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.

After an unsuccessful attempt to enjoy some Westvleteren beers at the abbey (it was closed), we decided to check out Brugge on the way back.. De Bier Temple is located within less than a five minutes walk from the city center. It isn't a big store in terms of square footage, yet if you're looking for fine Belgian beer and glassware, the selection is impressive.. they have a lot of beers that I wouldn't be able to find in Chicago, including Westvleteren.
The staff was extremely professional and friendly. We chatted with the cashier and browsed the selection for about ten minutes after the store had closed.. we had purchased six bottles of Westy 12, a Westvleteren chalice, and a bottle of Cantillon Gueuze 100% Lambic Bio.. all of these items were carefully wrapped and packaged for us.
All in all, I'm glad I stopped in De Bier Temple.. it's definitely worth stopping in if you're in the area.

Great selection but definetly the tourist stop (not tourist trap)to get those hard to finds which means higher prices. However, the do have a ridiculous selection and a very cool atmosphere.
Lots of gift packs for samplers or gifts to bring home for any beer lover.
There's a great selection of glassware too and when I was there last year they allowed you to mix 6 packs.
If you are reading this you will want to at least check it out to be in awe of place and wish it were located in your hometown.

I was told this is the place to pick up some bottles. This is just a twenty feet away from the main square in town. Tons of bottles, glassware, hats, shirts, and well everything you can think of Belgian Beer. After some looking I asked for Westy, they asked how many of each do I want. Stupid me asked, how many you got... they showed me...it was like porn...cases of 12, yes cases. I only got two, because I have been so blessed on this trip with everything else, I could not be greedy. Go in here, you almost can't leave.
