came here to pick up crates we had reserved on two separate trips. Nice and quiet place with lots of bikers. The ordering process is unique but well done. Beer is slightly more price wise but worth it IMO. Worth walking around the abbey if you get a chance.

Whatís to say....waited in line for my 2 cases of "8". The In de Vrede was closed, so just killed time waiting in line.

Visited Late 2006. 3 crates of 8. 30 minutes in the waiting line. Funny and awesome experience!

So we went here right after In de Vrede to pick-up our to-go beers. Small shop you could walk into and purchase the beers. The limit was 6 per person (our group was 6, so we got 36 beers), and they were out of the 8, so we got a bunch of 12s and a couple of Blonds. Rather reasonable price-wise. Not much more to say beyond that... It was about 5 minutes altogether. We got our beers, got back in the car, and headed back to civilization.

The only place to get the best beer in the world, direct from the source. Some six packs available in the gift shop, and glassware gift packs.

I was so excited as I drove up the small country roads approaching the abbey the wife and kids were starting to show concern that Iíd finally lost the plot. Once there it canít be anything but a bit of a let down.. After so much effort the drive through is well a bit industrial and basic.. But they loaded two crates in the trunk so Iíll forgive them. Note the employees serving up were not monks .. My hopes of encountering a Sean Connery in The Name of the Rose lookalike were sadly dashed.

Fue toda una experiencia que el monje nos dejara entrar dentro del monasterio.Vimos unos cŠnticos matinales de los monjes,y depuse de tener unas charlas nos fuimos a degustar toda la gama al bar de delante.

The first time I visited around Thanksgiving í06. Was met by a nice monk who in his broken english told me we need a reservation. Spent the next three years trying to do that. I visited two more times, but never actually picked up beer from the monks only from the cafe across the street. The monastery is very beautiful and pleasant area nestled between country landscape and fields. Worth a visit even if you do not get their beer.
