Visited on Friday 17th October between 8 and 9.30pm.
The place has a cozy cafe/bar feel to it, wooden floors and fairly dimly lit, medium in size, walls adorned with breweriana.
I think the only thing that let this place down on the ambiance front for me was that it was completely dead. I think there were 3 other people there on a Friday evening at I time I thought would warrant many more, perhaps this was due to its relative ’out of town’ location, but it’s still only a 7/8 minute walk to the markt/burg.
The manager did say the place would get busy later, so perhaps pencil in a late evening visit if you want more atmosphere?!
Selection was solid, 150 or so bottles in a well laid out menu plus a few rareties, De Neve geuze for one, but you do of course pay for it.
They also stocked a good selection of De Molen in bottles plus they have a house beer, a quad that was pretty good.
Service was friendly and attentive and the guy knew the menu and was also helpful in finding somewhere for us to charge our phones.
In all well worth a trip out here for a few ticks.

Small dark bar a bit outside the center, close to Bierboom. Only two or three locals hanging out on my visit on a Saturday evening. Lots of lambics and Struise and other special beers. They have their own house brews as well, but the bartender wouldn’t let me buy one because he was not happy with how they had turned out. He gave me a free sample though, and also some cake. Nice place.

A bit from the city centre but very well worth a visit! Wide selection of beer specialties including a large variety of gueuze beers, Struise Brouwers collection and beers from brewery De Molen.
They’re on the brink of introducing their very own developed beer, first batch was made and to my opinion, it’s a great one!

A pub for beer enthusiasts, local, tourists, ... on a short walk from the noise of the touristic center. There is a broad selection of Belgian beers available, with a focus on gueze and Struise Brouwers. The bartender knows a lot about the beers and can help you make your choice. Now and then he opens a bottle of some special beer and shares it with his customers. The big difference with most other (and larger) beer pubs is the personal contact with the staff!

Odd, dark, quirky little pub with a very good, but sometimes very expensive, beer menu. Several beers asked for were not available. Worth the walk down Langestraat but note the limited opening times.

Went there on saturday for the big De Molen tasting they hosted! So I should go back and re-rate on a regular evening. But still, I rate this, because we were a little early and went to the bar for like half an hour to have the Boon Lambic Foeder #10, which was on, just when we arrived. Seems like a really cool beerplace! Owner Jeroen is a really friendly and knowledgeble guy!!

Went here late on a Monday night. Place was nearly empty. Ordered a SVEA IPA and a Pannepeut. Chatted with the owner over Westvleteren as he disappeared in a backroom.He came back with a 5 year aged W 12 which he opened and shared with us. Thats top service. Pub is rather dark and student like but I like it. Selection is verz good, Struise and some rarities in the vaults. Recommended.

Very nice trip. Small little place but adorned with lots of cool bottles. Decent sized bottle list and a good tap list. The bar seemed to have a mix of tourists, beer geeks, and guys just looking to get a quick buzz. If you are in Brugges, I would recommend it

Belgians take pride in their beer; and they’re careful to serve each in its correct glass. So I was a little horrified when the student behind the bar here served me the wrong beer - and even after I pointed it out all he did was apologize for not having the one I asked for!
The range is good; but most bars in Bruge have a good range. And this place had some losers sleeping on the bar. Nuff said
