Thought that I should get around to rating this place as Iíve been here many times over the years and as I will be in Brugge (probably) again tomorrow I may be in here again. It is up a easily missed little alleyway and is a cosy place on two levels, classical music is usually the only interruption from the chatter of others. I think that this place is best visited in the cold winter months. Well worth venturing into and the beer range is usually pretty good, possibly a tad pricey as I recall and service can be a bit iffy, also as others mention it can be descended on by hoards of tourists.

In some ways, this is the ideal place to drink Belgian beer...indeed just to drink beer. Itís a cozy, well-hidden bar that seems like itís been in operation since Brugge was still in the Hanseatic League. Drank a couple of delicious tripels with accompanying cheese and was in nerd heaven.

Visited in may 2011. Well hidden little beer bar between Burg and Markt. Good selection of Belgian beers and the place was almost full creating a good atmosphere. You get cheese plate with your beer.

Lovely beer cafe, very authentic looking classical at low volume. Beers are well presented on a small tray with a side of cheese. Prices are typical Ä3.50-5 most bottles nothing particularly rare other than their house tripel.

(Visited July 2012) Nice beer cafť, centrally located but quite easy to miss, since itís tucked away in a back alley. The place is quite small with interior dominated by red bricks and brown wood. Apart from the downstairs area, thereís also an area uppstairs. It could be hard to find a free table, but donít hesitate to share one with strangers, theyíre probably tourists too. Beer selection is quite good and varied, with the house triple (brewed by van Steenberge) as a must try (itís only available here). Good selection of bottled beers as well. Service was friendly and efficient. Food available as light bites, we shared a good mixed platter with sausages, cheese and kip-kap. Definitely worth a visit.

Have paid a number of visits here over the years although on the last 2 occasions Iíve attempted to itís been wedged full and Iíve had to turn around and head elsewhere - be warned!
2 floor venue connected by a rickety wooden staircase. Seating is a hotch potch of wooden chairs and tables (if you can get one!).
Solid bottle range numbering 100+ and they give you a small cheese plate on the house to go with your beers.
Good atmosphere, older crowd in general.
Worth popping in and itís really easy to miss the passageway !
Get there early !

Cool little place tucked into a sidestreet of Bruges. I like the beer selection, although it is not huge, it is good. Food Iím assuming is good, but I didnít have any. Value was pretty bloody good like most parochial Belgian bars.

A cosy little bar in the center of Bruges. with really limited seating (even though they have two floors) The best beer to try here is their house beer. They will not serve you more than three. Also, they have a good selection of Belgian beers on bottle. The cheese and saucisson served here was really good too.

Holy crap is this place hard to find. You have to go into a little tiny alley thatís quite easy to walk past. Itís very small inside (both down and upstairs). Four taps and a decent selection of bottles. Of course, you must try the house beer (the De Garre Tripel). They offer some small snacks like sandwiches and cheese.

Visited this place a couple of years ago while traveling through Belgium. It is a very difficult place to find, going through an alley. Good belgian beer selection, I would recommend it to a friend.
