At what time can I arrive?You can arrive between 9am and 3pm. After 3pm, the gate is closed and from then on you are not supposed to arrive. This is because you will not have enough time to settle in and become part of the group. An exception is made on Friday evenings when you can come after work or school and stay overnight, so that on Saturday morning you can be present from the start of the day. In this case, however, you must let us know in advance at: email@example.com. Those who are not staying overnight should leave at the latest after the three o’clock break (around 4.30pm), because then the evening starts for the group staying overnight.
On what day can I arrive?The Brewery is open every day, but not every day are there people present. If you want to be sure there will be other people there, it is best to come on a Sunday or during a planned multi-day stay (see agenda). Especially for those who are making their first visit, we expect you to come on a Sunday or during such a planned multi-day stay. You can inform us of your arrival at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the same e mail address if you have further practical questions.
How long can I stay?A full stay is four days (three nights), but you are also welcome for one day or one hour. However, you are not supposed to stay longer than four days.
The book of comings and goingsWhen entering the Brewery, you arrive in the courtyard. The second gate is always wide open to what we call the "teljoorgang". On the table you will find the “book of comings and goings”. On your arrival you register by writing the date and time, your name and the municipality where you live. When leaving you check out by again entering the time and your name. You can add your e mail address or street address if you would like to receive our newsletter. Also, some brief feedback about your stay would be welcome.
Can I come with company?You can come alone, with a friend, or with your partner and children. If you want to come with a larger group, it is good to discuss this in advance at: email@example.com.

How much does it cost?
Your financial contribution is up to you to decide. To give you a hint: it would be appropriate to donate €5 per person if you stay part of a day or €15 for a whole day + night. But you give 'what it's worth to you'. You can leave your contribution in the glass jar, which is next to the book of comings and goings. You may use the money from the jar to buy groceries. From the surplus in the jar, we pay the land tax, insurance, and for materials for maintenance of the building, water, coal, gas, electricity, etc. We are an independent non-profit organisation without subsidies. If you prefer to contribute by bank transfer, you can do so using the following account details:
BE80 0682 4008 9777
to the payee "Viersel - Leven in de Brouwerij vzw"
with the message “residence [date]”.
Also, gifts are a big help.
