Nice and cosy place just a few blocks away from the Antwerp cathedral. Good beer list with some interesting lambics and guezes. Good service, but questionable food though.

Great little courtyard and bar off the beaten path, worth the pedestrian detour. Now reaching 100+ beers with real lambics and surprises. Slaapmutske Challenger was here and interesting, sadly ruined by dirty lines I think, but I know enough about this place to assume that was an isolated incident.

Wouldn’t have necessarily assumed this was much of a beer place from the outside. Fairly interesting setup, I’m still not quite sure I understand it. Decent selection of tap beers and not a bad bottle list either. Friendly service with some interesting characters at the bar.

Hidden away in the corner of the Stadswaag, Waagstuk is a very cozy place (the house dog walking around helps in this regard!). Indoors is peaceful and divided into several rooms, but the outdoors courtyard works just as well! The selection of beers is quite standard. The beer of the month right now is the Hop Ruiter by the Scheldebrouwerij, a very tasty beer. Prices are generally okay, for example Dulle Teve for a decent price (usually higher in other places), but a standard beer like Rochefort 10 goes for much higher than elsewhere. The service was exemplary; friendly and knowledgeable all around. I did not try the food they offer. Waagstuk’s strength is its atmosphere and the friendly service. It is a place where you can have a good beer in good company. Later in the evening the bars nearby seem to fill up with students from the university nearby.

Not very easy to find, but worth the effort. There’s a nice beer list, decent with some jewels, though not everything that’s available seems to be listed on the beer menu. Some exciting beers on draught. Overall a solid place to visit.

And it was nice to have a chance encounter with 77ships in his natural environment ;)

Visited on the Sunday afternoon of 2010 ZBF weekend. Three rooms, all completely different, no food allowed to be eaten in the bar area, so we moved into ’The Zeppelin’ room (you’ll see why I called it that if you go) for our healthy deep fat fried beerfood selection of Cheese Puffs, Bitterballen and mini Lumpia’s. The bar is fairly barron in looks, dusty old steins are in evidence and a large branch clings to the ceiling with a small light at the end of each twig, very effective and adds a rural feel to the bar room. The third, or back room is darker and more boring than the other two, lets call it ’Odenbach’, again you’ll know why if you visit this lovelly tucked away place. Service was friendly and swift, the young lady who served us had very good English and knew her stuff, beer wise. Stone walls and solid wooden furniture in all the rooms, a typical Belgian ale house, the building dates back to 1548. Even though it is not easy to find and well away from most of the other ’recommended’ beer bars of Antwerp it was fairly full. The customers were both local and beerhunters like my wife and I who were over for the Zythos Beer Festival and staying in Antwerp (mostly Brits).

They only want to sell food. So we went out to visit an other place.

Cosy place with nice service and great beers as "hopruiter" and a lot of Geuze and Kriek.

We had high hopes for this place and my first impression was very positive, from the 19th red brick facade to the interior of wooden furniture and dark walls. However, the beer selection left a little to be desired (especially compared to some of the beer bars in Antwerp) and the service was slow and misguided. We asked for food recommendations and was served a meal that was tasteless, to say the least, and uninspired - reminding me of something they must have thrown together in a micro oven. So, even if the place still had a nice atmosphere, the lack of exciting beers and the possibly worst food I’ve tasted in Europe really pulls down my rating of this restaurant.
