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

let me explain how something can turn into the worst bierexperience yet ...
me and a friend went drinking here . just like i did every month-or-so .
we asked for a glass of tap beer each , but got in trouble , since we didnt look 18 . i told here legal drinking age in belgium is 16 , not 18 .
she replied she knew it better cause she worked in a bar
i work in a bar myself, which caused the reaction ’than you dont know your job ’..
she asked for my ID , guess what ? turns out i’m 21 .
than she started pickin on my buddy , who’s 17 ( still, legal drinking age )
i had to drink his beer ( 7.5 abv ) , and he had to drink mine ( 5 abv )
we switched it back . we order something diffrent cause we have a difftent taste, maybe ?
than she threw away his glass ( we already paid for ) and replaced it with a 5 cl pour of ’floris white ’ ( lower ABV but very crappy and cheap shit ) i threw it away right in front of her and asked my payed beer back . we were forced to leave the bar . no money refund, no beer ( now all glasses were taken ) and even a very childish ’NA NA NANANA you have no beer hahaha ’from the waitresses .... thats just sad ...
how can i give this ANY point ? what the hell do 2000 beers mean, if you can only drink what that b**** decides ? how can i give it good value, if i pay for soemthing they than imidiatly take away, without doing anything wrong ?
and o yeah . not less than 4 cops told me i was right about the 16 = beer , ABV does not matter . so i mailed them . and guess what ? they replied !
’ Please understand that it was just a mistake, sorry about RUINING your day. We’ll talk to them. You should probably let go now and consider that these things can happen. ’
if this ’ can happen ’than its nothing unusual . so its not tat bad to make it public, right , Delirium Café ?

Great selection, and good prices. It was a very noisy place too, super crowded and full of very loud tourists. Not really the best place to enjoy a nice beer.

Fantastic place! I would also liked that the music wasn’t so loud and the place a lot less packed. But we had chairs at the bar an was very happy just staying there and finding another place was out of the question.....
The bartenders was knowledgeable and knew how to serve the different beers. We had Gouden Carolus Cuvee van Der Keizer 2000 (wan’t separated in blue and red for many years), it was in fairly good shape but no doubt over the top. Had a 2008 after, wich was divine!

This place is awesome. The only drawback is that it’s NOT a quiet place to discuss the subtleties of fine beer. It’s a huge bar with loud music and tons of people. But it’s a great time.
