Individuals or groups, a very organised tour of the beer brewing operation in the original site within the city - the bottling is outside of the city.
Good tour explaining beer making, plus a visit to the roof top for a view over the city....More
We went here for the XL tour and for a quick lunch. The food from the restaurant was really nice, when we went it was a set menu so not there normal menu but still nice choice of dishes. The service was great with the...More
This was actually are second choice for breweries to visit, fortunately our first choice was closed. We had a great time here, we didn’t realise that this was the brewery for Brugse Zot, which conincidentially we have been drinking for the last few days. The...More
My husband and I recently visited De Halve Maan Brewery during a break to Brugge for his birthday. I must say that he loves Belgian beer and the tour was a must for him during our visit, I before hand wasn’t to bothered.
My partner LOVES beer. Possibly as much as he loves me, so in return for coming round a couple of art galleries and looking at every painting in detail, we can to de Halve Maan brewery. The guide, an expert in her field who had...More
Had a great time on the XL tour. Our guide, Roland, expertly took care of two groups in two languages. He entertained us, informed us and then helped us enjoy our beers by giving excellent tasting notes. It's a great experience from start to finish....More
Very informative for a reasonable price, you learn about the history of the brewery as long as loads about beer. At the end the free beer with your tour is unique as it is only available at the brewery! Any one who likes beer should...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 probably not as slammed as they were when I was there in July.
This said, the brewery is only a couple of blocks off the main square which was SWARMING with tourists, so I can't imagine it closes. Might just be a little chilly in parts of the brewery in January.
I love getting a "bird's eye view" when visiting new places. We are wondering if the view from the De Halve Maan Brewery is as good as the view from the Bell Tower? i.e. if we only have time for one of these, do you think we will be satisfied with the view from the Brewery rooftop? How high up is it? Thank you.

I'm not familiar with the views from the brewery, but I can confirm that the views from the belfort / bell tower are exceptionally good. You can view the city in any direction and you can see as far as the weather conditions permit (no other large building to obstruct the view). The view down to the immediate area is also good, such as the aerial view of the bars & cafes on the opposite side of the Markt square. This takes some beating. If the views from the brewery are any better,...More
De Halve Maan Brewery - time for lunch (5 Replies)
Hi, i've read lots of great reviews on Trip Advisor for the brewery tour and then having lunch - a couple of review mention that the restaurant closes before the tours do - can someone please advise the last ordering time/closing time of the restaurant in November please?

Hello, I have no idea really, but I don't mind calling them for you tomorrow when I'm in the (tourist) office. You're interested in lunch? Or dinner? Depending on which day you visit in November, the last tour starts at 15h00 (Mon-Fri), 16h00 (Sun) or 17h00 (Sat). The first tours are at 11h00 (every day). So I can't imagine there being a problem for lunch. Kind regards, Sabrina

Sunday day trip to Bruges. What should we do? (3 Replies)
My wife and I are taking a day trip from Brussels to Bruges on Sunday July 24th. Is it possible to fit all this into one day? A boat tour of the city, climbing the bell tower, seeing the Church of the Holy Blood (since its Sunday can we still see the vial that contains the blood of Jesus), or the only Michelangelo statue in Belgium, if possible a tour the De Halve Maan brewery...

I would try and take the SEGWAY tour which I found far more informative and interesting than the boat tour. if you opt for the 2 hour tour you will have covered most of the town.
