Out of all the bars I'd read about in Brussels, this is the one I wanted to visit most. This is also the one that had the biggest difference between my expectation and the reality it left on me; in other words it was the biggest disappointment.

This place is across the alley from the Janneken Pis (a little girl peeing statue; sort of a parody of the Mannekin Pis) just off the main tourist drag in Brussels. The signage out front indicates 2004 beers. Inside, the upstairs had draft beer, and the downstairs had bottled beer. It reminded me of the dive bar that everyone hung out at in college...you know the one with $1 pitcher night and smelled like pee? There were lots of brewery tackers on the wall, but the place had a very collegiate feel which was not very sophisticated. I've remarked that other establishments lack "beer culture" and that is the case here also.

The beer list is extensive, but hard to navigate. It is a binder and each beer has its own page, which makes it very difficult to get a feel for what's there in total.

The bartendress didn't speak any English (which is OK, this is a foreign country with 3 official languages of its own after all) but even with the language barrier it was pretty clear to me she didn't know an awful lot about beer. I got the wrong beer, but I didn't mind too much.

Visit, but save your repeat business for other places.
