TER DOLEN ABBEY BEERS

Premium quality abbey beers

The current Ter Dolen (De Dool) castle in Helchteren dates from the 16th century, but its history is much older.

The Ter Dolen beers (www.terdolen.be) are brewed with lots of care and attention for quality and craftmanship.

Since 2008, Ter Dolen Blond, Donker, Tripel and Kriek have been the first beers to carry the "Recognized Belgian Abbey Beer” label.

There are 45-minute tours of the castle brewery every Saturday and Sunday at 15:00, with a fun peek into the brewing secrets and De Dool castle.

Take a little detour on your drive/bike ride from the holiday home Casa Maran.
