Description: In this interior, that seems to be a copy of an authentic pub of the years 1930 with a typical tiled floor and "lampes belges", you may expect no-nonsense Belgian plain fare with a beer twist. To evolue the right atmosphere you can drink your beer at the into tables transformed yeast presses, seated on half barrels converted into chairs. You'll almost have to make a study to choose your beer out of the 25 draught beers and more than 300 bottled beers! There fore they present a beer encyclopedia with pictures and clarifications. On friday there is a beer sommelier to answer all your questions.

“Beer heaven”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

this is the place definitely for the beer lovers, so if you are looking for gourmet dinner - that's for sure the wrong place. You have 20 different beers on tap and 300 beers served by catalog - real beer encyclopedia ( you can get a copy of it if you wish). there are not too many waiters working, which can cause some delays with the orders, but generally the atmosphere, beer and great mood are guaranteed.

“Great choice and great fun”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Lovely little alcoves and booths and a selection of beer from all over the world, which went straight to my head i must admit.

Great architecture too and a supermarket for takeaways below stairs

“Perfect for a beer and casual dinner”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We really enjoyed Bier Central and we visited here several times during our trip. We ate here once, and the burgers were great. Nothing gourmet, but nice, solid, staple food to wash down with a beer or two. Service was always friendly and efficient and we were surprised how busy they were mid week. On one evening, we sat at the bar and that added a whole new perspective. Lots of beers, both on tap and bottles - huge variety. Nice vibe, yet relaxed at the same time.
