It is not totally bier, as there are lots of beer related items. However, I found 8 beers I’d 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.
I found it accidentally as i was walking down the streets of that astonishing place, Brugge. It is most likely a gift shop than a beer shop. It is like a custom mini market with its wooden awful shelves and it is full with souvenirs. Among them you can find a special corner with beers and breweriana. I found many x-mas bottles and some special x-mas glassware too. A variety of glassware and some of them are kind of old. I found a 20+ year-old Westvletteren glass in a very good price. I think it also has beer-coasters for sale. The service is very kind and helpful.If i visit Brugge again, i will definitely go there so as to search for more and collective glassware.
Also accidentally walked past it (in January), and it is basically a gift/souvenir shop with an alright beer selection. Standard Belgian selection, except the three crates of Westvleteren on the floor! Bought W12 for €6 and W6 for €5 (no W8) as a gift for a friend, so he ain’t complaining.
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 haven’t 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 you’re just walking around south of city center, but certainly not the best store in town.
I visited this place without R, just walked by it and walked in, had no idea this was even on the site (unnecessary now). This is basically a straight up tourist store that happens to have a little more beer than the other ones. There was nothing interesting here selection wise except American Budweiser, which there has to be called Bud. The good thing is they have a lot of glasses pairing with each beer. I saw 2 Rodenbach glasses for 3 Euro, even though I just paid more at Bier Temple. I was not even tempted to buy any beer. I did a good glass for .25 cents, sitting in the bargain bin outside the store. Skip it unless you are looking for a glass.

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.
I stopped in here to grab a couple bottles to take home. They had the Liefmans Kriek and La Trappe Dubbel that I grabbed at a reasonable price. The ladies working there were very nice. They even volunteered that shipping was way too expensive. This is a good retailer in a great town.
Man, Brugge is such a cool little town… it’s so clean and authentic it almost doesn’t seem like a factual place, but it is. I stumbled upon this bottle shop, souvenir store… a really nice selection of beers, probably 200 different bottles and a bunch off Belgian beer swag.
More a gift shop as a beer shop. You’ll find many beer-related items and a limited selection of bottles. By Belgium beer-store standard the selection is way below average. You’ll find most of these beers in good Belgium corner stores. No reason to visit this place unless you need a t-shirt.
