It started raining so we decided to duck in the next place we came across and grab some lunch. Turned out it was Cambrinus. Not your traditional Belgian bar, this place has a new feel to it, and definitely more of a restaurant than a bar vibe. That is until the beer menu lands on the table with a thump. Its a veritable book! Scanning through I pick out something I've been after for a while - a Westy 8, while my wife picks some wit or other. The Westy arrives at the proper temperature and in the proper glassware. Great stuff! There will be more than enough to satisfy any beer lover between these pages.
Service is decent and speedy and the food we had was spectacular. It may have been Italian, and we may have been in Belgium, but it was amazing. Overall a very pleasant experience. It had even stopped raining by the time we left.

We ended up at Cambrinus just as the late dinner crowd was thinning, and seating was available. This place is one of the best beer bars in the city and the beer menu is a huge two inch thick beast with wooden covers! It took us quite some time to narrow down our options while faced with a seemingly endless amount to choose from. I ended up ordering a tart and wonderful Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, also sharing a Girardin Framboise and Rodenbach Vintage 2011 with our group. We did not eat there this time, but last trip we found the local Flemish fare to be wonderful and often included beer in the preparation. We finished by splitting a Pannepot strong ale from nearby brewers De Struise.
The place is usually packed, warm, and loud, but one of the best beer destinations in Bruges for sure.

Visited April 2, 2014. Nice size rest/brewery with a clean modern take on a belgian bierhouse. Menu very extensive ordered beer sausage cheese platter, a goat cheese and bacon salad, onion soup and tbone for 2 with cambrinus house sauce. Service was on point and very accomodating. Temperature was slightly hot so my heat sensitive sis made us move to a table in the back but was not a problem hence forth. The cambrinus logo looks like the drunk santa klaus ive imagined since childhood. Waitress was on top of her game as far as service goes but her knowlege of beer could have been better. All in all it was a great atmosphere with an extensive menu of food and beer and I would return upon my next visit to Brugge.
