Not entirely sure why people seem so down on this place. I get that it’s not very monastic, loud music and rammed full of tourists. But it does have a whole load of trappist and abbey beers, including several on tap, a selection which would be considered exceptional in pretty much any other country in the world. Service was absolutely fine, especially given how busy the place was

Quite loud and crowded, but a good and friendly atmosphere. Kitschy interior. Good selection of mainly Belgian beers.

Belle sélection de bières d’abbaye et de trappistes (dont la Gregorius autrichienne!), personnel compétent (comme partout dans le Delirium Village), déco un rien kitsch (on est tout de même dans un quartier archi-touristique!) et pour les amateurs de vodkas, une carte longue comme un jour sans pain!

Only tap beers (close to 20).
Its located at the Delirium Village and its very touristic as well. Not my style, very noise and loud, but has a decent beer selection.

Monasterium is located in the Delirium complex meaning that this place is also very central and very touristy. Interior is an odd neon faux Medieval church gothic type of thing, part kitsch, part awesome. Being a Delirium location it chares some common characteristic, meaning it can get very crowded in here, service was very good but that obviously depends on who you get and they have the same obligatory handful of crappy Huyge beers on tap. Obviously this place cashes in on the trappist/ abbey hype train and offers an ok list of the standard trappist and abbey beers. Overall they serve agreeable beers that are not really worth doing extra effort for but are certainly palatable. Anyway it is clear who they cater for and these people are bound to leave very satisfied – everyone happy. Their Vodka selection is a whole other deal – about 300 different kinds to choose from – I am not an enthusiast of Vodka but I got to try some very interesting and highly commendable, craft Vodka here. Vodka is clearly the more interesting option here and I can see myself doing some future Vodka ticks here.

(Visited July & Oct 2012) Really nice bar, that is part of the Delirium complex. Interior is mainly in dark wood and stone and the atmosphere is more quiet and laid back than in the Tap Bar or the Café. Selection is quite good, with focus on Belgian abbey beers. I managed to find a fair amount of new ratings. There’s a vast selection of vodkas as well, if you’re in to that. Service was swift and efficient. This is an excellent alternative if you want to retreat from the noisier bars in the area. And compared to the Hoppy Loft, it opens quite early. Will be back.

The middle place at the Delirium Brussels location. I had no chance to try the Hoppy loft as it was closed when I visited, but compared to the classic Delirium Cafe downstair this is certainly less interesting. The ambiance is less characteristic, they do not serve same bottle selection as the Cafe and music is still loud. Only plus to this floor is the huge selection of taps and the fact that it appears to be less crowded. So easier to seat and enjoy the beer.
