The Insurance Against Great Thirst demands some planning ahead, because of those limited hours. It’s especially nice for sharing a Sunday lambic before heading off elsewhere for lunch, like the Rare Vos in nearby Schepdaal. The attraction here is the selection of bottled gueuze and other lambics, stored and served perfectly. All the serious ones are here: Boon, Cantillon, De Cam, Drie Fonteinen, Girardin, Hanssens, Lindemans (Cuvee Rene only!), Mort Subite, Oud Beersel, plus the occasional surprise. This is also where you might find one of those elusive lambic-serving baskets for sale. For any lambic-lover touring Pajottenland, here is your pilgrimage.

Very authentic lambic café filled with locals having a lambic or a kriek after the mass. Great beer list at affordable prices. More to come, promised the landlady. Worth a detour on a sunday morning.

Pretty awesome experience to cram in with all the local over 60s in their Sunday best for a gueuze or two. Girardin lambik and kriekenlambiek plus every good gueuze and kriek in current production and a couple that aren’t. The bus trip from Brussels goes past both Belle Vue and Eylenbosch. On one hand it’s a shame it doesn’t open more frequently, but it does guarantee a good crowd. Do it.

This is really a hidden gem and has loads of charm. The weather was great so we could sit outside in the sun watching the village church and drink lambic. The place was fairly quiet until church ended and churchgoers were ready for the more amusing part of their morning. It’s best to arrive before church ends, if you want a table. The service was really friendly and knew their beers. The selection of lambics is very good, although they cannot compete with the best bars. Great place for a relaxed Sunday morning.

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 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! / Update: I went back for the Night of the Great Thirst which is the most amazing beer Festival I ever went too. Only lambics (including some great bottles), great ambiance and perfectly organized. I will be back someday. We also went back on Sunday after Night of the Great Thirst and, again, we had an amazing time. This is the best beer place I have ever been to and I would be here every Sunday should I live in the area.

Wow, what a genuine place this is!
A very cosy, real and honest Lambic bar (if I may call it that).
I almost get the feeling that DHVL is somewhat like a tourist trap.
The prices are not even that high for rare bottles at this place, specially compared to DHVL and Moeder Lambic Fontainas.
Still a 2007 Hommage is €45 and Framboos was €75 (sold out appearantly). Allagash (!) stuff only €10 as some other harder to find beers are between €10 and €40...
Most expensive I saw on the vintage list was the Eylenbosch 1984 Geuze for €110...
Drafts are normally priced between €2.50 and €3
Very friendly and good service!
Can’t say it enough, super place, true pajotten cafe! Perfect vibe! Almost flawless!
Best place one can go for Lambic!
True to the core!

Great but slightly strange place. I had the misfortune of turning up with a hangover so probably couldn’t 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 it’s just one bus ride, but it does take about an hour. Worth it though.

One of the owners of this place came out on a Monday to let me see this place and pick out some lambics. Very amazong of him to do so. The place is a cool, just what you imagine a Belgian countryside bar across the street from a church would be like. all the good lambics are here and some rarities you wont find anywhere else. Got a lambic basket as a gift and some old Eylenbosch labels and invoice.
