  • We went into here more out of curiosity than anything else and we were pleasantly surprised. Located close to the Hard Rock Cafe Brussels you descend down a staircase were you enter a lovely drinking ...  more »
  • Entry € 5 per person I expected to have a more extensive and documented in a way other than by small movies Museum. The more present the tanks to beers. The tasting at the end is nice but the staff could have been of benefit to my taste.

  • Small underground museum with two rooms, a cluttered room full of pre-industrial brewing equipment, and a modern brewery. Beer is brewed on site and a beer comes with the ticket.
  • For 5 euros you get a beer and a look at some old brewing equipment. Was an okay experience but probably could get better from a nice pub.
  • Not a real museum. Only one screen and five old beer barrels. Well you pay the entrance and get a beer sample.
  • Very poor museum. There is nothing to see in the 1 room they have. And the beer you get is of poor quality.
  • Skip this place and just take your 5€ to a pub instead. If you already know about beer, you won't learn anything. If you know nothing about beer, you won't learn much. Room one is some pieces of old brewing equipment with no explanations but decorated with kitschy Brussels tourist paraphernalia. Room two is a bunch of new brewing equipment with short, boring explanations and a video that must have been made back in the 90s. Cheesy music and stock footage of beer being made, not a lot of information. Back to room one, which also serves as the 'degustation room'. You have the choice of two beers (in our case, a pils and a dubbel), but the guy running the show didn't really care to tell us anything about the beers at all. It was like pulling teeth just to get him to reveal the names of the breweries the two sample beers came from. This is run by the Belgian Brewers Association, but there's no passion or love, nor interest in actually educating people about beer at all. Just a sad tourist trap.
