The day started wet and got worse so we headed for De Halve Maan brewery tour so we could get wet inside too. The tour takes about an hour if you include the post tour (free) drink. Brewing used to depend on gravity so the tour is a bit up steps and down so not appropriate for people with injuries... More

The beer here was very good and it was nice to sit out in the sunshine and enjoy our beers. However, we tried to get food service one day and gave up because we were ignored for a half hour.

We popped in for a drink quite late in the afternoon. Beer garden was heaving. Loved the Brugse Zot unfiltered - only available on from the brewery. Came back the next day and did the brewery tour, which was a bit disappointing. It felt rushed and you didn't get to see a working brewery. More a tour of the place... More

I took the tour and it was alright; the best part was the visit to the rooftop with the view of the city. The tour was inexpensive and came with the Blonde Brugse Zot at the end. The real highlight was sitting in the leather armchair, beer in hand, next to the window with a view of all the boats... More

Lovely range of Beer brewed on the premises, you can drink in the courtyard or the Restaurant. The guided brewery tour is well worth doing and there are fine views of the city from the Brewery Roof during the Tour so take your camera

Excellent value for money. A really different thing to do! The tour guide was thorough and extremely knowledgeable. During the tour you get to go onto the roof with a spectacular view of the city of Brugge. And a free drink at the end! Would recommend

We went on Sunday to De Halve Maan interested in seeing how beer is produced, however we got only the guided tour explaining in detail the process but without having the chance to directly see it. Price for the guided tour is 8 Euro and at the end they give you one draft beer to taste. We tried the Brugse... More

Loved this tour. We paid EURO 8 per person and had a tour of brewary with Roland. Tour was very informative and Roland was very comical. We learnt about the 4 beers made in brewary and also as the end of tour we got a free drink (included with ticket) which was for the Zot blonde. This came to be... More
