A-This bar is located relatively near the Grand Place in Brussels and maybe 400 meters from Manneken Pis. This was the first bar we visited after arriving in Brussels and it was certainly a big departure from the village pubs we had been visiting earlier in the week. It has modern, industrial-chic decor with concrete and exposed brick and re-purposed wood. The space is pretty good sized, with 15 or so large booths and a long (for Europe) bar with plenty of room. The place was pretty quiet when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon with one table of Italian tourists keeping the volume up.

Q-The tap selection is huge for Belgium (maybe 25 beers) with a good array of gueuze, in particular, and quality Belgians from virtually every major old-wordl style. I did not explore the bottle list in-depth, but it looked hefty.

Ser-Our waiter was very knowledgeable and courteous. He was there when we needed something, but otherwise left us alone. You got the distinct impression he was working here because he liked beer and knew what he was serving.

Sel-As noted above, this was probably the best selection of taps I saw in Belgium. The list was heavily Belgian but there were a few Germans and and a few British beers, too. There was even an American beer or two on draft (although I forgot to write down which one).

F-We just ordered a meat and cheese plate, which was pretty decent. The pate was excellent, but the cheeses were nothing to write home about.

V-Prices were considerably higher than in the countryside, as you might expect, but still within reason for a big city like Brussels.

Fantastic selection of world class beers and great service. The menu is a bit limited, but why would that be a problem.
