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

... and very quickly checked out. This place is simply some bloody hell on wheels. You need to use both elbows quite effectively to get in, and once you are there, no one notices you, but that comes hardly as a surprise as the noise of muzak is positively deafening. The temperature inside is 37 degrees, as hordes of more-than-merry youngies and tourists from all over the world have gathered here, presumably with the wacky view to tasting all the 2000-odd beers on offer (no time to check if that is true). No food except for nibbles. Not cheap, and they probably know it. I hurried, ehm... stormed my way out with a strong resolution never to return.

If you want more calmness - go the the "Hoppy Loft", upper floor. Service is super when it’s not crowded, very good when it is. Exhaustive bottle list as can be expected. Prices are very good.

Went two times on our Brussels vist, first time we sat outside which was much better than inside since it gets very crowded and loud inside. Selection was very good and the possibility of getting tasters of the tap beers is great. A few of their beers in the bottle list were sold out but I guess its difficult to keep such extensive list up-to-date. Prefer to enjoy my beers in a more silent and relaxed environment.

Un choix énorme de bières, le plus vaste au monde avec pas mal de surprises. C’est une adresse incontournable de Bruxelles.

The good: Delirium cafe is the holy grail for many beer enthusiasts. With a beer list coming close to all Harry potter books combined, it is sure to keep you reading and testing out beers the whole night. The service is excellent with some truly knowledgeable bartenders. BIG plus for so many trappist on tap! The bad: Way overcrowded and big. Forget ambiance as you fight your way to the bar among all the other tourists. The acoustics makes a simple conversation become a yelling game where you have to resolute to using sign languages to communicate.

Very nice place to go to when you pop by Brussels. Nice ambiance, nice people and always something new to discover. The only problem being that most of their massive beer menu is not available ...

Great place. Noisy, crowded place with a huge belgian beer selection, if you want beers from other countries you go upstairs to the hoppy loft.
