A quaint little bar tucked away down an alley near the center of Brugge. Not the deepest selection beers, but nothing to laugh at either. Prices are right and their house beer (which they push on the tourists that come in without much beer-knowledge) is decent. Mostly, this is a nice place to spend a few hours if you find yourself in town while t’Brugs Beertje is closed.
Visited on (12-07-10) Definitely hard to find if you don’t know where to look or what you are looking for. The bar is down a tiny old alley that can be mistaken for a walkway. Great character and charm. Very small and cozy. Lots of stone and exposed wood beams. All beers on tap are served with a small portion of cheese and all beers come on wooden serving tray with white doliy. Full of older couples/locals who all knew each other. Great selection of beer all priced very well (4,50 euro or cheaper). Had a great selection of Christmas beers. Definitely must try the house triple "Triple Van de Garre" which was smooth and very drinkable. Superb beer. This is a must stop for any beer lover visiting Brugge (gorgeous city). Out of the many places/brew pubs and bars visited in Belgium this is still one of my favorites.
Yes, it really is hard to find. But worth the effort. Classical music, great selection, the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon in Brugge.

I ve been there because a local man guide me to this place. I don’t know if i could find it by myself. Only by accident.
So ... very warm and cosy place, 2 floors. Staff is pleasant and they recomend for the beggining to taste their own tripel "Le Garre" served in a special snifter glass (like the new of Lucifer). Nice tripel with smooth palate. The list has many other beers in nice prices. Unfortunately it is closed at 12.00 midnight. Very nice at all.
We passed the place twice before we finally found the hidden alleyway.
Cozy, small and packed! Loved the place. The house tripple is very good, you’re advised to drink no more than 3 glasses. Nice selection of Beers. Ate an old fashioned sandwich wich was just delicious.
We discovered this place while in Brugge for three days, and made return visits on two more occasions... we loved everything about it! Very knowledgeable staff, great ambiance, nice presentation of the beers on a platter with a white doily and a small bowl of cheese. The prices were very reasonable from what I am accustomed to in Canada. Too bad they don’t have a few more things to munch on...
