Reviewed from notes dated May 23, 2013.

A-Beertje has a quant, pub-like feel, but the place was cleaner and better-lit than many pubs with big windows facing the street. The bar is near the main Markt Square of Brugge, but on a quieter street. The front room is small with four or five tables, and the bar holds no more than a half-dozen spots. Like so many Belgian establishments, there is a variety of beer paraphernalia on the walls. The place filled quickly with tourists like myself shortly after the 4:00-pm opening.

Q-The beer selection is full of great choices, but by this point in my trip, I was used to a substantial selection of Belgian bottles, and to be honest, there isn't much here that you can't find at numerous other establishments. However, that says more about the great places to drink beer in Belgium than the Beertje, and I could drink here every day of the week if I were in Brugge.

Ser-We sat at a table and the service was pretty typical. Not annoying or cloying (like American service can be), but definitely European in style in that you have to ask for what you want. The beers we ordered were, of course, served in proper glassware and poured with care.

Sel-As usual for Belgium, the tap list is small (six beers, I think), but unlike some other places, the taps here appeared to rotate regularly and included a decent spread of brews. The bottle list deserves its good reputation because there is plenty of great old-world brew to choose from.

F-We just nibbled on cheese cubes, which were pretty mediocre, but I can't rate the food because anything you can eat on a toothpick is tough to judge.

V-Prices were decent, if slightly higher than some other lesser-known bars around Brugge. (1,727 characters)

This place is what grabbing a beer at a Belgium pub is all about to me. Daisy and the staff are all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The selection is excellent, but the taps are limited (and weren't particularly exciting). (227 characters)

First stop on Brugges 2015, beer selection was great, I just wish they offered a couple of alternative styles to Belgian only offerings. I get that it's a Belgian beer bar, but I might have stayed more than 4 hours if they had a Gose or IPA palette cleanser.

Meet some awesome Britts on holiday, overall nice experience. Worth a visit! (336 characters)

Pretty neat place. It's places like this that make me understand where Belgian-style bars in the US get their ideas. Overall, I thought the vibe was nice, but it was HOT as hell in there, even on a cool April evening, and a lot of it was probably body heat, as at the front bar section you're pretty much elbow to elbow with your neighbors.

I got the best service here out of most or possibly all of the bars I visited in Belgium. I grabbed a bar seat, and got everything I needed within a reasonable time. I don't know, but it just seems to me in general that servers over here in Belgium are mostly honey badgers. But not at this bar.

Nice selection of beers, maybe not super rare whales that you'd think are all over the place here, but good Belgian staples and trappist items. Taplist was mainly pale ales and blondes and so on, so I opted for a fresh 375 of 3F Geuze. Snacky but satisfying food items. I went with the cheese and salami "nibbler," which kept me going fine.

Definitely a good place to visit, but as the saying goes: "if you don't like the heat, stay out of the kitchen." I was dripping with sweat when I walked out of the bar, and that's the only thing that would keep me from going there again. (1,218 characters)

Warm (literally and atmosphere-wise), welcoming pub with a great selection and prompt, knowledgable service. We were having such a great time that we nearly missed the last train back to Brussels. (197 characters)
