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 :)

We read about this pub in a Top 10 things to do publication and we weren't disappointed. With almost 300 beers we thought it would be a big place but were pleasantly surprised by a quaint pub staffed by greater staff. They asked us a series of questions to help us select a great beer to try. We stayed here... More

Was pleased with the variety offered. Tried some Lambics (which are an acquired taste) and the staff was really helpful in easing me in to some outstanding brew. This is the place to go if you want to experience Belgian beer in a place that feels like it was left behind in time.

We nicknames this place "Bertie Beatles" If you want to sample the best beer that Belgium can produce in a great atmosphere then this is the place. Took two friends from Australia there for the first time and gave them a sample of top quality trappist beers. We did get into a bit of trouble because we were late meeting... More

The usual beers you can find in any odd cafe, Brugse Zot, de Koninck, de Halve Maan. You'd expect much more in a 'beer cafe'.

Upon reading reviews on trip advisor I decided to make this my first bar stop in Bruges. It became my spot every night I was there! The staff is awesome, the beer selection is wide, and the locals and tourists are all welcoming. I was at the bar all three nights - got to know the staff who are wonderful... More

If you're in Bruges you have to stop by - down a quiet little street, this pub boasts over 300 different beers for you to try! Bigger than it looks with "'t Brugs Beertje 2" at the back!
