Beer Bar in Brussels - The Guardian Selection

Currently I am pretty busy with my non-beer-blogging life so apologies for the sudden silence. Any guest bloggers ready to review some Belgian Beers?
In the meantime, The Guardian wrote an interesting piece on Brussels Beer Bars. Some classics (Monk) made it to the list. Others, surprisingly, not. Do you agree with the top 10 selection? What are your favorite beers bars in Brussels?

That's a pretty decent list! Very touristy selection for the most part, but then again, who hasn't been a tourist at some point? I love the Brocante place, they have a very decent selection of beers, among others Saison Dupont, which I haven't seen in many places. Great atmosphere both because of the place and its people.

One recommendation to make, although it isn't a Belgian Beer Bar. Off Chaussée de Charleroi, on rue Moris, is a very cozy pub called Taverne Centre-Europeenne. As the name indicates the atmosphere is central-eastern european, lots of wood paneling and kind of dark, but with character. Makes you think you're in the Czech Republic or somehting! If I remember well, Pilsner Urquell and others on tap, plus a selection of other central and eastern european beers, I had a Romanian one which was fun. A very courageous initiative, to offer foreign beer in Brussels, but a very welcome one.
A place to enhance even more the city's cosmopolitan side.

I like the Delirium very much, but it's nowhere to be found in the list :-(
