Gorgeous bar in Bruges. A must-visit spot for me solely for the ambiance. I've been twice and the service both times was a bit spotty. We asked for a 37.5 cL of Tilquin Mure and the bartender opened a Tilquin Gueuze instead. Then she was rude when we asked for a refund. Overall, still worth a visit.
Le Trappiste is clearly run by serious beer enthusiasts. The location in a cellar is awesome, but as I toured around Brugge I found it wasn't necessarily unique. Their reputation clearly precedes themselves, they were packed even on a Tuesday evening. This many bodies in this very well insulated space makes for a quite warm experience. I can't imagine being down here in the summer. The beer list is among the very best I saw on my visit to either Brugge or Brussels. They've got all kinds of rarer Belgian stuff from the classics down to some of the newer micros. A good selection of imports was available too to give the locals something different. The draft list is quite extensive for Brugge and the bottle list is just insane. Prices were maybe slightly higher than a lot of other bars around, but most bars around just don't have these beers to compare. Either way, comparing it to the States, these are dirt cheap prices for a beer.
Medieval look basement beer pub, central in Brugge. Really good selection of Belgian and craft beers. Good and polite service. Croudy and a bit touristic (disco music isn’t pair much with beer drinking imo). A good place overall to have some beers...
Easily the best place I visited in Bruges. Really like the setting and the candles etc. Cool vibe, and quite relaxed. The staff were more friendly than the other bars we visited, and there are countless taps – flights of 5 available which makes it ticker friendly. I wonder how many new beers would show up here though as I only just managed to find 5 new beers for me out of a list of 20. Still, that’s just being greedy as this is clearly a good place for beer geeks and non-beer-geeks alike. The bottle list is also good but prices are a touch high. This place got me drunk enough to forget where the station was – thank God for smartphones. (78)
