Hello b

Fantome is about an hour or so east of Brussels, in some beautiful countryside in the Ardennes. Definitely do-able on a day trip but also well worth considering staying a night or two in the area so as to take in the scenery and also a few other breweries in the area - e.g. Achouffe is just about 20 miles up the road from Fantome.

Vapeur is probably an hour or so too, but in completely the other direction. Also bear in mind that Dubuisson, Dupont and Ellezelloises are all very close to Vapeur and all are worth a visit, so again you may want to spend a few days in that area, or at least an overnight.

Nearest Trappist brewery to Brussels would be Westmalle, but good luck trying to set up a visit.

recommended transportation = for what you want to do, you will need a car.

Good luck with the planning, do let us know how your trip is shaping up nearer the time.

Cheers

Jeremy
