Weíve been a number of times and I must say I am fairly certain I had rated this, so not sure where my rating has gone. The last time we went here it was a friends birthday the owner gave him a large bottle of Lupulus to take away as a present. I would echo many of the comments from others, it is a friendly, slightly quirky place but one well worth popping into. I have chosen bottles from the shop part of the establishment and then drank them in the back part. It is a solid very down to earth place with extremely competive pricing in a town which is usually very expensive. I guess that we are likely to go here again today (Sat 6th Oct 2012)

A strange place. You walk in and you re not too sure if you are in a tiny beer store or in a small cafe. One or two small fridges on the right (if memory serves me right). You can buy beer to go or step in the back to drink in a less than classy but very eclectic environment. Selection-wise this was below average compared to other places in Brugge. Worth stopping by for the peculiarity of the place but only if you happen to walk by.

Part shop, part beer cafe, just on the east side of town, but not too remote. Run by Rudy who really loves Belgian beer, and was quite happy to talk about different styles and how he looks forward to being able to expand his selection. Great prices, I think the best Iíve seen in Belgium (but Iíve not been into a huge number of shops). Nice touches like instinctively wrapping the bottles weíd bought in bubblewrap. Has a pool table too by the looks of it. Also has some exotic bird at the back which repeatedly chirped what we were sure was írate beer, rate beerí.

What a fantastic find: This shop-cum-bar is two doors down from De Kelk and well worth walking those extra 10 yards. There are bigger beer stores with larger selections in Brugges, there are certainly smarter and better appointed drinking establishments, but this is special.
It is by far the cheapest and friendliest beershop/bar Iíve visited in Brugges. The cold fridge has all bottles at 2 Euro or 2.50 Euro to be drank at the back of the shop: there is a small bar area, plus a few tables and chairs. Toilets out the back are a little rural and rustic, but clean and absorbing.
I have now been back many, many times and still think it the best íhidden gemí in Brugge, even the wife likes walking out to it (she thinks it a bit grubby but lovely non-the-less).
Rudi and his wife are great people, we exchange beers on all my visits, I always buy a load as well. Love the place.

Small selection, but they had La Trappe Bockbier, that I didnít find elsewhere in Bruges, and one other I hadnít had (canít remember which one). Didnít stay for a beer, though. Located conveniently close to the Smatch supermarket (with the best beer selection in Bruges).

Best beer store in Bruges if you ask me. Not too many rare items, but lots of goodies at great value, the cheapest Iíve seen anywhere. The owner is also very friendly, opening the store for us after hours so we wouldnít run dry. Needless to say we did most of our beershopping here. Too bad their selection isnít that big compared to the other stores.

A really special place, in front of the small room, there is a tiny bottle-shop, next a bar and a couple of tables. Kind people, likes to chat. Has the normal belgian beers and some specials too. Cheap.

An interesting bar/bottle shop located away from the tourist traps in Bruges. The selection is limited but, still offers some good ones. The main advantage here is the prices. One of the cheapest in Bruges.

Visited October 2011. Shady beer and absinth shop in a quiet part of town, close to other hot spots such as Cambrinus, but without the hustle and bustle - thatís a place for beer lovers. An interesting selection that consists around 70 bottles. A couple of oilcloth-covered tables.
Well worth the visit, either for a short stop or for shopping.
