Decent enough location, modern decor. Cantillon and 3F lambic on draught. Draughts were affordable, but the bottles were expensive (up to 250 euro, probably just for show, with no intention to actually see them, with the important exception of one amazing expereince with afrantzell). Hosts a number of beer related events, a good sign. Has links with Cantillon, so gets interesting bottles.

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 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.

Place rating 1000.

I’ve tried several times now to rate this place but my ratings are always over 2300 characters. My previous ratings focused mostly on how terrible Hotel Barry is and how we stayed in that dump. Removing that leaves only a paragraph or two.

This place is awesome. Half a dozen Cantillon beers on tap at any given time, several dozen other (at least somewhat) interesting taps going, an extensive bottle list, and get this, good service. We split a bottle of LH12 for the low low price of 180 euro, a bottle of the original Tilquin Quetche (before the distributed batch came out), and a bottle of Zwanze 2011 (it was thrown in with the purchase of the LH12). The service was great. Maybe it was because we dropped 200 euro on a couple bottles but they were great. They even sold me a liter of St Lamvinus to take to the face. I asked for a boot of Lamvinus and he provided me with the "German solution" (his words, not mine), which was a liter mug. Draft prices were pretty good, bottle prices not so much. In our three days in brussels we stopped in here three times. I’ll definitely be back at some point, hopefully soon.

A much more Americanized bar with 46 taps in addition to an enormous bottle list. A ton of Cantillon beers on tap, lots of miscellaneous Belgian beers, and interestingly, a lot of Italian stuff. Prices aren’t the cheapest (particularly on bottles). Kind of a more nightlife bar feel to it.

We have a couple of well trodden paths when passing through Brussels Midi (Zuid) station. On 30 March and 10 April this year we developed a new route to take in the Moeder Lambic, which I understand is a relatively recent arrival in central Brussels and the sister bar to a highly rated place of the same name further out in the suburbs. This one is situated off a wide pavement, where there is outside seating under a canopy and large square parasols. Inside has a very trendy feel – it’s modern and minimalistic - a long narrow room with low, limed oak booths fixed at right angles to the bare brick wall. The highlight, however, is the tremendous range of regular and guest draft beers including, on this occasion, Cuvee de Ranke, which is an all time favourite of mine so it was a delight to find it here on tap and on my birthday! There isn’t a wide choice of food but they serve artistically arranged salads and tasty cheese and meat platters on stylish square white plates with sour dough bread. Their own recipe soft cheese dish, which comes as part of a cheese plate, is to be recommended. (Last visited 3 October 2012).

Visited several times but first as a ratebeerist. Situated 10-15 mins from Midi and 10 from Centraal a large single roomed bar with nice covered outside area. Landed in the midst of Italian beer weekend. All good stuff and great mix of Belgian and other beers on tap. A must if you visit Brussels

A large tap list serving up everything from lambik & gueuze to guest taps of micro craft beer. We spent a decent amount of time here sampling the beers and most were new for me to try. Excellent, knowledgeable staff. Snack food is tasty. Great beer bar.

Visited on Monday lunchtime - 29/04/13. Approx 15 minutes walk from Midi station, 10 or so from Cantillon. Just off a little square Fontainas is a long narrow venue, bar to the left as you enter running half its length, quite dimly lit. The place was a little quiet with no more than half a dozen other folks ourselves apart - hence ambiance weighs in at 3. Selection is impressive, I didn’t deviate from the tap list but picked out micros from Switzerland, Spain and Italy as well as many Belgian offerings. The food was ok but I wasn’t wowed by it, taste wise solid enough if not world beating but you didn’t get much bang for your buck. Service was fine, the guy eventually cottoned on to the fact we weren’t drinking for fun and began to reappear at our table more regularly! In all a great bar which I’ll revisit at a busier time as I imagine it can get much livlier than on my visit.

We visited here on Friday 16th December 2011. At first I was reminded of the Bar in Amsterdam where they sell predominantly American beers, is it called Beer Temple? And there is no denying that this is a smart clean, trendy place, but after a while I found that it lacked a little soul, and was a tad sterile. The barman was friendly enough and knew his stuff though his one failing was that he seemed to trot out exactly the same lines to every person wandering in off the street. The selection here seemed to be predominantly draught beers and there was a decent selection, in fact with 46 taps a very decent selection. I had a Cantillon Faro though have to be honest I was somewhat underwhelmed, Loz had a De Ranke Hop Harvest which was probably the better choice of the two. Of the two Moeder Lambic bars, I preferred the other one, but this is handily placed and worth popping into. Visited here again on Friday 23rd March 2012 and have to say that I preferred it on this visit, we visited with Jackie & Simon. Huge beer choice with some 46 available on tap, I hadn’t realised it was so extensive a selection. Loz had Schnieder Weisse Nelson Sauvin on tap, I had a Zoigl, Jackie a Thornbridge Steelmakers and Simon a nice hoppy beer (French as I recall?) all in all a nicer place than I recall, tough still lacking a little something.

Top notch, world-class, boss. One of the best bars in Brussels. Great selection on tap, usually with some obscure lambic. Tons of bottles. Plenty of non-Belgian goodness. Decent prices given the quality and location. Nice pub aesthetically. Awesome. A must-visit.
