Visited in October 2012.

This was in the middle of a long day of bar hopping around Antwerpen with tour guide Matt Rooney (who makes an excellent tour guide by the way). It was here that we ran into two people that we ended up hanging out with for the rest of the evening. One of those guys was this crazy German bastard named Uli who blends lambic and does a pretty good job of it. The other guy was an aussie living in Portland who spends most of this time on beeradvocate. The company was good. The service was passable, especially for Belgium. It was very hands off. We got our drinks at the bar and carried them to one of the tables. Luckily they do flights here. The beers are all pretty mediocre with the blonde being the best of the bunch (in my opinion, clearly not in the rest of Ratebeerís opinion as evidenced by the low score) and the worst being the Nen Bangelijke. Prices were high, naturally. Aside from the company I think the best part of the place is the layout of the building. Itís very open and has a nice bar in the back. There is a large staircase going down to the bathrooms. Over all itís a nice set up, they just need to make better beer. Canít comment on the food as we didnít eat anything.

Would I return here? Probably not if I was going out of my way for it but Antwerpen is a beautiful town and there are some good bars here as well as plenty of other sites to see. I suspect that Iíll at least be in the area again sometime and will probably stop in for some ticks.

Fairly large brewpub in the southern part of town. Wasnít crowded, just took a seat at one of the tables near the bar. Three house beers on tap at the time, none were very good, but I guess they were alright. Not someplace Iíd need to go back to.

Visited here 4-5 years ago. Large converted warehouse type building, smart and stylish. Beers were fine without being exceptional, considered visiting again on Friday 18th March 2011 but decided against it and went elsewhere.

Maybe I was on a bad day... However: 3 horrible brews. Stay away.

Very large place that was almost empty at lunch hour on a saturday. Remarkably dull and unclean beers coming from an apparently very clean and modern brewpub. Still a rather recent place, a bit out of the way, perhaps a 25 minutes from the Kulminator and ultimately not really worth the detour.

Antwerpens only brewpub is located within walking distance from the city centre. A large and modern hall-like brewhouse with nothing else than three of their own beers on offer. No other guests than us at lunch time, and before the other Norwegians arrived. Friendly and informative bartender. Their beers are ok, without further excitements. In nice weather, as it was on this particular Friday, it is great to walk along the Sint-Michlelskaai back to Antwerpís centre (visited, 29.04.2011).

Well worth the effort of getting down too. We used the underground and bus system to get here, the tram to get back to the station area, to far to walk on a really crisp, windy, cold Sunday afternoon in March 2010. Modern with that old feel you get when the designers leave the original walls up but change almost everything else. This old warehouse houses a modern brewery, kettles at the front, fermenting vessels to the rear, all clearly visible from where ever you sit. I thought the place was classy and my wife enjoyed it too. Upstairs wasnít open, but I popped up to see, looked just as impressive as ground level did. We were the first customers and I had all four of their beers over the course of our stay, my wife two, each was served beautifully and promptly. The blonde was the pick of the bunch in my eyes, the winter brew coming second. They sold huge bottles to take out, they looked great, but were a bit expensive. The place slowly began to fill with diners and we left to continue or tour of the city using the difficult to work out transport system.

Lovely open interior with wooden beams and a skylight letting in natural light. 3 of their own beers on tap, reasonably priced. A nice surprise after the reviews below. There are tables and chairs outside now and free wifi

This would be more of a destination if it were (a) nearer to the center or (b) made more interesting beers. Sadly itís a long hike for a couple of very safe, decidedly boring beers. Worth mentioning that the atmosphere is nice enough -- exposed brick, candlelight, shiny brewkit -- and that food appears to be the main thing.

Visited this modern brewpub in an old warehouse near the Schelde river in september 2006. Mediocre beers, passive but not unfriendly staff. Just off the tourist track. Not worth a detour.
