Reviewed April 29, 2014

very nice place - a mus do in Brugge - super beer degustation and also a very pleasant visit of the brewery .
If you visit Brugge without beein here you have missed a top attraction .
The tour is about 45 minutes and if you are a beer lover you can stay the rest of the day

“A must-do in Bruges”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We spent a great few hours in the brewery for the tour and had lunch in the restaurant after. The tour was fun and interesting, the guide we had was brilliant and kept us all entertained for the 45 minutes. We also learned lots of interesting facts about the history of the brewery and alcohol laws. We enjoyed our free beer in the restaurant after and stayed for lunch, the food and service were both great and reasonably priced. I would thoroughly recommend the whole experience.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Everything about this place is right. The guide is excellent with a good command of English, some knowledge of England and a great sense of humour. She was informative, knowledgeable and patient. The Brewery gives an insight into the process by which beer is made and also gives an insight into the history of Bruges. At the end of the tour there is an opportunity to taste the company's products, my only quibble is that a second drink would have been useful to confirm how good the first one had been.

“Fun 45 minute tour.”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

If a beer lover, you learn a lot about Belgian beer and how it is made. Good view of the city from the roof of the brewery. A treat to enjoy their unfiltered blond at the end of the tour.

“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Fantastic value. 7 Euros for the 45 minute tour, and you get a beer at the end included. The tour was informative and the guide was amusing. Steep steps during the tour so beware if you have difficulty with mobility. Afterwards, we had a drink in their brasserie which had a fantastic buzz about it.
