We gave a tour in the abbey brewery as a present to our friends and joined the party. We went there on a sunny Friday afternoon and did the guided tour visiting the brewery, the abbey grounds and the bottlery, The guide told a lot about the history of the abbey and also about the beer brewing process. His did this in a funny and entertaining way and mixed Dutch with English as we had a couple of Americans in our group. We also saw a small film on the bottling process and after the tour we saw a movie in the visitors center annex tasting facility. The movie gave a good insight in the history of the abbey and the reason why this abbey was founded in the Netherlands a long time ago. The movie was subtitled in English and before it started we could select a drink from the selection of home made beers. After the visit of almost 2 hours we took a seat on the large outside terrace and ordered some more beers and delicacies including some home made cheese flavored with beer. If you want to take some stuff with you take note that the shop closes at 5 p.m. In all a very enjoyable afternoon which is worth repeating.
