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!

A must for anyone who cares about beer, regardless of whether you like the style or not. The smells alone are worth the 7€ self guided tour fee. I was astonished at how inexpensive the bottles to go were. Friendly and passionate staff. My only disappointment was that I wasn't there on a Tuesday or Thursday, when they're brewing.

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.
