Fodor's Review

This working brewery—the only one in Bruges—not only has a rather pleasant courtyard but produces the Brugse Zot and Straffe Hendrik brands that you'll see in many bars around town. If you want to see the brewery in action, daily 45-minute tours (hourly 11–4, with an extra tour at 5 pm on Saturday) cost €9 and include a glass of the house blond beer in its unfiltered form. You'll also find out how a 3-km (2-mile) length of pipeline was laid under the city's medieval streets to allow for enough beer to fill 12,000 bottles an hour in a plant outside the city limits and still keep their brewing operation within Bruges. True beer lovers should aim for the extended daily 2 pm tour (€19; 90 minutes), which descends into the cellars for a more in-depth tasting session and hopped-up tales.
