The Delirium Bar is far more interesting, at least to foreigners I think. It's from the same people who own the Floris Bar (and the new rum bar next to the Floris which opened recently). Every Belgian brand is available there, as well as a load of foreign beers. If you want to learn about Belgian beers, that's the place to go. If you take a Belgian along to help you choose from the enormous menu.

I drank a lot of absinthe at Floris, because, hey, it was a good opportunity to try a bunch of stuff I hadn't before. But yeah, not cheap. The crowd was similar to Delerium, though a little thinner. Less touristy too. Young and rowdy.

About to head to Floris in the next few days. Anything in particular I should try?

They have about 400 lines in total. But they have taken down the online menu, so I cannot be specific. Anything you can order online from the European vendors is there, and usually at good prices.

Alright, headed there tonight. I'll let you know what I try.

I ended up getting Jade Edouard and it was fantastic. I was so excited to see Jade I didn't think about the fact that I could probably find it cheaper back in the States. Alas, it was a good experience and I will be back soon for some of the European lines.
They definitely had a good selection, but there were also tables of fratboys doing shots of absinthe, the poor guy next to me at the bar had done something through a straw they claimed was 190 proof, and the people further down had flaming sugar cubes. But my absinthe was prepared perfectly with a fountain and no one tried to peddle me any of the aforementioned horrors once I said "Jade," so that was nice.
