  • On the grand place in Brussels hoping to find a giant Museum of the tradition of beer... To bad of a small staircase you come across a shambles with a few tables and a small room or a man of a certain age will sell you a ticket for the visit and a beer (no card, cash!). You then go in a room and you discover that the Museum boils down to a play, a few chairs and two videos without interest... Then you come back in the first room and try to sit aoresxavour retrieves your promised beer, 15cl of blond or white (for € 5 so). Nice small business... Run away!

  • "Museum" disappointing or only a movie is proposed... No visit to site of brewing or instruments. Too bad because interesting topic, especially in the heart of Brussels.

  • We had a group excursion, tasting was included. Yes, this museum is not big, still the people were very friendly showing us around. There were three glasses of beers for tasting, I liked the beer.  more »

  • Exactly what it says - beer and a video/small brewery tour for only €5. Interesting to see, beer was good. A good way to spend an hour in Brussels.
  • Although the waiter was honest with what you get before you pay (a video and a beer), you expect some exhibits or at least a good quality video. But No! People would expect a "museum" in the city's main square would have some content, but there isn't any!
  • It's not too bad, but when it comes down to it, it's pretty much 5€ for a beer ;) If you don't drink beer, skip it. If you do drink beer, why not just go on in. I'm sure you've wasted 5€ on worse. The museum part is minimal, with (as many said) a basement display and a movie...so... Definitely go grab a beer if you have the Brussels card. That makes it a nice break during the day.
  • The museum was going to watch a video and getting a free beer after the video is over. The video isn't that interesting and you can get the beer cheaper at a local bar. Given Belgium's history with beer and the different varieties, I was hoping for a more in depth discussion of the different trappist breweries or how lambic beers came about. Unless you have the Brussles Card, which gives you free admission and therefore a free beer, don't bother with this place.
  • Avoid this tourist trap at all cost. I don't complain for the almost null content, what is an insult for Belgium beer tradition is calling "tasting" choosing one out of two beers.
