This is a great beer bar. Not easily located; you have to keep your eyes peeled for the narrow lane that runs between the buildings on the short Briedalstraat that links Markt to Burg. This is one of the busiest tourist streets in Bruges, but thankfully most people never notice this little lane. I say thankfully, because we need to keep space in the pub for people like us!
We visited on Sunday 22nd May 2005 at about 4pm (we had tried the day before, but no room). We found seating upstairs which was a non-smoking area, but the drinks are still brought to your table. Excellent extensive beer menu and I had the De Garre (house) Tripel which is served in its unique glass. There are only about 30 seats upstairs, but it is a lovely atmospheric room with nice classical music playing. The beer was served with a little helping of cheese. It was somewhat dearer than some nearby pubs, but well woth it. Don't miss it!
NOTE: Revisited on April 1st 2006. Glad to report that the same high standard maintained. The 2 beers on tap (other than the house tripel) were Gulden Draak and Witte van Celis.

Amazing little bar that will take you away from the bustle of tourists, and let you slow down to drink a glass of Belgium's finest. Went in the middle of the day (mid February), and it wasn't crowded at all. Plenty of beers to choose from, but I--like others--would definitely recommend the house tripel. Great experience, and it'll be my first stop the next time I'm in town.

The highlight of any Bruges visit. Amazing bar, set deep in a hidden alley. A few high quality beers on tap, none of which can compare to their house tripel. Get it. Several times. Buy a magnum, too. They don't sell the glasses, so don't be a dick and steal one. They literally count them and will chase you down if they notice one missing from your table. Not worth it. Just go and enjoy one of the most amazing places in the world of beer.
