Notes:
Set up by two friends and a Brother-in-Law who started brewing beer in a barn at a local farm. Went commercial in 2003, but with no capital the beers were brewed on the Brasserie Caulier Plant. In February 2006, the decision was taken to move production to the Flemish SA Deca Brewery in Woesten-Vleteren (working) parts of which date from 1917. Exports its beers to Canada, Denmark, Italy and the USA with plans for China, India and Australia in the beerline. Brewed 30hl in 2003, the plan for 2006 is 300hl.

Located in Oostvleteren, in an old school. Actually very hard to find, because of the lack of any signs. You actually enter a regular door, which leads to courtyard, from which you finally enter the school/brewery.

The taproom is located in a classroom with an authentic panel painting, showing the brew process. The atmosphere is very cosy, abandoned old school benches and tables are still standing there, where you are now able to enjoy your beer. You can also sit in their courtyard when the wheather is sunny, go to the next butcher and join a barbecue. They promise to have about 30 beers on tap, which contains a good range of their beer, you can decide between three different glass sizes, 8ml, 15ml and 33ml, which is very comprehensible, taking into account that they serve beer with an abv between 3.5 - 26. They also got some bottles and glasses for takeaway, but don’t rely on their internet site, as they don’t seem to care to hold it up-to-date.

I love this place and it's my favorite stop when I make my yearly beer run to this part of Belgium.
It's cozy, relaxed and a great place to meet other people who share the same love for craft beer. They have a big tap where they always have several of their beers on tap and you can sample them for a very reasonable price.
The times I've been there they're always very friendly and their available beers range from low in alcohol to very high in alcohol....and with high, I mean high:) It's a good thing they have small sampling glasses.
Every time I've been there one of the owners is there and he's always keen to explain stuff or answer questions.
In short...go there. You won't regret it. If I had to make a choice between stopping here in Oost Vleteren OR in West Vleteren...then this is where I go. But of course...you should visit both;)

On a side note: If you want to buy some beer to take home this place may be a hit or miss situation. Sometimes they have several nice beers...sometimes you're just bumming:)

I love going here to enjoy beer. Every time I have been they have had something awesome on tap. Buying beer to go is hit or miss. Either they have some good stuff or the bare minimum. Get there early if you are looking to buy beer before they get sold out.
