Impressive selection, right in the heart of town, which is saying something considering the convenience stores have pretty nice selections themselves. The people were friendly, like everyone else I encountered in Bruges, except for a few chocolate shop employees.
Huge bottle shop next to the 'Belfort'. Big selection, some special Belgian stuff too (I remember Ardenne Stout, for example). But so expensive, really aimed at tourists. If you can't control yourself and you really need a bottle 'on the go', go ahead. I actually found myself in that situation (urgently needed a Hedonis Ouwen Duiker), called the shop to put it aside and they were very friendly to help me out. But all things considered, I would recommend Struise Shop on the Burg and Bierboom in the Langestraat.
After checking out 2Be, dropped by The Bottle Shop. Selection seems better, and not just the standard selection you find in most Bruges beer shops. Nothing immensely special, but a very decent selection of beers. Prices pretty standard.
City Centre beer shop, and while it clearly caters to tourists it wasn’t as ’touristy’ as I expected. There are lots of new releases for example, with a selection at the back focussed on 7 or 8 more specialisted independents such as De Dolle and Struise. Prices for the more limited release beers are incredibly steep (8.95 for one Struise 8% 330ml), but for more well-known Belgian beers they seem fair at around 2.50-3 euros, esp for a shop in this location. If you’re in Bruges for a flying visit, you could do much worse than this place.
Tourist trap in the center with very high stacked shelves, optimised for lots of people going through at the same time, so not very comfortable to stay a while and look through the selection (which is what you expect).
Visited on 10th December 2016. Stopped by on our way past, it was packed full of tourists but had time and space to have a wander around. It’s a nice looking shop, very slick, with a solid range of Belgian beers, nothing too spectacular, as stated in other reviews it’s more for the tourist than the hardcore rather. Decent enough venue though.
