This is excelent located nxt to Antwerp Central Station, but itís complete a tourist trap. I always think that there conning me with the glasses. Selection is very good, but think the price is a bit high. A lot of times there isnít enough staff, so you need to wait a wile

Not great prices, ambiance decent with plenty of beer-related paraphernalia, selection was mediocre, waiter was completely lacking in any knowledge of his wares and rude to boot. Disappointing. Avoid.

Somewhat annoying if you end up having to ask for four different beers in order to end up with one they have in stock.

This place was a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde experience for me. First visit was a Friday morning onwards lunchtime. Quite and nice, with a few guests and some patient waiters serving our group. Nice selection of beer to be picked from a well informative menu. We all had a great time. Stopped by again after midnight and this time it was just a packed and noisy place with disturbing music and flashing lights all over. Better to sit outside. Strongly recommend to visit this place early at the day. My score for abiance would have been 4 or 5 then.

Noisy, very loud music, and crowded on a Friday eve. However, they have got one of the largest beer menu in town. The 88 pages Bier Encyclopedie is really impressive. Despite the noisy surroundings I had a great time with fellow ratebeerians from Norway. Sharing the 13% abv Bush de Nuits in friendly company was the highlight of the evening. Close to the railway station (visited, 29.04.2011).

decent selection with some true gems , good thing about the service is , itís quick but other than that they have no knowledge about beer, and tend to push their customers in choosing very very quickly and asking it several times. interior is quite cozy itís kind of antique with vintage beer tins and a huge old wooden bar. downside on my hand is that they have allot of true gems that are priced way too high i think , also the list includes some beers that they donít have cellared and thatís quite anoyng i think ... and because of the disco upstairs and the kind of disco / gamble houses in the neighborhood youíll end up with allot of the customers just comeong overthere to get drunk ... and also allot of loud music, i think this is just a place to have some of the beers you donít find anywhere else and then quickly leave .. not a great spot to conversate with other people or with your friends when it comes to beer ... and since itís allowed to smoke they donít have anything to nibble when ur having your beer ...

Very nice place, but too noisy, about 300 beers, including Black Albert, nice beer selection on tap.

Not far from Antwerp Central station on the main restaurant strip. Sat outside on two different days. 20 beers on draft, some good ones, some forgettable ones. Beer menu was nice and well explained, found the beers to be overpriced compared to any of the venues in other cities or even Brussels that serve similar products. Waiter on our first visit was professional and courteous, poured us the beers the right way. Second day we had a younger gal who just brought us the bottles, no hello no thank you. Place is nice and clean, on the way to the bathroom you get a nice view on their cellar which is impressive. Good selection of brews from around Belgium and again many beers listed were not available. Sadly, it tends to have this Delirium feel of bars that ride the new-wave of specialty beer bars and fails at offering a soul to the place. Instead, we had a staff that certainly didnít seem interested in sharing a love for beer. This to me contributes a lot to a bar atmosphere/ambiance, and I could not feel that coming from this place. I guess the place is in line with the feeling you get from walking on that street, restaurants aplenty with menu in view and waiters trying to call passersby to stop for a drink or some food. Bier Central fits that format. Good for tourists, but if you want the real soul of a typical Antwerpse bar you must venture into the smaller areas of the town.

New place in Antwerp, affiliated with Kellyís Irish Pub next door. Reminds me a bit of Delirium Cafť in many ways. Very tourist like, comparable to the Delirium Cafť, nothing bar-like about this or least nothing like a Belgian one. The service was not bad, they did seem to be pushing us to make our order, asking 3 times before we were ready but we did take a long time. About 20 beers on tap, a lot for Belgium, including trappist beers which until recently was an extremely rare sight. Bottle list was very good, lots of interesting things, couple of rarities, there are bound to be a lot of great things to be found. Bit pricey but not excessive. Interesting albeit awkward place, can see it becoming a bit like the Delirium Cafť in Brussels. Nice but not recommended if you are looking for something more quite or more traditional. /// This place has gone really downhill since earlier visits, terrible loud 90s music, drunk tourists, almost insulting lack of knowledge about beers, lots of things on the menu are not available anymore, puzzling refusal to speak Dutch etc. open way latter than most places in Antwerp, basically a worse Delirium
