Possibly our favourite bar, we never take advantage of their huge beer choice as we love their house brew and always drink that.

Although we didnít have much time to sit and stay for long, I really liked it here. Located down a rather hidden alleyway, this is a rather small, but very cozy and comfortable old house. Pretty decent beer list, but anyone is really there to try the house Tripel, which is a great beer btw. I would have loved to have stayed there for longer. Itís right in the heart of the tourist areas, but is so well hidden that it isnít overrun by tourists.

Nice wooden olde worlde place in Bruges. Good atmosphere and not a bad beer list. Had the local tripel which was pretty decent. We didnít stay too long but on a more leisurely trip would be happy to spend an afternoon or evening here.

Cool old traditional two teir establishment is Brugge. I hit my head on the wooden beam walking downstairs so be careful when you leave. Narrow stairs too.
I had a 3 Fonteinen with cheese samples. Beer list was commendable. The Trippel de Garre on tap was well conditioned. If it hadnít been for such a long drive I wouldíve gone for the trippel but the 3 Fonteinen does wonders on a dry throat. Great place to seek out. I would like to go back to try the food and more beer. Struise was available too. Awesome!

A restaurant and bar with seating on two floors. A really cozy and warm feel to the place even though it was relatively busy. The Tripel de Garre is served here with accompanying cheese. A wonderful Brugge experience.

Very nice place in a very old building in Brugge. Small but never felt that crowded. Good beer selection, fast service.

Down a tiny alley, up some stairs, and through an old wood door and youíve entered beer nirvana. They serve only ales and theyíre proud of it (as they should be). Old wood floors and tables add to the atmosphere. This is a beer connoiseurs dream. They do allow children. However, I would only take them if they can sit still and be calm.

Entrance is down a narrow passage. Good selection, but not the multi-hundreds of some. Good house beer. Cheese came with the beers. Service was pretty fast. Check what wimpie says below. Pretty much the case. Except the house beer was immediately suggested. Open on Wednesday when the little bear is not.

Into a small alley you find a small, nice characteristic bar. The interior is very classical: white walls with some classic paintings, wooden chairs and tables beautifully covered, wooden stairs to go to the upper place and mainly: a very clean interior. Very comfortable to sit, but not overwhelming. The service is also very good: they are generally polite, the beer is served very professional, with a covered wooden basket inclusive when you order a 75 cl bottle. However they donít suggest immediately a beer you should taste. The selection is nice, with some special beers on the beer card, but is not that extensive. You also can drink there the íDe Garre Tripelí, a beer brewed especially for this bar, which you can only drink there. Itís a pity that it is a little bar: you have to be lucky to have place left.

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon last March, itís a small smoky pub located down a small poky alley. Playing classical music, this old brick house definitely has some character and history. Beer selection was good (Read: great for a foreigner, average for a local), and staff was generally polite. Interesting to visit but, other than the cosy ambiance, nothing really wowy.
