Absolutely love this place, we were there 4 days and we went every day! Had lunch here and the food was gorgeous, authentic Belgian food. Also a really good place to just go for a drink, the bar area is really cosy and relaxed and such a good atmosphere. They also have an outside bar area and tables for if... More

Despite the fact my husband is NOT a beer drinker, I felt that the brewery tour would still be interesting. Neither of us were disappointed. For a reasonable cost, a short (30 min) tour can be taken of the brewery. The brewery is quaint, cozy and a hidden gem. If you didn't know it was there, you'd walk right past... More

Was advised to book so took a stroll on Sunday afternoon to book for Monday, but managed to get on the English tour at five o'clock. Really informative and interesting history of the company. Great views halfway around the tour and finished of with a glass of beer. Really excellent value for money. A must on any trip to Bruge.

Really cool brewery tour with tasters. Our guide (can't recall her name, but she was canadian), really knew her stuff. She said that the barrels of beer used to be rolled straight out of the basement into the canal and then taken by horse and cart to your house - like milk used to be. That, is service!

Felt more like a museum than a working brewery but the tour was informative and gave some interesting history. Also a great view from top of the chimney.

Been here a few times but today was first time we brought our daughters (16 & 22) and they loved it, including the beer! The trip is worth the €8 it's funny, informative, get a great view of Bruges from the roof and a Bruges zot beer at the end. Be aware lots of climbing of steep stairs and low... More

I really enjoyed the English language tour of the brewery, they explained everything in a way that kept me interested for the whole tour. There are beautiful views at the top of this building so bring your camera, and then enjoy a Brugges Zot at the end.

This the last family run brewery still working in Bruges, but was by no means the least interesting element of our 3 day visit to this historical Belgian city. The tour of the Brewery was fascinating. Everything was explained clearly by our ever-patient guide in good English. The beer-tasting at the end of the tour was sadly limited to the... More
