Even better than its draft counterpart. I could have spent 500 euro here. The cheese pairings are fair priced and so are the drafts but the cellar brews can be pricey but they are outrageous. YOu name an old cantillion and you drink it. Staff is awesome. They know everything about lambics and serve it in the traditional way.

A nice place with wooden furniture and a small outdoor area. Not the same tap-selection as the sister-pub, in central Brussels, but the beer list is more impressive here. A place to visit when in Brussels.

Original location for moeder. Nicer than Fontainas with a great selection of lambics on draughts. Staff is very knowledgeable.

Definately nicer than the place at fontainas and in a much nicer neighborhood. Good selection on tap and very good on bottle. Unfortunately slow and unfriendly service on several occasions. Still I would come back for the beer..

Tiny bar with a rustic and studenty feel (and a nice selection of Franco-Belgian comic books…). The staff is usually very knowledgable and attentive, the food is artisanal Belgian cheeses and bread only -- and the beer selection (particularly bottled) is one of the best in a country beloved for its beers and beer cafes. Very close to perfect!

A great selection of geuze on draught as well as a great, if a little pricey, bottled beer list. I’ve had multiple draught Cantillon’s here when I’ve visited and we also got the Biere Darbyste which was amazing. I haven’t been to the new one yet but I can recommend this pub.

This is the original location for Moeder. The selection on draft is smaller but exquisite. Since the quality of selection rather than size is more important to me I did nit rate this location lower than the Fontinas location. If you are looking for a vast array of taps then try their other location.
This location has a great bottle selection. Many of the rare bottles are priced quite high and if they weren’t they would be on the list because the people that came in last week would have drank them. The high price insures they stick around and are available for the people that realize how special they are.
Service is excellent and all of the staff knew their selection very well.
It should be mentioned that Moeder is one of the very few "independent " bars in Belgium which means they do NOT take operations money or equipment from Belgium breweries. That means that they can and do carry anything and everything they want to carry without interference from Duvel Moortgadt or In Bev. E. The flip side of this is that they must charge higher prices for their beers. They are still a real bargain compared with US bars but European travelers used to what basically amounts to subsidized draft prices might be surprised. Independence has it’s price and in my opinion it’s worth it. Without attitudes like Moeders the really interesting micro crafts in Belgium would not have a Belgium audience.
