“A proper gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Only sells Belgian beer. Off a side street down a little alley (and you do wonder if you have the right place), but rest assured its a fab bar to have a few beers in. Very civilised with good music (classical was playing when we were there). Lots of character and stays open late even on a Sunday. Seek it out its worth it. Its just off the main square.

“Great Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

My husband and I are not beer drinkers, but hey, when in Bruges. He had the house beer which is unique to this establishment and I had a peach lambic beer which was very sweet and delicious. I highly recommend the place - beer drinker or no.

“A bit stuffy, but quaint and atmospheric”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

The old-world charm and virtually secret location make this a bit of a gem. I can't imagine enjoying more than a pint as it is quite small and stuffy, but the service was great and the beer menu decent compared to many other places. If you're on a quest for quirky, rustic places to sample beer whilst in Bruges then this places is not to be missed.

“Top bar, great beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

I have been visiting Bruges for years now and whenever I go I always spend at least one night in this bar, once you actually find it, that is, as its tucked down a very small alleyway. The bar itself is a very simple place, uncomfortable chairs, plain tables, no frills and 2 floors of tightly packed together tables.......it's great ..... If you want fancy pants go somewhere else......the staff are friendly and helpful and knowledgable , the beer is presented to you in a menu of about 100 long, but you must try the house beer, it's the only place you can get it.....the beer gets delivered with a plate of cheese...nice...
The only problem with this place is that is a victim of its own success , it can get very busy, so be prepared to 1. Wait and 2. Sit with people you don't know , if there are 4 chairs at a table and there's only 2 of you, you will,have the staff put another 2 people with you, it's one way to meet people on holiday.....
In short.....go there.....and enjoy yourself

“Best Beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I found the place very easily, but that is down to be taking a picture that someone uploaded here! We found a table upstairs even though it was very busy (this was around 3pm on a Friday)
We all had the house tripel, and I must say it was the best beer that I have ever had. We left after one as we had a lot more places to try and didn't want to risk our chances with numerous 10.5% beers!
