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 DJ’s 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.
It’s a good place but with a few more tweeks could be amazing. Thanks to Glenn of Alvinne for pointing this place out to me.

Fairly small and modern, 10 generally interesting taps at reasonable prices and a decent bottle list.

Great local pub in the Kortrijk City centre. Went there on a saturday afternoon around 3PM. Place is really cozy, but apparantly it’s 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 !

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 don’t 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 you’re staying in Kortrijk this might be your best option. The ambiance in here is kind of funny, like a student bar or something, but it’s OK. The staff was very capable. Worth popping by.

Came here during my journey back to Lille from westvleteren .. 2 aspects in this bar are above average .. The selection and the service ... About the selection anyone of us can say whatever he wants because always depends from own experience and knowledge but about service when you find behind the bar a man who knows his job his beers and he doesn’t mind to talk about everithing so what else do you want ..?! Maybe not a must for the Belgium standard but for sure a nice place if you are around here ..

Visited on Friday evening, March 22nd 2013 around 5.15pm.
In the centre of town a short 4 or 5 minute walk from the station, the Gainsbar has a couple of tables outside on the street.
Inside it is split over two levels, downstairs with the bar as you enter and upstairs which didn’t seem to be open - got the impression it may be a restaurant area (toilets are up here).
The decor carries a trendy/modern feel, multi coloured battenburg tiles, sunken floor area, micture of wooden chairs/tables and soft poofs, 6 or so tall stools positioned in front of the bar.
The place was pretty busy with a largely youngish crowd both inside and out.
6 beers on tap and a bottled list of around 100. See the chalk board on the left as you enter for specials and one off’s.
Good choice of Belgian stuff, lots of local micros, and the likes of Mikkeller Black on tap although I had hoped for something more interesting from Struise but just the easy to get stuff available in bottle.
Service was great here, at the bar during our visit (not sure if they have table staff later in the evening?). The bar man was happy to chat beer between serving and made suggestions for us.
A specialist beer bar in Belgium with a youngish feel to it - reccomended.
