Alveringem, is an attractive little town just a short distance from Lo along the banks of a canal.  Here is the official town page for Alveringem (in Dutch)

Small though it is, there are several compelling reasons to visit this town.  Alveringem is home to De Snoek - an old brewery and malt house, now a museum of brewing delightfully named the 'Museum of Thirst', with its adjoining caf-bar.  Click the link for more details

An essential stop on the gastronomic trail is t Potje Pt, a regular port of call on all our visits to Flanders - good beer, good food, and a chance to take home some of the best pts you'll find. 
The administrative district of Alveringem covers 80 km2 and takes in 8 other towns.  One of these is Oeren, a hamlet lying close to Alveringem, and reached by narrow roads over open fields.  Why go there?  It's where you'll find de Leute, a delightful country caf-bar, in a historic building, and the handiest one of the outlets for Brouwerij de Bie.  You really must sample the products of this innovative brewery.
