Melbourne: Brussels in Belgium is all set to open a beer temple in its old stock exchange building.

The "Temple of Belgian Beer" project will be located in the grand 19th century building near the Belgian capital's famed Grand Place, reported.

According to officials, Brussels authorities gave the green light to the plan to make a temple to Belgian beer after a 15-month study.

They said that the temple will be the country's most prized export, in partnership with the Belgian Brewers' Federation.

Philippe Close, the deputy Brussels mayor responsible for tourism, said that he hoped the "temple" could be opened by 2018 and attract 400,000 visitors a year.
