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!

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!

Contrary to other reviews, we didn't feel so welcomed at this establishment. Place was small and jammed . We had to wave our waiter down just to order food and he said he would be back.

Draft selection was small, but the bottle list was huge. We got the typical cheese plate which was ok.

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.
