I have visited this place three times and just realized that I never rated it. It’s out in the country and difficult to get to if you are not driving. Located at the abbey gate, it dispenses all Westvleteren products that are available (they run out sometimes). Other than that, this is a fairly inauspicious cafe that also serves light fare such as cheese plates. However it is the least expensive place to procure a relatively undistributed outstanding beer. It’s a tourist spot, not a geek place.
Un endroit magique pour les amateurs de bières. A quelques pas de l’abbaye de st Sixtus, vous trouverez une boutique vendant les produits de cette abbaye dont les 3 bières des moines de Westvleteren. Un restaurant permet de goûter ces bières et les produits pour un prix acceptable. Le service est attentionné. Une belle adresse.
I’m giving "In de Vrede" a high food score for two reasons: First, the grilled ham and cheese sandwich "Croque in de vrede" is the best you’ll ever taste. Second, their icecream with Westvleteren 12 is magnificent. Besides the beer served here, these 2 reasons alone are worth a visit.
The service is pretty quick, but it shows the apathy of serving so many people every day.
On a busy sunny day, or a calm cold day, it is always special to come and see that people from all over the world come here.

Heaving canteen right out in the sticks. I drank a bottle of their beer, but got flustered and asked for ’a 10 please’ - a beer which clearly doesn’t exist. So I’m assuming I drank a 12. Anyway it was lovely and I supped it whilst sitting in the sunshine and staring across Belgian fields. On arrival there were notices up explaining that they had no beer for sale. By the time I left however, beer was for sale. So I got a box of 12 and a box of 8 - which pleased me enormously. Surely an unmissable treat, if you are anywhere near this part of lovely Belgium.
locale di mescita della famosa Westvleteren, dove si possono bere le 3 tipologie. Niente di che l’ambiente e il servizio ma ne vale la pena passare per la storicità e per assaggiare la tanto ambita birra
