We had a great tour around the brewery, our tour guide was excellent telling us all about how they brew beer now and how they did it years ago. She was funny and had perfect English. We had a very enjoyable Brugse Zot in the bar before leaving.

We found this tour really interesting. Lovely little brewery, with lots of nooks and crannies and narrow steps. Fantastic view from the rooftop - the tours worth it just for that. Tour guide was really lovely and answered lots of our questions and was very knowledgeable. Lovely free sample afterwards too!

The tour was interesting, having a native English speaker guide was a definite plus... and the beer at the end of the tour (included in the ticket price) was very nice.

This tour is fantastic value for money. Gives you an insight into how the belgians brew their beer and how it used to be delivered. On top of that, it also has a brasserie where you get your free pint of beer and you can order food on top at extra cost, which I would recommend as the food here... More
