    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.

    Food and beer are amazing, nice staff and beautiful architecture. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Bruges. We had the set menu which for 20 euros for a massive moules frites and a cheeseboard is ...  more »

    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.
