  • Nice to this historic city brewery with a nice story from the inside. Our guide told everything with great enthusiasm and humor to a reasonable large group. Don't expect a detailed explanation because that's not possible in a tour of 45 minutes. You are going to the roof of the brewery that meant much climbing stairs during the tour. But at the end you are allowed in the restaurant or terrace enjoy a Brugse Zot. You can also eat well here. Definitely a must if you are in Bruges.

  • We have a nice tour of the brewery from a guide that knows a lot of the ins and outs of the brewery. Very pleasant to drink after the tour a Brugse zot and especially when the weather is good, to do this on the terrace.

  • one of the best brewery tours I had. It's a very interesting place to visit due to the location and the techniques they use. the guides know a lot about the brew process so you can ask anything. you also get a very nice view of Bruges and a tasty fresh, unfiltered beer. definitely include this in your tour
  • Really interesting tour. Very funny guide. Free beer at the end! The view from the top of the chimney was great! Highly recommend
  • Great place to grab a beer. They have an awesome outside area to hang out and drink. When you first come in, check out the information signs and read about the beer pipeline. This place is definitely a must stop in Brugge.
