After visiting the De Halve Maan Brewery we reach this place that looks more for a gift-souvenir shop. Nice collection of beers but the best point of this place is that you could find beer accessoires for decoration and the most important: you could find great variety of rare beer glasses in very good price. Staff is friendly and helpfull. I visited this place last year and i visited again a week before when i ve been again in Brugge.
Found this by accident. Seems as most people do. Just a regular gift shop that seems to have a very decent selection of beer. Decently priced for the area. Hope to accidentally run into it again sometime.
It is not totally bier, as there are lots of beer related items. However, I found 8 beers I’d never rated without going more than a quarter of the way down the beer shelves. Someone is trying to provide variety. Even some uncomman French beers.
I found it accidentally as i was walking down the streets of that astonishing place, Brugge. It is most likely a gift shop than a beer shop. It is like a custom mini market with its wooden awful shelves and it is full with souvenirs. Among them you can find a special corner with beers and breweriana. I found many x-mas bottles and some special x-mas glassware too. A variety of glassware and some of them are kind of old. I found a 20+ year-old Westvletteren glass in a very good price. I think it also has beer-coasters for sale. The service is very kind and helpful.If i visit Brugge again, i will definitely go there so as to search for more and collective glassware.
Also accidentally walked past it (in January), and it is basically a gift/souvenir shop with an alright beer selection. Standard Belgian selection, except the three crates of Westvleteren on the floor! Bought W12 for €6 and W6 for €5 (no W8) as a gift for a friend, so he ain’t complaining.
Seems like this is more of a tourist gift and trinket shop than a beer store, but they do actually have a wide selection of Belgians, including many lambic and trappist bottles. I scored a gem (!!) of Chapeau Christmas Gueuze (lowest rated gueuze I haven’t had yet, yay!). Lots of glassware but more was typical, and nearly no gueuze glasses, which is what we were searching for. Worth a visit if you’re just walking around south of city center, but certainly not the best store in town.
I visited this place without R, just walked by it and walked in, had no idea this was even on the site (unnecessary now). This is basically a straight up tourist store that happens to have a little more beer than the other ones. There was nothing interesting here selection wise except American Budweiser, which there has to be called Bud. The good thing is they have a lot of glasses pairing with each beer. I saw 2 Rodenbach glasses for 3 Euro, even though I just paid more at Bier Temple. I was not even tempted to buy any beer. I did a good glass for .25 cents, sitting in the bargain bin outside the store. Skip it unless you are looking for a glass.

Visited in March 2007. The selection was smaller than on my previous visit the year before. As stated before, more of a gift shop but had some unusual Flanders beers.
I stopped in here to grab a couple bottles to take home. They had the Liefmans Kriek and La Trappe Dubbel that I grabbed at a reasonable price. The ladies working there were very nice. They even volunteered that shipping was way too expensive. This is a good retailer in a great town.
