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

De Kelk is probably one of the best beer bars I have ever come across, easily the best bar in Brugge. Aside from the cool chilled out vibe and good music, what really makes this a great place is the huge selection of beer available (some of the rare and unique stuff is not on the menu so you’ll have to ask), loads of stuff from Struise, De Molen, not to mention the excellent selection of Lambic and Geuze for all the sour fans. The owner, Jeroen is really helpful and knows his product inside out with great recommendations and no bullshit, he will happily talk beer with the customers and even gave me a tour of the place which is home to some pretty top shelf stuff and a kitted out tasting bar for special events. If you are ever in Brugge, De Kelk is an absolute must!

Great place to spend evening (there also small shop nearby with good local beer selection). De Kelk got pretty good beer selection (i first tried Hardcore IPA and Black Albert here) for any taste. Place is small but very cozy. If you can’t make your choice – owner/barmen will help you with pleasure.

De kelk is a great beer enthusiast bar. The guy who owns and runs the bar has a world of knowledge about beer can help you on your important decision.
Great atmosphere and just a cool little bar a must see when in Bruges

De Kelk is a fantastic place! The owner is one of the most beer knowledgeable guys I´ve met, so if you want to talk about and drink good beer you are in the right place! That goes for just drinking the beer I guess. De Kelk has an interesting selection of beers mostly Belgian; all the trappists and much from Struise and De Molen, but also some foreign beers. The beer menu is extensive and reasonably priced. Some of the exclusive, aged and/or special beers are not induced in the menu so talk to the owner, he has wast amounts of beer in storage. The bar itself has a genuine feeling to it with beer bottles on shelves everywhere. I can recommend a visit to Bruges it is a beautiful city, and when you do visit De Kelk.

I had a great time here with my girlfriend at this bar. The owner is a great guy. He showed us his impressive collection of old beercases. The selection is good. A lot of belgium beers and some foreign beers. Also a lot of very exclusive beers.
We were there on a saterday evening and we were the only one around there. Its not a bar full with tourists. Its more a bar for the locals.
