SIMPLY - A MUST. I first visited the "Little Bruges Bear" during Easter 1994, and visit every time I am in Bruges or nearby. A relatively unknown place then, but a Belgium legend now. A beer list of over 200, coupled with classical music, educated beer tourists, amiable locals and helpful staff, all contribute to make this a never forget establishment. If you've been - you WILL want to return. Try to get into the back room and witness time completely evaporate as you drink beer with like minded people, amongst the plethora of Belgium advertisements, some from now sadly defunct Breweries. No Food, only Snacks. Bloody Hell - WHO CARES !!!! Fantastic - I want to retire in Bruges!!!.
The personification of Orwells "Moon Under Water"
- THE Perfect Bar.

Unfortunately I was here before I was truly educated in the ways of Belgian beer. This was back in college when I thought I knew everything.
I can't remember what I had but I remember being impressed with the selection of styles and varieties. Each beer comes in a glass matching the brand and is expertly poured for you (2 fingers of head!). I sat there for a few hours with my friend discussing the finer points of god knows what with a middle aged English couple who matched us drink for drink. I'm not too proud to say they drank us under the table.

great bar in a great city.

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 ...
