A la Bécasse specialises in faro and lambic blends although it has quite a wide range of the usual Belgian bottles too. They also serve snacks and traditional Belgian bar food such as spaghetti Bolognese, lasagne, croques and salads.
It’s a nice place, reminiscent of a small German beer hall, with light wood panelled walls and a large bricked up fireplace at one end of the room. At the other end is the bar, with its highly polished copper and brass barrel and a woodcock (bécasse) perched atop. The blue and white earthenware jugs in which the lambic is served are hung behind the bar.
There’s a large room upstairs and outside there’s a tiled drinking corridor with an old fireplace, although it’s open to the elements.

Nice woody interiors. Quite cold ambiance, silent place with the owner remaining behind the clerk and not chatting with customers. Beer selection is ok. Probably the most interesting thing are the traditional ceramic pots they serve lamibc from. Food selection is poor and expensive. I came here upon suggestion from an experienced beer traveller but founf the place very disappointing. Not worth a second visit to me.

A hidden and nice looking pub/restaurant close to the Grand Place. The beer menu is solid; not the biggest but with a high quality. The atmosphere is pretty quiet and no rush in early afternoon. The food is also great.

Nestled in a tiny alley off one of the main pedestrians streets. Bar is said to be at least a hundred years old, and indeed, the feeling inside is of the typical Belgian bar atmosphere with no tourists in sight.
Service was lousy, typical for Brussels. Beer selection is nothing special with most of the beers being the typical bigger names from Belgium with prices being on the up side. The only point to go there is to try their Faro and maybe enjoy the quietness of the place.
Did not eat there, but the food menu is typical, and overpriced.

One of my favorite bars in Brussels.
The fantastic brass barrel on the bar, jugs of lambic on every table. This is a wonderful place to drink in, it is peaceful even when busy, people respect their beer that come in here. A true classic in my opinion, I couldn’t visit Brussels without walking down the alley to this bar.
The service has always been fine, as has been the quality of the beers, there are livelier places to drink in Brussels, but this is what the Brussels beer scene is really all about. Miss it at your peril!

Nice joint. Though the menu is a bit limited, they serve hearty (if not exactly cheap) food and have one or two beers you can’t get elsewhere. A nice lunch option on a Sunday.

This is one of those very tricky to find places that when you stumble upon it you realise that actually the signs are there and you should have found it before now. We visited here on Friday 16th December 2011, i’ve realised that the place existed before but somehow walked past scratching my head, this time with the aid of ’Around Brussels in 80 Beers’ It was located quite swiftly & easily. When we arrived it was fairly quiet, but it slowly became a little busier as we merrily tucked into our Spaghetti’s. Loz had the house special, I had cheese and ham they were absolutely fine but I rather chuckled and liked the fact that the house version was differentiated only by the addition of some tinned peas, still it was reasonably priced, warm and filling, and Loz loves peas. I had the Timmermans Lambic Doux a beer that I’d never had before and whilst a tad on the sweet side it slipped down a treat. The wood pannelling, the waitors aprons, the peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of the world outside are all good reasons to come here and I would thoroughly recomend popping in here to anyone in the area. Btw there is a decent little vinyl shop around the corner next to Cirio that is worth a gander.
