“Worth a look.. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Not a lot here but interesting enough, the ?5 cost isn't bad at all as a beer would cost you nearly that around Grand Place.

“Small two-room museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Great as long as you are not expecting anything huge. This is a two room museum in the basement of the Brewer's guild building right on Grand Place. Included in admission is a glass of beer (light or dark) that is actually quite well made (as is almost all the beer in Belgium). Worth a visit if you are in the area already, or have a Brussels Card.

“For 5€ you visit the museum and have a free beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

For beer lovers, especially Belgium beer this is the best pit stop at the Grand Place when it is hot outside. My favourite beer 'Leffe blonde' is available and it is fascinating to see the history and tools of making beer. At the end if the trip you are given a glass of cold beer of your choice and it is cheaper to get a cold drink than on the Grand Place at one of the cafés there! A small coffee costs 3-4€ so this is good value plus being in a basement it is COOL on a hot summer day! I would certainly recommend this place even just for visiting to see how beer is made on a video!

“Not great but only €5”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

This is a very small museum but the film was very entertaining.

It is only €5 to get in and you do get a beer at the end.

The best part of this museum was meeting and chatting to other beer lovers.

“Great little break!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Its a little museum right in the centre of brussells, not the biggest but its only only 5euros and you get a free beer, good place to go if you need a break and sit-down from the busy centre. The bartender Patrick was very friendly and informative, gave us lots of information about good places to eat and go out. He even gave us a second beer!! While we were there lots of people came in and all seemed happy about their visit. I was surprised reading all the reviews, as it is DEFINITELY worth 5 euros!
