Went there July 27th on a daytrip to Brugge, to me this was the nicest beer store in Brugge, the Biertempel had nothing on them service and selection wise. Most of all the beers in stock were found with the corresponding glass, beers were reasonable in price as long as they weren't available in the supermarket, if you want a simple Faro, St Bernardus or Orval, skip this place. If you want to find your cantillons, la chouffe's, 3 fonteinen and very hard to find local brews, this is the place to be. Due to luggage restrictions we only walked out with a Vlaamsche leeuw beer and glass but I will be back!

Impressive one roomed (big room though) beer selection. You are left alone to wander around, help is available if required,two females on duty when I visited, the young one spoke English, the elder not so well versed. Each bottle I bought was wrapped and placed in a bag for me, only beershop to do that in Brugges.
Just as expensive as De Bier Tempel and 2be, with about the same number of beers to choose from. I got my Vicaris 'Generaal' and 'Tripel' as well as three 'St Idesbald' beers from the Huyghe brewery here.

Nice shop, but definitely not the best in Brugge. I found it to be heavily on the expensive side. Good and nicely priced selection of 750s though. Selection of Belgium beers was nice and rather extensive, but the shop had kind of souvenir shop feeling inside - brightly lit, wide spaces, postcards, some beer-related souvenirs....I did not feel comfortable there.
There was an excellent and reasonably priced selection of glassware, this I liked the best about the shop. Also staff was very, very friendly.

This was the first bottle shop I went to in Belgium and as soon as I walked in I was completely blown away. Rows and rows of hundreds, maybe even a thousand different beers ranging from every style as well as a very impressive selection of glassware. They even had 3 liter glasses placed right next to the Jerabooms. Also, they had a very nice selection of gift packs. The woman who owned this establishment was very knowledgeable and friendly, putting up with my childish giddiness and constant barage of questions. I spent a lot of money here but the prices were no very expensive. This is a great bottle shop that is a must when in Brugges. Also, there is a place next door that makes amazing waffles.

Large shop selling beer, jenever, a few other spirits, glasses and souvenirs. A sizable selection of the Belgian standards at higher than normal prices. Well worth the look as it's a nice shop, but I'd most certainly spend my euro's elsewhere (notably the Bier Tempel). While well organized and well presented, it is obvious this place caters to the casual drinker and the tourist looking to bring back something boozy from Belgium. No lurking gems for BA's to find here.
It's funny how your perception changes quickly though while traveling - if this store was the first one I happened on, I would've thought it was great, as we've got nothing like this at home.

There are plenty of beer stores in Bruges, but we decided to stop in here on the afternoon of 3/26/07 to pick up a few souvenirs because they seemed to have the best overall selection of the types of glasses that we were looking for. We picked out a few to take home with us, and the girl at the counter was very nice and bubbled-wrapped them all for us. Prices overall for glasses seemed pricey in Bruges, so if you see what you like, just buy it. The Bottle Shop was laid out nicely and had a great selection.

Well, if the dent in my wallet is any indication of the quality of a beer-shop, then this one gets high marks all the way around. I spent more here than I did any other beer-shop in Bruges, for the only reason that they seem to have a more extensive selection and quite a bit of depth in each selection. The young lady behind the counter was very nice but also affording of any browsing-time that was needed (I browsed a lot!). She was also very helpful when questions did come up (well, except to the older British woman who was looking for some Japanese beer... that whole scene was actually very funny!). But, would say that this beer-shop should be your first and last visit in Bruges; but definitely check out the others in-between.

Concurring with the previous review, this modern and open space is right off the town square and just before the Hotel Erasamus (my hq in Brugge).
Bottles are a bit dearer here and if you've got the chance to go elsewhere I would, but as I didn't I could still find most everything that I needed for my return home. The counter girl was pleasant and helpful to me and double wrapped my purchases after being told they had to make it back across the world to my home.
A good place to stop while in Brugge. If you're elsewhere I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

The Bottle Shop really could not be easier to find on Wollestraat. It is only a block down from the Markt.
An extremely clean and well laid out store with a large selection of mostly beer with a few knicknacks and some other beverages (which I ignored). As I walked in I was greeted, but other than that they seemed to not even care if I was in the store or not. No attempt was made to see if I required any assistance and for a town like Brugge, this seemed a bit odd.
The selection was very well arranged and everything was easy to find. Unfortunately there really was not anything on the shelves that was a true gem. Most everything could be found elsewhere for much, much less money. The prices were tourist based for sure and seemed like a ripoff on certain bottles.
I'd go back in to The Bottle Shop, but unless a gem was located, with those high prices I'd probably not spend my Euro here.
