I wouldnít normally buy beer (or much else) in Brugge, itís far too touristy for my taste. But if you have to buy beer here, this would be the place (of course, I havenít been to the Struise shop yet!). Prices are better than most other places, and selection includes a few things not found elsewhere.

Fantastic beer shop in the heart of Brugge. Wide open, deep beer selection, a number of fantastic lambic and gueuze bottles, nearly the full trappist line, and some more local bottles from some Flanders brewers. A lot of glassware, a ton of gueuze glasses especially... and nice enough woman staffing the desk. Classy store, should be on your itinerary along with Bier Tempel and Bacchus Cornelius.

A block or two down from the Central Square on one of the main shopping strips, Bottle Shop has a solid selection of belgian ales, certainly a few hundred long in a well-displayed store that is well worth visiting. Its central location makes it sell a little of everything that may be of interest to tourists, but the polite service and logical disposition made it one of the better places to shop if you really must do your beer shopping in Bruges.

Walked by this place without even knowing it was there. Good selection of glassware and a reasonably nice selection of beer. Large space, well laid out. I didnít buy too much stuff in here, but if Iíd had a car, I probably would have picked up more.

Have visited a few times on trips to Brugge.
Selection is decent enough but nothing particularly rare.
They occasionally have something interesting but beware the silly prices that sometimes appear on such products. Pricing on the standard Belgian stuff is fine but Iíve seen one or two sillies in the last year presumably trying to catch out tourists.
Central location so worth droppping buy.
Clientele is pretty solid tourists buying Kwak packs with glasses and fruit beers, expect to queue for a bit!

Cute gift/beer shop selling cute packages in the cute Brugge tourist area. It is very good at theme packages (i.e.: pre-packaged gift box with all beers from a brewery + official glass). Itís probably the best store Iíve seen in Belgium as far as these cute gift-boxes are concerned. However this is not a place for the beer geek. No obscure/rare beers and very few micros. Mainly mainstream beers (trappists, etc.). Nice display and pleasant to shop at. Staff knows enough to serve their not-so-demanding customers.

Works for me. Agree 2be and Bier Temple might have more selections, but you canít afford to not step in here. We are all looking for something. I was not disappointed.

Relatively large shop with a central location next to Markt and in the same street as Brasseries Erasmus and 2 be. Very good selection of Belgian beers and beer-related gifts. The arrangements of the bottles make it easy to find what you are looking for. In addition the lady on work was very service minded. And you canít complain about the prices. I bought bottles from Alvinne, Smisje, Troubadour, among other. This is one of the best among the many beer shops in Brugge (visited, 03rd May 2011).

Typical Belgian bottle shop with organized yet crowded shelves. The beer seems to be organized by styles which can be very helpful. The help was friendly and they carefully wrap up and bag all you beer for you. I walked out of there with 7 or 8 bottles. They didnít have anything super rare but they are also selling more obscure and interesting selections. The prices seemed reasonable. Certainly worth a stop.

Itís a nice shop to look around, very near Erasmus and the newer, larger 2be. If youíre going from shop to shop and picking up one or two bottles here and there, this one wonít disappoint. Thereís also a selection of chocolates, genever, and other souvenir goodies. The selection doesnít appear as wide as 2be or Bier Tempel, but they did have Pannepot on my last couple of visits. Also some good lambics (but nothing really rare). But if youíve only got time for one bottle shop, Iíd go for one of the others.
