If you’re looking for geuze or lambic, this is THE place to go to. They have (possibly) the largest selection in the world of these beers, and even (diminishing) stocks from breweries/blenders that have been closed for years now. We’re talking real vintage stuff here. Only very few beer bars have lambic on tap (if they serve it at all!) - but here you’ll find it. Open 3-4 hours per week only (during and after Sunday service), so plan your visit. I for one intend to go back several times! Absolutely recommended.

Un lugar alucinante y mágico que me demuestra una vez más el daño que están haciendo las franquicias y las fabricaciones en serie. Atmósfera mágica, antigua, grandes cervezas lámbicas a precio más que razonable, y la parroquia del pueblo disfrutando. La pega el horario, solo Domingos por la mañana. Para disfrutar.

Just a gorgeous place to visit - kind of brings you back in time, a time where people used to gather for a beer in the pub across the church right after Sunday mass. Great selection of old Geuze beers, a place to relax and enjoy - dont forget to talk to the locals, they know everything about the gueze"steekers". A place definitely to enjoy and come back, even though it opens only 3hrs a week.

Credo uno dei pochi, se non l’unico, lambic pub al mondo. Ambiente piccolo ma carino e personale gentile e disponibile. Selezione importante e bottiglie vintage.

In de verzekering tegen de grote dorst, what can you say about this place? For me not so much as I rarely could remember the name - it’s quite a mouthful! I just usually referred to that famous Belgian lambic place only open on Sundays. A very cool local pub just by the church and the cemetary. Friendly service with great staff, great lambic selection as well as other interesting stuff. I loved the dried hops hanging from the rafters and this place is a once in a lifetime must visit locale. I’m thankful I got the chance to take part in an amazing tasting there.

Bit odd living 15min away and never went, but this was solved on the Aug 15th, 2015 thanks to Omgrich. A place with a soul and a true gem of honest business dedicated to geuze culture, little village in the middle of Pajjotenland. Local characters that are out of a FC DeKampioenen episode. Great selection of beers, plenty of WW1 memorabilia. The kind of stop you can dream of recreating outside Belgium - hint the US - but will fail trying to achieve it.
