My second beer bar in Belgium didn't disappoint...much... Though prepared I was still a touch overwhelmed by the phone book sized beer menu. It was well laid out and easy to order from. Unfortunately, (and this was the disappointing part) they were "temporarily out" of the first three beers I ordered. I was in luck with my fourth pick and it turned out to be an absolute diamond - De Cam Oude Geuze. The pluses on the menu included more than 400 Belgian beers and many oddities from Holland and Germany. The down side was that the other half of menu was dominated by rubbish lagers from around the globe, and I suspected that many of these bottles were very, very old. My suspicions were quickly proven correct.

After receiving my first beer, an Aussie, a Russian, and a west African walked into the bar. They excitingly ordered some crap lager from West Africa. Delerium was able to serve up the rare beer, complete with an expiration date from more than two years prior. The expats were not pleased but were refunded their Euros and soon found another beer more to their liking.

Though this sounds bad, I would still strongly recommend Delerium because after all, with hundreds of beers worth trying including many rarities, who really cares if they're out of one or two that you would like? Believe me, you'll find something else worth drinking.

Atmosphere wise Delerium is a winner. A beer geek will never tire of checking out the beer junk that clutters every square inch of the place. It's dark and cellared with a hip fell despite its aged and somewhat run down appearance.

Service was reasonably quick and fairly knowledgeable about beer. Prices were reasonable.
