Cozy little bar tucked away in an old alley; a pretty cool location. Decor is standard for a Belgian beer cafe; a lot of Belgian beer signs and old looking stuff. Service has friendly and knowledgeable. Prices were very good for Bruges. Food was good as well, we had a Belgian cheese platter. Overall an excellent place, the only improvement that could be made would be to have more taps, because they only have five or six.

Visited a couple of times - not often enough! Brown, dark, old, almost 19th century Bruges style pub. Old benches, rusty chairs. There is a 'main' beer list which consists of the more 'classic' Belgian breweries and their usual suspects, but a rotating bottle list with special stuff can be found in the back. Apparently this has changed owners; new bartenders are young and knowledgeable. I remember this place was notorious for its 'early' closing times (midnight, 1AM...), not sure if those opening hours are still correct. Prices are fair, specials not cheap; check out the tap list too, they once even had a beer still in production (collab between Siphon & Hedonis). All in all, the essential beer pub for a night out in Bruges.

For a tourist the beer list is overwhelming. There are places in Ohio where I lament that they have the same 300 beers. With fresh eyes this place is amazing. So many Belgian (and only Belgian) beers, from the recognizable to the really local. Pleasantly aloof bartenders who were helpful with suggestions. The local fetish with branded glassware is fascinating. Every beer is presented with a flourish in its specific glass. Small bar area with a sitting room attached. Great beer place for an American tourist to drink Belgian beer. They have some food but only got the cheese snack for self preservation.

Une bistro/estaminet hors du temps, typiquement belge où l'on trouve une incroyable sélection de bières belges allant du lambic aux quadruples en passant par des perles rares de vieilles bouteilles conservées en cave. Les prix sont ultra démocratiques et le service super sympa. Incontournable à Bruges pour les amateurs de bières.

Called here just after opening time, midweek September. Got a seat easy, but 15 minutes later and the place was packed. Good range on tap, and the bottle list has plenty to offer. A Tilquin beer on draft was particularly delicious. Plenty to look at in here, too. Loads of breweriana. Friendly and quick service. Nice atmosphere. A train to catch meant we didn’t stay too long, but I’ll certainly call in again next time.

Auténtico y famoso pub de Brujas; suele estar bastante petado de turistas, pero es lo que tiene estar una ciudad como Brujas y ser un pub tan legendario. Sin embargo, el ambiente es bueno, tranquilo, con gente educada y con ganas de hablar sobre la ciudad y la cerveza. Parada obligatoria en Brujas y, aunque esté hasta la bandera, que no os importe compartir mesa con otra gente… es una práctica habitual fuera de España. En cuanto a las cervezas, son 6 tiradores que van variando de surtido dentro de los diferentes estilos belgas, y en carta hay más de 250 botellas. La última vez que estuvimos nos pegamos una liada muy seria: Débora fue probando cervezas de miel, alguna blonde, alguna triple y cositas más variadas, ¡pero yo me dediqué a beber cuádruples desde el principio y al lío! Cuando una birreada empieza con una Straffe Hendrik Quadruple y luego le sigue una Trappistes Rochefort 10 sabes que no va a ser un birreo cualquiera. Acabamos haciendo amistad con unos ingleses, John y Abby, y nos fuimos luego de fiesta con ellos. A día de hoy seguimos teniendo contacto con ellos; de hecho, la última vez que visitamos Londres quedamos con John y aún nos partimos recordando la birreada que nos pegamos en Brujas, ¡jejejeje!

Great bar, very old looking with tonnes of beer mats and old bottles on the walls/shelves. Great selection of beers with a menu several pages long and plenty of well-priced beers. Had a about 6 or 8 beers on-tap too I think. It opens later most days and got busy quite quickly but there was some free seats in the back room most of the time. Definitely somewhere I'll visit again if I'm back in Bruges.

Now in the hands of a young owner, in the wake of Daisy’s departure, and doing a great job.

Consistantly excellent pub in every respect. Deservedly popular. Brugge’s essential visit.One of a small number of cafes (Kulminator, Wildeman etc) that should be give World Heritage status. Update 8/4/18: first visit after Daisy's departure and happy to report that nothing has changed.
