  • Great visit, we found out how beer is made. Mary our guide was very friendly and his Belgian humor was on top! Loved the visit that allows to understand how beer is made. The brief history of the House is onne life to this old House which has been able to renew. We like the green of society approach. The ticket gives right to a beer at the end of visit it's nice to finish on a moment of relaxation in the restaurant which is very beautiful.

  • The tour is of an optimum length, especially on the very hot day that I went. The tour guide was informative and humorous and spoke perfect English. Be aware, the tour does include some very steep stairs and some very small doorways. However, you are suitably warned about this. The bar at the end of the tour where you can redeem your ticket for the unfiltered blonde beer tapped from the brewery itself is far more comfortable than the outside seating area, particularly on a hot day. Service was great.
  • For €10 you get a 45 minute tour, plus a free draft beer (€4 value). The tour was really informative and interesting; we took the English one, but they also offer French and Dutch tours hourly. You can also get food and drinks at the brasserie or pick up some beer to-go in the shop. Highly recommended!
  • i'm enthusiastic about this brewery. I've joined to the guided tour and i could appreciate how this place and the brewery in general have been important for trade and society. Nice place also to drink and taste a beer
  • Beautiful historic setting in the heart of Bruges. We had the 45 min tour in English with a humourous guide. Maybe a few too many tours happening at once. But the beers are wonderful, the venue stunning and definitely worth the visit.
  • Great tour in English. Lasted over an hour as the group was slightly big. Beer at the end is always good.
