Re: Any hidden gems?

Obviously Wine Rack Stewartstown (disclosure I helped advise on their range when first setup and regularly get beers at cost from him)
Fairleys Coleraine
Lighthouse Wines in Whiteabbey

Hah. Yeah; they'd have to call the Derry one 'Even more Northerly than before- Lights', or something.

Heading to the Belfast one for a few tomorrow night. Will report back.

Re: Must visit in Brussels?

Yes that's the top spot. Try to go to cantillon too, good wee tour with samples included and some nice stuff to drink in.
Loads of other decent places, Ratebeer listing fairly up to date. Personal faves let Fleur en papier Doree, neutnignenuf, Brussels beer project
