Nice place but with a messy menu (lots of spelling mistakes, sometime translated in English, sometimes not. also ’geuze’ without the brewer mentioned. stuff like that. funny). Very friendly hard working staff. Simple but affordable and good food. Many foreignors visiting. The beers weren’t exceptional but no real brewing mistakes and more German than Belgian. I would certainly revisit.
(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.
Not a huge selection - 4 of their beers, and a few bottles. In the morning we were the only ones, and we got a fair exposition of what was going on. Like the tripel was not finished yet. Descriptions of the biers. In the afternoon it was busy, but we talked them into a plate that required a departure from the menu. It is a bit expensive, but the location is that. Very good atmosphere. The music started setting up as we were leaving tonight.
This place is pretty interesting, in amongst the bar are various pieces of brewing kit where they make their own beer. The home brew is available in tasters or by the glass, but sometimes this runs out, when we turned up they had a blonde and a tripel, but switched a kriek for the dubbel which had sold out.
The atmosphere is quite cramped and very smokey, the prices are quite high (it is on Grande Place after all) but worth a try just for the novelty of the home brews. Probably I would only stay for a home brew then go elsewhere.
