My favorite place in Kortrijk, located in the center, some 3 minutes from the main square and 5 minutes from the train station. 10 taps, I think 3-4 are reserved for Guests and the rest are from local breweries. Small 0.16l and 0.33l options so itís nice for tasting. Really nice guest beer on tap can be found here, Mikkeller for example. Some 120+ bottles, also a lot of local smaller breweries, lots of de Struise. No InBev as they say :) The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, with nice suggestions and serving in proper glassware. The place is rather small, some 7-8 tables and the bar, rather low light, a bit of beer soaked wood atmosphere, free WiFi. Usually itís not really crowded except weekend evening. Music on vinyl, rock mostly, Iíve heard Dean Martin also and some Iíd call usual hipster music which is to be expected from a beergeek bar like this. Also good source of information for beer related events in the area. Iíve been coming here every week while in Kortrijk, bringing my colleagues with me and hopefully Iíll return someday.

Nice little bar in Kortrijk. 10 taps, some guest taps- quite good selection of interesting beers. Also nice bottle selection, above 100- mostly Belgian but also some "hop beers"- If you arre in Kortrijk its worth a visit

Nice cool modern bar in the centre ideal for Cantillon; De Dolle and 3 Fonteine. I like the late hours on the weekend and the choice of music by DJís was commendable. It gets very busy and is clearly a popular destination for beer geeks. The beer choice is good. I enjoyed a Struise Pannepot Reserva and many lambics were consumed. I was also happy to find De Dolle. It is a very loud and modern beer bar. Itís a good place but with a few more tweeks could be amazing. Thanks to Glenn of Alvinne for pointing this place out to me.

Great local pub in the Kortrijk City centre. Went there on a saturday afternoon around 3PM. Place is really cozy, but apparantly itís mainly in the evening that this place gets crowded and that you get a good vibe. Bartender was really friendly, real beergeek. Only served beer at the bar. But as we ordered some special stuff, he immediatly recommended the ACBF in a few weeks at Bierhalle Deconinck. Value is very decent: Oerbier Reserva at 7 euro, Hanssens Oudbeitje at 6 euro... And proper glassware! I love it! Overall a really nice place to hang out!

Nice bar in the center of the down. Good selection of beer from Belgium and some others countries like Danemark (Mikkeller) and Holland (De Molen), the price is also nice ! The menu is really nice with really good price (the x-mas beer selection was really relevant). About the tap there is 6 taps with classical belgium and local pils as Bokor but 2 craft taps like Struise, De Molen... The place is clean and really nice good decoration. And also good music. The people inside are calm and the place is not noisy, and the music is really great oldies rock and pop with vintage vinyls !

kraddel  (219) some beerplace , Belgium | October 8, 2014
Nice bar , trendy atmosphere . Pretty clear that there is passion in the house . Selection is basic, but nice . Even some foreign beers ! Service was not capable of pouring the beer , which was one of the onlh downsides here . I have the feeling the rotating drafts are normally better ( heard things like hopping frog ) thsn the gulden spoor that was on now . Will return . Nice place , but expected more of this

A solid bar. They donít have any outrageous offerings but they do have all the classics, and at very good prices. The bottle list includes Alvinne, Struise, a few vintages of Orval, Mikkeller, De Molen, etc. If youíre staying in Kortrijk this might be your best option. The ambiance in here is kind of funny, like a student bar or something, but itís OK. The staff was very capable. Worth popping by.
