A two floors pub. A good selection of beer. Service was OK even though the place was quite packed. You get some free cheese next to the beer. A bit hard to find without a good map because itís in a very small alley that doenít appear on some maps.

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.

A bit of an enigma. It majors on being a solidly traditional place but is firmly on the tourist trai so you will often find it full of visitors with few if any locals in evidence. They have their own house beer made by Van Steenberghe which you wonít get elsewhere so itís worth visiting for that alone. Otherwise thereís plenty of interest in the beer list but itís not exceptional. Try to go at a quiet time, preferably just as it opens, otherwise you may struggle to get a seat. Hard to imagine a trip to Brugge without popping in here.

Fucking a, I love this place. Itís damn near impossible to find down a hidden alley. I enjoy sitting upstairs, though itís a fucking inferno up there during the summer. You are served a small cheese sampler with each beer, which is neato. Pretty good menu of Belgian brews, but no rare whales.

Maybe my first choice in town ... Very nice interior and staff very prepared about beer .. The house beer is more than good and the section probably the best in town with some rarity ... They donít do food if I donít remember wrong but we had some plate of cheese ...
