Strange little shop this. Nice place for sure, but rather sparse shelves held about 8 Struise beers plus a few quite average random Belgian extras. And the Struise beers weren’t a lot more varied than what I found in other Bruges beer shops (at least the better ones). A good idea, more could be made of this...
Toute petite boutique où l’on peut trouver plusieurs produits intéressants de Struise. Service sympathique et efficace. Certaines bouteilles sont très chères (Black Albert) mais le reste est très abordable. On peut même déguster quelques produits sur place.

Strange place, I wouldn’t go there for the bottles specifically - some nice Struise of course but I would pick that up for a better price at the big Belgian beer stores. The magic of this small and at first hard to find place is enjoying some of the amazing and very reasonably priced Struise tap beers and meeting up with other like minded beer geeks. Service is great and extremely knowledgeable. Strongly recommended as a fantastic place to hang out, but not so much as a bottle shop.

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
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.
This bottle shop for De Struise beers only is on the centre of Bruges. The selection is on around 20 bottles of De Struise with really nice expensive price! Good place for De Struise beer if your bank account let you buy it!
Had a little beergeek moment looking around the store, which is pretty small actually. Got some nice vintages I haven’t had yet. Tried a beyond wonderful "Cuvée Delphine" from bottle. Service was excellent and we met the owner of De Kelk there. Prices are on the hefty side, but you get a lot bang for your buck with these delicious beers. It’s too bad there isn’t that much room to sit and comfortably enjoy your beer.
