With over 200 types of beer, it can be hard to make a choice. But the personal is knowledgeable in this area and are happy to help. Quite a small place so it's a bit snuggly, but the customers there was as nice as the personel.

overall an excellent place for a couple of beers with friends, dont forget to try the "portie gemengd" to go with those beers. Please drink like a Belgian: slow and steady, and not like a Brit: quick to finish and quicker to the floor

Called in here for a couple of beers on the way to the train station. The bar man couldnt have been more helpful. We told him what beers we liked and his recommendations were right on the money

This is one of my favourite bars in Bruges. We were out walking around the city and decided to pop in for a beer. As usual this place did not disappoint, 250 beers in bottles and 5 on tap. Had one of the tap beers and enjoyed it, again as usual. Will pop in for a few more beers before... More

I visited 't Brugs Beertje about 6 years ago on my first visit to Bruges and had very fond memories so happy to return. Friendly welcome, good basic nibbles menu (bit of cheese, pate, and salami goes great with a beer or two) and a great atmosphere.

This is the best bar in Bruges tucked away from the main tourist areas. Small, traditional pub with a great atmosphere and excellent range of beer that can be chosen by selecting one from a menu. Staff are informative too. Only drawback is that is closed midweek so when you can visit, make the most of the opportunity to pop... More

Old time pub with beer list the size of a phone book. 100's of Belgian beers to choose from and the bartenders really know their beers and provide good advice. We visited twice during a recent trip to Bruges and tried unusual beers we had never heard of both times. We didn't eat there and not sure they serve food... More

Been to t'Brugs Beertje a couple of times and each one feels like you are stepping back in time - wonderful bohemian student like atmosphere, and well worth searching out (not easy to find, located in a small alleyway off one of the main streets).

I've been to Brugge several times. Five years ago, this was the first place I went to in Brugge...and it's always the first place I go when I return! I love this place! The ambiance is a combination of the comfort of your own living room and a few good friends with a ridiculously well stocked beer fridge! The staff... More

Never been any place like this, a beer list that just seems to go on and on and a warm welcome. You can just plant yourself at the bar and start a chat with anyone, and then anyone joins in and even offer to buy you a beer (wonderful). Don't fail to go.
