Downton Bruges. Pretty crowded on the Sunday afternoon we went. Service was non existent. Selection is ok, but nothing to throw it out of your chair. Mostly Belgium classics so if you have already had a couple of Belgian beers, thereís nothing new for you here. Price are way too high... I can get everything that is available here for cheaper in Quťbec. Pretty bad place. I left empty handed even if they had Chapeau Abricot, which I was looking for to complete a swill tasting (Chapeau line-up... sorry JulienHuxley!

Decent place in downtown Brugge (almost everything in Brugge is in downtown Brugge). Enjoyed browsing here as they have a good selection. Didnít buy much because the prices in this city are crazy. The service was kind. Nice shop to stop by.

Bottle shop with a huge range and lots of glassware to choose from too. I didnít think the prices were too bad at all. If you want the regular stuff you can get it cheeper in the supermarket, but this was one of the cheeper specialist shops that I came accross.

A beer shop in the center. Offers a huge range of Belgium beers with proper glass ware. Also offers some distilled drinks and other beer gimmicks. Service was not really existing. Some of the prices were a bit of a rip off. Overall a bottle shop worth a look but not a must.

Good selection of beer in a nice locale. Didnít buy anything here, just looked around. They have some nice Belgian bottles and the prices arenít that hiked up.

They sold me a beer with the expiration date as 2009!!!! And after I complained, the owner tried to explain that the beer is like a wine and it is better without the expiration date, lame lame excuse!!! Do not trust their beers! Make sure that the expiration dates are ok first!!!!

I shopped in several local beer stores on my trip and the attitude here is is the worst!! The only bad encounter I had in Bruges at all was in this shop! Other than that the people are delightful and they have a great city.
This store was the second place I visited, and being that I intended to buy several beers and make a large purchase I asked for some advice. The woman rude to begin with, which I was going to let pass (I just came from Paris). But definitely I thought it was strange that she scolded another tourist near me for snapping a photo. We all do that these days! Anyhow when I asked about the Westvleteren 12 she had displayed (with a very reasonable price) she refused to sell it to me and said it was for "display only". I picked it up and showed her there was a price on all of the bottles and she literally snatched it from my hand and put it back (and muttered what sounded like something dirty about Americans under her breath). Needless to say I was totally dumbfounded by this put down the basket I had collected and left. If she doesnít want the business of Americans, I say donít give it to her! The Bier Temple down the block was very friendly and sold me the exact same beer, no fuss. What that womanís deal is I will never know, but there are too many good beer stores in the area with great selections for me to recommend a fellow American shop here where we are obviously not wanted. and itís too bad, looked like a cool store, and easily could have been. But if your American do me and yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

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!
