I finally got around to visiting this lambic mecca. The best thing to do is to get the bus their and back, which is good value and fairly quick. The place is rather small and has a traditional feel to it with plenty of brewery/lambic paraphernalia kicking about. The beer selection is rather special with plenty of old lambic at rather reasonable prices. Yes itís true that Iíd tried a lot of it before, but having it all in one place at this price is great. Even though the place was very busy the service was still very good. I urge any lambic-lover to make the journey.

We went on a Sunday morning approximately one hour after opening and left 30 minutes after the closing time. Located in a small village not too far from Brussells and openened only a couple hours a week on Sunday. We were lucky enough to have a seat as it was quite crowded. More than that, we had a seat at the same table than the famous Uli. We were the only foreigners in the place, everybody else seemed to be locals. Superb ambiance. Cozy, well decorated, not too lound and kind of "out of time". Service was a little slow, but super friendly and they were serving the beers exactly as it should be (good temperature, nice presentation, carely poured, etc.). One of the owner sat at our table when the place became less crowded and it was fun to discuss with him. Selection is awesome for any lambic lover, including 5 unblended lambic on cask and a huge bottle list, including some pretty nice and rare vintage lambics. Some price on vintage bottles are high, but most are extremely reasonable and some are even dirt cheap. I dream of having a place like that one street away from my home. The is a lambic love paradise and it just became my highest rated place ever. Magical!

My favorite place in Belgium so far, possibly in the world. A pub that is literally opened 4 hours a week in the middle of a tiny village in rural Belgium. The inside of the pub itself is beautiful, very cozy atmosphere with tons of retro belgian beer memorabilia. The selection is outrageous, they had 5 unblended lambics on tap when we were there, and a very nice cellar full of vintage bottles. The prices are quite reasonable, even some of the vintage choices are quite accessible. Despite the place being quite full and full of locals the staff was quite friendly and helpful. They had 3 fonteinen cheese to snack on. I want to retire and live up the street from here.

This place is truly something special, hided in the outskirts of Brussels in Eizeringen this place only opens for 3 to 4 hours a week after Church on the Sunday. The ambiance is perfect, quiet and at time fun and upbeat. Sometimes some improv brass/jazz offs. Service can not be beaten here, they clearly do not re this place for profit or gains but from true love of beer. Attention to deal is everything from cellaring these amazing beers, to serving them! Noticing when we had poured the last of one bottle and preparing the next to be served. Selection is unbelievable so many world class breweries. Food they only served a Gueuze cheese when we were there but it was exquisite. Value i think the prices were extremely fair - They were charging 1 euro more for each year old vintage of the Lou Pepe Kriek!!!! Bargain Overall this is a place to come and reflect on amazing beers with like minded people.

Great but slightly strange place. I had the misfortune of turning up with a hangover so probably couldnít enjoy it as much as I would have liked. Comfortable and with good service and of course the selection is tough to beat. From Brussels itís just one bus ride, but it does take about an hour. Worth it though.

Nice old Lambicland boozer with crazy hours, as you know. The owners were very kind and friendly. Not geeky, but just doing this like they always have. Has to be one of the 2 or 3 best selections of lambic in the world. Not much else, mind you. Prices are quite fair compared to other places. If you want rare, you pay for it, but there were many things we had not tried for very reasonable prices. Fantastic place to visit. Worth the trip in every respect.

Incredible selection!! Never seen so many old and rare lambics. Reach the place by bus and the hours are a little bit odd but you canít go to Belgium without visit this bar. Defenetly worth the visit, will come back for sure, next time with the car! One Of the best beer Bar in belgium And in the world.

It was hard getting there but it was really worth the effort. The opening hours arenít that welcoming either but they got an incredible lineup of lambics. Some exclusive stuff and a great cuvťe list. It is one of the absolutly coolest places I have visited and it has an amazing atmospere!
