Extremely noisy place, but there are some good beers waiting for you. Friendly service, prices are almost reasonable but I wouldn’t take my wife to this place. Brilliant posters on the wall.

How did I NOT rate Belgian places back in March 2013. I fully intended to miss Délirium as a whole, but 77ships insisted (I think) we meet at the Hoppy Loft and that was most definitely a win. A section / part of the Délirium building - topmost, as the name says - devoted to craft / micro beer. The atmosphere is far more relaxed than the crowded, loud, bustling regular Délirium, and as such better (now I scrolled down and notice that others are noting just that). And that’s great! The selection would cause a major seizure or at least palpitations in most beer bros. Great, rare stuff from Belgium, USA, and likely every relevant country for the scene... oh and something like Campus Premium because they had to. :D Anyway, pricey, as expected, but you’ll find stuff you’ll struggle to find elsewhere. The service was great from a guy (I forget from where, Scotland?), who mentioned that he’s quitting or something soon enough - a cool guy who really knew what he was doing and plenty enough about beer itself. Too often do we see people who don’t know jack about what they are selling in otherwise top beer places, and this definitely wasn’t the case. So a shout out to him, Ben from NZ and the guys from Iceland - there were few enough people there that we naturally got together as a bunch and started tasting / sharing / talking beer... A brilliant experience! Millevertus La Mčre Vertus was in great shape, a superb, SUPERB tripel, De Prael Herfstbok, Omnipollo Leon on tap, Rogue Double Chocolate Stout on tap, Hornbeer Grisk, Gypsy Tears (Red Wine Barrel) for my 3500, Anchor Humming Ale, Sainte Hélčne Simcoe Lager, Thornbridge Versa, Struise Motuecha, the old Green Flash West Coast IPA, De Dolle Extra Export Stout, Anderson Valley Vinter Solstice, Left Hand Milk Stout, Forestinne Mysteria, oh and some Ölvisholt Skjálfti that the Icelanders brought for the bartender who generously shared it with us.... and one I conveniently wrote the name of indecypherably for. Damn. Brilliant enough for me to miss the last public transport for the day and have to walk 4.5ish km to where I was in Ixelles through a completely frozen, snowy Bruxelles. Yes, I was a complete moron that night, a serial ticker / kid in a candy store. And it’s a fond, fond memory.

Whilst running from the Mardi Gras bullshit that is the Delirium Cafe I decided to take a quick look upstairs. Glad I did, as it was much more quiet. In fact, we were the only people there. Service-wise I had a bit of a strange experience. The guy behind the bar didn’t seem to take notice of our arrival. When I approached the bar I noticed a number of interesting looking (American) bottles, being in the mood for an IPA I asked if he had a nice Double IPA. He answered with an indifferent "no", could barely be bothered to look me in the eye and that was it. I had to actively ask for suggestions. So I got a decent American smoked porter and took a seat. About 20 minutes later he comes up to me all friendly and gives me a rather healthy pour of a nice Session IPA that just came on tap for free! Multiple personality disorder syndrome? I don’t know, but it was a nice gesture and it alleviated some of the pain of my Delirium Village visit.

Visited 10-SEP-2015, with Ulklřbben.
Quiet, not all that cosy. Tap selection is small. Bottle selection is interesting with quite some Americans but no bottle list is available.
Bottle were mainly old, so we got half Price on all. Not bad with Barley Wines and Imperial Stouts. Very helpfull staff.

The upstairs bar at Delirium is small and offers a few dozen seats. The beer selection was much smaller than the main bar and it was nearly as loud here but without the teenagers groping each other as appears normal in the main level and basement. There are much better places to drink beer in Brussels.

visited during a private Belgian Family brewers event, but bar was open for paying customers too; so still gets a rate. Sticky floors, stale beer and overly bright. Some nice breweriana on the walls. Interesting beers on draught and in bottle list; though on the pricey side, especially for the rarer bottles. Both my viven beers were on the stale side and likely hadn’t been pulled through. Not a good showing on first visit.

Located above Delirium Cafe, this place has a more craft beer focus. Hoppy loft is more my speed. It’s got a bunch of tables of dark wood and craft taps but high prices in my opinion. A surprisingly chill vibe considering the insanity below.

Spent couple of evenings there, more pleasant and peaceful than downstairs.Nice music and you can actually hear yourself talking. Bottle selection is great but they don’t have everything listed. Couple of bottles were outdated, but I guess that goes with having so much beers on the menu. Some interesting stuff on tap but I wish they rotated all the taps instead of pouring Floris and Delirium all the time. worth visiting.
