Fantastico durante i concerti, sicuramente non consigliabile per andare a fare una degustazione, ma ottimo per bere una buona birra fino a tarda ora. Servizio non impeccabile

Beautifulst pub in the full center of Brussels, beside the main street of restaurants. Huge selection of beers at tap. Very wide, on three floors with chosen wide of mostly Belgian beers. Much characteristic one, with much space in order to be based. Little pleasant air when it is filled up for the number of smokers. In any case wonderful with colored insigns, incredible selection of glassware anywhere and indeed young climate.

Down a little alley you will find the female counterpart to Manneken Pis, Jeanneke Pis. You will also find the Delirium Café. This bar has a huge selection of beers. Probably between 10 and 15 different beers on tap, and many many more available in a bottle. Huge selection of Belgian beers, of course, but also a large selection of beers from all over the world (especially Germany). I only took a quick glance at the rare and vintage beers, which, they also appeared to have a good selection for. First time I ordered, I tried doing so in French. He was able to understand, but subsequent times I ordered in English and I think they understood me much better. All the staff I encountered understood English well and were quite helpful. Everything I ordered came in its proper glassware, and they seemed to have a good selection of glassware, so that shouldn’t be much of a problem. I went with a Belgian friend and we were meeting her friends there, so I spent my time pretty much exclusively downstairs. It was quite crowded, but it was in the early evening on a Saturday. Fortunately we found a table and before her friends showed up the place cleared out a little bit. That said, the basement was a little loud and smoky, and it seems like it gets crowded fairly easily and often. This bar is definitely worth a visit. Huge selection, and if you come at the right time, it would probably be a very nice place. It seemed to have a good mix of people between native Belgians and travelers as well as beer geeks and non-geeks.

If you would like to drink a beer you don’t find anywhere else, you have to go to the Delirium. In fact, there the Café is divided in two parts: upstairs you have a huge selection of beers at tap, downstairs you have also many beers at tap, but also a huge selection of beers in bottle. When you come in both at the part uupstairs or downstairs you arrive in a very crowdy and noisy pub, too crowdy to my opinion. The upstairs part isn’t very cozy, the downstairs part is more cozy, but there are much more better places to drink a beer. Also you have to belucky to find free chairs and/or a free table. Why go then to the Delirium? For the huge selection of beers you have off course. Not only Belgian beers, also foreign beers. But when you look at the card and you go to ask the beer (in this case I asked some special beers I don’t find somewhere else) they simply don’t have the beer or they have to search for 10 minutes somewhere in their caves to find a dusty bottle. And when you pay the bottle, it finally seems there was a lower price on the card! Also, for the foreign beers on the card there are asked rather high prices for a beer which in 99% of the cases isn’t better than the Belgian ones. The service is in fact OK, but looks more like machinery (because of all the people there). A hyped, nearly legendary pub, but a bit the victim of its own succes I think.

Huge selection of draft and bottled beers. Large place, can be crowded. Nice atmosphere but misses some cossy character.

Was dissapointed from all the hype. The place isnt very cozy. the beer selection is good but if the bar back has to run down to the basement to get it, it could take some time. I guess i expected more

Nice place, so many young people and chaos inside, but the selection it’s good. On tap, upstairs, i found very good beer and some USA beers.

Its a "must go" place in Brussels, but i suggest to be there early afternoon. Late night is very crowdy with a lot of noise.
