The Cistercian abbey of Val Dieu is a major site for pilgrimage and traditional Belgian beers in Belgium.

The Abbey of Val Dieu is located in the centre of the Meuse–Rhine Euroregion, 25 km from Liège, Maastricht and Aachen. This abbey, which dates back to the 13th century is currently managed by the Communauté Chrétienne (Christian Community) of Val Dieu.

The Brasserie du Val Dieu

The brewery, unique in Belgium, welcomes its guests inside the abbey.
Inspired by the monks who used to brew here, the brewery makes beers refermented in the bottle. These are authentic Belgian Abbey Beers: no aromas, spices have been added and the traditional infusing method was followed.

Like the monks before, the site brews beers with distinct characters and flavours: a Lager, a Dark beer, a Triple and a Grand Cru.

Le Casse-Croute

The abbey's stables have been converted into a restaurant with a terrace. Here you can enjoy regional specialities with a delicious Val Dieu beer or a glass of Aubel cider.

Val Dieu is a favourite destination for pilgrims and tourists alike. The secret is simple: a warm welcome, delicious beer and hearty food.
