I stopped in twice while a friend and I were staying in Brugge over the Thanksgiving Holiday. The store is small and I would imagine it gets really busy during the weekends and during high tourist season, but for two people it’s a nice set up. We were talking to one of the amazing staff and they said that they were thinking about doing a remodel to really utilize the space in the shop.

They had three beers on tap that you could do some beer tasting. We meet Bart the first time we were there and Dave the second day. Both were very knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. If you are planning to go and happen to have some old Beer Advocate magazines, Bart would greatly appreciate it. They both sat and talked about great beer and how they brew it. They both help brew Struise on their off days.

If you’re in Brugge this is a place you must visit. I’d say visit it twice so you can meet Bart and Dave.

Sort of hidden in plain site at the end of an indoor shopping area near a busy square. Stopped in right before we had to catch a bus back to Brussels after seeing Westvleteren in the the window. Quickly glancing at the other bottles it looked to have a lot of gems. Talked a little to the dude there and he seemed very knowledgeable. Prices were good. Would have loved to have stayed longer, but again- had some time pressures. Definitely leave yourself some time to browse on your visit to Bruges.

Small store but what they lack in variety of labels they make up for in the depth of beers from the labels carried. Huge variety of De Molen and De Struise, as might be expected. Also had relatively inexpensive Westys. Talking to the guy that ran the shop, they plan on adding more taps soon. When I was there they had a unique Struise, Tilquin and a De Molen. I picked up a 2008 Rio Reserva and a Cuvee Delphine. Prices were fair IMO. The Rio was easily half what I have seen it in the states. Expensive, but worth it.

On another note, sometimes random stuff pops out on the shelf evidently, including beers like Black Tuesday....
