Bruges was our first stop in Belgium, and 't Brugs Beertje happened to be our first bar as well. I had read great things about this place, and wasn't disappointed in the least.

Atmosphere was terrific... very cozy, friendly, and lots of beer crap all over the place. Our server (I've forgotten his name) was excellent; he had several suggestions for beers to start off with, and was very friendly and spoke perfect english.

Selection was outstanding... great menu, very detailed... could stay there all day. And even better were the prices - 4 quality beers came to about 11 Euro.

Saw a lot of beer bars in Bruges, and this was by far the best of them all.

The Bruges Bear is an absolute gem, even by Bruges standards!

The place is tiny, basically a bar and a living room with some rickety seats and tables, and a bunch of knick knacks on the walls. The feel is familial and inviting, and just the right amount of quirky.

As for the beer, well, it doesn't get much better than this. Five taps with good variety, and an insane bottle list of both all the staples of Belgian beer and some amazing guest bottles. Everything is of course presented in the correct glassware and poured with flair and skill. The people who work here know, understand and care about what they serve.

Didn't try food, but the platters of cheese and cured meats looked great.

This was the highlight of my visit to Bruges, and one of the 5 best bars I've ever been in. A MUST in Bruges.

Located on a narrow street of the main shopping street in the city - The Little Bear was my favorite place in Brugge - so sad I only hit it once due to the timing of things, but I loved the vibe and was so happy to meet Daisy who was so friendly, kind and attentive despite the place being pretty busy. The Little Bear is not a big place - basically two rooms with a small bar and small tables. Think lots of wood, a little old and a bit dank! Our party of five took over an entire corner of the backroom. Draft list was solid - nothing crazy, but better than most places in the city. Bottle list was quite good - I enjoyed some De Dolle beers and Daisy was happy to provide my family (non-beer drinkers) with some recommendations that made them all happy. Prices were the best in Brugge in my opinion. I had brought a few fresh pale ales and IPAs over from the States to gift and she kindly returned the favor by gifting me in return with a "little bear" and a pin to bring home. Generally speaking, you're not going to find the crazy draft list you would see in Brussels; however, I loved the vibe (a mix of locals, tourists and enthusiasts) and found 't Brugs Beertje to be in my top five beer bars to date. A must visit!

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).

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!
