  • Amazing experience! Several beers to taste. A nice environment, with good music. Mandatory stop for all the travelers!  more »
  • Best craft beer tap room in Brussels. Evenings - always crowded, may be COVID certificates check up makes it worse, but guess in summer time it is always packed. We tried only tap beers, mostly IPAs....  more »
  • A must see for any beer drinker. This place is of course very tourist heavy and you will hear everyone speaking English so if you were hoping for an immersive local cultural experience this is not the place. What it does offer is a huge beer list. Ask for the full menu as the ones on the bar are only a very small portion of what is available. There are several floors each with their own vibe. Try the lower level for a cozy and quiet place to enjoy a chat and unwind from the packed streets outside.
  • Really cool place for beer lovers. You easily get into acquaintance with other guests from all over the world. Three floors, each with different atmosphere and music. You can easily spend here 4-5 hours, but a one-glass jump is possible, since you get your beer almost immediately: the barmen are really fast (if you are good enough in making yourself the way to make the order — the place is always crowded). What isn’t so good? The regular lack of snacks. You have ‘em on the card, but they are always out of stock. No cheese, no sausages, no chips. Which is really bothering, ‘cause sometimes hunger makes you leave before you are fully satisfied.
