Sitting on the dull Fontainas square in the center of Brussels, this is the place where the travelling beer geeks go, the atmosphere at Delirium being insufferable and the large bottle lists of elsewhere being commonplace in Belgium. Moeder Fontainas really distinguishes itself with its astounding 50 tap lines, often including imports (they had a Stone event with 30 different products recently) and almost always including a fun range of lambics (10+ on our visit) and farmhouse ales. The focus clearly is on the taps and hence, the depth is not as great as in other Brussels’ pubs, its St-Gilles counterpart being one. Nonetheless, you feel you’re in a Mecca in here, all the employees seem to be passionate about beer. The food menu is very limited, but you can survive on their toast or omelette which are tasty enough, albeit not very filling. In terms of atmosphere, I found the modern look a bit cold, but I could still see myself spending hours here. Most patrons seemed to be beer lovers and that helps. We went while it was not too busy, but despite the considerable room at the rear, I can imagine it being very full. Simply decorated with photos somehow related to beer, it seems to rely on the patrons to really make the ambiance. Impeccable selection and service and the prime location make it a top spot in Brussels.

Walked back to the centre after a visit to Cantillon Brewery. This was a very nice place to stop on the way back. Excellent service! Very good selection and nice atmosphere, definitely a place I will visit again.

A friend of mine told me to go to this place, and really I had a great surprise, the best place I have been in Brussels, their draft beer is an experience, a great beer tour in just one place.

Loved the place small friendly, Jean the owner made sure we were well taken care of and gave us a tour of his draft system and cellar. Caught the place during Stone and Cantillion’s evenings. Had the pate and cheese plate both nights we went.

46 pressions, personnel formé, accueillant et professionnel, service impeccable, sélection incroyable de bières Italiennes, Francaises, Belges... Le tout : en pression ! Certaines bouteilles (75cl) valent vraiment le coup, mais pour les bières bouteilles il vaut mieux privilégier le Moeder St-Gilles. Question ambiance, c’est trés moderne, neuf, propre, peut-être un peu froid. Sinon, excellent établissement qui va au bout de son idée et qui refuse tout compromis ! Mi-Septembre, la brasserie Stone était présente en guest, nous avons tous passé un moment inoubliable ! Aussi recommandable qu’incontournable...
