We did the xl tour to get the 3 drinks. The tour talks about the building more than the brewing process. Our tour guide was Marc and he injected a lot of humour into the tour

Comfort shoes and small bags for the tour: you will walk up and down the whole facility, there are some narrow paths to go though. The tour guide explain the whole process from the very beginning. It's a family business, so you learn the history behind it from start to nowadays. At the end of the tour a beer sampling... More

We went on this tour because we are used to doing Champagne tours in France. It was interesting, informative and well worth the time. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. There are quite a few steps and two staircases that had to be negotiated backwards, but your reward at the end is a glass of unfiltered blonde beer that is... More

The brewery is right in the heart of Brugge with a lovely little courtyard for enjoying a beer in the sun. We were worried what with its popularity we wouldn't be able to get a tour but arrived and were told one was going in 10 minutes which was good. Our tour guide was great, very informative, lots of facts,... More

For beer lovers like me this could be (and was) the best part of Bruges. Having a fantastic tour guide (take the XL tour. It just the regular tour - worth it so much more!) This is now my favourite beer. Like of all time. 10/10.

Lunch reservation at 1:00 PM, XL tour at 2:15 PM. Peter, excellent guide. Took great care of two cane toting seniors. The steep stairs were a challenge, made it about 2/3 through and Peter suggested we wait for the group to come back down and then we finished the tour with them. The beer tasting was great. Overall, de Halve... More

I have been to quite few brewery tours and this is certainly not the best one. It seems to have lost some authenticity as it felt we were in a conveyor belt tour. With the tour ticket you get a glass of Brugse Zot, I must say I could compare it to a normal lager nothing special at all compared... More

Great beer. A place with a story. Must try Brugse Zot. As every beer drinking place is, everybody talks to you with a smile on their face. :)

Very enjoyable tour around a modern working brewery, with all the old equipment to view on the tour. Marleen our guide was very knowledgable with a very good sense of humour. A good beer to end the tour.
