't Gaverhopke is a medium sized unassuming looking wooden hut type building in front of the Brewery, which doubles as the local Bar and the official tasting cafe. The Brewery is located near to Kortrijk, in West Flanders and was set up in 1994. Started as a hobby at first it soon turned into a business. The Bar only opens on weekends. It may also open Wednesday to Friday as well in the Summer time though, but check first. We stopped here at Easter 1999 for a Brewery tour, the Owner and Staff were very friendly and accommodating. At the time of our visit; the Café only served the Gaverhopke Beers, which were; Blond (8% ABV), Bruin 8 (8% ABV) and Bruin 12 (12% ABV).
All the beers are unfiltered, and served from the Bottle, each of which has sediment as a result. All the bottles had the same labels, so only the different colored caps revealed the contenst identity with any certainty without disturbing the beer – which led to some confusion at times I can tell you!. Food is available but is quite basic. The house speciality was a cross between a Pancake and a folded Pizza stuffed only with Ham & Cheese and other local offerings, but excellent value for money, very wholesome and filling.
Bottles are available for out-sales, they do a nifty 6 pack, 2 of each beer in a small wooden carryout. Good Value too. A friendly place, but by no means a classic Belgium Café, it's different and in the backwaters a bit - but well worth popping in though if you are out this way.
