The Mont-Saint-Jean Farm, in Waterloo, is home to a museum and a microbrewery. This historical location served as a surgical hospital for the British and Allied troops during the famous battle.

The building, built in 1719, partially belongs to 3 communes: Waterloo, Braine-l’Alleud and Plancenoit. It was renovated in 2019, respecting the original blueprints.

Visitors will also find a restaurant, terroir products shop and a meeting/reception room on site.

The Mont-Saint-Jean microbrewery

In 1815, water was not trusted. Too many bacteria! Beer, which also proved nutritious, was the beverage of choice.

The microbrewery invites you to taste its many creations:

  • The Waterloo Triple Blonde (8°)
  • The Waterloo Strong Dark (8°)
  • The Waterloo Cuvée Impériale (9.4°)
  • The Waterloo Récolte (6°)
  • The Waterloo Dark Récolte (6°)
  • The Waterloo Strong Kriek (8°)

A British hospital

The Duke of Wellington had set a hospital for this troops in this very building: over 6,000 soldiers were treated here in this rudimentary building, nicknamed "The British ambulance"

Its museum highlights the role of women, often forgotten, in the patient's recovering. It also presents the history of hospitals on battlefields through the many wars.
