A must see place in Bruges, especially for beer lovers. It is the only remaining brewery in the city and it serves fabulous beer. Hop vines line the courtyard and create a pleasant atmosphere for enjoying a beer, and its in Bruges, the most beautiful city in Northern Europe, perhaps even the world. The tour is fantastic and includes a trip to the top of the brewery which has a magnificent view of the city. The beers are great. They have the Blonde and the Brune on tap. They are both great (That goes without saying in Belgium), though I prefer the Brune. They are both unfiltered at the brewery which gives them a little more mouth feel.

My wife, father and law and his wife all went to this place on our last day in Brugge (our only full day that is). Review from notes and my memory which will not likely fade for this place. We went on June 10th, 2009.

Atmosphere: Great with hundreds of (apparently) empty bottles of beer with an emphasis on Belgian and Europeans but I did spot a few American beer bottles (Rolling Rock was one), a long wooden bar and seating with tables for about 150. The setting could not be better, within the brewery for Brugse Zot and (currently) two other beers. Very nice old style copper taps.

Quality: Great in that all beer was served in the appropriate glassware, the same glass being provided for Brugse Zot and Brugse Zot Brune and a seperate glass provided for the tripel, Staffe Hendrik. Very nice place mats and covered silverware were also provided with the "De Halve Maan" logo on them.

Service: Very good with a willing bartender, kind waitress.

Selection: I was aware of only the three beers available but frankly I did not even seek out any other beers. Selection was as good as it needs to be.

Food: Just fine. People in my party had a beer cheese soup (A bit thin by our standards) and possibly a salad (but my memory is not great for the food there....I was focused on the beer!)

Value: My only recollection is that the value was just fine.

Bruges is an amazing beer city, and there are several great places to visit; De Halve Maan is certainly one of them. The main reason for visiting this place is the tour. Make sure to do the tour in English, and if possible get the guide named Matilda. She is hilarious and let there be no doubt: she loves beer!
The Brugse Zot beer is a great way to end the tour and the beer soup can be recommended! When you pay to do the tour - I think it was 5 €, which could've been a student discount - you get one beer included.
