The guided tour of this brewery is comprehensive and enjoyable. We only waited 15 minutes for the start of the English speaking guide. It took 45 minutes and you get to sample the stuff at the end. It's triple distilled and gorgeous. Well worth the...More

We loved Zot blonde beer and it quickly became our favourite during our three night stay in Bruges. We went on the brewery tour which we thoroughly enjoyed and Jan our guide was great.

We had an excellent tour guide who was very funny and informative, which made this tour better than the average brewery tour. It should be noted that if you struggle with mobility or are of a larger size, you will have difficulty getting to all...More

Well the tour is different and a slow assault course but great fun. Lovely, humorous guide and up several floors to the roof and down some seriously steep stairs and rabbit tunnels and finished with a nice cool beer at the end. Worth a visit...More

I’ve been on many brewery tours, but this one topped the list. Guide was funny and brewery went above and beyond to do a great tour. There are a few steep stairs but the pace is not rigorous. Don’t miss this experience while in Bruges.

Great tour and beer sampling after. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us moving - as the next tour was breathing down our necks. Great view from the top of the breqwery

Who would have thought in tiny Bruges there is a little gem of a brewery. We did the 12euro tour, you get a euro off if you are staying in a hotel in Bruges. Warning there are steep steps on the Tour so bear that...More

I guess it’s a must to visit a brewery whilst in Bruges and our guide was joly and lively but the group was sandwiched with another so the visit was a bit rushed and we were disappointed not to see the actual brewing taking place....More

The tour of this brewery is full of information. You climb through this incredibly old brewery...up and down steep stairs and into "nooks and crannies" (or is "alcoves" the right word) of the brewery. The guide is friendly and into his job. The tour includes...More

You don't need to book (and doubt you can), though I'd get there a bit early to make sure you get on the list for a given tour. We showed up for one and it was full and had to come back the next day.

We turned up and booked for the next available tour meaning we had to wait an hour or so. However this was not a problem for us as there is plenty to see in the area around. We just strolled around and then came back at the... More

Honestly, they would probably respond rather quickly if you just e-mailed them and asked. It's not a big brewery so you won't get lost in the shuffle. You're not in high season there right now, I'd think, so they are... More
