Very nice location with the old monastery right next to the tasting room. Very nice terrace to enjoy the La Trappe selection outside in the sun. Decorated tastefully with modern interpretation of the wood and brick history. Very respectful yet open for lots of tourists. Good waiters and prices are in line with your expectations. Nice visit. Didn’t try the food but that looked good too.

Highly recommending any fan of beer to go to this establishment if you're in the area. If you're several hours away, still highly recommended. Worth the trip!
Just recently moved to Belgium, and a buddy of mine said I HAD to check this place out. So we did. And it was glorious.
The restaurant area was like the other reviewer said, very ski lodge-y. But great atmosphere, nice fireplace, and the beer and food were incredible. Had 7 (I think) beers in the flight, everything from La Trappe White, Blonde, Dubbel, Tripel, Is'idor, Quadrupel. Yeah so I had all six of those in the smaller glasses, which really weren't that small at all (25cl, maybe?). Finished it off with my current favorite Trappist brew, the Isid'or.
The food was great, the sandwiches look amazing and taste just as amazing, the appetizers were yummy. Everything has got some level of beer in the ingredients. You just can't go wrong.
Gift store was great, dropped a little bit of cash for quite a bit of stuff. Make sure you try the chocolate, it's pretty yummy. Got a huge La Trappe glass that will be holding all of my beer caps during my tour in Belgium. I didn't notice what the price was on cases, will go back and see if it is any cheaper than the local beer stores.
Fantastic courtyard area, lot of room to relax and eat outside as well. I can see hundreds of cyclists coming here in the summer for a nice stop. Amazing!
I wasn't able to tour the brewery or the sanctuary or anything, will leave more input when I finally get a chance to see it.

Brabander and I stopped in here on 05OCT12. It was our first stop on a quick tour around the Tilburg area.
The brewpub is located in a building separate from the old (pictured) brewery. It looks like a supersized thatched hut on the outside, and a Vermont ski-lodge inside. Big, angled beams support the cathedral-like ceiling, with a corner fireplace and long, German-style tables all over. The front has a large bar where you can score one of about 6-8 draft biers. Tripel, Quad, Dubbel... the whole gamut was here, and they were good! Food looked good, too, though we didn't partake. Service was solid and friendly. There is a super gift/bottle shop in an adjacent building, too. Great times! Thnx, Thijs!!
