We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of De Halve Maan Brewery. Our guide explained everything very thoroughly, from the history of the family run brewery to how beer is made. His explanations were accompanied by interesting anecdotes too. Great views of Brugges once you reach the rooftop!

We had purchased the Brugge City Card which allows unlimited admissions over 2 or 3 days. This was our last tour on day one, of our visit to Brugge. Having been on 3 other brewery tours in the US, I was unprepared for this tour. This tour is informative and fun. At one point, you are on the roof, so... More

I'm not a beer drinker, my husband is, so this review covers the brewery tour. We had a lovely and very charismatic tour guide whose genuine love for beer and the beer process was very clear. We had an excellent time, even with a squirmy toddler!

Beer is very nice and reccommend staying to try thd others afterwards. Couple of negatives: Our guide continued to start talking while the back of the... More

This was possibly the high light of our four days in Bruges. We had an excellent guide who took care to explain clearly how the brewery worked as he escorted us around the building. It was fascinating to be taken behind the scenes, seeing the redundant equipment and seeing how progress had impacted upon beer production. Not necessarily ideal for... More

Very entertaining tour by Roland. Very informative tour of this unique and expanding brewery that's well worth a visit. Tours are done in 3 languages so caters for most people. Lots of steps, some steep but they do point them out shouldn't be a point to put you off. The free beer at the end of the tour makes it... More
