  • The tour de Halve Maan brewery was very interesting and educational. Please note, it is not recommended for people with walking difficulties or really huge fear of heights. Our guide, Chris, really did a lot to tell. Not only a corny boring chat, but a fun interaction with the group. In my group were a number of questions and each question came an extensive answer. Knowledge of matters so and that makes a tour of just more fun. There are some very nasty steps and some you should obligatory go backward. Despite that I have reasonable fear of heights, I have absolutely no regret that I've done this tour. The price of 10 euro was including a free Brugse Zot of the barrel.

  • If you are in Bruges and you like beer this is a MUST to do stop. Great Belgian style beers. Don’t forget to take an hour tour. Very informative, funny, and great story from the beginning to today beer pipeline under the city. Try few different beers. They are really delicious, and don’t forget to buy aged one. Drink that slowly at home with friend. Outstanding taste...!!! Reach, full bodied, strong and a little sweet.
  • Super intimate beer tour, not at all commericalized like many breweries today. Take the XL tour, you get more beer and a better experience. Our tour guide Johan made our experience memorable. I'll remember this experience for a long time.
  • Best brewery tour I've been on. Detailed. Funny. A nice mixture of modern and old school processes. Really great place. Didn't love the beer but that's a personal taste thing. I can see why people do. Place was great. Really good for a visit to Bruges.
  • One of our highlights in Bruges! We went on the normal brewery tour (€10) which includes a glass of beer at the end. Tours seem to run every hour in English, Dutch and French. Our guide was great and the tour was very interesting. It also included nice city views at the top of the brewery about half way through. Would thoroughly recommend!
  • One of the best brewery tours I've ever been on and Peter was a fantastic guide. It was neat to see an old brew tower and a drying kiln.
