Definitely more mellow than its downstairs counterpart. Large tap selection, and one of the few places in all of Belgium where you can get samplers. On the other end of the scale, you can also get a 3 liter glass of beer. yes, someone ordered one while I was there. Staff is friendly and efficient.

Visited October 2012.

I dont understand why this is a separate place. Is it a different company? What ever. In terms of beer selection I think it’s somewhat uninteresting compared to the ground floor and the basement bars. I mean on the ground floor you can have Delirum Cactus. In the basement you can have Tilquin Faro. Up here you get a bunch of English and American beers. Meh. The upside is that it’s quieter up here. Drunks, like zombies, can’t climb stairs, so if you want to get away from it all while at the most touristy beer destination in the country you can grab a good beer and climb a flight of stairs and relax. While relaxing and sipping your beer you can check out the decorations which consist of signs from breweries that don’t exist anymore. I found a couple of lambic producers that I had never heard of before, which is kind of fun. There was also a guy in a bright pink bootlegged shirt selling something. It’s a nice place but get your beer downstairs and bring it upstairs.

The newish upstairs bar at Delirium is better lit, more open, less claustrophobic and less stinky than downstairs. Still you have to navigate the clog of sidewalk diners just to reach this overcrowded, expensive beer tourist trap. That said, the tap list was eclectic, including special taps from De Ranke and Blaugies, only both were in terrible shape. The bartender curled his face when we asked for a taste of something rather than buying an entire glass blind. I don’t see the appeal, but Delirium has always underdelivered IMO, and it no longer should be considered a premier beer destination. Your time in Brussels is better spent elsewhere.

A bit more relaxed than the lower levels of Delirium and a much different selection. More of a focus on American and other non-Belgian European beers. A decent selection of bottles following a similar trend. A nice place to go if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the bar.

It is a better atmosphere than the bar below, although I didn’t really find anything of interest when I popped by. I’m not really looking to drink imported, stale American beers at crazy prices either. I’d say the bar is great for local folk looking at trying something different.

More relaxed, modern and civilized than the downstairs, noisy Delirium, the loft must be exactly what a Belgian beer geek longed for his country to have - a great access to imports. As a non-Belgian, the selection of draughts from the USA, Italy, Denmark and what not is still interesting, but when you’re in Belgium, you’re mostly there to try Belgian beers. Therefore, upstairs is a nice break from downstairs’ craziness, but not quite as interesting as the more Belgium-focused selection that you find at a place like Moeder Fontainas. The expensive price tags also contribute to making one leave quickly.

To echo previous comments, this upstairs section of Delirium is a bit more sedate than its downstairs counterpart, with lots of seating, a decent draft list and a large selection of bottles. This is Delirium, though, so even if this section ’more sedate’ it is still pretty raucous and, on a busy evening, finding a seat can be challenging. By around 2am the place will clear out a bit, so from then until 4am you should be able to really relax. (And before 8pm or so it isn’t too busy, either.) The value is pretty good for most of the beers, and there really are some rarities in the fridge. I’d say this is one of (if not the best) place in Belgium to find a range of beers that includes non-Belgian options. The evening crowd is quite young and lively (I thiink everyong I saw was under 30) so for a quiet experience get there early. Certainly worth a visit.

I would question if this place has right to exist separately from the one downstairs... This is the bar for import beers mainly; on tap there may be something interesting; also large choice of bottles, but with crazy price. Less noisy and busy than downstairs, I would recommend taking some beers from downstairs and moving upstairs to enjoy them.

Great place. Very chill when the downstairs is load and obnoxious. Great beers on tap, amazing but pricy selection of bottles, plus you can bring stuff up from downstairs. 2 Euro tasters are a great deal. Love it. Service can vary wildly from very sympathetic to somewhat surly.

Definitely a place geared towards Belgian beer geeks instead of visitors. Few Belgians on offer. Plenty of stuff from the likes of Mikkeller and some of the bigger US players. There was a Siren beer on draft which was sort of cool. Prices can be ridiculous, but there were some deals sprinkled in there. For instance, the Canitillon and 3F stuff on offer was much cheaper than what Moeder Lambic was trying to fleece customers for. Overall, not an essential stop for visitors to Belgium.
