I'm in love with this place.

First, I want to talk about the neighborhood. Everyone says it's in a sketchy part of town and I suppose I can understand why, but it's really not. It's just a Moroccan neighborhood that doesn't look as nice. Everyone I've encountered here has been amazingly friendly and helpful (I'm living on the next street over for the Summer) and I've never had any issues. I will say the brewery seems out of place, though. But on to the good stuff.

Once you open the door (look up for the sign as it's easy to miss) you're immediately hit by the smell. I've been to a number of breweries but this smell is something special. It's hard to put my finger on whatever it is, but I promise it will make you salivate, especially if you visit multiple times.

The tour is worth it. Do it. Don't ask any questions; just do it. Try and go on a brewing day, if possible. Drink everything available. It's ridiculously cheap, even compared to what you can buy in Brussels are stores or bars. DOn't even get me started on the challenge of acquiring some of this in the States.

Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Family owned and somewhat family run. They'll talk to you all day about beer. Also gave great suggestions for other places to go in Brussels. They're used to beer nerd pilgrims of all different ethnicities and languages. Every time I go I have a very pleasant experience and it's usually with a different person each time.

It would be a crime to go to Brussels and not visit this wonderful establishment. I'm honestly about to go calculate my food budget for the rest of the summer to figure out how many times I can go here. After that, it's on to figuring out how much I can take home.

Go here!
