Wow! We loved this place. It only cost us 9 euros for a 45 minute tour with a drink included. Our tour guide was delightful. She had many funny anecdotes and you could clearly tell she enjoyed her job. Part of the tour included going up a tower and being able to look out at Brugge. This was a highlight... More

This was truly fascinating experience. At the end of your visit you are offered a FREE sample (half a pint I think) of their famous Belgian Beer produced there. This was definitely the highlight for us at the time.You can stay in De Halve Maan Brewery's bar/restaurant/cafe and enjoy another beer or food with a lovely view of the Canal.I... More

We went on the tour which has a lot of stairs that results in a wonderful view of Bruges. Tour guide kept it informative and fun. We worked up a thirst for our post tour drink.

I took the tour which was interesting. Then I had a couple of their beers. When you take the tour they give u a beer for free... but do not judge their beer of of this one type. I thought it was a terrible beer. However after trying their double, triple and quadruple I changed my mind!

This place is decent if you want to stop for a drink. Unfortunately, it felt like the wait staff was ignoring us the entire time.

Our surprise for dinner. Looked at a nearby restaurant which was full so decided on De Halve Maan for our evening meal. Wow were we impressed. Vegetarian lasagna was hot and a generous serving and oh so tasty. We saw a very appealing pie served to others - it was a rabbit pie - too good to miss and well... More

We did the xl tour to get the 3 drinks. The tour talks about the building more than the brewing process. Our tour guide was Marc and he injected a lot of humour into the tour

Comfort shoes and small bags for the tour: you will walk up and down the whole facility, there are some narrow paths to go though. The tour guide explain the whole process from the very beginning. It's a family business, so you learn the history behind it from start to nowadays. At the end of the tour a beer sampling... More

We went on this tour because we are used to doing Champagne tours in France. It was interesting, informative and well worth the time. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. There are quite a few steps and two staircases that had to be negotiated backwards, but your reward at the end is a glass of unfiltered blonde beer that is... More
