Amazing beer list. More importantly though – a knowledgeable staff – they know their beer. The staff made excellent suggestions for the type of beer that we liked. Would I recommend this place – YES. I wish we would have had more time to spend here.

I have frequented this wonderful pub on every trip to Bruges over the past few years. It has history dripping from the walls. It is mentioned in the sought after and hard to find 'Michael Jacksons Beers of Belgium' book and his picture is on the wall. Daisy (also in the book) is so friendly and will take the time... More

This place is hugely popular, so it can be hard to get a table... but it is worth going and taking what you can get! The beer is outstanding, huge collection and staff very knowledgeable. Even if you do end up sat up close and personal with people you don't know during busy periods, be reassured there is a a... More

On a busy Friday night in Bruges my wife and I were looking for a drink before dinner and ended up here. The place was packed but we were waved toward the back were we were seated in another room, not very visible from the front door. My wife asked for a kriek that was not too sweet and not... More

I have many of the available beers and accompanying glasses in my stores at home but,for authentic surroundings, you will find it difficult to beat the atmosphere and vibrancy of this proper Belgian beer bar. Always my first port of call when heading for a drink in this lovely city.

We were so sad that this was only open one of the nights we were in Bruges, it was awesome. We had a brilliant waiter who recommended some great beers. I don't even like beer and I loved what he brought me. My husband was in heaven. He gave us some really interesting information and it was just a great... More

Classic, friendly specialist beer house. You do not get a better range of beers in Bruges. .... and if you don't know just ask, or describe what you like to the staff and they'll find you a beer to suit. Always.

Fantastic friendly little bar with brilliant selection of beer on pump or in bottles. Just run up a tab and pay at the end of the night when you'll receive little hand written notes itemizing all your drinks, no fancy computerised touch screen receipt but no errors on our two visits.

Apparently this is the place to go in Bruges if you're into beer. It's a cozy, authentic bar with a great atmosphere. Of course there are lots of good Belgian beers to choose from. Ask Daisy, the owner, for a recommendation.
