Yea, solid selection. But no clue why this is rated so highly. Had Fou Fone and other Cantillon on the menu (only €11.75 for Fou) but only Kriek and Rose actually in stock. Westy Blond and 8 also on menu and out of stock. Poor service overall. Food was below Chili’s level. Very disappointed. While for an American, drinking 2 Cantillons and a Westy 12 with lunch is awesome, these are all over the local shop shelves and there were no other things nice about this place. Stop in I guess, but better places to eat with a fine beer selection everywhere. Seriously this place is a major tourist trap ambiance.

Quite a bit smaller than it's Brussels sibling, and to be honest, the selection is just a fraction of what you'll find at the Brussels Biertempel.

I snagged a Horal's Tour de Gueuze, but as I suspected, if I had rolled the dice and waited to the Brussels portion of the trip I would have saved a few Euros. Decent selection of other "standard" lambics, but if you're like us and visiting Brugge prior to Brussels, you'd be advised not to pull the trigger on any of those Brussels-based beers prior to getting to Brussels.

The glassware selection is very solid - snagged one of those really fantastic De Dolle Oerbier wine glasses.

Probably the most consistent selection in Brugge, but not anywhere near as good as the Brussels location.

A great shop! Lots of bottles and good space. But many of the offerings seem to be readily available beers. They didn't seem to have anything rare and were light on sours. I also picked up a nice Rodenbach tin tacker for my pub room. Well worth a visit!

Just about the only beer shop I pop into and don’t buy a beer when in Brugge: just a tourist trap really, like the one in Brussels.

To be fair however it is bright and clean, always has a good display in the front windows and is full of beery souvenirs as well as bottles; both single and in presentation packs for the folks back home. Staff friendly enough.

Over priced in my opinion and caters for the occasional Belgian beer drinker, not a serious Belgian beer hunter.
