Bilbao, Spain

In Bilbao there are not residents, there are txikiteros. Txikiteros are names given to those who drink txikitos, small glasses of wine served in the bars.

Best Belgian Beer Bars in Brussels
29.03.2024

Brussels is all about multiculturalism, comics, mussels and fries, chocolate and, above all, a huge culture of all things beer.

The Belgians are true masters of the subject and have a long history and experience in creating fantastic beers of all kinds. Trying a few craft beers is as much a must as visiting the Grand Place.

That's why you need a guide to the best bars and taverns where you can enjoy the wide and tasty variety of local, national and international craft beers.

 

Best Belgian beer bars and craft beers in Brussels

Delirium Café

Imp. de la Fidélité 4

Let's start with the main course, the most popular and the one that is most recognised both within the city's borders and beyond; Delirium Café. The reason for its popularity is none other than its wide variety.

But when we say wide variety, we mean that it is the establishment that offers the most beers in the world; more than two thousand types. With beers of more than 60 nationalities, the most complicated task is choosing which ones to try.

Their great variety doesn't make them forget their origins and they also have a fantastic menu of local craft beers that should be on your to-do list.

By the way, the bar has a little brother, Little Delirium, located at 9 Rue du Marché aux Fromages, and is equally recommended for the same reasons you should visit the big brother.

 

Beer Capital Brussels

Bd Anspach 89

Just a stone's throw from the Brussels Stock Exchange and on one of the most charming boulevards in the Belgian capital, we find a bar that offers just what it promises: the beer capital.

And this is where it seems that all the varieties you can imagine come together. A place with several televisions that usually have some sport on, but the best thing of all is the service. The waiters are very friendly, always ready to give you the perfect advice on choosing the right beer for you.

 

Moeder Lambic Fontainas

Pl. Fontainas 8

If you didn't have Place Fontainas on your route through Brussels, here's a very good reason to add it to your itinerary. This is the place to breathe and live beer. They offer an incredible variety of Belgian and Brussels craft beers, of which they are specialists. The perfect place for those who really want to taste the local flavour.

 

Brasserie de la Senne

Anna Bochdreef 19/21

This brewery is a little further away from the more touristy central area, although it is only 25 minutes away by public transport heading north. Named after the Senne, the river that runs through the city.

Its charm lies in many aspects, starting with its industrial and rustic aspect at the same time, that makes it look more like a brewery than a tavern. There is plenty of space to enjoy one of the many beers, most of which are on tap.

A wide variety of craft beers, ranging from IPAs to lagers, adapted to the time of year, the weather and the consumer's taste. You can also order a snack and, if you want to take home a souvenir, stop by their shop.

Beer Mania

Chau. de Wavre 174/176

Shop, bar, restaurant, call it what you will, but a visit to their premises is almost a must. In the southern part of the city centre, almost in the Ixelles area, real beer freaks will enjoy themselves like children.

Friendly owner with a seemingly infinite beer knowledge, more than 400 types of beer, and a cosy and relaxed atmosphere, especially the terrace at the back. Can you buy some for your room? Of course, and if you tell them what you like, they'll recommend the perfect flavour for you.

 

Au Vieux Saint Antoine

Rue du Marché au Charbon Kolenmarkt 25

Right in the centre of Brussels, this bar acts as an oasis in the middle of a long day of sightseeing. Step into this time capsule as soon as you step inside.

The décor and ambience transport you back to the Belle Époque, where you'll feel like you're walking through an Art Deco museum. And the beers? On a par with its location and décor. That's more than enough reason to dedicate a whole afternoon to it.

 

Poechenellekelder

Rue du Chêne 5

As difficult to pronounce as it is irresistible to visit. This pub hides an incredible decoration, full of details, an attentive, friendly and friendly staff and a great selection of craft beers.

Whatever your route to Brussels, you're sure to pass by the Manneken Pis, right? Well, right after taking a couple of photos of the statue that is the symbol of the city, you should stop by this bar, which is located just a few seconds away on foot. It's as much a must-see as the famous pissing boy.

 

En Stoemelings

Rue Dieudonné Lefèvre 37

OK, we've gone a bit overboard with the distance. Stoemelings may not be next to the Royal Galleries Saint Hubert, but it is only 25 minutes from the Grand Place by public transport.

Is it worth a visit? Well, let us ask you first, are you a true beer lover and would you be willing to visit a brewery of the city's most artisanal beer?

You've already answered the question for yourself. Their small tavern in the big brewery will make you feel in a cosy place in the middle of so many barrels and tanks of beer. Great staff and the best selection of beers.

 

BBP Dansaert

Rue Antoine Dansaert 188

Surely you want to be part of this project; Brussels Beer Project, or BBP, is a brewery that aims to give a new approach and ideas to the world of brewing, bringing new names and flavours.

It is certainly the perfect place to visit for those who want something different, without giving up all the flavour. Of course, we recommend their selection of Belgian craft beers. 

 

La Porte Noire

Rue des Alexiens 67

If you like beer as much as you like rock and metal, this is, without any room for doubt, your new favourite place.

This underground pub has great service, a wide selection of local craft beers, great music, and a décor that will take you back centuries in time. It's a truly special atmosphere.  You won't be disappointed.

 

GIST

Pl. de la Vieille Halle aux Blés 30

Another of the more "pure" options. Its strong point is just what you're looking for, a wide variety of Belgian craft beers. It's not overcrowded as it's not a very touristy place, so you'll find an authentic Brussels atmosphere. Plus, the staff's knowledge of the beers means that each new brand hides an interesting story. For the real brewers.

 

A l’Imaige Nostre-Dame

Rue du Marché aux Herbes 8

Centrally located but tucked away, which makes you imagine the personal charm of the place. The décor fits in perfectly with how you imagine a Belgian brewery should be.  The range of Belgian and local craft beers on offer is extensive and of high quality.

 

Bier Circus

Rue de l'Enseignement 57

Very central and, as I'm sure you've guessed, close to the Belgian capital's circus, the Cirque Royal. It may be one of the best things to do in Brussels. Their selection of beers ranges from the big commercial brands to smaller companies known only to locals and true hop lovers.

 

The Floris Bar

Imp. de la Fidélité 12

Very close to the famous statue of the peeing girl Jeanneke Pis and the even more famous Delirium Café. Although it is next to the famous Delirium Café, it has nothing to envy. The drinks on offer are excellent, with a huge variety of beers from all over the world, as well as local craft beers. A great party atmosphere and the feeling that your night is only going to get better as soon as you arrive.
