A complete waste of time and money, this place is a joke; if you want to see a YouTube video of Belgian breweries for 5 euros go a head

Small museum near La Grande Place near the statue of Everard 't Serclaes that you rub for good luck. One room explains to you the brewing process with a short video, and the other is a recreation of an old brew house with artifacts with a generous tasting of a local secret beer. If you are nice enough to the... More

There are 2 exhibits here, basically 2 rooms. 1 room is a reproduction of what a brewery might have looked like 100 yeas ago in Belgium. And the other room is a reproduction of what a modern brewery might look like. No real content to explore here. The best part - you get 1 beer as part of your entrance... More

Don't bother with this place. IT IS NOT A MUSEUM. It's a room with a terrible video and then you go to a tiny bar and get a small beer all for €5. Waste of money.

This isn't really a museum -- you pay your 5 Euro and walk into a room with some brewing equipment and a few displays, and watch a sort-of-interesting video about brewing and the history/culture of beer in Brussels. There is a little information on the old Brewers guild (the museum is in the guild hall) which is kind of interesting,... More

Sorry, this was a waste of time. We walked down the old stairs to find nothing really worth seeing. You pay for entrance and then there's a self-guided tour. It is a dark, little place with some old and new equipment to look at but not much else. There's a video, but all we saw were ads for different beer... More

Visited yesterday and was so disappointed. Looks great from outside but inside there isnt much to see. Small 20cl beer at the end and a glossy guidebook took the pain away!

Awful. Nothing to see. Bad beer that puts Belgium to shame. Tourist board should ban it. A waste even at €5 and sexist fools run it. On the plus side the beer in bars, much better :)

A small museum/exhibition below the guild of brewers house in the Grand place. Exhibition not really worth seeing, especially if you know anything about brewing already. Met by a rather sarcastic attendant (at the time entertaining the ladies in the Jazz stage crew !) - didn't stay to sample anything as still "entertaining". A real shame as there are so... More

For the price we cannot say that is a bad place (5? entrance plus a small beer) but it is not a real museum not a real tavern so i suggest you to go to another really good other place like café delirium.
