Ambiance - Smaller place with a trappist-ish focus. Felt much cozier than the big café. Service - Sloppy but very friendly. Selection - I was happy to have some trappists on tap. Food - Did not eat. Value - Decent. Additional comments - None!
Quite big place that manage to keep a rather relaxed atmosphere, much quitter and cozier than Delirium café above. Great selection of bottle beer and the staff seems to know their beer, at least I got some good recommendation and even a suggestion for the order to taste them. I think this place is actually the true spirit of Delirium Café, as the café at ground floor is more typical for tourists and party crew and the Hop loft is a bit more hipster style.
What to say about this place, it was certainly quieter, in the respect of being less packed, but not in the lairy manner of the Customers. This seemed to be driven by the amount of spirits the bar seemed to dish out, there seemed to be total mayhem going on . Getting served proved to be totally impossible and getting hold of a beer menu, which all seemed to have been collected up even more difficult. Being totally ignored by the staff didn’t help, there seems to be an ageist thing going on. This is one place we will not be returning to the Cafe and Hoploft are far superior.
Part of the madness that is Delirium in Brussels though this section is a bit more relaxed with a focus on trappist/abbey beers. Staff was nice and it is easy to start chatting with other customers.

Somewhat typical Delirium... Decent selection. Prices and service are ok. Most beers a beer nerd knows, not saying you can’t enjoy a good beer twice! But with the hoppy loft this close by, the choice is easy.
