Off the Main Street is the beer wall. Place is touristy and quite busy on an early Friday early after noon. The bartender could not keep up with demand. Selection is pretty good, but not as good as other places in town. Not sure why this place is listed as a bottle shop. This is a small bar with seating out by the canal.

A touristic place for sure. However, a huge beer selection and some rare finds in the basement. The prices vary from acceptable to overpriced. Crowd of people is a bit annoying.
Prijs en service zijn eigenlijk nul!! Afhalen aan de bar en volle pot doorreken! De bierwall is indrukwekkend maar de dienster was zo onaanspreekbaar dat mij tot nu niet duidelijk is of deze bieren hier ook te drinken zijn. Op mijn vraag of ik de bierkaart even kon zien wees ze op een papiertje met MAX 20 bieren, dus ik veronderstel dat dit alles is. Het terras is wel overdreven knap, anders had ik geen 62/100 gegeven
A large beer wall, beer shop and bar that attracts many tourists and locals. The outside bar is on the canal and offers an ambiance of centuries past. Good beer selection and decent service despite the crowds.

Perfect terrace on the canal. Very clean, attractive store. Selection is not bad, I found Rye quad of Struise. Yes it's touristy, but I like this famous wall.
Trying hard to sell their "beer wall". OK, albeit pretty standard selection of beers in the shop, but very touristic. Managed to pick up 2-3 ticks for the evening, but slightly disappointing.
Original review 2008-09-16 (70/100): Very central, and (as mentioned by others) Modern. You get more of a beer-display feeling in the basement than a beer-shop feeling. But they have a good selection, though it seemed a bit more expensive than other shops. Didn’t buy anything from them in the end.
Stumbled on this place after numerous friends mentioned a ’beer wall’ in Bruges, and despite visiting the city many times, I never understood what they meant until now. You enter the bar off a main street with a long glass cabinet full of beer bottles and glasses lining the walkway towards the bar, which also has bottles along every wall. Good for getting the tourists in I guess, but the bar itself is also quite pleasant, with a great outside seating area along the canal. We managed to grab a spot with extra comfy seats and heating. You can expect around 10 beers on draft, all reasonably priced for the location, and you can choose a board of 5 tasters. There are quite a lot of sharing bottles in the fridges, alongside the usual suspects and one or two newer releases. I chose a small-batch Prearis milk stout brewed especially for the bar. In England this kind of place in this location would be full of people drinking prosecco, kopparberg cider and awful cask bitter. Here, the selection just doesn’t compare. Will definitely call back.
