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.

A classic and very charming bar with wood panels and not much going on beyond the locals just relaxing. Beer list is quite short.

I gave in and had the Vieux Temps which I was warned not to get because its just a run of the mill pale ale. The bar itself is really cool looking and thatís what brought us in. Not a great selection for Brussel standards, but nice to enjoy a round in.

Somewhat hidden down a small alley. A classy underground bar with only a limitied number of drafts BUT Westvleteren 12 under the counter for 10E. of course, worth the stop for this.

Cozy classic pub with old and dark wood. Friendly table service, thouhg not very informative. A local feel, and a limited beer menu.

Visited late May 2009. 2 minute walk from Grand Place and 10 meters from Beertempel. In a small alley way. Very cozy and calm atmosphere. 20-25 beers. We ordered Orval and took a short break from the busy streets of Brussels. No rare beers!
