Visited a few years ago after a trip to Bruges. Large canteen-like place, looks a bit sterile, not really a bar-feel to it. All 3 beers were available, with the Blond for takeaway. Had some cheese, 8 & 12. Nice to have been there, but not really memorable considering ambiance.
The cafe where you can purchase beer from the St. Sixtus abbey in Wesvleteren. It’s a beer pilgrimage that everyone needs to make. You have the options of the three beers, some would say the best Trappist beers in the world. Service is good, helpful and attentive, don’t really need to know much about beer. They also sell the cheese the abbey makes here as well, and some other products, but the cheese is very nice. The amount of beer you can buy varies based on how many people are coming there in a given week.

the one place to drink Westvleteren beers. we had an appetizer and dessert along with a #12 and #8. worth the stop if you happen to be visiting Ypres or get lucky enough to get through on the phone line for a couple cases of the "best beer in the world"
the place is like an highway bar, not so fascinating...is better to sit down outside: you are in the middle of the nature.
you can drink all the three westvleteren, food is quite good...only fromage, jambon and patè, but quite good.
Un endroit magique pour les amateurs de bières. A quelques pas de l’abbaye de st Sixtus, vous trouverez une boutique vendant les produits de cette abbaye dont les 3 bières des moines de Westvleteren. Un restaurant permet de goûter ces bières et les produits pour un prix acceptable. Le service est attentionné. Une belle adresse.
