I came here because this was one of the places to go in some magazine was this one. It wasn’t bad at all. They were pretty busy and everyone there was looking for good beer. i didn’t have any food but this place is definatly worth a look when in Brugge.

The one and only brewery of Brugge.There you can taste Brugse Zot Dubbel and the unfiltered Blond(much better than the filtered) and of course the excellent triple beer Straffe Hendrik 9. You can also visit the old museum-brewery. The food there is tasty but the prices are fair.I think its a must for whom he visits Brugge.

Only bad beer that I have had in Belgium, and I mean bad. DMS, watery, tannic, all three of them. Bad atmosphere, really sterile. Had to pay 5.50 EU for a tour of mostly the old non-working brewery by someone that did not know much of anything about brewing.

Though they only make 3 beers, this is a pretty decent brewery tour from the standpoint that the old brewing equipment is preserved so you can see how the "used to do it." The crowd, primarily composed of tourists, can get pretty thick, so you kind of feel like cattle getting herded throughout the place. There are some steep stairs, and the tour guide is constantly stopping and waiting for the elderly and those with a fear of heights to catch up, which is annoying. Once the tour is over, there is a beer garden and a beer hall where you can buy drafts and bottles of their limited products, all of which are decent, but nothing special. There is a restaurant too, though I did not eat there. If you’re hell bent on seeing a brewery while in Brugge, I guess this is your only real option, though your time is better spent elsewhere within the city.

Visited last year, did the brewery tour, which was nice, and enjoyed both of their Brugse Zot beers in the sun on their enclosed patio. Very touristy, but worth a short visit.

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon last March, we took the popular 11am tour which ranged all over the historic establishment, even up to the roof for a beautiful panoramic view of the city. The tourguide was informative and friendly and cracking jokes in the three languages she was reciting her schpiel in. Finishing up in the bar, a bright cavernous room playing accordian music and smelling of hops and yeast, we sampled one of their two beers available. Overall fun and relaxing, worth the trip but not enough beer selection to tempt a return visit.

According to them the only brewery really inside Bruges’ town center, and we went on the brewery tour (which they do in Dutch, English and French). They quickly show you the new brewery where they brew today, and then spend the rest of the time showing you the old brewery. Please note that you have to walk up and down some very steep stairs (240 steps in total, allegedly), so this tour might not be for everyone. Nice view from the top though! The 45 minute tour was €5 per person (in January), and it includes a glass of Brugse Zot at the end, so it is quite good value. Had both the normal and Dubbel on tap.

Large brewery building with an inner courtyard that is constantly crowded with tourists drinking beer and lines of tourists waiting for the facility tour. Two beers offered on tap when we were there, both are not so great, and we decided to not stick around too long as there is a lot of great spots to visit in Brugge and this place is certainly not one of them.
