Stopped by on a recent trip to Brussels. Its in a bit of a strange neighborhood, but easy to get to. You really step back in time walking in to the brewery. Its a very hands-on kind of place. You are free (encouraged) to tour the place on your own, take pictures, as questions whatever you want. Afterwards, you choose a few of their Geuze or lambics and just chill. Its something like 6 euro for the tour and tasting. You can also purchase additional tastings. You can buy any bottle for sale, at a great price - like 3euro for an 11oz bottle, t-shirts, glasswear, posters..etc. Super friendly service, super chill, very reasonable prices, considering how expensive they can be in the states, and just all around very unique and fun. Like most of belgium, they really take pride in what they make and it shows in the product and atmosphere. Do not leave brussels without having been here!

Not sure what I can add except my own experiences.

Took the train from Bruges here (highly recommended) and then made the short walk from the train station to the brewery.

The location leaves a bit to be desired. But who cares, this is a brewery, and the rent is probably cheap.

When we entered the place was super noisy, it was bottling day. We settled in for an unblended lambic, classic gueuze and a kriek. While sitting enjoying our beers, Jean stopped by with a couple of free glasses of the beer they were bottling, (Saint Lamvinus) a very cool and friendly gesture! Decided to just skip the tour, the one that left while we were there was packed any ways.

On my way out I was helped by the nice gentleman working the gift shop and grabbed a few bottles of Fou to take home.

As everyone knows, this is a must stop in Brussels, and Belgium for that matter.

This place is as good as it gets! A working museum, a step back in time. With the perfect funk in the air; The funky bacteria odor in the barrel rooms reminded me of my grand parents Poughkeepsie New York basement, perfect for open air fermentation. Maybe Grandpa was up to more then we realized. With service as good as a Portland Oregon upstart brewery and equipment older then any of us care to live, this place is amazing! One thing you do not want to do if you are ever in the vicinity is not go. Double check the hours. Take your time during the self guided tour then taste all they have to offer at the end. Your taste buds will crave the Gueuze, the Kriek and the Iris for months to follow. IPA biased drinkers will be shown the other dimension of the taste spectrum. Beer Opine World Class!
