Seems like this is more of a tourist gift and trinket shop than a beer store, but they do actually have a wide selection of Belgians, including many lambic and trappist bottles. I scored a gem (!!) of Chapeau Christmas Gueuze (lowest rated gueuze I havenít had yet, yay!). Lots of glassware but more was typical, and nearly no gueuze glasses, which is what we were searching for. Worth a visit if youíre just walking around south of city center, but certainly not the best store in town.

It is not totally bier, as there are lots of beer related items. However, I found 8 beers Iíd never rated without going more than a quarter of the way down the beer shelves. Someone is trying to provide variety. Even some uncomman French beers.

More a gift shop as a beer shop. Youíll find many beer-related items and a limited selection of bottles. By Belgium beer-store standard the selection is way below average. Youíll find most of these beers in good Belgium corner stores. No reason to visit this place unless you need a t-shirt.

Brugge has many beer shops and this one doesnít stick out as much as most, nor is it heavily advertised from the outside. It is part of a larger tourist store and can be easily missed if your head is down and itís raining, but once inside the beer shelves reveal some interesting beers and glasses. A lot of 0.25 cl bottles not stocked elsewhere within Brugge, so worth finding if you are intending on getting loads of different bottles while in the city. You are left alone to wander around and I had to ask to be served, not a problem, I didnít need any help, and I am sure they would have given advice if Iíd required any. They also have a rear room (away from the beer part) that has second hand glasses and beery stuff for sale (real, old signs and such like). I still prefer íDe Bierboomí for my bottles in Brugge, but this place is fine too.

Bright shop, looks a little touristy and souveneery from the outside. Donít be fooled - head inside, and go all the way back. Not a huge selection, but a very good range of quality beers from a lot of favourite brewers. Everyone from Alvinne, and Bie to Bruges Zot. Best of all - Black Albert. Decent prices too. Didnít need to put the service to the test, but cannot imagine they were unhelpful. Worth poking your nose into, definitely.

Visited in March 2007. The selection was smaller than on my previous visit the year before. As stated before, more of a gift shop but had some unusual Flanders beers.

Small beer selection with moire of a souvenirs shop feel. Look past the usual beer suspects and find little beer gems from Flanders for a decent price around 2Ä. I found a few nice bottles there for a reasonable price. The rest is overly pricey; Cantillon, Tilquin, etc are near triple their Brussels price. Not much of an atmosphere or service.

So Iíve been here all three trips to Bruges, and brought home some good stuff. The only place Iíve been able to buy Westvleteren - the last time, I had to ask since he didnít have it out ;) Huge selection of Belgian beers, including all 6 Trappists, with glassware, coasters, and a bunch of other stuff. They do a pretty good job of wrapping up each beer in newsparper to go, and also ship internationally.

Worth visiting, but not the best shop in the city. This is a good shop to visit for beer glasses, though. It also sells a lot of touristy gifts, and for some reason, it sells a lot of football shirts, including some fake ones.

Found this one by accident. Service was fine and the offering of miscellaney and brewerania was very good. Didnít see anything that couldnít be found easily elsewhere.
