more than a year ago
When you’re ready to taste some of the best craft beers in Europe, Brussels is definitely the best place for that. Either you’re in the mood for the world-famous Leffe, some typical sweet Flemish beers or the popular lambric, this city has plenty of great bars waiting for you to discover what Belgian beer is all about. The best bars in Brussels are not hard to find, and any beer lover should stop and try at least one of these places that we handpicked especially for you.

A La Mort Subite

Geuze and Lambic beer aficionados will love this place. This traditional Belgian bar called ‘Sudden Death’ opened in 1928 and got its peculiar name after a game played by the regulars. You can find it just a short walk away from the Grand Place and recognize it after the beautiful Art Nouveau façade. They have a great beer list and good snacks, but you should try the Lambic White Mort Subite at least once.


Here you'll find the world’s biggest beer selection in Brussels, with more then 2,000 beers from over 60 countries. You'll find Delirium right by the Jeanneke Pis statue and you'll recognize it by the pink elephant symbol that' not hard to miss. This is maybe the most often visited bar by tourists so you might find it a little crowded, but you'll definitley have fun here. It also holds the Guinness World Records for 2,004 beers available for tasting in 2004.

Le Courbeau

Dancing on the tables is the thing that makes this bar a super fun place to be! Being one of the oldest bars in town, The Crow is the perfect place for serious beer connoisseurs. It has a great selection of beers and you can drink them from the 1 litre ‘Chevalier’ glasses. If you want to experience a proper old school Brussels bar and let off some steam after a long day, you must visit this brasserie that turns into a wild place at night!

A la Becasse

A lovely, wood panelled bar tucked away down a narrow passage near the Grand-Place. This bar is warm and welcoming and they have a wide array of Belgian beers, including the famous lambic, gueuze and kriek and typical snacks from Belgium. It's the perfect place to go if you want to drink beer from a jug at a long table with your friends, so don't be afraid to search for it!

Moeder Lambic Fontainas

With more than 100 different beer bottles and nearly 50 taps to choose from, Moeder Lambic Fontainas is often considered one of the best beer bars in the world. Located a couple of minutes away from the the Manneken Pis statue, this bar serves Belgian and international beers and their food is limited but solid. The staff is always very friendly and there's even a lovely terrace where you can enjoy the brews.
