Visited in March 2006.

Got completely, totally, unredeemably lost wandering around Brugge. I dont know why, but there you go. Ran into this place though and decided to give it a whirl.

The interior of the bar cafe is clean and proficient. Ran into a very nice English family there and we chatted while waiting for our tour to begin.

The bar folk seemed befuddled by my request for a beer before the tour started, but they got over it in a hurry. As mentioned previously you have a choice of a Blonde and a Bruin, both clean and non-offensive.

The tour itself is shockingly well worth the money and the climb through the old brewery spaces. If you don't worry about falling and cracking your head at least once you're not doing it right! For the brewer and historian in me this was well worth the stop!

The brewery tour was interesting and entertaining. The beer at the end was also nice. Go to the 1100 tour since the later ones get busy.

Very informative and well put together. It was a fun tour that felt just long enough to get the grasp of the brewery without going into elaborate detail about the specific beers. It was nice to see the historic side of the company in the pictures and displays.

This is an old historic brewery that has been updated in the 2000's and re branded to some extent. They have a great patio area nestled in a small courtyard between the brewery buildings and serve a limited food menu and their own beers out there. Taking advantage of the weather we sat outside and struck up a conversation with some neighboring tourists from Canada. I really enjoyed their Brugse Zot Belgian blonde ale that was bright and fresh and somewhat hoppy. My wife had the tasty Dubbel and I liked that as well. They have a full service restaurant inside the main building and also offer brewery tours in several languages through out the day. We went on the tour last visit and it is well worth the time--you get to walk across the old copper coolship to see a remarkable view of the city from the rooftop! This brewery is under rated as Belgian breweries go, but I think they have a good set of beers and a great vibe.
