One of the many beerbars in Brugge. Small terras in the street that closes at 19:00 so we need to go inside which isnít a punishment at all. There is a big bar and multiple rooms that have all a great atmosphere. Lots of beer logoís and bottles. The front is a smoke area and in the back there is a no smoking area. This pubs just tells you that you can have a good time here and donít need to be worried that someone looks you bad for having drunk a little bit too much. Very rare in this more serious becoming society. The service is good, friendly and know the beers they serve. The selection is very good with lots of great Belgian beers, even from microbreweryís like Struise. They have almost any Smisje beer, so I you still want to taste some Smisje you definetly need to come visit this bar. The food is also very good, especially the spaghetti was great. Good value. Overall a superb beerbar in Brugge!
I took a 2 hour train from Brussels to get to this place, stayed here for a few hours and went back to Brussels. This place was well worth it! For starters, the service was excellent! The guy knew his stuff and he was very passionate with everything. He recommended this hoppy beligum blonde beer that iíve never heard of and it was just delightful! Cant recall all the beers i tried there but this is defiantly a world-class beer bar. The food was nothing special but who cares? Its a great beer bar!
Visited Brugge for a weekend in March. This pub was so good we spent the majority of both nights in here. The range of beers is fantastic and the staff seemed to know everything about every beer they had which was impressive. By far the best bar we visited on our visit, and in fact one of the best bars Iíve been in period.
I spent 2 nights in Brugge this past April and loved ít Brugs Beertje so much that I made sure to visit a few times over the course of those days.
The space has a small front bar with some standing room behind it, a small room behind it with about 5 tables and a fireplace, then a door that leads to a hallway with bathrooms and a back bar that Iím sure 75% of all tourists who visit this place never even realize exists. Kind of like Monks Cafe in Philly in that sense. The walls are adorned with Beer Memorabilia and wood accents. Cozy is an understatement!
I donít think they had a bad beer on the menu. Everything was served in its proper glass.
What a great group of people running this place! Daisy served us the first night at a table in the "middle room" with the fireplace. She was quite professional and personable at the same time! She served our selections with pride and with precision. She was constantly moving but always made time to exchange a few words about her establishment and the products they offer. She also took the time to recommend some other bars in Bruges. She mentioned Cambrinus and ít Poatersgat and wrote down the street names that both were on for us. The second night we were served by several young guys at the front bar and the back bar. All were very nice and accomodating. I asked if they had anything off the menu and the bartender was delighted that I knew to ask that and took great pleasure in telling me about some reserve bottles he could make available to me.
Again a great selection of brew is at your fingertips while spending time in this establishment. Some of the things I tried include De Rank Saison De Dottignies, Smisje Wostyntje, 3F 05í Vintage Oude Gueuze, Jandrain IV Saison, 07í Pannepot Export, Vin du Cereale, etc.
Mainly finger foods...cheese platters, sausages, etc. Daisy was kind enough to give me some of the same mustard with my platter that they used to make the Smisje Wostyntje and she served them to me together so that was a nice experience.
Value: This place is not expensive at all.
The place where many years ago I discovered my love for Belgian beer, this place is a true beer Mecca. Very warm staff and some hard-to-believe bargains on some incredible beers, it is nearly impossible to walk out unassisted!
