This is probably the most famous beer bar in Brussels. This comes with it's disadvantages. I wouldn't call it a 'tourist trap' directly, but it has some features of it.
Let's start on the positive side. The menu here is pretty good. All the (Belgian) beers you expect are on there. The first downside, however, is the list of prices behind the beers. Yes, this place is overpriced.
Another problem is the atmosphere. Not of the bar itself, but rather of the usual clientele, which exists of tourists and (foreign) students. Especially when the night, and the beer consumption, progresses, the atmosphere might get somewhat grim, with drunken students and tourists harassing girls or picking fights with other guys in or in front of this bar.
Some staff here is capable of informing you about your choices, but of others you expect they haven't been hired for their knowledge of beer. Finally, the service is comparable to that of most bars and restaurants in this tourist district: unfriendly, inconsiderate, and clearly not hoping for recurring visitors. If you're a tourist and want to see and taste the best Brussels has to offer, there are other beer bars to consider.

Fantastic atmosphere (though the average age of the crowd made me feel my years) and a great selection! I know this is one of the more popular and touristy beer bars in the area and has a reputation for being like a frat house at times, but I love it and think it's an essential stop in Brussels.
