A Bruges institution. If you love Belgian beer, you'll know about this place already. If you don't, find it and advance your beer education. I had a 15-minute beergasm just perusing the menu. It's a cozy little joint down a cobbled alley 10 minutes from The Markt, atmosphere wonderful, staff wonderful, beer wonderful. If you can't find a beer you... More

We asked for recommendations and got some good choices and really useful info about the beer. Highly suggest you visit here if you enjoy your beer... More

The selections of beers here is just what you'd expect from a quality beer house in Belgium but the mixture of locals and tourists makes this a great spot to get really involved with the local beer culture. My wife isn't a beer drinker but... More

This place has a huge amount of beers so if you are looking for this kind of experience this is your place. If you have no idea of what kind of beer you would like to try out, ask the bartender for a recommendation! I highly reccomend St. Bernardus Wit beer.

Lovely bar, not touristic, huge range of beers, very welcoming. Tried a panic beer that they had on their list and it was opened and poured at our table. Would recommend as a London beer drinker to visitors wanting to try a wider range of Belgian beers.

Popped in for a swift 'un whilst the wife was shopping. Early evening atmosphere was nice and slow, everything very cool and calm. As ever Daisy was the ultimate host and from the extensive beer list I chose an excellent Smiske blond at around 6%. I hope to go in again later in the week, maybe with the Mrs next... More

Stopped here for one drink and ended up staying for hours. Such a cosy little place, very friendly staff and most importantly, there was hundreds of delicious beers to sample :)
