Opens at 4pm. Inside itís a small cramped barroom up front with some tables in the back room. Beer list is certainly good, but I was sort of expecting something better... no, not the level of, say, Bier Circus or Delirium, but I had a hard time finding anything new or interesting on their menu. A lot of gueuze and kriek but you can find that stuff at the cafe down the street. I finally settled on a mid-aged bottle of Mort Subite Oude Kriek, which was a good choice as it has a fully developed sourness and it somewhat rescued what was becoming a disappointing visit. Recommended, for sure, but I do not think that ít Brugs should be considered on the same level as the other legendary beer cafes of Belgium.

Met Daisy. Had beers. Spoke with locals. Except for the excessive smoking, it hardly gets better anywhere.

nice place... good selection of Belgians, great glassware, good service, nice beer, just off the main drag through this odd little town.

Great atmosphere, small little place. Lots of wood, lots of character. Our receipt for the evening is hand written on a piece of paper. I love it. Decent selection is not sufficient to wow me after a few days in Belgium but its a pretty solid list that I probably would have gone nuts for earlier in the trip. We had cheese and pate plates which were darn near perfect for the moment, just enough food. Service was friendly and a good mix of available but not obtrusive.

I wasnít too crazy about this place. With such a great selection down the street at Hotel Erasmus, ít Brugs felt like a bit of a fallback destination. Good to see a bunch of Belgian taps, though, and the atmosphere was nice.

Cozy, smokey and a bit stinky, it was easy to get comfortable here. I noticed some of the bottles I ordered were unavailable to me but were brought up to our table when more famous people ordered them. I sort of liked that. Quality offerings on tap and excellet bottle selections as well.

Traci and I agreed on this one: our favorite spot in Brugge by a wide margin. Cozy, pleasantly noisy, a little smoke but not at all bothersome, classical music plays softly in the background. One of those rare wonderful places where you sit down and immediately feel like time stops, and you could sit there quite happily until you began to gather dust. Plenty of interesting things to drink on the menu, and the service was both friendly and personable, yet about as efficient as I have ever seen, with Daisy and just one other staff member speeding from table to cellar to bar, keeping the whole place supplied with beer. Pouring a bottle at our table, Daisy would say a few words over the beer as she finished the pour: Rich, lovely full, over Pannepot. Perfume of the wild berries, over Oudbeitje. Like a priest, blessing bread. A very beautiful place.

The best place I have ever consumed beers. We had two huge afternnon/evenings in a row and here and never drank the same beer twice. Staff where highly informative as were several patrons we befriended. Seem to recall eating some cheese and pickles at some point...

Loved this place. A bit smoky but Iím spoiled with the no smoking laws in many of the states. Very friendly, fun, cozy beer loverís environment. Daisy was very nice, as was the rest of the wait staff. Cheese plate was perfect match for excellent selecition of beers on tap and in the bottle.

On the day of my visit I was met by a wall of cigaret smoke when I entered. People seemed rather agitated and laughed a lot. Luckly there was still room for me at the bar. Bartender was quick, friendly and knew his beers and the majority of the people on my side of the bar also. I guess one was a Vlaamse Blok voter. Unpleasant. Selection of beer good and of course all the right glasses. Impressive. Did not eat there and did not see any food on the tables.
