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.

The beer list doesn’t make up for the terrible service and abundance of tourists. They had no idea what I was talking about when I asked them what vintage Westmalle’s they had, and it took way too long to get a drink. Avoid this place.

Trendy, loud place that is much larger than I had expected with its terrace and 2 floors. The menu is indeed remarkable. We may blame the large number of macros, but there are still plenty of rarities and I doubt not that anyone on this website would have no idea what are or where come from several of those brews. So, I would not want to spend a whole evening there, but I was still very satisfied with the few very rare Belgians I got to try here. Where else can you get beers from Brabant and Vervifontaine.. and in the very center of Brussels. Direct, non-nonsense service. I come here as a businessman, a beer-hunter and once I’m done with business, I go and relax in other bars. It sure serves its purpose, though it does not go out of the way to promote craft brews.

I have mixed feelings about this place. It’s got a great selection on the menu but they are often out of stuff. On closer inspection the selection is geared for people who are more into style than substance. If already drunk, I think it’s a great fun place with lots of 20-something drunks, and loud, and easy to meet people. Otherwise it can be a horrible bar with an encyclopedic beer menu: what to do? Brussels has much better beer bars. The selection at the Delerium might be large, but it’s not necessarily top notch. Lots of mediocrity is on the list to boost stats and sales. It’s a place to get drunk. It’s not the most thoughtful selection and for better or worse is like a campus watering hole. Can be fun or annoying depending on the mood. Other, more genuine beer bars have selections that are much better in terms of sheer quality and more chill. That about sums up the Delirium Cafe: quantity, not quality. Note, the upstairs and downstairs are different. Even when asked I could not order off of the upstairs (big) beer menu when downstairs. Also it’s in a good location near Grand Place so if only in town for a few hours not a bad place to tank up.

It must be a heaven for a beer lover to go Delirium. Selection of more than 2000 beers. I did go there for 2 times and i will again go there for once again. Well service is late ad and girl on the bar bit unhappy about lots of work but she has such a big knowladge about beers. I also meet two belgiun beer hunters there. Minus are no food , no sale of cigar. and lack of service.

This is a very great beerpub with an enormous choise. They have beer from almost every country and more then 2000 different beers to choise from.
Come back again to this place !

I was in Brussels for 4 days and came here 3 times during that span. The interior is nothing special, with wood panelling and many specialty beer trays and glassware decorating the area, but it was perfectly fitting for this kind of place. The service was a bit iffy at times, with bartenders blatantly ignoring me for periods of time, but I was willing to forgive and forget due to the beer selection. I had many rare Belgians here, such as Pannepot (my first one!) and Aardmonnik from Struise, and the La Trappe Quadrupel, which until then I had also never seen. The place gets crowded with beer tourists, and the music gets sort of loud, but who cares? You’re at one of the beer meccas of the world. Word to the wise: unless you speak fluent French, be sure to point to the beer on the menu as you order it. The barstaff didn’t pick up my New York accent all that well.
