    So I know two of these breweries are in France, but I decided to post here anyways since they are right on the border and I thought I'd get a better response here.

    It is really hard to find information about any of these breweries, but I would really like to set up a day trip out of Brussels to visit them. They are all within biking distance of a train stop and each other, so it seems possible to get to them all in a day. However, I do not know if any of them are open to the public, if they have a cafe or bottle shop, or if they give tours. If anyone could give me any info on this, it would be much appreciated.

    Blaugies has a website in English: http://www.brasseriedeblaugies.com/accueilen.html
    Brewery visits are by appt. and require a min. of 15 people.

    According to the Good Beer Guide to Belgium (5th edition) they have a cafe restaurant, but I didn't see any mention on the website of such. It says they are closed Monday & Tuesday and open 11:00am to 11:00pm, with the kitchen open from 12pm to 2pm and 6pm to 9:30pm. There is an email contact on the website if you want to confirm.

    Thanks for the info. My friend was able to contact them, but we still are having a hard time with Theillier and Bailleux.

    Have you tried the other site? There is a much larger European base and you might be able to get some info. or outreach a member there.

    Bailleux is the Brewery in the back of Brasserie Au Baron. The Brasserie is open only on Fri, Sat & Sunday. SO you would need to go on those days only. The Brewery is very small, however they are very close to, if not already finished with their expansion. If you can not contact them to set up an appt in advance, just ask to see the Brewery when you go there for lunch, and if they are not too busy, you might get a peek.

    They do speak some very limited English.

    Great place to eat as well as to have a few beers. Highly recommended

    Cheers
    Mike
