This place can be noisy but is a must visit when in Bruges as it is the only standing brewery in the city! Take the tour, get an insight into the history of the brewery, enjoy the view from the roof, and drink your glass of fresh, unfiltered Brugse Zot at the end! A very nice experience.
Had the brewery tour and a nice glass of unfiltered Brugse Zot afterwards. Fairly nice tour of the brewery with great views from the roof. Friendly guide, but certainly got the feeling of a tourist machinery there. Nice place, but a bit too crowded and touristy for my taste. Worth a visit.
Quite modern ambiance, mainly tourist as visitors. Located in beautiful Brugge. Nice staff, not too large selection. Also visited shop for a bottle of 2014 Heritage, which we shall drink with Christmas. Nice to have seen.
In a pretty square and backing onto the southern part of the canal that dissects the central ring of Brugge, this brewery is one of the main tourist attractions in the city, so expect to find people here. The tour is just one of three reasons to come here, perhaps the best being the large converted warehouse room that is a Brasserie overlooking the canal. Food of course is served here but the beer has only travelled a few metres from where it is produced, albeit youíll be limited to the breweries own selection. Itís a lovely place to relax in though. Thereís a bottle shop here too also limited to the breweries products, and the beer is over a Euro more expensive here than in the supermarkets in the city centre. You do not have to go on the tour to access the Brasserie or shop and all are accessed via the inner courtyard beyond the entrance. If they are brewing you should be able to smell it in the air before you even get close to the brewery.
This place was crowded to the point of absurdity when I was here to try the unfiltered Brugse Zot straight from the lagering tanks. If you like this beer itís worth a quick visit. Selection is disappoingly limited though, no Straffe Hendrik from draught?!
Packed with people who went on the brewery tour (I didnít). The only real reason to go here is to get Zot unfiltered Blonde and Bruin which tasted nice, apart from that no real point in going for a beery person.
2014.06 - brouwerijbezoek met de Gentse Biervereniging - gezellig brouwerijgebeuren : aanlokkelijk terras (hapje/drankje) op binnenkoer, eigen bierwinkel, mooie hedendaagse gelagzaal (brasserie) voor weerom een hapje of drankje EN mogelijkheid tot brouwerijbezoek. Onze gids was alvast kundig (informatief en entertainend). Bierkeuze beperkt. Vooralsnog niet ter plaatse gegeten, maar dat zal alsnog later zeker gebeuren.
