Joined one of their - quite touristy - tours in which a superficial yet fun story about the brewing process and Halve Maan-specifuc history was told. The guide was knowledgeable and happy to get any non-obvious questions. View on the roof over Brugge is good too. Got to taste a freshly tapped Brugze Zot - of which I now know the name origin - which tasted well if not for the large crowd around us. I highly suggest going to see Brugge and this brewery (!), but do so off-season. (No need to spent precious good-weather time in a city like Brugge anyway.)

I was really looking forward to visting De Halve Maan but got a bit disappointed. The tour was rather quick and was told pretty uninterested. The patio outside was really good. We sat here a few times and enjoyed the great HM beers.

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.

Brugges only brewpub is situated between the city centre and the railway station. When I arrived at noon on a Monday there were already quite a few people drinking inside and at terrace outside. Inside the place is like a high ceilinged beer hall with one section for dining and one for just drinking. Polite service. Their beers list is not outstanding in numbers, but the Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel was a real treat (visited, 02.05.2010).

Tourist spot. You can try to drink unfiltered Blond.

We had a wonderful beertour and the food was great, you can’t expect from a brewery to have a great beerselection but the unfiltered Brugse Zot was heaven .

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.

This is a touristy, but fun brewery to visit. They serve their own beer and so they should. The food is excellent. A cheese platter with a couple pints of Zot. I could have spent all afternoon doing that. Worth a visit and tour. The tour includes a free beer to enjoy afterwards.
