Unique location, amazing beers on tap, I think they have about 25 beers on draft, maybe even more. You get a short explanation about each beer when you order. Super friendly dudes at the bar. They sell Struise beers as well (duh) at reasonable prices. Some hard to find Struise beers are sometimes for sale. Check the openings hours! I wish they would be open a full day, or 2 days a week.
A must visit place if in West Flanders, but I'm not sure it's 100 rating stuff, place is a tad geeky, but the beers are excellent, available from the small multi tap bar or to take away from a shop set up in a corridor. Service and ambiance was good & thankfully it wasn't to busy the afternoon I visited.
This place is so welcoming that you don't want to get away from it. People here is like a big company - family and makes you feel so comfortable. Enjoy here some of De Struise gems. Urbain & Carlo thank you for being such great hosts and I really can't wait to be back ! Beer Temple !!!
I've been coming here on a regular basis since it opened, so time for an update since my last rating was 8 yrs ago.
This place is unique and excellent and W. Flander's essential beer experience for 4 special hours on a Saturday afternoon. Carlo is a fantastic host and the 20 or so beers on draft are always interesting and sold in small measures (8 or 16cl) which is just as well considering the strength of some of them.
Beers are also available to take away but are very expensive and I no longer bother after a couple of explosive/infected surprises.
Another criticism would be the toilets which are terrible. Nonetheless, truly special and highly recommended.
Also try the Witte Paard pub near the church for food and the perfect Belgian pub experience.
