We had an informative tour around one of the last Brugges brewery's . Our guide was great (Maggie) as was the beer! Well worth a trip if in Brugges and a lovely bar!

We booked the beer tour between me and my boyfriend, thinking he would enjoy it the most but actually I loved it. The staff were very good, informative, funny and covered the right level of detail to keep me interested. The format of the tour worked well and compared to the other city beer tours this was an absolute bargain... More

We took the brewery tour the first time we visited Bruges, the second time we stopped in for more beer! The tour was very informative and amazing to see the original layout and equipment that they used to brew beer. You get a pint included at the end, we did one blonde and one Bruin to taste test. We recommend... More

Really enjoyed going to this brewery. We went on the tour. It was a bit of a tight squeeze as the building is quite small in some of the old brewery areas. But it was worth it. The guide was very funny and informative. The beer was great as well. They do tours in English, French and German...maybe even more... More

I didn't go on the tour, rather I stayed at the bar to try the beer. The quadruppel beer is fantastic. It can get crowded with tours.

We decided not to visit the brewery but just to enjoy a few beers at the bar. We didnt get to enjoy the cosy lounge area near the fire since the place was too busy. We wish we would have eaten here cause the meals seemed nice as well.

The tours here are very well organised they have guides who speak several languages so you can book on to a tour appropriately. When we went it was a quiet time in Bruges end of November so ended up getting a tour all to ourselves. This was a very interesting tour and the lady who showed us round was very... More

This old brewery is beautiful as a building, fun with a charming guide and interesting as a tour. It is in a convenient part of town for walkers. Going up on the roof gave visitors a photo op of the whole town, a nice extra I hadn't expected. The brewery has a good cafe so you can eat while you... More
