First of all: this is more of a tap-room by the brewery, than a bottle shop - you can get on tap about 20 of their (constantly rotating) beers. And these beers are fantastic!!! This place is well worth of a special visit. It’s really that good.

Others have already commented on the ease (or otherwise) of finding the place. The tips on here are good, I will only add that you are in the right place if the cars in the street are Dutch or German-registered! On my visit at about 4pm the place was quite full, but the guys working the bar could not have been more helpful, taking the time to explain the beers and the collaborations behind some of them. I sampled a few 15 cl glasses at 2 Euros each, which I think is very good value indeed. The range was great, from oak-aged double IPA to brown sour and everything in between. My particular favourites were a low strength hoppy beer and the riporter. They only do beers, though, so if you have a driver like me, the only non-alcohol option is a glass of water! The shop is a couple of beers on a shelf. The tasting room is interesting, but the entrance area was a bit of a building site when we were there. I suspect the place will grow and develop over time. I would definitely go back - I loved it.

Very difficult to find as other have commented. What I will add is that the pin point on the ratebeer map is in the perfect place. Kasteelstraat is not a long street so remember it’s number 50 and you’ll have no problem. Very interesting place hidden away in Oostvleteren. As soon as you step through the door, you know you’re in a place for beer geeks. Vast selection of struise beers on tap. I tried Black Albert but would like to go back when not driving as there were plenty that i’ve never seen bottled. The chap serving me was helpful. Well worth the visit if you happen to be in the area. Just a shame the opening hours are so small.

D’après les autres commentaires c’est très difficile à trouver, mais ayant chercker sur Google Street View, j’ai trouvé tout de suite avec un tonneau en plein mileu de la cours. Le lieu est vraiment spécial, on a l’impression d’arriver dans un garage remplit de tonneau. Un intérieur qui tout simplement une école avec un tableau noir et 30 bes à pression, le jour où j’y suis allé 27 bières étaient proposées. Elles ne sont pas encore toute sur le site mais ça va arriver, le service est top et en français. Avec tout les renseignment que l’on veut par les brasseurs ! Excellente adresse.

Very difficult to find unless you visit here with a Belgian friend. No sign on the front door to a courtyard. You can see fermentation of STruise beers happening in the courtyard outside..inside, 30 draft lines with 25+ being STruise beers and others being guest taps. Small and large samples available and a small bottle shop. The staff was friendly, it was a nice place.

Located in Oostvleteren, in an old school. Actually very hard to find, because of the lack of any signs. You actually enter a regular door, which leads to courtyard, from which you finally enter the school/brewery. The taproom is located in a classroom with an authentic panel painting, showing the brew process. The atmosphere is very cosy, abandoned old school benches and tables are still standing there, where you are now able to enjoy your beer. You can also sit in their courtyard when the wheather is sunny, go to the next butcher and join a barbecue. They promise to have about 30 beers on tap, which contains a good range of their beer, you can decide between three different glass sizes, 8ml, 15ml and 33ml, which is very comprehensible, taking into account that they serve beer with an abv between 3.5 - 26. They also got some bottles and glasses for takeaway, but don’t rely on their internet site, as they don’t seem to care to hold it up-to-date.

Cool place in an old school, the bar was inside an old classroom, seating in the classroom as well as outside. Selection is good, tried Double Black 2012 and 2014 side by side however the website wasn’t updated with available beers as I was hoping for a couple more Black Damnation variants. Prices are vary good. A couple of beers available for take away.

Abit hard to find, no signs or anything to let you know there is a brewery here. But as we strumbled over Urbain early saturday it wasnt to hard. Upon entering the door there is a backyard with fermentions tanks, barrels, the Struise festival tap trailer, etc. 2 lines of tables where you can enjoy the beers.The tap room is in a old classroom with a blackboard explaining the brewing proces. About 20 taps, with a good mix of styles, old favorites, 3-4 different Pannepot, Elliot brew, some experimental bends, a few new beers, sours, session IPAs, and 2 vintages of Black Damnation - Double Black. Draft pours avaible in 2 sizes at very good value. Some bottles to take away aswell. Service was good, funny to be around, nice and informative about the beers. Didnt eat, but was told that there was barbecue earlier on, but it was finished when we came. Quite a big crowd, tourist and locals, that thinned out somehow later on, proberly becourse we stayed a hour or more after closing time. Was a very good visit and ill like to go back some time.
