Visited during the late March 2006 whirlwind Beechum Belgium Tour.

After a pleasant dinner at the hotel Erasmus, I walked out into a semi-romantic, but damn cold drizzle and up the Wollenstraat to find this place. I made all the right turns, but still went too far. When they say this thing is in an alley, bub, they ain't kidding.

Stepping out of the rain and into the cozy, warm and inviting space I grabbed a chair and a menu and perused. Following the locals first rule I selected the house tripel, a beer that did much to chase away the chill.

They follow old school European service here with formal trays and presentation and a nice little snack bowl of cheese with every brew.

Overall a top notch place to visit in Brugge for just being hard enough to find to stay quiet while maintain a proud dedication to great beer.

We came to Brugge last year and did all the hard work to find it but De Garre was closed for construction. Fortunately it was open this time. What a place! I almost didn't go in because from my view at the door, it felt like I was interrupting a formal dinner party. But my wife urged me on and I was glad she did. Downstairs was full but upstairs was empty. It's so authentic and comfortable. We enjoyed the house tripel which was outstanding. No need to go through the menu for your first beer. This is truly a must visit in Brugge!

As mentioned in other reviews, blink and you might miss this tucked away gem. Down a narrow little alleyway in between the Markt and the Burg, is this excellent pub.

Small and cozy, we squeezed our way up the tight steep stairs to the 2nd floor and settled in for a glass of the delicious house Tripel. (How I wish I could have bought an empty glass to take home too)

I have to plead a bit of ignorance, because I came for the house beer only, and didn't even bother looking at the menu. But, I know the selection is solid.

Service was friendly and quick, even though they were fairly busy. In fact, I swear the girl that was pulling great drafts from the taps was maybe 18 years old, and she already had the skill mastered.

Fair and standard pricing.

Wonderful atmosphere and top notch beers, definitely made the effort to come here well worth it.

Nice place, very well hidden in the center of Brugge. Usually they put up a sign, which makes it easier to find, because the only way to the bar is through a tiny alley. Many locals there, who seemed to feel pretty much at home there, which is always a goog signal for me to drink there, because it doesn’t seem to be a tourist rip-off.
Of course we ordered a "Triple der Garre", which they offer exclusively only in that particular place. The beer was really pleasant, and gets served with some young cheese, which goes well with the beer.
The atmosphere in the place was enjoyable, people were chatting and drinking, got pretty loud later in the evening. Staminee de Garre has a country-sytle look, which somehow gets represented by its visitors. There is a maximum of three "Triple de Garre" you are allowed to drink, but this should not be a real concern, because after those three you should be able to fall asleep easily.

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.
