Halfway down a very small alleyway hardly noticeable but found opposite the imposing Beer Experience Museum just off the main square. This is a small and intimate two floored-two room beer house. It has a predominantly wooden design in all aspects on both floors with a head hitting winding stairway to get up to the upper level. There’s active bars on both floors and small tables seating up to four crammed into what spaces are left. It’s all open plan so those below can see the floor above and vice versa. The beer selection is extensive, although it you take too much time deciding you’ll probably get the house beer pushed upon you.

Very lovely little place. Food is only nibbles and basic, so don’t plan on eating here! The house De Garre beer is very nice and comes with some cheese nibbles each time. This is very popular and we queued at opening time at 12pm. Good selection, service is a little slow and it is on 3 floors, so always try upstairs should the entry one looked packed.

This place is very well hidden in an alley of about a meter wide. The place is cosy and as expected pretty small. It was crowded when we visited and we had to go to the second floor to find an empty seat. But even on the second floor service was good and quick. Not the best bar I visited in Bruges, but I had a good time here and their own beer is excellent. Recommended for sure.

Located in possibly the narrowest lane of Brugge, just off the main square, this tiny, teddy-bear-like place is a nice refuge from the busy, touristy Markt. The café boasts two floors, but there is hardly room for more than 30 people - everything is tiny here. Except the selection, that is. The 120+ bottles include both well-known and good Belgian brews, and one of the four taps has the venue’s own lethal stuff. The staff are very helpful. No main courses but decent snacks. Okay prices. Might be back again some day.

This place has always been packed when I’ve been there, on my most recent visit I sat next to the bar upstairs. Despite being so cramped, I usually get good service and their house beer, Tripel Van De Garre (brewed by Van Steenberge) is actually pretty decent, though dangerously strong - so watch out when walking down the steep staircase afterward.

Visited on Sunday as opening. Visited on a Sunday at opening. Beautiful, old, nicely decorated and with good light. Service was not really friendly, but at least it was rather quick. Selection isn’t wide: there’s 3 beers on tap and some bottles, but you come here for the house beer - Tripel de Garre - on tap. Prices on beers are ok - Tripel de Garre is 4,25 euros for 250 ml -, most bottles were 25¢/50¢ less than in other places in Bruges. The cheese assortment was quite pricey though, especially for the quantity. A nice place that worth a stop once if you are in Bruges.
