quality: 5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | $$

First stop for take away beer on our trip and after visiting many other shops I'd still say this was my favourite. Located just steps off the market and on the same side as Cambrinus it's a small but well organized shop. Visited numerous times during our stay in Brugge and the service was always helpful and concise in that very Flemish sort of way. Very knowledgable and willing to help, while it's a shame I cannot speak a second language, they can easily assist you in English. The pricing was the best that I came across in the many stores that I visited (not including the grocery stores say if you're looking for the usual suspects such as Orval, Rochefort, Guiness SES etc) however for everything else they were outstanding. Aside from going to the Abbaye or the shop across the road in Westvleteren this was the least inexpensive location to purchase the three. The hours can be wonky so make sure you've got time to return if they're closed when you visit - well worth it! I wish this was my neighbourhood bottle shop.

*Note - I found it odd that the selection of saisons across the country was very limited, and the only place that had an extensive choice was in Roche en Ardenne.

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.

If you want it, they got it. This place is amazing, great selection and reasonable prices. Well laid out with really good service.

Centrally located, we were able to get a few beers for the hotel room and a few rare beers to take home.

Cool shop where we can't wait to go here again.
