Staying a short distance away from Abbey and we incorporated a visit on our returning ride out. The courtyard gets better on each visit. The sun was out and so the popularity of Achel yet still the service was quick and the produce was as good as ever. You can't pass without calling in and sample a beer or two.

I like to visit the trappist abbeys to drink a trappist beer 'on location'. In Achel you can order a blonde trappist, which is not available in shops, so I decided to try that. The tap appeared to be broken, but no worries, they have it bottled as well. I was disappointed that the foam did not develop very well. I think the beer is kept too cold for this, or maybe it has to do with the cleaning of the glasses. I expect the beer to be served perfectly in the place of origin, and it wasn't. Still it is nice to enjoy a beer in the surroundings of an abbey.

The store of this abbey is the best of all abbeys of Belgium. Cups, glasses and beers from different breweries, including all trappists for a very inviting price. The attendants are not friendly, but ok.

We went for a drive and decided to stop at this amazing Trappist Brewery, Achel! Had fantastic beer on draught. I had the Achel Bruin Double. Great skill behind the tap. They could stay open a bit longer on a Saturday. All in all very nice place to visit for a walk, drive or fiets!!

If you are coming here for the food, don't. There are a few options for dessert and sandwiches, but mostly, this visit is about the beer. They offer two beers on tap, which is lower in alcohol content and they offer two beers in the bottle, which are heavier in alcohol content. You can choose either a blond or a bruin beer from both options of draft or bottle. The great thing about the abbey is that you can enjoy beer on a peaceful terrace in a rural setting, while at the same time learning about the history of the abbey during the Great War-there is a Great War exhibition at the abbey. Furthermore, there is a wonderful beer store with an incredible selection of Belgian beers. Certainly worth the visit.
