Nice place in Brussels. Has a lot of different Lambics. When I was there, they had a lot of beers from Stone too. Ok service, but too busy to do a proper service. Met a lot of ratebeerians there.

I really don’t get why this place is so popular! Prices are really high, and service pompuous... So many better places, came there because of rate, and so disapointed!

Top place, top staff and of course top beers! The bar is made for beer lovers, you will be able to taste beers you probably never had on tap. Wide range to please any palette.

Very nice place, great tap list. probably the most taps in Belgium. always something foreign and intersting on tap too, a rarity in beerchauvinistic Belgium. Try the pottekeis sandwich! it’s great

I was there for the Zwanze Day 2011, the same as "Stone vs Moeder". Everything was perfect. MUST be seen.

Nice new looking place with a modern feel and a large contrast versus my previous stop, Cantillon. They just had a Stone brewery event here and Dbl Bastard was on tap, good to see. They also seem to specialize in having brews on tap from various European countries. I enjoyed the Cantillon offering that is made and served only at Moeder. Pretty cool. I overhead the term ‘ratebeer’ come up a few times from the table behind me. Seems like a place aimed at satisfying us geeks. I love eating the little bowl of malts they place on the table. Makes for a decent palate cleanser. Go here.

Very new feel, high lighting, clean interior. Service is a bit cold, friendly but impersonal. Food was nice, cheese plate very refreshing as a break in between the lambic. Excellent tap list, tons of variety, but prices excessively high and atmosphere a bit blah. Also, I don’t understand charging 180 euro for LH12 or Zwanze ’08 given Jean’s opinion on eBay. Overall quite nice, probably the most varied and extensive list in Belgium, but too large, clean, and perfunctory to register as a personal favorite.

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.
