Stopped in here recently after picking up 12’s from Westvleteren and had a wonderful experience. Through the courtyard and past the random brewing tanks you enter the hallway of an old school that is now De Stuise’s bottle shop. They obviously have all of the available Struise brews, but also some other random bottles (I picked up a de Molen brew while I was there.) On our visit, we met brewer Carlo who was kind enough to take us into one of the classrooms and give us a sampling of several of their beers (to include a Black Albert mixed with whiskey... interesting.) The Struise guys were very hospitable and helpful, and each of my group left with at least a case of beer. This was really the highlight of my trip to Belgium.

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.

So this place is only open 2 till 6 every Saturday. Luck and a bit of planning finally got me here. And it didn’t let me down. The Brewery has no sign. At 2pm a shutter goes up revealing an entrance in what looks like an old house or closed shop. Walk through the passage and you see a lot of large mounted racks of barrels aging beers with an exterior patio of tables. Inside, which does feel like an old school, is a tap room featuring about 15 of Struise’s best stuff. New stuff you haven’t tried and classic stuff. Most of it is plus 10% but they do great little mini glasses to taste the heavyweight stuff. Service is very friendly and it’s a unique vibe. Highly highly recommended.

Ik vind dit een grootse plaats die goed verscholen grote bier serveert. Magnifieke bieren die eerder als zwaar tot zeer zwaar mogen worden beschouwd!!

rodenbachvintage  (2) Roeselare, Belgium | December 9, 2017
Niet te gemakkelijk te vinden, maar eens binnen zo een overvloed aan keuze (30 bieren vers getapt) die in de handige proefglaasjes geserveerd worden zodat je gerust aan een goed aantal proefglazen kan komen. Best wel een stukje vlees mee doen of een brood en wat beleg of je komt er niet recht buiten :-). Catering zou gemakkelijk zijn, maar het heeft net de charmes dat je er je eigen boterham met paté of een stukje vlees op de BBQ kan meedoen. Must see als je in de buurt bent!

We visited here on Saturday 25th March 2017, the we being me, Loz and Ian (Harrisoni on RB). Despite our many, many trips to Belgium over quite a number of years this was our first visit here as the opening times have never really worked out for us. As I have described in my other ratings for places nearby It is quite easy to get here, if heading over from the UK, then get off the E40 Mway at Veurne and head down the N8 in the general direction of Ypres and Poperinge, once you hit Oostvleteren turn left at the traffic lights and the old school house is immediately on your RH side. I have to say there is very little signage that screams out brewery or tap room though.

We had a flying visit as we were heading back to the UK on the 16:20 Eurotunnel and never arrived here until gone 2pm. You enter via a narrow passageway off of the street; this opens out into an open area where much of the brewing equipment is including large wooden Bourbon or Whisky casks waiting to be filled with the next Struise beer. The old school building/tap room is at the rear of the yard and as you enter there is a small corridor off to the left that acts as a bottle shop with a limited amount of their own beers here for sale (mostly the rarer stuff by the looks of things. Beyond this is the Tap Room, it a reasonable sized square room with a bank of taps ahead (27 I’m told) what looks like the old green original school chalk boards off to the RH side have been reused to explain brewing processes with diagrams and text. There are lots of pictures on the far wall that have been photo-shopped/doctored, so famous images, celebrities; historical characters are seen with a Struise beer in hand, some are quite amusing.

Carlo met us, we’d met Carlo before and chatted to him at beer festivals gone by, but Ian knew him really well and got a big hug and free beer thrust into his hand, as did Loz (I was Des, so no beer for me) I took myself off into the bottleshop and picked a few interesting bottles to take away with me. By the time that we left a few more folk were now coming in and Carlo was doing the explaining to the beer novices about the many beers that they had on offer. I would say that this is a must visit if in the area, we’ll definitely be back again if we can just get it to work in with our plans for a future visit over here.
