yes .. sigh ... i can easely puit a beerlist of 100s of beers as well, and then claim ’its all done’ . trust me, i worked there ( or at least, tried to for a few days ) . they rip their people off, and do the same to the costumors. working there means your willing to let them take advantage of you . so they can’t realy select. thats why most of the staff works there onley for a few weeks, and now nothing about what the hell they’re selling . the beermenu is good, accept all the ’ hard to get - read; not for sale at supermarket-stuff ) is always ’ out of stock’ . permanentlly . its just to fill up the menu . prices are high . service is unknowing, manu is nowhere near right ( they claim 300 ? lets say they might have 80 beers, all of wich in the category as leffe ) so yeah .. whats positive here? location, for one ( altough this has the result of many selfclaimed beerprofessionals coming in , cause they found it and drank like 40 diffrent beers in their lives ( HERO ! ) you figured, cant realy give any good reason to go here AVOID AT ALL CAUSES

Had dinner here right before we got on the train to head back to Brussels. Big place that was fairly busy. Service was just ok, he seems put out to have to wait on us. Food was alright. Good selection of beers, lots of drafts and a beer book of bottles. Prices were decent if you hunted for bargains. All around this place is just ok, seemed very corporate and the service kind of sucked. The location does make it a handy place to have a beer though.

Belgian beer needs is own glasses and that’s not the fact here. Too noisy and there is a awful smell in the pub. Maybe good for a tourist but not for the locals.

Nice selection, but pricey. a bit of a tourist trap. handy if you’ve missed your train, being right next to the station

Mixed feelings about this place. It’s a big, cavernous pub with 20 taps and hundreds of bottles. And it’s right by central station, so lots of potential! But the taps are all common beers, with no rotation, and of the handful of beers I haven’t rated among the bottles most were unavailable or the bartender "had never heard" while there is a picture of each one in the glossy menu.. Subpar. I felt the prices were also quite high overall. But a good visit perhaps if you haven’t had a lot of Belgian beers yet.

Bier Central is located on a very busy street, in the midst of other restaurants/bars. In the summer, expect the outdoors area to be crowded. The indoors space is quite roomy and peaceful with a nice atmosphere. The bottle selection is quite decent, but the taps seemed to be mostly common beers. The beer list is exceptionally clear and informative. Prices are decent. For example the Viven Imperial IPA I had was 2,90 €. However, some prices seem to be set a bit higher than elsewhere (probably due to the location). For example Chimay Blue or Achel costs 4,80 €, which is quite high for such common beers. Service was decent, as far as I could tell. Overall, considering the central location, Bier Central is a pretty nice beer bar, but don’t expect anything exceptional. If you visit this place midday or early afternoon, you can enjoy a beer (indoors) in peace and quiet.

Fake but cozy, as the suspension of disbelief comes easily to me. Twenty beers on draft, totally devoid of surprises. The list of 300 bottles had plenty to interest; I’ve heard many are not in stock, but I had no problems. Prices were a bit random. Staff didn’t really seem to know or care much about the beers, considering this is an ambitious specialist bar in a choice location. But they were easy enough to flag down. Food was just OK. Lots of tables, big and small, including some interesting half-barrel nooks in the back. The TVs should be thrown out the windows of the upper level, immediately.
