“The best beer tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

The factory is very impressive, from the history of Bert making, to pictures, to the machinery , to the types of grains used to make beer, to the founders of beer, to thousands I'd different beer collection to the movies and the beer tasting, the experience was phenomenal. I am not a beer drinker but my husband likes beer so we went on this tour and I was happy to tag alone. Belgium is beautiful, clean, very friendly people and as a whole a very hospitable place. The souvenir shops were excellent and they have in my concern even though I am not an expert on beer the best beer in the world. The beer is do flavory and soooo delicious. I tasted 4 different types. They even had honey beer wow ! I want to go back to Belgium. Now I drink Belgium beer :)

“Misleading name!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Despite the name, this is not at all a place for beer lovers. It has a poor beer selection by comparison to nearby places and the food is average. Not much atmosphere.

“OK place for a beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Despite its name, they do not produce their own beer. And, surprisingly, they do not even have that many types of beer! Quite unusual in Belgium. Location is ideal for the youngsters hanging out in Place de Luxembourg and for the Eurocrats working in the European Parliament. The place is rather new and clean but lacks some charme. Service could be improved and food is average. Overall Ok if you are around, less noisy than the pubs nearby and more easy to find a chair a the bar.

“Ok if you are in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Good beer, food was mediocre. Service ok. Only worth a visit if you are at place de luxembourg. Not sure about their opening times in weekends, since all the places around luxembourg close for the weekends more or less.
