Visited this establishment twice on our recent weekend (20th-23rd May 2005), and we were delighted that it was located just around the corner from our "bijou" hotel (Van Eyck).
It is an exceptional place for range of beers, atmosphere and service. We did not have anything to eat here though, so cannot comment on that score. Daisy was the maitre 'd and was pleasent and efficient.
I had a couple of St. Bernardus tripels on the first night and Maredsous 8 on the second visit. We also attempted to visit late on Saturday night, but the crowd were overflowing outside so for comfort we went elsewhere.
The only downside, can be the cigarette smoke. It could improve, if it made the second (inner) room smoke-free. Opens from 4pm to 1am (officially).

2006: visited on a couple of occasions early April. Once again, it can be a victim of it's own popularity. It was too packed and smoky on one occasion. The staff are as friendly and knowledgeable as ever. It still is a place to find great and unusual beers, including most offerings from 't Smisje.

Great selection and atmosphere, prompt service. We were having such a great time that we nearly missed the last train back to Brussels.

In my opinion, a precious gem. This barnot only exceeds all levels of expectations as far as selection goes, having three hundred plus beers, and the staff are so incredibly helpful. It had a rustic, local feel too it and it was a perfect way to start the evening. It was a quiet place to really just enjoy the beer!

Named "Bruges' Little Bear" the pub was opened in 1983 and has been a mecca for good beers ever since. This is another small building with tight, or intimate, seating. They offer 300 beers in bottle, with about 4 on tap. Tap beer is just not a big thing in Belgium. We ended up sitting next to a contingent of friendly folks from Sam Adams (Boston Beer Company) who were nearby for an industry conference in Ghent. These are some of the folks responsible for R&D and creators of the boundary pushing Barrel Room beers. We enjoyed discussing American and Belgian beers with those three quite a bit!

Since we had such an outrageous beer list to choose from my wife and I split a Cantillon Kriek and a Boon Mariage Parfait Kriek. Both were wonderful, but anything next to Cantillon pales...

I want to go back here, again and again!

A great little place off the beaten path in central Bruges. The atmosphere is quiet and comfortable, the service is friendly and the beer selection is solid. We split a 750ml bottle of Cantillon Cuvée St-Gilloise. It was awesome. I can't wait to go back!
