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!

Hard place to review!

Brewery tour was outstanding. The gift shop was nice. Food was good, beer was very good, service was excellent. Just too formal for me.

What a disgrace. Walked a mile from my house to get lunch here when they opened. Sat at a table and waited 30 minutes, flagging down service, with absolutely no response. Fortunately I packed a sandwich for my daughter, so she sat with me and ate that while I sat there in vain without even a nod in my direction. So to hell with this place, the staff, and the beer which I didn't get to taste, but which I assume is just as terrible. Avoid this dump like the plague.
