Busy, bustling, noisy bar, frequented seemingly by lots of locals. Solid taplist, without any real big hitters, but enough to go at. Service was slow, though. Had a bretted Troubadour on tap, which was great. Earwigged a conversation (couldn’t help but not, actually) on the next table which was alarming and hilarious in equal measure! Anyway, a place I’d visit again, maybe at a quieter time.

Seems like a place a lot of fashionable, young locals visit. Modern, but inviting decoration. Nothing too interesting on tap, but Belgian favorites. Perhaps not for the tick-hunter, but a nice enough place to have a beer or two with friends. Decent pricing.

A nice place tucked in central Brussels to grab a craft Belgian beer or two. There are a few sausages and cheeses to chose from as beverage accompaniments. Service is good in this establishment where many locals seem to frequent.

You almost can’t go wrong in Belgium with beer bars. Lots of great stuff on tap. Nice service. And the restaurant attached to this place serves awesome spaghetti.

A bit away from the strict touristy centre, near St. Catherine church. A more traditional feel to the place, altough the service and especially selection didn’t cut it for me. Not a bad place, but not something extra either.

Good place to get some good beers in a nice setting and a bit off the tourist tracks. Service was friendly and quick, did not have food though. Prices are Brussels-like so expect a bit higher ones. Overall a good place and worth the visit.

Nice place in the center of Brussels. Vintage interior. Nice beer list with the classics but also some rare Belgian beers. A large choice of cold cheeses and meat. Friendly staff. Good bar!

We actually came here based on Lydie’s recommendation earlier that day while at 3 fonteinen. The place was bustling with a mostly-brussels crowd. The bar and small dining room are separated; the full beer list is only available at the bar, while food can only be ordered in the dining room. The tap and bottle list were fairly small, but priced favorably; westy blonde and abt were available for 7 and 9 euro respectively, while I drank three Jambe de Bois which totaled 9 euro. The spaghetti focus is a little goofy, but it was delicious. In the heart of the centre, Monk deserves a look if moeder lambic fontainas is on the menu.
