Rejoice, beer lovers, for one of Belgium’s most famous beer bars, the Delirium Cafe, is now open in Malaysia!
Belgium has always been famous for its beer. The beverage is so rooted in the country’s culture that Unesco even added Belgian beer to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. From world-famous Trappist and abbey ales, tasty fruit beers and uniquely flavourful sours, to refreshing blondes and easy wheat beers, there is a Belgian beer for every one and every sort of beer drinker, and now, there is a place in Malaysia where you can get them.
Located at Suria KLCC, outside by the lake (look for the giant pink elephant, you can’t miss it), the bar is the 11th Delirium Cafe location globally, and boasts an impressive selection of Belgian beers and traditional Belgian food (make sure you try the fries!).
The original Delirium Cafe in Brussels is famous for having one of the largest beer menus in the world, with more than 2,000 beers listed on its menu, which is almost as thick as a textbook. The KL branch may not have that many, but with 12 beers on tap and more than 80 Belgian beers by the bottle (at the time of writing, with more to be added in due course), many of which are exclusive to the outlet, it does have the most extensive range of Belgian beers in Malaysia.
Prices range from RM28-51 for bottled beers, which may not be your typical kopitiam prices. Then again, these are not your typical kopitiam beers – Trappist ales like Orval, Westmalle and Rochefort, for instance, are considered some of the world’s best beers, and Delirium is arguably the only place in KL where you can get them.
The bar also serves a comprehensive menu of food, which includes imported Belgian fries, mussels in broth, beef beer stew, and others.
