This was one of three alleyway pubs the other being Becasse and the other a few doors along I forget the name of; however alll three are cracking little places and on a cold, miserable, wet, windy, snowy day like it was when visited on Saturday 17th December 2011, all of them were just about the best and most atmospheric places that we went to in Brussels this weekend. On another day, say in summer a place like this or the other two may not hold the same attraction but hey-ho we visited in Winter and it is the only time Iíve been in here, though Loz tells me that Iíd been here before though it was a fleeting visit. I had an Orval Loz a Kasteel Bruin, the place was busy, warm and buzzing with chatter. The surroundings were full of olde world charm, the service was excellent and it just came across as a cracking little place to visit that is right in the heart of the action but also off of the radar of most visitors. Once again the íAround Brussels in 80 Beersí proved very helpful and was remarked on by a fellow countryman and his entourage, who spoke of how helpful it had been to them on their visit and how much they loved the book.

Nice interior and pretty laidback. Not a great selection, but as long as they have Westvetleren 12 I am happy!

One of a number of interesting pub in the area hidden down alley ways. Come for the atmosphere as the beer choice is pretty average.

Iíve actually been to this bar twice both, times Iíve been to Brussels and it is one of my favorite Brussels Bars. Most Brussel bars are way to crowded and noisy and appeal to the tourist. This place is located down some random alley so you really have to look for it to find it. Its small and authenic inside, tons of locals. The beer menu is small but has all the trappist beers and both times Iíve been here they have had Westy 12 at a very reasonable price.
If youíre looking to escape the busy scene and want a great place to just chill and drink some good beer, this is the place to go.

Authentic old-school pub with yesteryear charm and character. The bar folk were colourful and chatty, though service was staunchly no frills. I liked it. The pub the locals go to, but Iím sure just as many tourists come through as well. Beers are not the most exciting but itís Belgium so thereís always something worth drinking. Get along and check it.

Very cool, hard to find regulars bar in Brussels. Old school interior with an impressive old wood bar, though very smoky. Only food available when we were there was bagged chips, so plan on eating elsewhere.
If youíre looking for something off the beaten path and not besieged by tourists, this is your venue.

Nice decoration in this place, like a really old house. A grumpy couple serving at the bar. I saw they have a good selection but I only had Westvetleren 12 there, oh yeah. Kind of quiet with some locals old folks. Definitely worth the visit.

Quite special fake-gothic interior, about a century old. A few good beers, worth a visit.

This was my other favorite place to go in Brussels, down a narrow, long, brick alley. Almost the opposite of Delirium Cafe, nice and quiet & defiantly the place for localís, small but good selection of beer, had a westy for 10 euros, Yum. I will go again.
