Worth stopping in if only for a look at the pricey magnums of Rochefort 8 (which I found both the 8 & 10 magnums in, go figure, Rochefort for a much more reasonable price) This is more of a high end grocery store with many of the samge design features that you see at Erasmus next door (same owner perhaps). The overall selection was basic and definitely tended towards the casual drinker. I enquired about the crate of Westvletern behind the counter and was aburptly told it was not for sale. While visually appealing, definitely save your Euros for the Tempel.

A touristy, trendy place but they have a solid beer list heavy in the Trappists and those like them. While the beer list is good, the location is the real draw. The back garden is awesome. I truly loved sitting outside on the canal sipping my beer and soaking up the city of Bruges.
I know most BAs would see this as too commercial but I say take it for what it is... a great setting to enjoy a great beer.

We got lucky and quickly found our way though the souvineer and chocolate area through to the "Beer Maze" of winding shelves. I wasn't particularly looking for anything, no achievement-unlock-list in hand, but the selection was pretty wide, but didn't appear very deep.
I did notice the sunlight streaming in the window and shining on an entire set of shelves of beer, some in green bottles. Perhaps the next reviewer can tell us what a skunked gueuze tastes like?
The restaurant/bar area was too crowded to bother wading in, though it was drizzling outside so maybe everyone was hiding inside.

Unfortunately for us we were there in the off season and it was a cold and rainy day so we didn't get to enjoy to outside view as we wanted.
Great beer selection and great atmosphere. The wall was my favourite and the store was amazing too.
We will be back for sure.

I have been to 2be multiple times on my trips to Brugge. There is nothing like enjoying a fine Belgian beer sitting on the canal. The views and the atmosphere make it such a great place to just sit, relax, and enjoy talking about beer and being in such a beautiful city. This place is known for its Beer Wall and is definitely a tourist destination. The selection of beer at the shop to take with you is great and the selection at the bar is pretty good too. I love this place and recommend that any Belgian beer lover to visit this place.

2be is a touristy place, but serves great beers in an enjoyable atmosphere. It is not intimate like 't Brugs, but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up in location. Fun to watch the tour boats streaming by in the canal. I think we stopped by a couple of times, and despite the selection of really good Belgian beers, the crowd does become a turn off. I highly recommend a stop at 2be, it is well worth a look, and you'll absolutely meet some tourists, so good to chat up. I do love the beer wall with it's umteen gazillion bottles and what fun looking at all those esoteric beer cased stacked to the ceiling. Don't embarass yourself and ask for a menu, it is hanging from the ceiling, attached to rubber bands, just reach up.

Went to see the "Beer Wall" containing all 780 Belgian beers.
Located in a nice building that was formerly the 15th century mayor of Brugge's residence.
THey had 8 beers on tap, in various sizes (.25, .3, .5L, up to 1-2-3L for several people). Had a Steen Brugge Tripel on the terrace, for about 3 Euro for a .33L chalice.
Keep in mind this is a touristy city, on a tourist trap street.
They have a great selection, slightly better but it is on-par with other beer shops in the city. I mix and matched and purchased 24 beers and a couple glasses. Little pricey however, you can find many of the same beers available in local grocery stores for nealy half the price.
