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.

Fairly well known, touristy spot but a fun place to visit. Obviously they have their famed 2000+ beer bottle list but might as well drink some DT or DN on draft or wait forever for a bottle. It can get pretty packed so maybe not a place to hang out all night.

Obviously a great selection. But, too big and touristy for me. Try the Loft area for something more quiet.
