An absolute GEM. A hidden treasure in a small city that is already worth visiting, not only for beerpurposes. Hard to find, the hours vary alot because the owner opens his bar when you ring the bell (after dinnertime). Funny interior with cafetarialike tables and chairs, but with a natural cosiness. Great beerlist, many surprises and incredibly low prices. As soon as the evening continued, the place was packed with lots of youngsters. A mustvisit when in Belgium, donít miss it.

Terrific place just near the center of Mechelen. Long and narrow, lots of bits and bobs hanging from the ceiling. Looks well-worn and lived-in. Friendly and helpful staff. Can get smoky, which is the only negative. Beer list is extensive, and although a few beers were out, they had all the Trappists (yes, all) at amazing prices (best Iíve seen in Belgium). Definitely worth going far out of your way to visit.

A cozy place with the most extensive beer menu I have come across. Well organised beer menu and an excellent selection of different beer styles, vintages and beers from other countries. The best part is the PRICE OF THE BEERS. Its unbelievable. never had beers so cheap in a bar in Belgium. Well worth a visit for a beer lover when in Mechelen.

A pub specialized in large bottles. Still has some beers you never heard of it. Very small pub, the only problem is the opening hours. Not always sure if it is open or not

Really great prices here - opening seems a bit random, was about 20:15 when we got in. The owner was cool, like a quiet beer santa. Westvleteren at realistic prices, and a great selection in general - well worth a visit!

Gerard, the owner, is a walking encyclopedia. The ambiance is that of an old-style Flemish pub. Beer menu is extensive, but pretty local (Belgian beer aplenty). Only open after 8 PM, so not overly touristy.

Better selection than it seems. You can get hold of vintage bottles of gueuze etc. that isnít on the menu. Place is nasty in a nice way, staff is friendly and a visit is highly reccomended.Only downside is that itís facing an annoying nightclub.

Though it takes a while at times to actually get what youíve ordered, Den Stille has quite an awesome selection of beers and is a must visit for any serious taster.

Den Stillen has a huge selection of beer at very reasonable prices, perhaps itís the child labour Ė we were served by a nine year old who was still working when we left at midnight!
