I was dissapointed when I first walked in. Only a few tables full, about 20 on tap. My friend and I had a couple, and I asked about a specific beer, and the bartender suggested we check downstairs. There’s a downstairs? THAT’S where the action is! Granted, they were out of several that I wanted to try, but I still had more than a few really good beers, served from a helpful staff. Sad to see Ughsmash had a bad experience, I wonder if I bumped shoulders with him?

I had an unfortunately poor experience here. We stopped in early in the day when it was relatively quiet. I flipped through the beer menu and struck out with my first 2 choices.. then I asked if they had De Dolle Speciaal Brouwsel 20, and the bartender had no idea what I was talking about.. then I asked if they had Pannepot Reserva, which they did, but they weren’t selling it.. finally I ordered Pannepøt and made sure to specify the version that I wanted, and I was scoffed at for making her go to the cellar for only 1 beer.. and she comes back with an un-capped Pannepot. It wasn’t busy, and I wasn’t being unreasonable. The restaurant is quite large, and it’s evident that since Delirium is in all of the guide books now (they have 2000 beers!), it’s a tourist trap and people walk around you snapping pictures of nothing while you’re trying to drink. I might go back, but if things get stupid again, I’m outta there.

Amazing place. Only comes second to Kulminator in Antwerp. The only drawback is that in the summer there are a bunch of tourists who don’t know good beer and are loud and obnoxious. But if you go early an on a weekday, it is a great experience. I must have liked it, I went 6 times in 4 days. Make sure you check out the statue of the girl taking a piss in the alley.

2000 bottles on their menu? Wow. This place had a very interesting feel to it. Very very loud as I went on a Thursday night and they had a live band. Staff was extremely busy. One bartender was very condescending when I asked him a question... this left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Go for the selection and expect nothing else.....

Despite all of the negativity concerning this place, you need to go here. Cavernous interior, loads of schwag and a smaller upstairs seating area and an outdoor set of tables. If you get here early, you’ll have a very good experience, take your time, browse the menus, and order at your leisure. Later in the day, you need to make a list of what you want when you’ve got the menu and order 2-3 at a time. A great deal of the problem here could be dealt with by a better layout. What you’ve got is a tiny bar with 2-3 bartenders trying to serve the 200 or so people who are stacked three deep at the bar, but I can’t imagine they’ll be doing a rebuild anytime soon. Because of the crowds, the bartenders can be extremely surly, if you aren’t prompt about what you want when it’s busy like this. The most bothersome part for me was the impenetrable wall of blue haze that builds up when it gets crowded.

I heard a lot of bad things about this place. What can I say..? This is probably the worst experience concerning service & guidance I have ever tried. Their selection is set to be about 2500 different beers. However the menu they got out on the tables and in the bar only count about 30 beers ( commercial beers off course) I found out that they only got 1 map (1 copy) of the whole menu and if I wasnt pointing out the excact beer it was impossible to get anything. EX. Late the first evening I had 3 or 4 different fantome’ brews, which I found in thee map after 45 minutes of searching the place, and when I came later the next day and wanted to purchase some more fantome’s the waitor told me that they never had more than 1. When I told him I had at least 3 different ones the night before he told me I was lying. The same with the struise beers. Another went and got rosse and wit and said that that was the ones they’ve made. Experienced 6 or 7 waitors all being unable to provide any service at all

What a place. Basically impossible to find but when you do....... Great selection, lots of tops. Little overboard on Floris tap stuff. IPFreely ordered some great stuff I would have never heard of. Hot bartender with short hair. Some of the staff are rather clueless but a great party bar with unbelievable seection and reasonably priced

Very good place divoded in three floors, the top one to be more relaxed in a table, the middle one full of people of all ages with a very nice desing on the taps (free fall), and the bothom floor full of young people on a saturday night with good music. Amazing beer selection, a beer drinker paradise. Very good choice if you are a beer entusiast. The bad part it might be too popular and the smoke of the cigarrettes. But overall is great!

I can see how this place gets ratings all over the map. I visited twice, once early in the day and once late at night. During the day, it was fairly slow, so I was able to sit at the bar, chat with a few people and order my beer without feeling rushed. That being said, my bartender was kind of a prick. When I went back the following evening, we ended up with a solid bartender that was fast and knew her shit. However, it was way too crowded, filled to the walls with teenagers and smoky as hell. You can’t deny the beer selection. It’s a crap shoot, but you’ll always be able to find something interesting to drink.

Was the only one of the bars on my hitlist that I got to actually go in to (Brugs Beertje, Bier Circus, and Drie Fonteinen were all closed), so that helps bump up the overall score for me. Other than that, this place was a disappointment. Aside from the "menu" there was nothing here that really impressed me. It was extremely crowded (on a monday), though my wife and I managed seats at the bar. We were mostly surrounded by tourists, and most of them young male Americans on backpacking treks. Most of the bartenders were unattentive and rude, one of them even shook his head and rolled his eyed when a girl came up to the bar and incorrectly pronounced the name of the beer she wanted. I probably won’t return.
