It's all about the beer and finding your way to it

A once a month kind of place

In the Flemish Brabant town of Diest is the cafe-brewery of Loterbol. It is an elusive establishment that only opens on the first Saturday of each month for eight hours. Loterbol makes a tasty blond and a brune as well as an very intriguing and recommended beer/lambic mix that are available in beershops.

In the cafe they serve on draft a refreshing lower strength blonde that has a nice sharp bitter character but lacks a bit in complexity. The cafe itself is a typical Brabantine town cafe with small wooden tables and some antique beer knick knacks here and there. It fills up with locals sharing some beers and chatting with the owner as well as coming in to exchange empty cases for full ones.
