This place was a real find in Bruges, with a thick book listing all of the beers available - over 300! The staff were really helpful in recommending a good beer, given the huge choice. Just ask for a recommendation and they'll narrow down the choice by asking you questions about what kind of beer you like! Can get crowded, but don't let that turn you off going back later on. Ended up going here twice on our two night stay in Bruges, over the May bank holiday weekend.

We found this place on a tourist brochure and were amazed by the relaxed atmosphere (admittedly on a Sunday night) with really friendly (multi-lingual) service, and the huge beer selection is explained in their lengthy drinks list, and reasonably priced in this rather expensive city (I was pleasantly surprised that this bar was far less of a tourist trap than it might appear from adverts). And reading other reviews, we were obviously not the only ones impressed here.

If you understand some Dutch ask them for a comic book of the Brugges Bear, of which there are several statues on rooftops etc. around town.

Visited this great little bar 1st June - great atmosphere, fantastic choice of belgian brews, the real bonus was how knowledgeable the barman was about all the varieties, dark beer, light beer, fruit beer it was really good. We did have a toasted sandwich which was fine but this is a drinking house first & foremost & if you want a beer I couldn't reccommend a better place in Bruges. Incidentally, this was the place where we received the most genuinely friendly welcome of all the places we have visited in our 4 trips to Bruges.

Small but good atmospre bar with stout women serving 100's of beers. Many are 9% by volume so be careful otherwise you may wipe out the following day. Try the Liefmans, in the blue wrapper with the champagne cork closure - a real treat of a beer.

Apart from the atmosphere and 300 excellent beers on offer, the crowds who frequent this bar are cosmopolitan to say the least. Within my first hour, I'd chatted to locals, French, Americans and New Zealanders. You can't help but get into a conversation with people. If in Bruges, you have to visit this bar. It's one of a kind!
