I was here during the Night of Great Thirst. They had Eylenbosch Kriek on tap and Eylenbosch Gueuze and Extra Faro in bottles for the event. Me and another guy asked to see the regular beer list and they they showed it to us. A really great list with lots of Lambics from all (or almost all) Lambic makers, some of them are quite rare. We enjoyed a bottle of 05 3 Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek and I took home two Selection Lambic bottles for 25E each as well as an 1984 Eylenbosch Gueuze (AMAZING!) for 10 or 15E. They even took us to their cellar which was a very interesting experience - loads and loads of Lambic bottles all over with an always-slightly-wet floor. Too bad about the very limited opening time, this place is great and should be visited by more beer lovers.

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.

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 it’s true that I’d 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.

Uno dei posti più caratteristici da andare a visitare, ottimo per i lambic invecchiati e per l’atmosfera veramente unica.Straordinario il festival della Grande Sete organizzato da loro

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.

WAAAUUWW. Insane bottle list. All the classics in various vintages at reasonable prices. BUT what maked my day was the atmosphere. Friendly hosts and locals. A great experience.

Un paradis pour les lambics lovers. endroit qui a une âme, café typique où se côtoient toutes les générations et qui a la particularité de n’être ouvert que le dimanche! Bues une Schaarbeek kriek et une Eylebosch geuze exceptionnelle. A faire au moins une fois!

It surprised me I never gave this pub a rating, although I’ve been going here for some years now. Great atmosphere, a typical ’Pajottenland’ bar full of vintage beer signs and stuff. The owners are very friendly people. Great selection of lambic beers, sometimes they have a special like a cask of Eylenbosch kriek ’89 on ’Day of the Kriek’. Value is good, vintage bottles have their prices. Recently I was there for ’Tour de Geuze’ and ’Day of the Kriek’ and the barbecue was awesome, organised by people from the area who make their own ’pensen’, typical white or black sausages (black pudding). On sunny days you can just get your beer in the bar and take a seat on the grass fields around, lovely!

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 can’t 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.
