  • This great shop has now sadly closed as Pierre passed away a few months ago. The brussels beer scene has lost a great advocate though that pales with the loss to his family.  more »
  • Due to health issues and an understandable desire to spend more time with his young child, Pierre has closed the shop to browsing customers. You can still book private tasting for a group via email th...  more »
  • Shop run by an enthusiast. Huge selection of beers, some of which are little known to the general public including the Duchess of Burgundy, very typical and special, but so delicious! I recommend without hesitation to open and pass the door of this establishment.

  • great place to discover beers. visit with an idea, or just ask for help. and, if you have time, sit and discover some of the specialities. from the bottles to the glasses. an hidden place in Brussels, but like a jewel, you'll love it
  • To experience the best of Belgian beer and hospitality, walk a few short blocks from the Grand Place, through St Hubert's, and visit Pierre in his beer shop. He is extremely knowledgeable (he offers 2-hr classes by arrangement), fluent and friendly in several languages. The beer selection is wide and seems hand-picked from amongst the best and most original beer flavors. My bottles were wrapped with care to survive the plane ride home (I wasn't so lucky elsewhere). Worth the trip, if only for a photo of his beautifully arranged front window.
  • If you want a place where you can savor and learn the story behind what is in your glass, then this is the place. Pierre and Anne singlehandedly changed my approach to beer. I have a brand new appreciation for how unique each of their offerings are. Any place that is closed Tuesday and Wednesday so he can travel the country sourcing new product from monks and local beer societies is worth a few hours of your time. The local meats and cheeses that he pairs with different beers are a nice touch as well. Pierre even opened up at 8am for a group of us who had a 6 hour layover traveling from Kenya to the States to do a tasting session with us. Who else has beers that paired with the fresh croissants...
  • Fabulous place to taste and sample an unparalleled beer selection. The staff is extremely knowledgable and can recommend great beers based on your preferences.
  • My wife and I recently spent two weeks in Brussels and we visited Pierre at Délices & Caprices several times to both drink in and take away a few bottles of beer. Pierre is extremely knowledgeable about every beer he carries and every bottle he opened for us included a brief history of the brewery and specifics about the individual beer. This is not a tourist trap, but a hidden gem worthy of the most discriminating beer fanatic or anyone seeking to learn about and enjoy incredible beers. I can’t wait to return to Brussels so I can visit Pierre and Délices & Caprices again.

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
