Found the selection here to be slightly better than 2be and Bier Tempel - spent considerably more cash here. Staff is knowledgeable and beyond friendly. Hell, all three are within 5 minutes of each other so why wouldn’t you go to all three.

The opposite of the Bier Tempel on the other end of the square...here we have very friendly and helpful staff, a refreshing break from the standard. Large selection, but nothing really unusual. I rarely buy much here, but at least when I do I get a smile from behind the counter. Is that really too much to ask elsewhere?

Very central, will deliver orders to hotel for you, plenty of selection boxes, some with proper glasses. Belle Vue Kriek in the fridge for warm days! It is pricy but convenient. Great service but that was out of season, hate to think what it's like when full of tourists. Good level access for wheelchairs, too.

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 didn’t have anything super rare but they are also selling more obscure and interesting selections. The prices seemed reasonable. Certainly worth a stop.

Nice selection of Belgian beers. They have some large format bottles in here (Rochefort Christmas 8 in 1.5L format, Chimay in 3L, etc.) in addition to hundreds of regulars at competitive prices for Bruges. Bruges is an expensive tourist city, but of all the bottle shops in Bruges, this one is the least expensive....

Large open plan beer shop that belies it’s initial souvenier shop appearance, picked up a few "special" beers from here. Centrally located just round the corner from the Belfry.

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

Not the cheapest, as just off the Markt & rather touristy, but a great selection.

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 ’Generaal’ and ’Tripel’ as well as three ’St Idesbald’ beers from the Huyghe brewery here.
