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!

Yes, they have a huge beer menu, but half of the rarities aren’t actually there. And if they are, most waiters can’t find them. The downstairs bar where you get the rarities is over smoked. Beers that aren’t meant to age are allowed to go beyond the best before date, and we had a couple that were oxidized. The service varies from not caring about beer, to very dedicated. They’re fast though, props for that!

so much beers, many draft beers, interesting beer card, but not much information, also from the service-people

AMBIANCE - Downstairs, in a very comfortable and chill atmosphere. They played the best music I heard while in europe for 3 weeks. SERVICE - Would be a perfect 10, but you have to walk to the bar for drinks and food. Ask the friendly bartenders for their world record menu, and for any special recommendations for your own palate of beers. SELECTION - They have it all. Best selection of any bar, could use a few more on draught though. FOOD - The salami and cheese platter is a must, pairs with all of their beers. VALUE - For the selection, and tourist trap that it is - the price was very reasonable. Little to no mark-up on their common beers. OVERALL - One of the most unique and interesting bars in the world. Can’t miss out on this place while in Brussels

This place is unbelievable. I travel to Brussels two hours each way once every one or two weeks just to go to this bar. It has the most unbelievable selection of bottled beers, however I usually stick with the 23+ different beers on tap upstairs. It’s a big place with lots of tables and space and has great cheeses and sausage. The beers on tap change every time I go there and it allows me to experiment with beers I will never be able to try elsewhere.

I had read quite a few negative reviews about this place and had avoided it for my first 4 trips to Brussels. Biggest Brussels mistake ever. This place is unstoppable. Huge beer menu. Seriously the most extensive list I have seen anywhere, and with awesome prices on the great majority of beers as well. The French selection is phenomenal as well, maybe 200 or so to choose from. Germans, same thing. Cheese, sausage, beer snack stuff offered. Central location cant be beat. Open til 4 in the morning most nights so you can pack in a full day and still have plenty of hours to sample. I will never go to Brussels without spending some quality hours here.

Busy and loud place with loads of beers, huge telephone book of beers. Not sure how the bar tenders find the glass and the beer but it is impressive for sure. Don’t forget to look for the female version of the Manequin Pis just down the alley.

You love beer, you’ll love this place. Its one of the many place to stop in brussels. You will imediatlly find it a fun place to be, if you sit around an old beer barral or inside a old copper brew kettles or even at the tab bar to taste al the 30 plus draft beers, you’ll find something to be happy with. The atmospher is great, just an old beer tavern, and the selection of beers is endless, what else could you ask for to spend a few good hours in Brussels. I had the Delirium Christmas by draft.
