Visited on a Friday evening. Spartan looking brewpub, not much decoration except for the brewkettles and a little stream of water running through the floor. Also relatively empty in terms of clientele. Tried a taster of 4 beers for €6,50. Beers were all decent, but not very exciting. Service was OK. You can eat here as well, mostly one-pot dishes, but we didn’t try the food. Wouldn’t go back again.

Quite an odd place, loos like and old fashioned warehouse. Went a friday early afternoon this august, was almost alone, then someone went in to attend the tour. A small brewhouse in which they brew traditional styled non-hopped and gruut-based beers. Had a beer flight (5 styles x 0.15 glass) for 9.50€, plus some bread cheese and pickles. Beers are quite peculiar, not my preferences as i'm an hop head, nice to try something different and very local, best picks the Amber and Golden.

I risk to be ridiculed by all those who just KNOW that the brewery moved, but for those who (like me) do not know, well, the brewery moved to a new location quite a bit of a way from the original one where bare walls and faded signs on the windows remind a desperate visitor that the brewery is gone but there in no hint to tell that the new address is Rembert Dodoensdreef 1. It is a peculiar large hall stuffed with extraordinary, if a bit junky pieces of furniture and memorabilia. Luckily, a brewing kit is well visible and all smells tell that the place is real. So are the beers, not to everyone´s taste but well worth a try.

Visited this lovely, old warehouse-style brewpub on a Sunday afternoon. Quite spacious, several wodden tables, a few steel tanks inside as well, quite inviting ambiance. It was very quiet, even the few guests were very calm. I sampled all five beers, but I didn’t get a tasting flight, but every beer was served after my glass was empty. I had to wait quite long for the beers to be served, so maybe ask to get all beers at once, it was a bit annoying actually. And it’s not that the waiter was so busy, he probably thought it would be good to wait a little after every beer. Prices were okay, the beers were decent, and you can take bottles home as well. I would only really recommend this place if you haven’t tried the beers already though.

Nice looking place inside but they only have 5 beers so selection is very limited. We were first in the door so good service.

Gruut No English tours when I went so I just poked around the tiny brewhouse on my own. Very small it'd be pretty typical in Japan. The staff was happy to chat a bit & give me a rundown of the brews. I ordered a taster, 11€ for 5 beers, and got to work sampling them. The space is small and surprisingly modern. If in Gent pop in, wifi also available.

Gruut’s brewpub, or rather café, which I heard has to move elsewhere. Fit to relax a bit on a sunny afternoon, but lacks a bit of atmosphere. It is however interesting to be able to see the brewery inside. Serves only Gruut beers as far as I remember, which is fine of course, but I would not recommend going there for that alone, as these beers are easily available throughout Ghent and its surroundings.

Fairly central location and relaxed atmosphere. Service was quite okay, but when it got more crowed it was certainly difficult to get any attention. Food was mediocre and the same was the beer I tried. Three small samples are available for €6,50. Both beer and food was fair enough and the place in it self was kind of cool. Worth dropping by if one happens to be in the neighbourhood, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for this one.

Very good place. Beer is very special here - they a spice called gruut instead of hops. The result is very nice, especially with light beers.

Visited in 2011. They only serve their own beer but you can get a sample tray. Not the best beers in the world but worth a visit.
