Tim Webb described Bier Circus as one of those places trying to take its focus off the beer list in Good Beer Guide: Belgium, and the truth of that statement reduced the enjoyment of my visit to what is otherwise a great stop on my beer tour.

We visited at nearly 10pm on a Friday night, to find a large ¾ empty dining room in front, and a tiny bar area in back. When the host found out we weren't having dinner, we were herded into the tiny, packed, sweltering bar area.

Once packed into the back, the experience started to improve. Ambience is quite modern, and the smoke-free environment was greatly appreciated. The bottle list was quite long, and offered a few hard to find gems. It was the only place in Belgium where I saw the Buffalo Belgian Stout, which was a beer on my list.

The wait-staff was attentive and helpful (there were 3 bartenders behind a packed bar), although did not seem especially beer savvy when I asked them questions. I asked about the availability of De Struise beers, and got what to me was a strange answer about how they don't stock De Struise because they are not "real brewers" and are "bad people." Not sure what to make of that.

I would recommend Beer Circus...the food looked pretty good and in hindsight I wish we would have eaten there...might have improved my impression of the place.
