We paid our €10 each and waited for the English tour. Our guide was excellent and kept the talk at the right balance without delving into chemistry and micro-biology. Interesting to see how the brewery has changed over the years and many of the processes...More

I can't rate the brewery and the beer highly enough. A score of 5 doesn't do it justice. I went on the XL tour which was very informative about their history and beer making. Obviously the beer tasting at the end was the best part....More

Nice trendy bar to have a drink or to eat something. Professional staff. Possibility to take a tour of the brewery on several moments of the day. The bar is very large and not too crowdy.

Best brewery tour I've been on. Detailed. Funny. A nice mixture of modern and old school processes. Really great place. Didn't love the beer but that's a personal taste thing. I can see why people do.

We took the XL tour. Well worth the extra few euros. The lady tour guide was incredibly informative and enthusiastic and we enjoyed our selection of beers at the end.

This is only about the family business of Henri Maes, they tell about their story not of the others.

Don't think so as it's not one of their beers. Plenty of their own to choose from - would definitely recommend the Brugse Zot unfiltered.

There is no lift, and as others have noted, it is a quite a climb up and down narrow, steep stairs. At least one flight it is advised to descend backwards, like a ladder. My 87-year-old Mum loved Bruges, but this... More
