“Good website/place for all your Corse products in Belgium. All their products can be found @LeMaquis (Corse bar in Brussels center).“

“One of the newer players in Brussels as far as craft beer pubs are concerned and already a fixture, located at walking distance from Moeder Lambic Original in Saint-Gilles. Relaxed atmosphere, the people sitting at the tables outside were ordering food from an African restaurant across the street, others were watching a football game on a television screen at the back of the pub. Friendly and quick service, with a series of fridges at the back displaying their extensive collection of craft beers, with some of them made by breweries hitherto unknown to me, but the emphasis is on Belgian craft including lambics, of course. Had a Kernel IPA and a Moersleutel stout here and generally enjoyed the place a lot. I will certainly go back – always in combination with a visit to Moeder Lambic Original, how convenient can you get when wanting to drink good craft beer in Brussels…“

“There are places you like. There are places you always feel welcome and this brewpub with a special atmosphere is certainly one of those. This brewery has quickly become earned a great reputation in the city. They produce loads of really good double IPAs, sours and more. Inside it has a cool overall woody, warm atmosphere, with lots of recycled pallets in use, the bar is central with the brewing equipment behind that, and random barrels around the room, ageing beers. It's pretty cheap for what you get in return too! I just hope they stay as authentic as they are now. It's efinitely one of the best breweries in the country (IMO).“

“Basically a brewery that is open for off sales. The "shop" area is more the front of the Warehouse / brewery. Not that you need to make a place look pretty when the beer is this good. Founded and run in 2014 by two passionate young entrepreneurs. They brew unique and surprising authentic beers. Taste, authenticity and humour are at the rendezvous.“

“Another iconic small Brussels place, it can be hard to get a table here since it is usually very busy and very full. Good selection of local craft and traditional Belgian beers but the main attraction is definitely the food! Delicious traditional dishes on the menu, make sure you have a reservation...“

“Iconic place in Brussels, depending on how busy it is card payments are accepted for the bar, there is a small shop for take-away and you usually have to pay by card there. Availability of the bottles will vary depending on the day, how busy it is and other factors so keep coming back. Nice tour to explore the brewery, another Brussels must-see!“

“A hip, modern place right off the canal towards Molenbeek. A bar and bottle fridges in front, and a seating area with brick walls, barrels and open view to the brewing facilities in the back. Tap list with regulars, collabs and experimental brews. Friendly service.“

“Nice, quiet place just up the hill from Grand Place offering a well curated beer list, with taps, drafts and bottles. Fairly modest, with small tables and stools at the bar, as well as room for outdoor seating. Knowledgeable and service minded staff.“

Malt Attacks (Beer Store)
“A stroll out of the city centre towards Sait Gilles, not far from Garde du Midi, takes you to this fairly small but well stocked bottle outlet. International selection of beers sorted by style, with wild and spontaneous brews in the back. A couple of fridges as well. A very nice alternative to the downtown shops, when looking for specific or the not so obvious bottles. Nice service and pricing.“

“Small place, just a couple of minutes off the Grand Place. Small tables and a bar for all the people waiting, and even some outdoor seating for those days the weather allows for it. Authentic Belgian interior, and tasty modern takes on authentic Belgian cuisine. Nice selection of food friendly beers, both on bottles and tap. Decent service, from people who obviously knows their stuff.“

“Ok, so when in Brussels, this is an no brainer. And not just because it’s Cantillon, it’s really a nice place as well. A bit out from the city centre, not too far from the Gare du Midi, and well within walking distance. The building itself looks inconspicuous and is easily missed despite the sign over the doors. Inside you walk into the shop area, where you’ll no doubt stock up on merch and bottles, and here’s also where the tours start. Take the tour, no matter if it’s on your own or with a guide. Afterwards the bar in the back is well worth a visit to plunge through some of the bottles or taps available. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, decent pricing, authentic and brilliant!“

GIST (Bar)
“Un superbe bar à bières qui évoque les stam cafés bruxellois typiques, avec un peu plus de lumière. Une quinzaine de bières au fût, une trentaine à la carte. Le service est super sympa, le patron connaisseur et de bon conseil et les prix raisonnables. Terrible adresse à Bruxelles pour les amateurs de bières.“

“Good vibe to the bar, great choices of beer. Staff was brussel-friendly, could help to make a good choice of beer. Prices were fully acceptable. Place got pretty packed though.“

“I visited this place two years ago but apparently forgot to rate it, so here we go: a kind of dive bar in a centuries old cellar in the city of Brussels, with a Celtic theme, wooden benches and so on. Very crowded and loud at the time I visited it (on a Saturday evening) with lots of young folk, too much so for me actually, but the beer list was kind of interesting, with local craft beers from Brussels breweries as well as lambics, and of course a lot of Belgian classics. Not sure how this place has evolved since then, maybe I should pay it another visit to find out.“

“Came to listen to some Jazz (Frank Sinatra imitation band). The beer selection has 17 Belgian biers. The servos was good but they were under staffed. Overall nice evening.“

“Very spacious open bar, where one feels a bit lost... a typical Brewdog selection on with a few Belgian beers available you usually do not see in other Brewdog bars. Service was slow and looked bored. Had no food as we were only travelling through. Beer was standard.“

“A lovely place very close to Cantillon serving well-crafted beers and a few snack options: cheese, sausage, and a pizza. The service is pretty good but they do enjoy talking to each other at times while they ignore the patrons, but they do eventually get back to you the patron. The place is a bit rustic but that creates an awesome feel; they are keen on using wooden pallets for decoration and function.“

“Decent little pub, we ended up here because the Poechenellekelder was slightly over crowded and my other half was desperate for a sit down and a drink. Good selection of beers and ambiance, not quite as impressive as 'that pub opposite', but still better than most the pubs in my hometown in the UK!“

“Visited a few years ago now, i need to review again properly as it was absolutely heaving when we visited so i couldn't really appreciate the decor or ambience. We had to grab a drink and sit outside. From what i did see this looks a fabulous place, and a superb selection of beer. We sat outside and watched hoards of tourists take selfies in front of the Manneken Pis.“

“A great place on the Brussels scene, opened since late 2018. Just off the Grande Place in an old fish shop with art nouveau features in a UNESCO designated building. Choose a style (tripel, saison, porter etc) and a glass is poured, all from Belgian micros, either a 33cl bottle or a pour from something larger. Good selection, friendly service and a decent price for the location. A place that deserves to thrive“

“Visited on 10th January 2020, and a few times over the past few years. An established venue close to the Bourse and not far from the Grand Place/Grote Markt. Convivial and friendly bar in a long, narrow, split-level pub. An overhead blackboard sorts beers by colour and taste, handy when the bar is busy, although of course a proper beer menu is available. The range is, of course, not limited to lambic; a diverse selection is offered from breweries as local and as small as the Nanobrasserie L’Ermitage. The decor and lighting lend themselves to a relaxed feel whether you are in a group or alone, at the bar or at a table. Music volume kept at a level that affords civilised conversation to buzz just above it. Give it a go!“

“Visited on 10th January 2020 and twice before. Friendly vibrantly ambient taproom in the backstreets close to Lemonnier metro and not all that far from Brussels Midi/Zuid. A mostly young crowd gather here of an evening to sup the tasty range of beers which are served in a number of sizes down to taster volumes. Knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic staff with a great sense of humour. English spoken, not unexpectedly. Bar food/snacks include pizza and sausages. Well worth a visit, with plenty of time to enjoy the beers.“

“New place just round the corner from Malt Attacks. 6 or so of their own beers, with a further 10 or so guests. One cask pump. Fairly smart place with a spiral staircase up to further seating. Potential to sit on the street in warmer weather by way of large patio doors. Friendly enough staff, although on our visit on a quiet night we were somewhat rushed while they closed up shop way earlier than advertised. Decent, simple pizza. Good beer. Will re-visit.“

“One of the most popular bars in the craft beer community. Mainly because of their good bottle list of lambics and sours. Great selection of beers, mainly Belgian with some foreign ones as well. This place can get very crowdy and staff can be very arrogant at times.“

“Extremely close to Cantillon and thus perhaps worth a visit for a little variety. 10-12 taps, with flights of 4 x 12.5cl for €7, a good deal indeed. You can also order single 12.5cl pours for €2 or less. Beer quality is quite good, especially their jasmine pale ale. Worth a visit before or after your train’s arrival/departure since it’s so close to Midi.“

“Very close to Moeder Lambic (and many other places), with a pretty impressive lambic list. It’s primarily a restaurant, so if you’re hunting lambics specially, better go to Moeder or other nearby places; but if you’re looking for dinner, and want some good lambics to go along with it, this might be a good spot.“
