This bar opened a few months ago in a long vacant building next to Central Station. There is a nice bar with a dozen or so stools and a lot of spread out tables. The bar food is adequate but not exceptional. The service is great. The barkeeps provide a lot of information and samples of recommended beers. The selection is outstanding, though some beers are pretty pricey. All.bottles and cans are available for take-out.
Love BrewDog beers, so I loved coming here. Tis a massive place. They had a nice range of tap beers, and quiet a few bottles. Wasn't that busy when we were there which made the large space lack atmosphere, but I can imagine it filling up on a Friday/Saturday evening. Prices were ok, range of beer ok.
Huge two story bar next door to Brussels Central railway station. Upstairs there are two shuffleboard tables. The draft beer selection wasn't great, only around 5 or 6 guest beers on. There is a reasonable & varied selection of bottles available. Service is very varied according to who serves you, some staff are incredibly disinterested. Food was good. There is a lovely outside terrace which is great when the weather is nice. It's a great space but let down by the service and range. There is so much better in Brussels, and I'm saying this as a Brewdog fanboy
So, we weren't really planning of committing sacrilege by going to Brewdog in Brussels, however, their outside seating and extreme proximity to Central was just too tempting. To relax in the afternoon sun on a surprisingly sunny spring day, this is perfect. Beer selection was obviously focused on Brewdog, as is the case with all Brewdog bars. There were a few guest taps including smaller Belgian breweries. This bar feels very similar to the other newish Brewdog locations, same decor, similar food options, similar beer choices, same branding, so all in all not too original. However, if you are looking for a quick beer near Central or if you want to relax for a while in an atypically large beer bar, definitely give it a try.

We visited here Saturday 10th March 2018, the we being me, Barry, Dad and Scott. It is handily placed near the central railway station and opposite where the buses pull up.
Inside it is the usual Brewdog look, no thinking about it perhaps it is a bit smarter. It is a pretty big Brewdog with a nice upstairs as well. The usual large Brewdog beer display sits behind and above the bar. There are some fridges with beers off to the left. There is quite a lot of seating in this place, it is light and airy and feels very spacious.
Beer choice considering there were supposedly 30 taps (although I note on here it states 40) was a bit disappointing. Other than than the usual Brewdog core beers, a few specials the guests were limited to perhaps just 5-6 easily obtainable Belgian beers. Unsurprisingly for a Brewdog this ended up as the most expensive round by some margin during this Brussels trip. Service was friendly enough but I sensed the person a pleasant young female (American?) serving us was not so knowledgeable on beer. Its ok.
Definitely the worst bar ever visited in the whole world. Not only was the ambiance cold and the selection of beers poor, not only did we have to wait that much at the bar while it wasn't that busy, not only did a simple burger with fries cost 15 euros, but above all when I dared to ask the waiter why they changed my brioche burger bun without asking me first, he responded obviously annoyed "It's a bread, man, come on!", he then threw the cutlery in the case and he left with the burger by telling me to ask for my money back at the bar!
Perfect location next to the station. Nice interior, but then all the positive has been said I guess.
Service is poor. They mumble, don't do dutch (ok this is getting more typical in Brussels, but make sure your English or French is understandable in loud places) and were not at all interested. On paper they had a nice selection, yet my first 3 orders were out of stock. Nor did they have a tasting flight as was promoted. Prices were therefor too high for me (looking at quality of service).
Good location for travelers and not much more. Very overpriced. Many house name beers at prices much higher than usual. Poor and expensive selection for a craft beer bar in Brussels. Service poor, slow and mostly uninterested. The only punk think about the place is the desire to trash it that is left on the clients. Have been several times over the years and the decline is apparent. Will not return. Better to order breeding beers online.
Overpriced, understocked and understaffed. Go to Moeder Lambic, at least there's a good range and nice staff. Couldn't order a tasting flight on a Tuesday night because "they didn't have glasses"? Had to wait 5-10 min at the bar even though it wasn't busy. First 2 beers were out of stock (and on the board). Settled for 25cl of IPA for 5€.... Drink Belgian beer at any bar nearby if you have the option, at least it would be reasonably priced.
