Paid to do the 45 min brewery tour with my husband, even though I don't drink beer, and had a wonderful time. Our guide, Ing, was great fun and had everybody in stitches with her stories, and was able to answer all of the questions everybody asked her. After the tour, you get a small beer in the bar which...

Neither of us actually drink beer but both really enjoyed the tour which included both old and new aspects of the brewery, you get to visit the rooftop for some nice views around bruges and then includes a free beer each.

For eight Euros you get a tour or the Halve Maan Brewery with a tour guide with a great sense of humor as well as being astute in the knowledge of beer making. Be prepared for an in depth tour which includes a breathtaking view of the city from the top of the building. A tasting room at the end... More

After having tried hundreds of different Belgian and Dutch beers over the past 10 years, my wife and I agree on our favourite, Straffe Hendrik, brewed in the Halve Maan (Half Moon) brewery in Bruges. So, as I said, I'm biased. The tour is highly informative and, depending on which guide you get, either funny or very funny. The high... More

We found the 45 minute tour really fascinating and our guide was very knowledgeable. We were fortunate enough to enjoy good weather during our visit and the views across the city from the top of the brewery were exceptional. To round the tour off you receive a sample of the famous Bruges Zot in the lovely on site restaurant. We... More

Excellent tour about Bruges beer and why it became so popular. This fun tour is interactive and goes through the beer making process and history of Bruges beer.

As previous reviewers have advised - steep steps in places but very interesting tour - really enjoyed going up the spiral staircase on the last stage through the chimney and emerging outside to a fantastic view on a great day - lovely beer to finish - good value at 9 euro each

We really enjoyed the brewery tour. Our tour guide (Peter I think?) was informative and good fun. The tour takes you through their laboratory and up the old beer tower which they have converted in to a museum. A must-visit when in Bruges - it's the last of the original breweries remaining in the city. It's great value for money... More
