"Fun way to blow some time off. Sweet old brewery to say the least. The tour is a well oiled machine." Hard to disagree with any of that.

It was an interesting journey, trying to find this place while at the same time having no clue where it was other than directionally. We finally spotted another city map, went to read it, and noticed we were straight in front of the brewery. Nice.

Not an overly popular line of beers, but probably the easiest brewery to visit in the entire country. The tour was good, and in english. The views from the top of the brewery are solid and it was fun to watch people try to navigate all the stairs within. The tour includes just a full pour of the Brugse Zot, which was better than advertised. We also devoured some bitterballen and cheese out in the lovely terrace. I could have stayed for another, but there were bigger and better spots on the itinerary.

I'm glad we did it - it wasn't in my itinerary, but we just needed to kill a few hours

Fun way to blow some time off. Sweet old brewery to say the least. The tour is a well oiled machine. You are pushed on through. The beer is tasty as well. The highlight was a picture of the next young man in the family to get the brewery. He has a look on his face that is priceless...like "awww yeaaahhh".
Luck bastard!

Brouwerij De Halve Maan was on my shortlist of things to do when I was in Bruges for the day.

I planned on going on a tour, however, we got there too late; this was a MAJOR disappointment.

In fact, we got there about 20 minutes before they were closing. My friends and I sat down and ordered a round of the Blonde, Dubbel, Triple, and Quad. The Dubbel and Quad were my favorites.

The service was good and the ambiance of the courtyard was nice.

Ratings and review notes aside: being in Bruges, drinking Straffe Hendrik (at it's brewery) is something that I will never forget.

Very good beer, and the environment is pretty cool if you sit outside. The inside is clean, and well-lit, though otherwise unremarkable. There were only two beers on tap, though there were several more bottled beers to choose from. The staff was friendly and helpful. Recommended.
