Visited on a sunday afternoon. Lots of local cyclists and local tourists (as in not from abroad, except for myself ofcourse). Beautiful patio with a view on the old buildings. Good and fast service. Only serving their own beers, which were all available (except for the seasonals out of season ofcourse). Basicly only serve snacks and no food (although I saw some small list with a bit of food, but I think you had to make a reservation beforehand). Had a cheese platter, which was half a kg of cheese. No tasting sizes possible, smallest size was 0,25 cl or about. Quality of the beer itself was surprisingly good, as it should be at the source. Not something to go out of your way for, but it was a nice afternoon spended.
Nice beer garden courtyard at what was an abbey in the 16th century. Whether it is a castle depends on your definition, I guess. All four or five of the Ter Dolen beers are here, including the recently hyped, Cascade-hopped Armand. Would have been a very peaceful scene if not for the jets screaming overhead; there is an air force base nearby. Don’t plan on eating here. Ordered sausages for a snack and got a packet of those fatty dried ones from the supermarket. Bummer. Could easily be planned as part of a Limburg rural biking route. Not an unpleasant drive, for that matter.
Located in a beautiful building with a splendid courtyard, it stocks the full range of Ter Dolen beers, but I have heard that beers are sometimes produced elsewhere. Not sure what the current status is. The food looked nice, but I didn’t eat here.
