The brewery in Gent is a special place. There are numeour beers on tap for offer and the brewery equipment is in full view. Great time out after a day's work or just to socialise with friends.

You can get a flight of 4 non-hopped beers here + 1 hopped beer. I was very appreciative of the non-hopped - the beer is flavored with herbs. I enjoyed the beer – very much so – it was different (which is always good). If...More

We were recommended this place by friends whilst attending the music festival. The interior is a bit rustic with a few tables and chairs inside and seating outside. The brewery uses herbs and spices instead of hops. I tried 4 of the five beers available...More
