New visitor experience - St.Bernardus

Work in progress...

We have been organising authentic tours of our brewery for more than a decade now. At the end 2021, we were forced to temporarily suspend these tours due to work carried out in our production environment in relation to the installation of a new filling and packaging line.

Just before the summer holidays of 2023, we will be launching our new visitor experience, where you will be given the chance to learn all about the unique story behind St.Bernardus, completely at your own pace. This museum experience immerses you in the history of the brewery, teaches you the basics of the brewing process, and gives you a unique peek behind the scenes. Expect a sensory audio-visual experience with – and how could it be otherwise – a beer tasting at the end!

The new visitor experience will replace all previous tours of the brewery.
