I must have walked past this place a half dozen times, and it was only on the last night in Brussels, while out getting candy and souvenirs and all that stuff, that I saw it was a brewery. Itís packed in with all of the other restaurants and bars, so itís easy to ignore while walking around. Well, the beer isnít so great - mediocre recipes, but at least the presentation was nice, although a little gimmicky given the location. A beer sampler (about 5-6oz each of three) came with a cheese, meat and cracker plate. Rock on. Like I said, beer quality was lacking, but if youíre there in the Grote Markt you might as well drop in and try them.

Oh lordy. What a place. Actually the place itself isnít that bad and the server wasnít that bad even though we were ragging on his beer pretty harshly. Itís right in the Grote Markt so itís kind of a no brainer to stop in at the brewery in the middle of the scenic old buildings but seriously the beer was god awful. Writing this rating is bringing back painful memories. We sat at a long table near the door and actually got half way decent service, a surprise for a Belgian stop. We ordered all the house beer which was luckily only four beers and there were conveniently four of us. Most of my time was spent laughing at our unfortunate situation. We only stuck around long enough to try all the beers and left for greener pastures. If they have good guest beers I could be convinced to come back. Until such a time Iíll continue to laugh at the fact that this is in my 10 worst breweries of all time list.
Located right in the Grote Markt, so itís a pretty easy place to get to. Inside and the decor are pretty nice, as you might expect. Service was average. The house beers here are truly atrocious. Only four on tap and none of them were remotely drinkable.
Forgettable brewpub in central Brussels. Beers are poorly brewed. The place was also empty on our visit and the guy at the bar was quite rude. Also very pricey to try the beers. Best to avoid unless you really want a few ticks.
(Visited 12/2011): Located in the Grote Markt, Les Brasseurs is a touristy brewpub right in the thick of everything.
The inside is narrow with 2 levels and the bar along the right side. Bright red walls, disco balls and the brewing equipment right near the entrance.
Les Brasseurs has 4 beers on draught, including a Blonde, Amber, Tripel and Dark Beer on our visit. The ones we tried were fairly average. They have 40-50 bottled beers as well.
Service was decent on a relatively slow early evening.
Food at Les Brasseurs included sandwiches which were on the bar food scale quality wise.
Overall this place may be worth a stop in passing but there are better places nearby.
Their own four beers can be served from a sample tray with each sample containing 120ml (be sure to ask for the tray) for 8EUR. Apart from the house beers there were about 25 bottles in addition to about 6-7 draught beers listed on the menu. Friendly service when we visited the place about noon on a Saturday. Splendid location at one of the corners of the Grand-Place (visited 7th May 2011).
Very noise, live music/troubadour that was played at too high a volume. Very expensive stuff. Beer sample trey with 4 beers as 12 cl each was 8 Euro. Did get to meet the brewer Philippe earlier the same day that was talking about some interesting changes he hope to infer. Service was so so, with those prices I will not go back, unless if to chat with the brewer again.
