Fantastic selection of Belgian & foreign beers and incredibly helpful barman who is a real beer enthusiast. Went in the moning when I was the only customer. One of the best bars I have been to.

Incredible selection of belgian draughts. The place is lacking the ambience of many other good beer bars.

Clean lambic bar. Lots of beer selection, with some very nice lambics. If you like sour beers, definitely hit this spot.

A very nice place in the city, away from the beaten path of tourists. The have 46 beers on tap. And some very nice ones too. They have 140+ bottles as well. The service and advice are top class. The food is just snacks but they will do between beers. A great place.

Very handy to have another option close to Zuid station - at least, close enough to make popping up for a quick couple in an hour or two gap between changing trains (the main reason Iím usually in Brussels to be honest). The range of lambics on cask at reasonable prices (e.g. 3 euro for Cantillon Lambic) is a big plus. As is the range of interesting guests beers on tap. I didnít have to resort to looking at the bottles list, which is pretty rare for me in Belgium these days. Cuvee De Ranke on tap was a special treat, although not cheap at 5 euro a pop. Decor is a bit modern for my taste and certainly not as cosy as the old place. The trio of trampy alkies staggering in to the launderette right next door but stopping for a piss on the pavement outside first (female member of the party included) , within a couple of metres of where we were sitting, didnít exactly enhance the ambience. Food is snacky - the cheese platter was very good but not cheap at 9 euro. Despite a few quibbles I couldnít imagine visiting Brussels without hitting this place - one of the few bars in town I could pretty much be guaranteed a scoop or two. And multi-tap establishments with varying interesting guest beers (some from overseas) are very rare in Belgium.

Only had an hour or so to spend, because I was on a business trip with two colleagues. But they were impressed, even not being a beer drinker, and so was I. Slowish but very knowledgeable service by the owner in near perfect Dutch, lovely lambics from cask, and fairly close to the train station. A little bit expensive, but that is forgettable in this temple devoted to lambic. Iíll be back, and I hope I have more time then to fully appreciate this place.

Visited March 17. Excellent choice of beers. We came as their lambic festival selection was coming to an end. But still five lambics on cask. Very nice service from both the waiter and the manager. When we asked about the funny spanish glas thing on the shelf, we were aksed if we would try. YES. A very funny and special way to drink lambic.

Checked out Moeder on my latest Brussels trip, turned out to be one of the highlights for sure. Located about 2 blocks from the Pissing Boy, so this is a great combo stop. Inside is very new, gleaming wood and metal, a very modern and trendy spot. The beer list consists of about 40ish taps. They are separated nicely on a menu by style and bitterness level. They also have 10 guests tap, and at this time were all Christmas beers. They have a separate cellar list that that includes about 30 aged lambics. They have regular Cantillonís, not regulars like fou founne and mamouche, then really old beers like a 2000 Cam De Lambiek. On a special page they have 4 other rare beers listed at astronomical prices, like LH12 for 180, and Millenium for 250. As a bonus if you ask nicely they will let you buy some of the cellar beers to go. The servers speak decent English and are very knowledgable about the beers, able to give detailed descriptions of all offerings. We even got a 5 minute story the Zwanze 2010 we ordered, including why and how it was brewed, and the inside jokes on the bottle.
If you are looking for a chill place with rare and exclusive beers this is a must stop.

Loved this place, when we first arrived, we werenít sure whether we had found the right place because it looked a bit like a theatre cafť (at least to me it did). Looks very modern, nothing like a traditional Belgian bar, once we settled, we warmed up to it. There was still some traditional atmosphere to the place. The waitress came up to us and at first we thought she came to get our orders but she came to ask what kind of beers we liked so that she could make suggestions. I was really surprised by this, never saw this before, very nice, outstanding service. She didnít speak much Dutch but she spoke English fluently. We were given malt as snacks, which turned out to be surprisingly delicious. There were about +/- 46 taps, no macro stuff, all of the choices being either very good or amazing. Donít think that you will find anything like that anywhere else in Belgium. There was a bottle list but the bottles were priced outrageously, going up to 250 euros but with so many outstanding draft options, that is not really a problem. Didnít eat there, the food list didnít look all to impressive but they seemed to have some stuff prepared with Cantillon. Overall, amazing place that I am sure many beer geeks will love. /// I have been back a couple of times & liking this place even more because there are always amazing foreign beers available on tap, a rarity in Belgium. /// Keeping the previous review but I want to add to it that whilst the quality of draft is still the best ever Ė the service can be sometimes a bit less stellar these days compared to previously. Plus they very clearly give way too small pours to maximize profit which makes sense financially for them but often leads to you paying like 5 euro for 15 cl. which is a bit steep. Looks weird because you get a half full glass which usually not the idea when you ask for a glass. Some of the bottles can be pricey to say the least. Still some exiting things are in the horizonÖ
