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.

Facing the eastern side of the Belfry building, this is a very well kept and laid out bottle shop that extends back into the building it occupies. All the beers are neatly placed on shelves with their various drinking glasses next to them and all areas are designed to showcase the different styles available. Itís a tourist heavy place with the front bottle area getting the busiest with the casual browsers, so youíll end up with a little more room to peruse in the rear area beyond the central till. The selection is extensive and the mark up is not actually as much as you might expect for itís location just off the main square.

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.

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!

I didnít go in here on my most recent visit (5th & 6th December 2014) however I have popped in here a few times before out of beer curiosity when wandering down Wollenstraat. It is a long thin shop that opens up a little at the back and despite it being in the heart of tourist central it does an admiral job of having a very decent selection and the prices arenít too bad. I tend to be more of a browser whilst here as usually I have almost always stocked up at Dranken Geers, but I have occasionally picked up a beer that has bypassed me. A good selection of beery merchandise can also be found albeit some tat and service has always been pretty good despite the obvious frustration of having to deal with all manner of people who no doubt pose the most ridiculous question about what they were drinking last night in the vain hope that the staff might be able to point them towards a Leffe (no doubt) sorry I am being mischievous but it is just that I hear these sorts of questions getting thrown at poor staff all the while in some bottle shop it is if the staff are some sort of beery clairvoyant. Unless you wish to venture further afield then this is not a bad place to stop in the centre and whilst the selection wonít have to many surprises there will be a few from the likes of Struisse, Westvleteren etc

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.

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.

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.

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).

Impressive one roomed (big room though) beer selection. You are left alone to wander around, help is available if required; two females on duty when I visited, the young one spoke English, the elder not so well versed. Each bottle I bought was wrapped and placed in a bag for me, only beershop to do that in Brugges. Just as expensive as De Bier Tempel and 2be, with about the same number of beers to choose from. I got my Vicaris íGeneraalí and íTripelí as well as three íSt Idesbaldí beers from the Huyghe brewery here.
