    What about the beer?

    by OlafS Updated Nov 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As I said, the Tongerlo beer is not made in the abbey. It's a product of the Haacht brewery that uses a recipe that blongs to the abbey. You can buy the beer at the abbey to support it, but it's for sale in beershops in much, if not all, of Belgium. To be frank I can't say what the beers taste like, it's too long ago, but I do know I liked them.

    De Oude Linden is a very nice bookstore. Not just books about religious subjects but also children's books, history, comics etc.. Also gifts. The shop is housed in the former cart house.

    The picture shows the two shops of the abbey; the bookstore on the left, and the other shop in the background.

    De Oude Hoeve is housed in the old farm of the abbey. Which is what the name means, the old farm. We missed this shop, or it was closed. Here you can buy homemade bread, dairy-products and the Tongerlo beers which are made for, but not by, the abbey.
