I have toured my fair share of breweries in Europe as well as in the States, and this was by far one of my favorites. I don't remember the name of our tour guide, but she was very informative and funny throughout the tour. There were lots of stairs, some of them quite steep, but that added to the charm and fun of the tour. At one point, you go outside to the top of the building where you will have a wonderful view of the city of Bruges. And at the end, you get a glass of the Brugse Zot beer, which you can enjoy inside or in the courtyard outside. There is also a little gift shop where you can buy other beers made by the brewery. Overall a great experience and one of the highlights of our trip to Bruges!

Very interesting tour of the brewery. Our guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. You get a free glass of beer at the end of the tour, which was very tasty and you can enjoy in the lovely courtyard (if the weather allows). Admission is only €7 which I thought was great value. Definitely worth a visit.

This was an interesting tour, which was informative but not overly so. Just right for a quick overview and history of the brewery, with some details about the different types of beer and how they are made. Good view of Bruges from the rooftop. Lots of stairs (steep ones!), so you will have to be able to negotiate those to do the tour. All ends with a nice taste of the beer, so the 7 EUR to do the door is a reasonable price. The English tours seemed to fill up fast, so go early to reserve a spot.

Due to the recommendation of Patricia from the "Terrastje Cafe&Bistro" we found that nice little brewery. The tour trough the brewery was well explained and we could get an insight into this business.
A highlight is certainly the view above Brugge. At the end of the tour we received a unique unfiltered beer of this brewery.

The only private brewery left in Burges, we took the 45 minute tour which cost 7 euros each. The tours are done in English and two other languages. Good clear informative commentary. Be prepared to climb a lot of steep stairs but worth it to see the view of the city from the top of the building. A free cool beer at the end of the tour - and if you belive the commentary it will cure just about anything!! Worth a visit.
