Excellent place. Lots on tap, including several nice Cantillon. Staff were attentive and helpful. Location was easy to get to. Not a ton to select from in terms of food. Its also cool that they put some malted grains on your table to nibble on.

Cozy setting that has a lot of seating for not being that big of a place. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful tenders. The beer menu is, as others have stated, epic. There are a lot of cask ales that I bet are not available in more than five bars in Brussels. The food was average Belgian pub fare (we had some sausage and bread). Prices are good, about six or seven Euros for most of the beers. If in Brussels this is a must visit, OBVIOUSLY.

I went twice; once on a Tuesday night and then again on Wednesday afternoon. The place was busy but not overcrowded, naturally there were a lot of tourists there and many an English conversation to be heard. The beer board is epic; I dont think there’s any need to go on about that - it is well reviewed by people before me. Draft Cantillon is something that everyone should experience! The staff are great and always helping out. Whether that be waiting on tables or talking beers. Located in the centre and easily accesible by public transport links, which are right outside. Ambiance is cosy; dim lighting and a very comfortable setting. It did not feel overcrowded whatsoever - perhaps a different story at weekends though. The music playing in the background was conversation haltingly loud.

It’s about the best setting in Brussels that you could ask for, centrally located but not swarming with tourists, the front terrace provides sidewalk seating to give you a comprehensive view of Place Fontainas, and the beer selection is easily the best in the Brussels, and arguably the best in the world. That’s not something I say lightly, but understand on my visit they were pouring multiple Cantillons from cask, offered a half-dozen 4.0+ level hoppy golden Belgian ales (De la Senne, De Ranke, Jandrain), and Moeder is the only place known to carry the stellar bottle-conditioned Thiriez Jean Chris Nomad (a 4.5% blonde / saison made with myrrh.) If that was not enough, just prior to our visit they were featuring Gänstaller Bräu (Zoigl, Golden Smoked Zoigl and Affumicator, I shit you not). If your eyes are wider than just sour beer you can find a lot of depth in the beer menu and enjoy world class Belgian beer without shelling out hundreds of euros. I don’t throw out a lot of 100/100 scores, and it’s not that I consider a place scoring 100 to be "perfect", but rather I consider it the top of the game. Few places, if any, do good beer better than Moeder.

Been here many times now, and I think this placedeserves a full new review. This is ( at the moment ) probably one of the best places - qualitywise - I’ve ever seen . I don’t fully agree on the way they pour beers from tap ( guess thats a bartender / beergeek thing ) but at least they do know their basics and far more . Beer is always top quality , as they cool the kegs ( not the lines , who are thus also shorter - a system I’ve only seen here and in Gollem Antwerp ) Which is the best quality for kegs on the market today . The beerlist might not be whalish on tap , but they have very damn nice basics, and always a couple of special ones . Bottles are only big ones to share, and are OK to a bit expensive ( same goes for prices on tap ) But I’m happy to pay a bit more if I at least get awesome quality . Always something fun to drink , next to the rediculously delicious Cantillon Sausages . The service is strongly depending . I had 1 bad service once , I had a couple of mediocer services, But I also had some very damn nice service ( a guy named Thomas takes the lead as the best service I had so far ! ) the only downside is that this place is very ’cool’ looking and thus not cosy at all ... Its a real geek-out place, rather than a place to sit and enjoy your drink peacefully . What they do , they do the best way imaginable , but I miss that specific something extra, that makes a bar have a soul ... Rating this higher than the original 82 score now .

un plaisir de parler avec les seveurs compétents et disponibles, le bar est superbement bien agencé et situé dans Bruxelles, la sélection de bière et les animations sont une référence en Europe

Date of visit, 6th October 14. Rainy Monday night and the place was pretty quiet, but not dead. Liked the modern style, the choice was good, plenty of Cantillon, De Ranke, and other styles, including IPA and Stout, pretty much all Belgian, but good choices. I could have stayed longer and for more than the 4 beers and nice platter of meats and cheese, had it not been for the annoying, important work meeting I had the next day :) the service was good and the staff knowledgable and happy to advise. Good place and a pure contrast to the hectic Delirium Cafe

Much more modern and larger place than I expected and certinaly modern in appeal too. Not only are a decent amount of sours on tap, the whole list is impressive. For the modern beer geek there’s guest taps, mostly European craft imports and stuff I haven’t seen elsewhere. THe place was fairly full but certianly not too busy because of the layout and the staff had enough time for a chat. In fact, the staff was very knowledgeable and open in general, whether we spoke Frech, Dutch or English. Pries are good and the atmosphe is great. Very good bar!
