This brewery tour is worth every penny! For €9 you get a one hour tour of the brewery and a special unfiltered glass of Brugse Zot beer which is only available at the brewery bar/restaurant. Tours run once every hour and languages switch between English/Dutch and French/Dutch each hour, so it may be worth doing your research beforehand. Our tour... More

A big brewery with a good brewery tap located between the train station and the historic centre. The straffe Hendrik quadruple is a highlight

We popped in for the brewery tour on a quiet weekday and it was a lovely experience. The only thing that came close to a negative was the first member of bar staff we spoke to when we asked about the tour. He seemed a little annoyed and wasn't the most pleasant person....giving the impression that he'd rather we hadn't... More

Good drink stop. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do the tour of the brewery but heard others say was good and is €9 which includes a glass of beer so definitely worth it

I've been dragged round many brewery tours thanks to my partner's love of ale, and this one scores highly. We may have been lucky to get a fabulous tour guide (female, multi lingual, very humorous) who brought the tour to life. The tour includes the current brewing set up (sadly not working while we were there due to works taking... More

A very entertaining tour round the old brewery in Bruges, you will be amused at the tales you hear, and the tasting at the end of the tour will be a treat for your tastebuds.

The process of brewing beer isn't necessarily a secret but it was great to see how this brewery makes beer now and how it did in the past. Our guide, Marleen, was the best guide we have ever had on any tour; not only was she knowledgeable and personable, she delivered the tour with a dry wit that made it... More

Very good tour, Vincent the tour guide (English) was great. The beer is very good as well. We were a bit disappointed that we weren't able to buy fries with our beer (you have to order at least one other item from the menu in order to order fries..).

Me and my friend took the tour through the brewery. Our guide, a very nice and knowledgeable women told us a lot about tradition and facts about Belgian beer and this old brewery. I very much enjoyed it. The only thing that could have been better was that the tour could be a little bit longer.

We did the XL tour for the second time and found it just as good and informative as first time round. Our guide (Peter) was informative, funny and switched seamlessly between English and Dutch. Would definitely recommend the XL tour.
