Had dinner and beers here. Small place, very warm. Great vintage list, though pricy. Enjoyed a Rodenbach Alexander and a Westy red cap. The bolognese with Chimay-based sauce was excellent. Owner was overrun and he kept forgetting to bring our bill for about 35 mintues. When he finally did, he brought us each a free draught beer for our patience. Definitely worth a stop.

Revisit March 2011: Maybe not the best day to visit. Service was not too good. Selection seems not to be as interesting as earlier. Still a nice place to visit, but other places in Bruxelles seems more obvious to go to first.
Original rate May 2004:
This was a really gem. The Vintage beerlist is out of this world. Bellevue Selection Lambic (14€), De Dolle Speciaal Brouwsel 20 (18€) (I bought those 2) and many others at quite resonable prices IMO. Didn’t try some of the excellent food myself, but the places was packed with people, that ate. This is an absolutely must for any beerlover visiting Brussels.

Le Bier Circus is one of the great beer bars in Belgium, and a must visit when in Brussels. Only a 5-10 minute walk from the Grand Place, it's located on a relatively non-descript street. Inside, it has a front main/bar area with 2 smaller rooms in the back. The decor is nice with beer memorabilia and large murals of Belgian comic strip characters. The bottled beer list is very good. But, the real gem is the Vintage beer list, which includes old geuzes, Westvleteren 12's, Alexanders, etc. I had a '94 Vander Linden Frambozenbier (on the owners recommendation) that was outstanding. This place is run by people who are truly passionate about beer. I asked about some white beers, and was given a blanche from Ellezelloise that I'd never seen before (not even at the better stores in town- Beer Mania and Bier Tempel). It was one of the best white beers I've had w/ the smell almost being better than the taste. The food is also very good at Le Bier Circus. However, there is some unfortunate news, as this beer institution is in danger because of a new landlord situation. Please help out Le Bier Circus and sign the petition at their website. This place is a real treat, and it would be a shame if something happened.

Well, this place consumed several nights of our trip in May of 2003. The beer selection was incredible. Fortunately, I found out beforehand that they had a vintage list that was not handed out with the standard list. That made it even better. I had several awesome beers but the one liked best came with the best meal I had there - steak with shallots et faro. Had the 94 Fantome Automne. That is worth the trip to that place alone. The Flemish Beef(stoofvles) with Westmalle was awesome. The Chimay choclate mousse was awesome as well as the spaghetti bolognaise. The bar itself is small with many old beer signs and glasses adorning the walls. Beer is served in each brewery's glass when available, otherwise still served with proper glassware. The bartender (owner?) was very friendly even when we saw him at another beerpub before Bier Circus opened. Can't wait to return!
