Bruges is known for its beer and chocolate, right? And this gangsta fucking loves beer. Chocolate too, innit.
This wonderful little place is known for its apparently brilliant brewery tour, but we just popped in for a beer and some food…and we’re very glad we did. It was our honeymoon and the staff made us feel very welcome.
At one point they asked us to provide background for a photo shoot that was taking place, which we were happy to do. And when they found out we were newlyweds, we got a free beer.
Not just any free beer, either. We were given a choice. And we chose very, very wisely. Their Bourgogne des Flandres house beer is officially my favourite beer. It’s a delicious, fruity number that I couldn’t get enough of. And it’s even better on draft.
The food we opted for was a toasted sandwich which we shared, as well as a little selection of cheese and bread. Top marks for the food too. But it’s all about the beer.
Located right on the main canal, the view from the windows are gorgeous. Romantic? Hell yes. And with a couple of pints of that stunning house beer in me, even my gangsta ass was feeling a romantic flush coming over me.
All in all, this is a magical little pub in a magical city. We wish we’d went on the brewery tour too and, next time we’re ‘In Bruges,’ we will certainly do so.
