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 that’s for sure. This place can be easily crowded because it is just too small. but that is another of their charm. It’s 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. That’s where I drunk some of the Stone Brewery masterpieces ! Anyway it’s a nice place and always be on top for it’s authentic Brussels charm.

Visited on frequent occasions - Different beer selection than the one at Fontainas, but also very varied. Atmosphere is calmer, especially in the summer. Service is OK.

Myself and Loz visited here Saturday 17th December 2011, we had to wander the neighbourhood for a couple of hours as we had failed to take note of the 16:00 hours opening time. The beer list is very impressive and easily the best that I encountered on this visit, with many impressive rarities for those keen to seek out something a little different. Pricewise it was possibly a little on the steeper side, however if you choose something on tap then there were certainly a decent and interesting selection at very reasonable prices. The female member of bar staff was very knowledgeable, helpful and worked the bar really well, offering sound advice. We walked there and back and we were based in Molenbeek but it was a pleasant walk and the pub is an interesting part of town away from the tourist tat which drags some of the other Brussels establishments down a little. I really liked this bar, however maybe not quite as much as I was hoping. I suppose one fault that I found was that much like many of the other great beer cafes of the world its one failing is that for atmosphere and all round pub banter it just doesn’t work so well, if it could condense the atmosphere and warmth of the three alleway pubs in the centre of town then it would be a world beater on every count, sadly it just fails on the atmosphere rating.

les deux barbus de barman sont tout simplement parfait. ils savent ce qu’ils font et le font bien, les lundi dub au moeder moi je dis oui c’est entrainant sans être dérangeant. la soirée était calme donc les serveurs étaient au petit soins avec nous. pour ce qui est de la nourriture en comparaison au moeder fontainas il manque le lard et plus de salaison. en tout cas c’est l’endroit rêvé pour passer cet hiver l’endroit est cosy et chaleureux

Very enjoyable bar in a residential part of Brussels. Nice wood-panneled with lots of patio seating and great vibe. The tap selection is limited but very good. Bottle selection is excellent. Also has a very nice cheese with my beer. (Like Sebletitje, the night before, the bottle menu never came for me either...)

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 stone’s 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.

Can’t praise this place highly enough. Different feel from the newer Moeder Lambic, much more cosy and the terrace here is one of my favourite places in the world if the weather is nice. Great selection of bottles and taps. Cheese is brilliant too. Has lots more locals in than Fontainas which seems to be regularly full of beer tourists (naturally!). I wish this was my local.
