City Centre beer shop, and while it clearly caters to tourists it wasn’t as ’touristy’ as I expected. There are lots of new releases for example, with a selection at the back focussed on 7 or 8 more specialisted independents such as De Dolle and Struise. Prices for the more limited release beers are incredibly steep (8.95 for one Struise 8% 330ml), but for more well-known Belgian beers they seem fair at around 2.50-3 euros, esp for a shop in this location. If you’re in Bruges for a flying visit, you could do much worse than this place.

Tourist trap in the center with very high stacked shelves, optimised for lots of people going through at the same time, so not very comfortable to stay a while and look through the selection (which is what you expect).

Visited on 10th December 2016. Stopped by on our way past, it was packed full of tourists but had time and space to have a wander around. It’s a nice looking shop, very slick, with a solid range of Belgian beers, nothing too spectacular, as stated in other reviews it’s more for the tourist than the hardcore rather. Decent enough venue though.

Touristy bottle shop just off the main square in central Bruges. Quite pricey, bright and clean. Concentrates mostly on selling reasonably standard Belgian beers to us visitors although I did pick up some slightly out of the ordinary. It’s worth a look and a search round.

Big clean slick looking shop on one of the main roads around the Plaza. Very wide selection of Belgian beers, but mostly regular stuff at high prices. Peaked in briefly and no purchase for me, think this will do well with tourists, more than beer geeks.

Best bottle shop I visited during my trip. Some rarities also such as Fantome and lambics. Prices are a bit higher for the regular stuff, but here you’ll find very good selection of belgian beers. There is some spirits and wines too.

Rather large beer store close to the market square with a broad selection of the classic Belgian brews. Clean, neatly organized, looks very professional, and the selection is not bad at all. Prices are accordingly, so quite expensive. Worth checking out if close by.

Huge selection, and staff helpful when they have time. Touristy, but most prices pretty fair. About 20-30% less than Brussels. Whole section devoted to sours, and all the world’s Trappist breweries (Italian and American included).

Big touristy shop. Decent selection of good Belgian beers, but extremely expensive. No specials available as well. Not worth it.
