Re-rate: this time I was here on a winter noon. The place was almost empty. Now it was a lot better than last time, I got to see the big menu and it had tons of great stuff. Service is still a bit annoying but at least someone pays attention to you. Prices a quite high for some of the beers. It’s a good place, just never come here on busy times! 3/6/14/-/5/16 /./././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././
It’s a rainy summer Friday noon in Brussels. I have about an hour and a half left before I have to catch a bus. I say to myself ’’I gotta go to the Delirium Cafe, I’ve heard so many great things about that place’’. Well, it was quite hard to find without a good map of Brussels but I’m finally here - I go inside and at the entrance I already start to hear very loud rock music - ’’well, at least they have 2004 beers’’. I go downstairs and the place is so packed with young students and backpackers it’s difficult even to find a place to stand. It’s really smoky, and I feel like I’m standing inside the biggest ashtray in the world. I try to pick up a menu but they’re all on tables right now, I wait for another 15 minutes (standing all this time) and finally get my hands on this book. Very soon I give it up since there are about 4 people standing beside me just waiting for me to finish and hand them the menu. I’m going to the bar and try to order one of the beers but the bartender is too busy for me. I go upstairs thinking maybe I should sit over there, but no waiter comes up. I’m gonna drink my beer in another place. At least I got a pretty photo of beer bottles. I’m going to Belgium again soon, and I’ll try this place again, hoping things will be slightly better 1/1/13/-/-/3

A humongous place with many sections and levels. Quite a tourist spot, so if you want to avoid the busyness, go during the day. Beer selection is pretty standard, with nothing that special available, but still some cool bottles available. Prices are a bit on the higher side; service is decent. Definitely worth a stop though after visiting the nearby Moeder Lambic Fontainas for a night of more standard beers on the cheaper side.

Blir inte så imponerad när man ska skryta med att man har över 4000 öl när det mesta är ointressant. Trevlig tapselection och erbjuds provsmak gratis utan konstigheter före köp. Värt att besöka dagtid om man vill uppleva ölen. Svängde förbi lite senare på kvällen och tog mig 50m från entrén före det var knökfullt. Skön musik och trevlig personal. Tror inte dom hade mat, men det finns restauranger x massor precis utanför

Ambiance is very good, underground style for those who like it. Service is ok. Selection is impressive of course, but it’s a shame that they have only a few non-belgium micros. Overall good!

Visited several times. Can be a bit difficult to find, but once there you can only enjpy the huge selection of beers at this place, both on tap but mainly the bottle selection is great. Being what this place is, it can at times be very crowded and busy, noisy and very warm, but if you come in the morning or early afternoon I find it ok. Friendly staff, cosy atmosphere, for sure worth a revisit.

Un posto decisamente per turisti. Se cercate un ambiente giovane è il posto che fa per voi, mentre se cercate birre di qualità c’è molto meglio a Bruxelles. Il locale è su più piani, l’unico dove trovare birre buone è il piano superiore, cioè la parte di locale un pò più tranquilla dove troverete una selezione enorme di bottiglie e diverse spine tenute bene. Al pian terreno invece lasciate stare, basta vedere come lavorano per rendervi conto della qualità della birra che servono, tantissime spine ma tenute malissimo.

Hot mess. Fun to watch the massive amount of beer being poured, but the bartenders are just rude and pissed off for some reason. We went next door to the monasterium. Much more pleasurable.

Great place to visit if you want to choose between a wide ranges of Belgium breweries, they do have a lot of other beers as well, but the Belgium beer is the main focus. The place where really crowdie early in the evening and the service naturally thereafter. A must visit place, but probably not the place you want to spend the entirely Brussels trip.

Talk about your all out dives. This place is a beer dive bar and a half. The tap list was mediocre. Best thing I found on draft was Tilquin Gueuze. Service is the same as any bar packed with people, the bartender can only go as fast as he can. Didn’t have food, don’t even know if they have any.. During my beer on the two occasions I have visited each time I was propositioned by at least 3 hookers. I am imagine that could be a plus for some but was a neg for me. Prices are fair. Yet, this is one of the "famous" spots, so stop in a check it out at least once.

I fell into the trap that everyone tries to alert you here. I went to Delirium during a very very very busy Saturday night. The score I give above can easily reach a maximum level if I visit it again during the quiet week.
It was packed with drunk kids and students. It took me 20 min to get a beer from the bar (the barman was very friendly). Big selection I guess, but at that time I had no time to look it up. Very decent prices. I think during the week it will be a great experience. for sure next time I will go to the hoppy loft above, cause down there they do not serve much from IPA, Stout beers. For sure a must for a beer geek.
