A beer menu as big as the yellow pages

You want to go to a cozy small place with very friendly staff who knows a lot about beer? Then this is the right place for you. My company don't really like beer. Though, with a selection which adds up in a menu as thick as the yellow pages you better be able to find one beer that you find... read more

Sad to say-quite rude to us. Told us very shortly not to sit down because the people from the table were just outside smoking. Of course we went outside and there was no sign of anyone. Much colder welcome than more other bars in Bruges! I suppose a busy place doesn't need to be friendly sadly...

A cosy bar with a great beer menu, this is rightly considered as a Bruges institution. It does fill up in the evening, so those in bigger parties may struggle to be seated, but this place can't help being a victim of its own appeal. I've tended to visit not long after it opens (usually about 4pm) which gave me... More

A classic bar in Bruges that is a 'must' visit for any beer lover. The range of beers and knowledge of breweries in Belgium cannot be surpassed.

Great local stop to experiment Belgian beers. Their collection of beers is almost 20 pages long. You need to visit more than once to get the feeling.

Go for the Belgian ambiance, the friendly bartenders, and the historic feel of the place. Don't go if you are a snob, have a pre-conceived notion of what a café/bar should be, or don't really like beer. Otherwise, see you there!

Small tavern with a very limited food menu but huge beer menu. A bit hard to find but worth the effort. A lot of locals drink here and you can find any Belgian beers you desire. The staff is helpful if you are a novice to the local beers.

Always a brilliant option on a visit to Bruges! Can't wait to visit again. Gets very hot in the summer, easily solved by drinking more beer

My first stop in Bruges and I could easily have stayed, although I wouldn't have walked out. Great selection of beers and a friendly staff and clientele.

Fantastic, genuine, small Belgian bar with a ridiculous amount of ales. Staff very knowledgable and the owner was very friendly. Not a huge amount of seating so you often have to queue for a table but well worth it if you are a beer lover. Food is more bar snack stuff than proper meals but perfect things to go with... More
