Awesome brew tour, like walking through a museum. Tour guide spoke 3 langues fluently. Could have spent all day walkthink through the old brewery and enjoying their beers. Got there for the first tour of the day (11am) and had great service and not too many tourists. However, there was many more people waiting for then next tour so definitely worth getting there for the first tour of the day. Didn’t have any of the food but it looked good. Great beers, I preferred the Straffe Hendrik Triple over the Brugse Zot beers, but they are all excellent. Tour started out in the current brewery (brief) and then the rest of the time was through the old (now defunct) brewery. Like walking back through time, really amazing. The tour was sweetened by the view of Brugge from the top of the brewery. Tour comes with a free beer after and they have a cool courtyard area outside that would probably be a really great place to sit back and relax in warmer weather! A MUST stop if your in or near Brugge.

Great little place. De havle Mann brews Bruges Zot which is imported into the us after a fashion. The version at the brew pub is unfiltered and much better than the unfiltered bottles that reach the states. The courtyard and brewery is charming and a very nice way to spend the afternoon....a little bit secluded from the crowds of tourists on city streets.
NIce brewery they have some bar too. They give you one beer for the end of the ride. NIce place to sit and have a beer in a proper brewery. The woman who gives you the tour is very documented and also fun.
let me tell u one thing about brugge...it is one of the most picturestque places you will every see. go...not just for the beer but go to see how awesome this little town is. the beer here was probably more average to above average but more the ambiance of the place and the food was very good. the sign to the left in stone is a way to know if you found the place. there are better beer bars though.
Oldest brewery (and still active) in the heart of bruges.
If you visit this city take a break there!
They have very nice beers there olso, Brugse zot, str Hendrick.
My favorite is Straffe Hendrick Quadruppel (11°%) a very dark beer!
