Ah yes, the "little bear" ...

When I stayed in Brugge back in 2000, this was the place I visited every single day / evening. Hundreds of beers to select from (about 6 on tap, over 300 in the bottle), quaint pub feel, outstanding service, and the small selection of pub type food did the job just fine -- my favourite being the cheese cubes served with mustard and parsley salt. If you want a "real meal" The Hobbit and its legendary dry-rub BBQ is next door.

Also, note that not all of the beers available are on the beer lists ... ask for something "special" and say hello to Daisy and her husband, who is a well-known local brewer.

Certainly not the biggest Belgian beer bar, but one of the best out there for many other reasons ...

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!
