Situated up the stairs from the main Cafe bar this large, one roomed bar had a little more space. It was still warm with no real air flow to cool it down.
Beer range was a little more interesting with Danish, Japanese and Belgian beer on tap and a load of bottles from around the world. It was a little quieter than downstairs and a nicer atmosphere.
Worth a look as will pick up some interesting beers here.

Service depends hugely on the bartender. Don’t go on tuesdays (and wednesdays), because then you get an incompetent bartender. However, if you on on thursd/frid/sat, it will be a bit more crowded, but the service will be lots better. The female bartender then has a great knowledge of the beers served and is always very friendly.
Selection is quite nice, always some new foreign beers on tap.
It’s a lot more quiet in there then the downstairs delirium cafe.
Prices are high (9,9 euro for a Hel en Verdoemnis), but when you drink on tap, it’s ok. 3 tasters for 6 euro.
Beer geeks should for sure go over there and have a look ;)
TO EVERYONE VISITING BRUSSELS, give me a heads up, I’d love to trade/share some bottles!

Visited on several occasions 2013-14. Many times the near-deserted 2nd story connaisseur’s option when the adolescent inferno outside & below just isn’t funny anymore, 19 year old from Mexico and Korea sipping Westmalle from a 1,5 liter chalice. Quickly rotating taps from small, never heard of, or hard to otherwise get in BE breweries. Service ranges from knowledgeable and cool to just passing by - tattooed French aupair - just doing service at the bar until a spot at an Irish pub opens up. Above average prices especially for bottles which are then sold off once past exp. date. Varying health on taps... Basically: Infinite potential curated at a semi-dank level, like much in surrealist/jem’enfoutist Brussels.

This place is marginally better than the total chaos death and destruction that reign below. The air is a bit more breathable, the selection has a few more interesting choices on it, the service doesn’t seem quite as impatient. Still the fact that it’s in the same building is a bit too much for me, it’s cramped and dirty and just generally not very enjoyable. You can have some good beer here though.

The whole place (including the Café and cellar) is very touristy. In the Loft you have to be lucky: with regular guests it’s a nice place, but when a group of tourists enters it’s a whole other story (and since it’s mentioned on tourist maps, I think this happens quite often).
Aside the ambiance and the clientele, the place is quite good. The beer selection isn’t as extensive as downstairs (you can also get your beer there and take it up though), but they have some good Belgian beers and surprising micro-brews, even on tap. Service was a little less: I think the bartender knew a lot about beer, but he was reluctant to share his knowledge or give some good advice. Luckily, they have a great deal: you can order three taster glasses (10cl) of the beers on tap for 6 euro. We ordered six different beers and were happily surprised.
So, all in all, we had a great time and I would come back, but it’s not the ideal place to taste and enjoy your beers in peace.

Non si può andare a Bruxelles senza visitare questo locale storico. A due piani. Quello superiore ha una grandissima scelta di birre alla spina, a rotazione. Nel piano di sotto, invece, si possono trovare moltissime birre in bottiglia. Si possono trovare anche i formaggi delle grandi abazie trappiste, da degustare insieme alle birre. E’ molto rumoroso (sicuramente non dovete andarci se cercate un po’ di quiete) e il servizio non è dei migliori. Il personale è molto veloce, ma non sta lì a spiegarti le caratteristiche delle birre. Nel listino trovi solo i nomi delle birre e la graduazione, ma niente di più. Contando che da lì passano moltissime birre e che non si possono conoscerle tutte, almeno potevano scrivere qualche informazione di più sul listino. In ogni caso, è sempre un ottimo bar.

Top floor under the roof in the Delirium building. Could have been cozy, but its to hot, to crowded, to noisy at our 2 visits to really enjoy. Some good, some not so good beer on tap. A long bottle list aswell, but i didnt venture into that. Service was little lacking, at one point he left the bar for most of 10 minutes, and at another was drinking shots with friends instead of serving customer. Come early, or maybe very late if you wanna tick the beers here.

very calm, everywhere its crowded, here we’re alone? and they have the best beers here? weird, but hey, id rather have it like this ! cool place to hang out, nice bartender,... the american ’rarities’ are cheaper than expected, the belgians are a lot more expensive than usual.. toerists? prob. .. but its their good right, they gotta eat too :)
Rerate after several visits . Service is always nice and passioned , selection seems to be way smaller , nut still insane . 50 % off at 2 pages , making several us beers cheaper than local retail prices . Thats just insane . Once tasted a sink the bismark for free , today i got a free beer upon purchasing 4 bottles to take out . Hard to admit , that besides my hate for the other drlirium pubs ( service is worst than you can imagine ) this is one of the best pubs in Belgium .

Went on a saturday, was supposed to be more quiet than downstairs but there were lots of young and loud people there. The bartenders did not contribute by turning up the music as the shouting increased. Guess a saturday is the wrong day to go there...
Having an ignorant bartender when ordering did not contribute either, The selection of international beers was quite good.
