.. whenever we are in Brussels. I agree with previous comments and even the "seeming" unhelpfulness of the staff at times. Put this in context: they are almost always busy or busy'ish; on most days, its mainly tourists who sit themselves in one of the best beer bars and then turn out to know nothing at all about beer. "What beer do you recommend ?" is a phrase that must make their hearts sink. This is not snobbishness - after all, does anyone ever go into a grocer's shop and ask the counter staff to recommend vegetables ? Even if you do not know a lot about beer, then the menu is laid out in styles to help you make an informed choice.
The staff are very helpful if you show interest, and this is a great beer place. Just don't ask for Heineken.
