Looking for a day out in the green fields of Belgium? Maybe you even want to go hicking, cross some gently rolling hills? And then, of course, you would like to find a nice place to have a decent pint of beer. Well, welcome to Val Dieu Brasserie, located in the Wallonian idyll of the Pays de Herve! Brasserie Val Dieu is situated just in between Herve and Aubel, both rather villiages than cities. The brewery is part of an old abbey, that till 2000 was part of the Cistercian order, but is nowadays run by a worldy enterprise. You will be offered a good handful of traditional Belgium styles and if you desire you could go for a guided tour through the brewery – of course with a degustation of beer and cheese. Yes, there is local cheese, too! My advice is: Go for the jubilee-beer „Cuvee 800“, grab some cheese and take a seat in the wonderful beergarden. Surrounded by medieval walls a beer at the abbey of Val Dieu is simply: Heavenly!
Brasserie Val Dieu is the most heavenly place in all over Belgium to have a pint of beer! The former Abbey might be left be the Cistercians, but the brewery stayed and its beer is better than ever.
