Visited October 2012.
Oh lordy. What a place. Actually the place itself isn’t that bad and the server wasn’t that bad even though we were ragging on his beer pretty harshly. It’s right in the Grote Markt so it’s kind of a no brainer to stop in at the brewery in the middle of the scenic old buildings but seriously the beer was god awful. Writing this rating is bringing back painful memories. We sat at a long table near the door and actually got half way decent service, a surprise for a Belgian stop. We ordered all the house beer which was luckily only four beers and there were conveniently four of us. Most of my time was spent laughing at our unfortunate situation. We only stuck around long enough to try all the beers and left for greener pastures. If they have good guest beers I could be convinced to come back. Until such a time I’ll continue to laugh at the fact that this is in my 10 worst breweries of all time list.

VEry nice, quickly served and nice selection of Belgian styles. I liked it specially since it is in the very heart of the city.

No ambiance. Service is fair. Selection is poor. Food is too expensive. I’m nice giving it an overall 10/20...

A dark place with the old defunct brew kettle at the entrance. The walls are dark red, dark stone floor and high dark wood panelling. The service is slow and the prices are quite high, probably because of the location, so they exploit the turists. No more of their own beers, but that is not a huge loss, since they were of poor quality as of late.

House beers no more offered, the waiter explained that they ceased brewing only temporarily due o a slow season but I doubt... A tourist rap, avoid!

Sort of a mix between a dive bar and a seedy tourist trap located in the centre centre. Bit like a brewpub alternative to a Pakistani run tourist shop – bit Belgian English pub looking interiors. Didn’t stay here too long, not much service which is not a catastrophe or that bad as far as I am concerned. Same few standard beers as everywhere else plus their own beers of which you can get a flight which is neat – you don’t get any explanation as to what is what. I find it hilarious that this place is called Brewers of the Big Market (their location), their ‘brewery’ is called brewery and their beers stuff like, dark and darker beer – hope they didn’t get dizzy from creativity :) The beers struggle a bit more to be drinkable liquid rather than beer, heavily metallic etc. stuff. You can try them once but that is sort of it. It is not a terrible as you might fear by the ratings here but it is pretty bad – that is for sure. You should come here only if you are really, really running out of tick or are into seedy stuff and you need a lair to scheme you evil, nasty deeds.
