My wife had her list of chocolate shops and I had my list of bars, at the very top of which was 't Brugs Beertje. This bar is on a side street of Brugges main shopping drag. The turning is right by the Neuhaus store, which is also worth a visit for its pralines.
The bar itself comprises two small rooms, of which the front is the cosiest, and affords a great view of all the happenings behind the counter. Daisy (the owner) was working when we popped by and gave us an excellent and extensive beer menu which was like a wish list of Belgian beers. She also brought out Bruges Zot and 't Smisje IPA+ to the table. All the right glassware, temperature and quality. Top notch service, and lots of character in the pub. There's really not much else you can ask for.

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!
