Great tour of the brewery with details about making beer past and present. Nice glass of beer at the end.

The beer from the brewery tastes so much different the beer on tap in bars and the bottles. It's amazing and the tour is pretty interesting too. Once up the top you get a great view of Bruges! Recommend

Took the brewery tour which was very interesting, informative and entertaining thanks to the excellent guide. Highy recommend the tour and a blond beer reward at the end. Perfect.

Tour of the brewery is more about the history of the establishment. Although it's a working brewery, we didn't see much of the this. However the guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Also the price includes a drink in the bar afterwards, so all in...More

We had a fantastic time at the brewery tour, our guide was funny and knowledgable. There are English & French tours and are separate making it much more engaging than a bilingual tour that is often the only option at other venues. It does need...More

Worthwhile tour, lots of old brewing equipment still in situ rather than in posed scenarios. Nice glass of Brugse Zot at the end.

The brewery itself is pretty fun since its a maze of stairs that take you around the production plant. You can see the old and the new as you tour inside the brewery which is quite impressive and can even have a glimpse of the...More

We went on the XL tour, which is well worth the extra money as you get 3 glasses of beer included at the end. Our tour was given in both Dutch and English and was long enough to be interesting, but not too long to...More

Don't think so as it's not one of their beers. Plenty of their own to choose from - would definitely recommend the Brugse Zot unfiltered.

There is no lift, and as others have noted, it is a quite a climb up and down narrow, steep stairs. At least one flight it is advised to descend backwards, like a ladder. My 87-year-old Mum loved Bruges, but this... More
