The gem of all the Delirium bars, with lots more cooler bottles available. It can so get noisy here, as it did towards the end of our stop when a couple of big groups took over the place singing stupid beer songs. An absolute must if you go to Delirium Cafe.

I don’t think this should be a separate listing from the main Delirium Café, as it’s basically the upstairs bar, but it seems too late to stuff that cat back into the box. More than the main floor and downstairs bar, the Hoppy Loft caters to the craft beer geek. That means something different in Brussels than it does in Paris or London or New York, but that’s clearly the aim. This bar even flirted with banning smoking--in Delirium of all places!--before the ban became law, because it listened respectfully to a few noisy customers who wanted to smell their beers. I haven’t been here lately but in the past it was always quieter than the other bars. Usually an attentive bar(wo)man who knows his/her stuff. Worth a peek if you’re in the complex.

Good selection of hard to get international beers. Like the other Delirium rooms can get packed at night.

Not really a separate place from the Cafe, but they have different hours in the same space, so ok. This is the upstairs part that has a bunch of ipa’s, stouts and mostly American beers. This has a better selection than downstairs and not as many drunk puking 18 year olds. Come up here if open instead of downstairs.

Had a Mocha Bomb plus Pannepot Reserva 2007 while wife had a Delirium Tremens. Great place, mostly young people, great staff. Highly recommended.

I don’t think that this was a separate entry before when I visited. Anyway, a nice oasis in the madness of Delirium. Clean, no smoke! Had some Brew Dog, Stone, and other non-Belgian brews. Pretty small place, laid back. It was refreshing. Much better service.

Great place to visit if you are a bit tired of the Belgium beers or just want to taste something else. Focus on American beers, but stocks great stuff from all over the wold and seems to change the selection all the time. Extremely knowable staff, the dude behind the desk made a fantastic job recommending different kind of beer based on our groups preferences. Could probably easily spend a week here. Not a big place, rather crowdie during peak time, but people seems to move on, so just be patient and you will find a seat.

Splendid beer bar. All the other comments here are valid - quieter and generally more pleasant than downstairs. Actually quite a nice room in which to drink beer. There is a decent foreign beer menu so great for this if you’re based in Belgium, but the Belgian menu is still long and interesting enough with about 10 on tap too. I stuck to the Belgian stuff and prices seemed fair.

It was my second stay in Belgium and fifth? sixth? visit to Delirium Café that I realized that the quieter upstairs is actually a different bar. Being a North-American there is nothing there for me. The bar is more laid-back and more “cool” than the downstairs Delirium where drunk tourists hang out… loudly. But if I want a quiet atmosphere I walk a few blocks to Toone and drink classic Belgian beers in a superb bar. If I want the superior Belgian but can’t handle the noise of Delirium Café I can walk 10 minutes to Moeder Lambic Fontainas. But if you want non-belgian beers in the heart of Brussels and don’t mind paying absurd prices, then Delirium Hoppy Loft is for you. I’ve got to give it a good score because the selection is impressive and the place is nice. But this bar is interesting for locals only, why would a North-American/British/Dane/etc go drink a beer there while in Brussels is beyond me.

Why I rated selesction as 14? last time more than half of beers on tap were more or less known already, but maybe it is effect of just started year? Otherwise - nice palce for english/american style beers, usually either emply (when You’;re sitting alone) or owercrowded.
