An ok place. I have been on many brewery tours, and this was self-guided. Staff were friendly enough, apart from the guy at the bar who could use some lessons in manners - they don't cost anything mate. The Lambic beer was not our 'cup...More

We walked - It is a bit off the beaten path. You could Uber or taxi though. If i remember correctly, there is a hop on hop off stop fairly near the brewery. Definitely worth the effort!
