Like everyone says, it's at the end of a little alley off the main square. Actually pretty easy to find, the street it is off of is short, just look for the small break in the buildings on your right as you walk from the square.
Place was pretty packed. No room downstairs so I headed up the extremely narrow winding stairs and met a server with a tray and had to head back down to let her pass. Once upstairs I took a seat by the window to look back down the alley. Fairly busy upstairs, a very large group of English tourists just sat down and had the waitress running up and down the stairs. When she got to me I ordered a Rochefort 10, this was my first chance to try one (can't seem to find them here in FLA) and what a great place to drink my first one. Beer came with a complimentary small plate of cheeses. Wonderful cheese and of course a wonderful beer.
Place was great but crowded. Highly recommend seeking it out if in Brugge.

If you go to Bruges, you have to visit the Garre.
I was born in Bruges and worked in touristic center of Bruges for 10 years.
This place and his atmosphere is one of the best in Bruges, also the prices.
Not everyone will like the house beer but the menu gives you a range of very good belgian beers.
Service is very good.

We have visited this place like 13 times now. Service is slow even for Europe. I learned to order 3 tripels and just let them stare.
last time was March 2013
No smoking now upstairs.
Rewriting this a little. We have been here 10 times over the last few years, and we had visited long ago in the late 90's.
ok 1 bad expereince:
Last visit got beer downstairs in early April 2008, the downstairs was packed (and so smokey you could not see across the room)and we had no choice but to head upstairs. We got up there and drank what we had and even got another 1, but this was while a family, who knows who, but locals I am sure, were eating lunch! i did not think about at the time, but this had happened before at lunch time, and I only remembered after looking at pictures we have. Anyway after they left and the guy cleaned up we got abandoned. I mean we sit up an hour and no 1 came, but they sure did want the cash when I went downstairs. LOL but the place was still packed so we left.
Still if you do not smoke stay away if smoke bugs you.
So I say go for the de garre tripel but there are much better places in Bruges, now things change some if you go in the Off seasons, and in winter well things are really different.
So while I still say its a must see, I say if your there in MAY thru September avoid the place in the daytime.
Garre go there or miss out.
of course the tripel is the draw other wise you can get most of the same beer anywhere in Belgium. No food normally but the cheese is damn good.
