This is a charming little pub that hasn't been ruined by modernisation or redecoration. The liquid menu has around 150 beers on it so not easy to choose. I struck to the draft beers. It's not open every day so check before visiting, and it's incredibly popular. I went on a Thursday and it had only opened at 4pm. I... More

Great place with a lot of character and friendly staff. If you want to try beer from every region in Belgium then this is the spot. Even though they forgot our plate of cheese and salami, we forgave them!

So many beers! Friendly staff, some tasty beer snacks, and cozy, tightly-packed tables. Just a great, little bar with lots of beer paraphernalia on the walls. Go and try it now!

Saturday Evening, bar was packed. We were lucky to get 2 seats at the bar after some waiting time. Huge selection of bottled beer, only 4 on tap, but well selected to cover broad range of tastes. Walls covered with old beer advertisement. Overall a typical beer bar where one feels well to spend some time with friends.

Not only was this the nicest staff we encountered in Bruges but the Beer selection is spectacular. This place is pretty small so be prepared for a crowd and get the cheese and sausage. Delish. This bar is a must visit while visiting Brugge.

I never went to a bar with such an extensive choice of beers. I luved it. The only bad thing was I got a little bit too drunk after tasting so much beers, but nevertheless a nice experience.

We were recommended to try this place from a friend and were not dissapointed. The staff were great really friendly and knowledgeable and they also served wine! This might be a bad thing for some but as someone who has only just started drinking beer it was too much after 2 days so needed something a bit lighter. Dont worry... More

Fantastic selection of beers served by charming and knowledgeable staff in a very relaxed atmosphere. I love the sweet, fruit beers, my daughter prefers the stronger honey/wheat beers and my wife goes straight for the bitterest battery acid she can find - and would you believe this wonderful place found beers for us that we all loved (and of course...
