2004 beers in it’s full catalogue is pretty impressive. We were there at around dinnertime, and we found a cosy seat where we had some rare beers at good, but not great value. I was impressed by the fact that the guys could recommend something out of the top of their head. Nice place, very touristy, but it’s Brussels, what would you expect?

Kind of a tourist trap, to be sure. But I was a tourist, so who am I kidding? I went to the place with a cute girl and we had a blast. She had the Delirium, appropriately enough, and I can’t recall what I had. Something cheap, I know that. We drank in the early afternoon and there were not many other people in the bar, so it was a nice, intimate occasion. Overall a great experience and a very decent bar.

I do not understand why this bar has a star! Big menu, but not quality it’s a money factory!

If you like a noisy place, if you don’t need help to find the beer you want, if you like to go on the bar to get served, this is definitely the place you should be.
They have so many beers, you will find your happiness.
Unless, flee the place and go somewhere else (not so far there’s Poechenellekelder and it’s far far far better)

I was at the DC in June and it was a great place to go. Me and some buddies were on a beer trip extravaganza and wanted to try as many beers as possible. We found a very helpful bar man who we told to just keep bringing us different beers with 4 glasses and for two nights we slammed about 30 different beers.
The selection is huge with around 2000 beers and barman are very knowledable.
The biggest downside is the atmosphere which was almost like being a 30 year old at a high school. 16 year old drunk belgians are not a cool crown to hang with.
If you just care about the beer selection you should go here.
My first review was filled with enthusiam of a new craft beer drinker not going to many bars. After going to this place again, my review is much lower. Yes they do have 2000 beers, but nothing especially rare. It is really smokey, way too busy, and loud. Its not a place for craft beer drinkers, more of a stop for the young crowd and a huge tourist trap. I can’t tell you how many 20 person Asian tour groups walked through in a hour.
They do have a new area, the hoppy room that has American beers. I was quite impressed with their selection of beers, great for non-Americans.

main entrance has about 20+ taps, downstairs has all the bottles.
Wasn’t too busy, server was very friendly.
There isn’t much atmosphere to speak of, just some music in the background.
They do carry a bunch of Delirium brands but also many local beers that aren’t widely available.
Prices are reasonable for Brussels.
I would not call it a typical Belgian bar or even a Brussels bar, server had time to chat about the beer, but the crowd seemed to have a lot more drunk guys as time progressed in the evening.
If you want a quite spot for beers in Brussels, this is not it.

the place was big enough, beers selection was quite good. there was a lot of young people not much interested in quality. the staff is not much interested in explaining beers to people

Big and loud. Huge beer list, but availability is spotty. Wasn’t too impressed, probably because it’s not very relaxing and for the size of the beer list isn’t really a beer bar.

Fascinating end to crawl on Sat 16th January in a group with a fellow reviewer. Just as heavily crowded as it always is, but for some reason it seemed slightly easier to get served than last time.
Not sure if I could remember from previous visit but smoking is ALLOWED in parts of Delirium Cafe. Beer range still in 4 figures and there were a handful of "phone book" menus being passed around if you were lucky enough to see one. "Only" about 50 beers on the mass-circulated A4 single-sheet menu though.
While I was chatting to a group of locals at another table from us I missed a punter being physically thrown out for lewd behaviour! And my back wasn’t turned more than 2 minutes!
Anyhow it was still well worth finishing here and enjoying the lively atmosphere.
Guaranteed not everyone will like this bar, but definitely go once and give it a chance to grow on you!
