Loads to explore and the lady owner was very willing to chat about the beers. Good prices too which was a bonus. Connected to this is their chocolate shop. Beer and chocolate heaven ! You can also sit down to sample a few jenevers

This store has a great selection of beers, even the Westvleteren, beer and glasses! Interesting also is the great number of things related to beers! A lot of funny and useful things to decorate

Not only is there a great selection of beers, glassware, and other unique liquors with good prices, but the lady who runs it was very knowledgeable about her products and very kind and patient. If we lived in Bruges this would be our liquor store. Wish we could have brought more rare (in the states) beers and glassware home.

The shop is good and friendly owners, this is a shop, they don,t do food. Think some reviewers are getting confused with Cambrinus bar near the Markt. Both good establishments.

We came to Bacchus Cornelius to try some Jenever. The lady who helped us was lovely & was happy to let us try a few types of Jenever so that we could choose which one to buy. A great wee store.

One of my favorite stops while in Bruges. A quaint little shop that houses a large collection of beers, liqueurs, glassware, etc.. Inge, the owner, was very gracious, and offered us a lot of tastings that helped us select our purchases. The chocolate gin is amazing, and she crafts her own specialty beer that stands with the best of them.... More

Knowledgeable staff here for the long term and worth patronizing much more than the newer kids on the block who could be selling soap powder for all they care. Well worth a visit.
