This place has always been packed when Iíve been there, on my most recent visit I sat next to the bar upstairs. Despite being so cramped, I usually get good service and their house beer, Tripel Van De Garre (brewed by Van Steenberge) is actually pretty decent, though dangerously strong - so watch out when walking down the steep staircase afterward.

Visited on Sunday as opening. Visited on a Sunday at opening. Beautiful, old, nicely decorated and with good light. Service was not really friendly, but at least it was rather quick. Selection isnít wide: thereís 3 beers on tap and some bottles, but you come here for the house beer - Tripel de Garre - on tap. Prices on beers are ok - Tripel de Garre is 4,25 euros for 250 ml -, most bottles were 25Ę/50Ę less than in other places in Bruges. The cheese assortment was quite pricey though, especially for the quantity. A nice place that worth a stop once if you are in Bruges.

Small pub in the backside of an alley in the centre. Tripel de garre housebeer from Van steenberge. Metallic and strong. Quite cozy and if you close the door to the toilet you Can hardly smell the urin. Friendly waitors.

Nice place, very well hidden in the center of Brugge. Usually they put up a sign, which makes it easier to find, because the only way to the bar is through a tiny alley. Many locals there, who seemed to feel pretty much at home there, which is always a goog signal for me to drink there, because it doesnít seem to be a tourist rip-off.
Of course we ordered a "Triple der Garre", which they offer exclusively only in that particular place. The beer was really pleasant, and gets served with some young cheese, which goes well with the beer.
The atmosphere in the place was enjoyable, people were chatting and drinking, got pretty loud later in the evening. Staminee de Garre has a country-sytle look, which somehow gets represented by its visitors. There is a maximum of three "Triple de Garre" you are allowed to drink, but this should not be a real concern, because after those three you should be able to fall asleep easily.

Cramped bar with plenty of atmosphere. The beer list isnít huge, but this place is worth visiting all the same.

Visited in October 2012.
So we were warned that this is hard to find and it took a good 20 minutes of wandering around the block before we went through the little opening (barely wide enough to walk through) in the wall between two candy shops. Sure enough, back about 50 yards was de Garre. Itís a pretty nice alley all things considered. Cobblestone and ivy and less tourists. The bar is confusing to me as it is a large building for a bar with two stories, but they donít serve food. They do have some cheese but no real food. There arenít any bar seats, just tables, and they wait on them like they would at a restaurant. The de Garre tripel was decent but not my favorite; it just seemed like the thing to order in this situation. With a group of people I could see this being a fun place to hang out for a hour or two to get away from the tourist trap that is Bruges. The service was surprisingly good here too. It must have been an off time but we had no issues getting seats.
