Luckfully I read the comments on the Garre before I went over there, so I found this tiny pub immediately. I loved the cosiness of the place. Nice selection, but not very exclusive compared to some other beerpubs.

Easy enough to find as long as you keep walking along the right hand side between market and burg. Nice selection, and a wonderful house tripel. Nothing too rare, but lots of good beer. Did not try any food here apart from the complimentary cheese.

One of those less user friendly bars, where they donít inform you of the abvs of the beers on the list: my buddy had a draught 10.5% Gulden Draak, which the waitress described as only fairly strong! Tucked away, this is a relaxing bar, with a nice list, although they wonít let you stand - get a chair or get out!

We walked by the opening to this place twice despite getting directions. We just didnít see the hole you had to go through for it. When we found it we got lucky as there were still a few tables left upstairs. Had the triple de Garre. Nice beer! Had a few others before departing. Had nice conversation with a Canadian and his German girlfriend while there. Great place with friendly service.

Great Range, friendly and knowledgeable staff, superb atmosphere. Go to Brugge in the winter if you donít like it busy!

Very hard to find. Lies in an alley on the right hand just in the middle of Breidelstrasse when you walk from Markt to Burg. Very nice place indeed. Was packed the 3 times we were there, but we didnít really have any trouble finding a table. The other guests are willing to share a table if necessary. Service is great. Had the same waiter all 3 days, and he was friendly and helpful. Good knowledge in beers. The Tripel du Garre is worth the whole visit. Do what you can to find this place.

Nov 2003: Impossible to find and so packed when we did find it that we couldnít get a seat. We were told to leave. Oh well. Rerate Nov 2004: sat upstairs in the nonsmoking section even though I wanted to smoke but it was too busy downstairs. We ended up getting a table downstairs after our first round. Waiters were friendly. Served a small dish of cheese cubes with each round. Nice local atmosphere. A cool place to hang if you can get in.

Great place to take a break from sightseeing in Bruges. Worth the search for the all-but-invisible alley (tip: don't look above the crowd for a 'break' in the side of the building ... look for a doorway in the wall). Great selection, including a beer brewed especially for them (http://ratebeer.com/ratings/beer/showbeer.asp?beerID=27985). Gets crowded quickly, so get there early.

Impossible to find (it's down an alley that looks like it's private), but wonderful when you do. Beautiful old European 2-level building, with lots of great beers for the asking. Warning -- they don't take credit cards.
