Thijs is awesome, speaks loud en clear, Dutch only by the way (!). Great tour of this old brewery, interesting chemical facts and nice tasting moments. Pretty souvenir at the end. I loved the cellars. To be recommended.

Superb beer and great place to look round if you are into beer. You can do a tour, or just shop if you prefer. All their current brews plus a few other things. Try the Prestige beer cheese.
