In one corner in the small square just of the south-east route from the main square a minutes walk away from the Bier Musuem. This bottle shop offers a niche selection not to be found elsewhere given it’s a brewery shop for De Struise, but it’s central location and unique selection are clearly taken advantage of given the huge mark-up on the bottles available here. Unless you’ve got a hankering for these ales or have already tried the several hundred other Belgian bottled beers on offer in this country you might be better trying other bottle shops for your take home brews.
Struise shop in the centre of Brugge. This was a stones throw from our hotel so popped in both days for a drink on my most recent visit (7th and 8th July ’12).
They have 3 beers on draft (bladder bags in fridge) and a moderate bottled selection of their own beers - maybe a dozen different ones on my visit but little in the way of rareties. They did however have a few bottles of Kabert left and the bloke working there (who kew his stuff) kept one back for me until I returned and collected it on my 2nd day. Definately worth popping in for a drink and to buy a few bottles if you’re in Brugge, just budget 15 or so minutes for this.
A good spot to get some Struise. The selection is solid and the value is pretty good as well. Mostly just bottles but they had a few beers on draft during my visit. Very friendly staff. The central location makes visiting this place pretty easy. Definitely worth stopping in if you are in Brugge.

I have popped into here again twice this year (2014) and on last visit just looked through the window 6th December 2014 I have to say it has been a little short on variety of selection of late and btw that is just not me saying that Loz said not sure why we’re bothering looking in there, there’ll be nothing new or interesting of note, though I guess if they had some Aardmonnick/Earthmonks, she’d have been happy (they haven’t on our last couple of visits) So whilst it is still a great little shop and is very well situated and staff (usually David) are friendly, I think that it needs to up its game a little, so I will have to reflect this in my slightly lower score of 76 I will keep popping by though in the hope of seeing something that will lure me in. Loz and I visited here on Sunday 13th November 2011 , tricky to find at first as Google maps shows it in the wrong area of the Brug sq. It is a small shop which I believe links through a small arcade. Stocks many of the Struise beer range along with a few beers that are available to try in the shop on draught. I understand that it closes at 6pm on a Sunday, though whether this was just the Sunday we were there or every Sunday I am not 100% sure. Friendly & knowledgeable staff, David was working there when we visited. Nice addition to the Brugge beer scene, nice also to pick up a couple of Aardmonnick/Earthmonks. Score 80
Little shop with stuff on the shelves, 3 taps, cold beers to drink in. Lots of good Struise stuff, taps were very interesting. Definitely worth a stop, though I wouldn’t rank it as a pilgrimage site. Would go weekly if it was in my neighborhood, though.

Nice little shop. Maybe 15 or 20 different Struise beers. Hard to tell as some labels vary for the same beer. Good assistance available. Conversation quickly went over my head on beer events. Good place to find Struise not usually seen in the U.S.
Nothing special here. They have all of the normal Struise offerings at a decent price, but you can find most of them all over town. Nothing besides Struise at the store, but I guess if you need to pick up a sixer or twelver for gifts, it’s a decent place to hit. Don’t expect anything special.
A concept store in really really downtown Brugges. They have three beers on tap to drink while you chat/browse and they promise to have 10 beers from the brewery on sale. They had a decent selection of stuff when I was there, but no black damnation which is what I was looking for. Service was friendly. The prices were high, and the selection I feel could have been better. Worth a stop in if you’re in Brugge, but don’t expect too much.
