Welcome to Orval


The abbey’s famous brewery is normally closed to visitors, but 300m from the monastery is Orval’s modern tavern, À l'Ange Gardien. As well as ‘normal’ Orval it also serves draft ‘Orval Vert’, a lighter, hoppier monastery ale available nowhere else. Many meals incorporate Orval beer and/or cheese. Upstairs is an exhibition space and roof terrace with abbey views.
