Well off beaten tracks and accessible either by elaborate combination of public transport or a very long walk, easy to miss as it is hidden in an industrial complex and very modesty signposted. Opening hours aren´t too great, either and I was a bit dissapointed by a limited selection of draught beer. Yet it is a great place where impressive beers are brewed and it was very encouraging to see a well-mixed audience that included a number of local lads beside beer geeks. Great and lovely service pushes te palce up.
Nice little taproom in the brewery (you can look at the hall with the brewing equipment though the windows). They also have some merchandise and sell there own beer. Apart from the opening hours a very nice place. To find it you must wander across a parking space at an industrial building and find a door where the name of the brewery appears.
Nine of their regulars were available to buy, or taste on the premise on bottle or from tap. Eight were (reasonably) well distributed, one special release. Friendly enough service, but it is really a brewery in actual, not a tasting room. Expected a larger selection to be available TBH, a bit of a dud. Prices are great though. Cash only!
Hard to find. Ambiance - well it is a "pub", tasting room by the brewery, nothing fancy. Selection was good, not all beer available, but most of them, few on taps. Service was ok, nice and friendly, we came during hours that brewery worked, so we waited few minutes for someone. In overall - if you are in Brussel it is a must.
Did a brewery visit with the Gentse Biervereniging a while ago (this wasn’t a place on RB back then). Very nice tour, had a bunch of samples of their beers. Alas not a single special release was available, which was kind of a pity. If you know a beer society is coming to visite you, months in advance, why not keep aside a special release, even if only just one! It’s not like we’re a soccer club or something, who don’t already know all of your regular beers... Oh well, solid beers, very friendly host. What more to say?
Had to go and hunt for someone to serve us, but to be fair they;d been busy setting up thei rnew bottling line. Joelle happy to stay and give us a quick run through the range of beers, despite being end of his shift. A couple of collabs and reulars on draught with about ten beers available in bottle to drink in or take away. Consistent pricing regardless of beer strength. Bit out in the sticks but well worth the visit to try de la senne stuff at source.
Stooped by on our Belgium trip, and yes even with GPS, you need to do a little hunting as it sits behind the building off the street. Not much of a sign, but we knew we were there. Got there right when it was opening and staff seemed to be trickling in, but one of the brewers took the time to get us going and as it got busier, service was good. Nice sampling of their beers, all good.

This place really let me down... Went there on a weekday off. Only time you can visit, considering their opening hours. Place is not that easy to find. Inside you have a nice view on the brewery, and there’s a cosy interior. However, not really welcoming. Possibility to buy t-shirts and 6packs/crates of their beer. But very limited when it comes to the selection. Prices are ridiculous to drink on the premises. 5.5 euro from a Jambe de Bois from draught and a bottle of Taras Boulba. Not smart as a brewer. Just sell your beer at 2 euro a glass, and perhaps you will have a bit more visitors. Unless you don’t want visitors, but then you shouldn’t open up a bar... Prices to buy crates were good. Will probably not go back soon...
Visited in May of this year. Almost thought the map was wrong as the brewery is located in the back corner of a massive building. Our visit to one of the best breweries in the world was unfortunately somewhat disappointing. The brewery had hosted a large event the prior weekend and the beer selection was largely depleted. Because of this Yvan was demonstrably stressed, although very gracious in limited conversation. None of this changes the world class quality of the beer here and I can’t wait to come back in better circumstances.
