De Dulle Griet is a time-worn old-school pub, with a wonderful old Flemish interior. The selection of beers is impressive too, with more than 400 different special beers, both local & international. De Dulle Griet has the biggest choice in terms of beers in Ghent!

We sought this place out as we were told by another bar that they served LOADS of different beers, including our favourite Kasteel Donker. Sure enough they did. The bar is ALWAYS busy, so getting a table/seat is premium. There is waiter service and they...More

The only thing why was I coming here regularly was beer "Max van 't Huis", which means "maximum from the house". It is the glass of 1.2 liters with round bottom (so it needs the stand too). Order it and you will be surprised what...More

When we entered, the bartender told us to take a hike. Me and my black friends were shocked. When we asked why we had to leave, he told us he only wanted young white girls in his bar.

We went to enjoy a Max beer which is a large bulbous glass held in a wooden stand. It's great beer and great fun trying to ensure you don't spill any as you down the 1.2l litres. Your shoe or boot is hauled up into...More

Boasting over 500 beers, Dulle Griet is a landmark in Ghent. It is a great place to sit outside and go through the massive categorised beer menu and try some special brews. Don't be afraid to be a little adventurous in your choice.

This is a popular bar in a busy square. We were looking forward to trying some of the their many beers. Unfortunately, after being ignored for 20+ minutes, we decided to spend our money elsewhere.

Read a lot about this place prior to arriving. It had only been open 15 minutes and the patio was almost full. Went inside, which was probably at least at half capacity. Very unique decor; you could spend hours looking at the countless items on...More
