3 Nov. 2019. Here are a few reviews from our walkers!
A lovely rainy walk with a fascinating bit of local history thrown in.

As once the beer is bottled, it continues to ferment. So, the longer you store it, the better the taste. (more…)
This coming Saturday, we will be heading back to Koningshoeven monastery to visit the Trappist Brewery, famous for La Trappe beer. For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s take a look at our tour from 2013!
