  • A worthwhile trip for an hour. Loads of stairs to go up and down. But do get a good view from roof of Bruge. Only 9 euros. And you get a free beer at the end. Lovely jubbly. If you want a beer glass s...  more »

  • Informative tour with loads to see. The guide (Rowland) was great, told us what we needed to know and made everyone laugh. The tour takes you right to the top of the brewery which makes for a great view of the city. If you do struggle with stairs though I would give this one a miss. Free beer at the end too. 🙌
  • The beer tour was very thorough and the guide was passionate about beer making and the brewery. Beer was great, did not eat anything but service was immediate (went directly to the bar to order). Recommended tour just to see how they operate in the earlier years with limited space.
  • Went on the XL tour. Was great. Very informative and entertaining. Great to taste the beer afterwards. Staff were all very friendly. Well worth a visit, although it's a bit easy to miss the entrance of the brewery!
  • Decent beer, I can't speak for the food as I skipped out but a few things to note. If you want to do a tour book early or show up early knowing you'll have to come back later to do the tour as they fill up quick for the day. Now maybe the staff was having a long day as it was quite busy the day we visited but everyone looked super worn out. The service was pretty bad sat for nearly 20 min and was never asked if we needed anything, even after the table next to us was served and I specifically made eye contact with the server a couple of times. Ended up going up and getting us a couple of beers at the bar. Which is fine as long as you expect to do so.
  • We attended the extended tour around the brewery. Super knowledgable and friendly guide even though we arrived a couple of minutes too late. The beers are phenomenal as well!
