.. otherwise it's 5 euros for a beer!! Ignore the video, it's not very interesting. There are some interesting old pub games (not for actual playing!) and a useful "what beer goes with what meal" page in the brochure, but that's really it.

I really wouldn't call this a museum. This place is very small. Once you enter, you will go down stairs and pay a 5 Euro admission fee which includes a beer. You will be given a book explaining the brewing process to assist you in...More

The cost is only 5 euro. I feel it's better spent buying two beers and staying in a hostel. The blonde beer wasn't very good and the dark wasn't terrible. Just say the entrance was better then the museum part. All you do is watch...More

If you have 20 minutes to spare when you are around Grand Place in Brussels, go and visit the Museum of Belgian brewers, it is in a basement on the square. For €5 you will see how they make beer, look at some of the...More

Shame! This very small museum features just 3 small rooms with almost nothing to do and to see. Shame! There is a very small bar, since the €5 ticket fee includes a degustation, a room with some tables and a 3rd room featuring a boring...More

Long story short -> you pay 5€ per person and you can enter a room to see some beer utilities (no real information on how to brew beer). In this room you will watch a 15min movie (more or less the heart of this museum)...More

Calling this a museum is a but of a stretch. Has artifacts and information about brewing process and you get a tasting at the end. It's dark and uninteresting. Take your euros and buy a beer at a pub and skip this.

Compared to sapporo and heineken museums, it is just a display of the equipment used plus a brochure. With 5 euros, you get one drink plus a brochure. Am not sure if it is worth the visit because I tended to compare with the two...More

We stumbled upon this tiny museum and despite being uncertain if it was legit or not decided to take the plunge. It consists of a main cellar room with seating and antique beer-making equipment, a small front bar room where you get your beer sample,...More
