Revisited Feb 22, 2012.
Much better feel, no blasting music, nice friendly service, rotating taps, drink local and get a DeLa Senne.
Finally made it to ML in St-Gilles, working in Etterbeek being only a stoneís throw away.
A more classical Belgian looking bar than its more modern Fontainas location which is not a bad thing.
Interior is clean with heavy wooden benches/tables and a good deal of classic Belgian comic books to keep oneself busy.
Beer selection is a little different than Fontainas, less draft, more bottles but the quality still shines and they are definitely supporting the Brussels breweries; Senne and Cantillon.
I was not too fond of the atmosphere, whoever was working - or at least playing DJ before his shift - kept pumping out this loud French-Belgian gangsta techno-rap that I think has no room in an establishment such as ML. Or maybe I just have shitty music tastes.
The other guy was not really busy, but his mind looked to be elsewhere and after asking him three times for the bottle selection he finally remembered me. Maybe a bad day, or maybe a day when the manager was not around. Too bad, because I really enjoy the quaint surroundings and the neighborhood.

St Gilles has a smaller, more personal ambiance than the Fontainas location. The service is decent, though impersonal. The selection is very strong, well curated. The valueís decent for draft beers and some bottles, though the prices for some of the rare sours will make your eyes water. I didnít try the food, but it looked tasty. Overall, a great place.

I have visited this cozy bar several times over the past 10 years. Itís a great place to have a few good Belgians, but itís off the beaten path. The barkeeps are quite friendly and helpful, unless the bar is very busy. The selection is outstanding, although it may be declining slightly, since the original owner sold the bar a year or so ago to invest in a new location called Delirium (better selection, but less ambience).

A great selection of geuze on draught as well as a great, if a little pricey, bottled beer list. Iíve had multiple draught Cantillonís here when Iíve visited and we also got the Biere Darbyste which was amazing. I havenít been to the new one yet but I can recommend this pub.

This is my first place I discovered couple of my favorite beers over 10 years ago. Back then I asked their suggestion and was always well advised. The folks there, they drink beers thatís for sure. This place can be easily crowded because it is just too small. but that is another of their charm. Itís far from being touristic and often , we find regular customers, mostly students and hipsters. The choice of beers served from tap is limited but vary from season to season. There is an amazing choice of bottles and sometimes we find some foreign exceptional brews. Thatís where I drunk some of the Stone Brewery masterpieces ! Anyway itís a nice place and always be on top for itís authentic Brussels charm.

This being the original Moeder Lambic, itís not as epic as the Fontainas location, but they have some good stuff as well. On my visit, they didnít even have a printed bottle list, so they invited me to the back to scour their selection, which is pretty solid but not as extensive as the other location. Taplist is also quite minimal compared to the other place, but they do have a few Cantillons on tap. Prices seem slightly better than the Fontainas location. Worth a visit, but I doubt youíll find much here that you canít find at the other place.

Great place in Brussels to have micro beers. period. Itís funny that even though itís not central, it almost always packed. Havenít tried the food, but it looked tasty!

Piý piccolino dellíaltro, molto carino. Possibilitŗ per chi ama i fumetti di leggere qualsiasi cosa a disposizione nel bar. Ottima selezione di birre anche se a volte mancano proprio quelle che si chiedono. Si possono mangiare formaggi e salumi ma, il formaggio te lo portano intero e te lo devi tagliare da solo... potevano inventarsi qualcosa di meglio ma, ovviamente se sei al TOP con le birre, qualcosíaltro dovrŗ essere tralasciano un pochino...questa Ť la mia opinione ovvio! Ultima cosa...manca un mený delle bottiglie...coa importantissima soprattutto se hai una cantina cosž fornita!

Visited here on my one-day Brussels trip. Located on walking distance from Cantillon, we stopped over here to have a few drinks. Decent selection of taps and bottles. They serve some pretty interesting vintage lambic over there and some bottles are even available for take-out. Very good prices and good and friendly service. Nice..
