quality: 5 | service: 2 | selection: 5 | $$$

Neat beer store just down the road from Cambrinus, with a damn fine selection of Belgians. If you're after a Belgian beer you'd be unlucky not to find it here. There was even some Westy 8 in the cooler, though I decided not to partake. Prices seemed reasonable for a tourist area, although I'm sure some of these bottles could be found cheaper elsewhere.

My one complaint is that the service was actually pretty crap. The guy was slow and distracted, looking off into the distance. This was in stark contrast to the friendly lady at Bier Tempel in Brussels. Nonetheless, this is probably the place to go in Brugges.

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.

Had a great time here. They are knowledgeable and friendly, and sold me a bunch of beer to ship back (including Westvleteren). I absolutely love the giant walls of beer and beer glasses. If I ever come back to Brugge this is the shop I would come to.
