Well organised and informative. Tour guide involved everyone and didn't rush through any part of the tour. Impressed to hear about the beer pipeline an amazing and vital feat of engineering. Being able to. Try some unfiltered beer after the tour was the perfect ending to a great visit.

The entrance to the brewery/bar is a bit tricky to find using google maps, but we noticed that a lot in Bruge. We bought tickets for the tour a few mins before it started, but that may not work in busier times. The tour is fascinating - we had a great guide who gave us all a real feel for... More

I've been on a lot of brewery tours, this one was amazing. Their history and the technologies they have used and developed is really something. One word of caution, this tour includes a few INCREDIBLY STEEP stairwells, some of which required walking backwards down. If you have a fear of heights or have mobility issues, discuss this with them beforehand.... More

If you love Belgium beer then go here, Bruge Zot straight out of the tap, food is good, I would recommend the Flemish stew, so good we ate there twice in a three day stay. Note of caution, if you don't drink beer, you will be stung for wine, a bottle was 24 euro, so on our exchange rate was... More

I didn't take the brewery tour but my walking tour guide recommended this as a good place for lunch and to of course sample the local brew. Service was a little slow but the beer and food were great. I sat inside the restaurant but there is a large terrace too. Access to the restaurant is free but there is... More

A great informative tour, although watch out for steel stairs and could have done with more information about this particular brewery and it's history rather than generic explanations of the beer brewing process

I wish I could remember the name of our English speaking guide to say thank you but he was really great as a guide. The brewery is really interesting and the history of the place is evident throughout. Being able to go through some of the old rooms was fascinating. The beer this places produces is utterly awesome too so... More

Longer tour and get a tasty pale beer at end. Recommend going when they aren't brewing, might notice this stinking parts of town on days they are!

stopped here with friends to try the brew and get a bite to eat. Fun place to visit. And to get some beer to bring home with you. Make it part of your visit to Brugge. You won't be disappointed.
