Well organised but quite short tour of the rather small brewery. Not for the physically challenged or those with vertigo. Great views across the town from the roof terrace. Tour includes a glass of beer. Its worth staying to eat in the brewery restaurant and to sample a few more beers. It can get very busy at peak times. In... More

De Halve Maan Brewery is well worth a visit whilst in Bruges.It costs only 8 euro for a fascinating brewery tour which leads to the top of a tower, where you get a breath taking view of Bruges.At busier times you may have to book your tour in advance,there are different time slots throughout the day.At the end of the...

The tour starts every hour at the store in groups from 5 till 15 persons. The guide explains with good sense of humor the history of the brewery, the production process, the beer market, how the different types of beer are maiden. On the roof there is a nice view of the city. Be prepared to go up and down... More

We went on an English speaking tour of the Brewery. Our Guide Peter was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Brewery. You get shown all the processes and taken up onto the roof for great views over Bruge. You have to negotiate down ladders and tunnels to arrive back at the start for a complimentary beer, be warned they are... More

We came in because were looking for a shelter from the Flemish weather... We ended up staying 3hrs in a cosy table by the fire and tasted the four beers they brew here. I recommend it. Highly!

We went on the tour for 8 euros. The group was really big for English speakers - over 20 people - which made it hard to always hear what the guide was saying. The tour is informative & you get great views of the city from the top of the building. Be careful on the staircases as a few are... More

The brewery should be on your agenda during a visit to Bruges. The tour costs €9 but includes a beer at the end. Tour guides take groups with different languages and the tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. Mind the steep stairs which access the various parts of the brewery and the low headroom in places! Excellent bar and brasserie at... More

It was a very informative tour with a very knowledgeable guide. I learnt a lot during the tour and found out their underground beer (I know it's crazy). We went up to the rooftop at the end of the tour and the view was brilliant. However, I felt like the tour was a little bit rush as in we didn't... More

A guided tour showing the history of the brewery. A great view of Bruges from the top and a free beer at the end. Worth a visit.

Did a tour here, was nice, when the weather is good, you can see the complete city but when we went it was foggy. You get a beer in the end, unfortunately you cannot choose the beer you prefer.
