A brewery right in the middle of Brugge and you would miss it if you were not looking for it. A really nice courtyard leading up to what looking like an old loading dock. Once up the stair the brewery is on the right and to the left a restaurant. You can tell it was converted to be a restaurant. Nice big windows with tons of natural light and a wall of old bottles on the wall, where I spotted and Hop Devil bottle and a Rolling Rock. I did not eat here, more just for the atmosphere and drinking a couple beers. The service was a bit slow, but it was during lunch and the servers were a bit busy. Neat and pretty cool nonetheless.

A shiny, modern brewery with a nice view of the water from the bar and restaurant. I arrived just as food service was ending but I'll make time for based on what I saw on the menu and on the tables of the other guests. Their beer selection is limited but exceptional. Service was slow.

Hard place to review!

Brewery tour was outstanding. The gift shop was nice. Food was good, beer was very good, service was excellent. Just too formal for me.

What a disgrace. Walked a mile from my house to get lunch here when they opened. Sat at a table and waited 30 minutes, flagging down service, with absolutely no response. Fortunately I packed a sandwich for my daughter, so she sat with me and ate that while I sat there in vain without even a nod in my direction. So to hell with this place, the staff, and the beer which I didn't get to taste, but which I assume is just as terrible. Avoid this dump like the plague. A disgrace to Belgian breweries.
