This extremely friendly family run pub is a must visit. The limited hours and remote location can make this a challenge, but do it anyway. The 1984 Eylenbosch gueze is beyond description, and will not be available forever.

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.

I visited de Grote Dorst for the first time 3 years ago. Two weeks ago I visited it again. What seized my attention was the incredible list of lambic beers (some years ago maybe 20-something and now over 65!). A very good mix of local people and beer geeks. Compared to places in Brussels - which are sometimes indecently expensive - , this café offers very good value for money and is certainly worth taking the bus from Brussels center. The 2 brothers show that they have a lot of passion for geuze. They are truly well informed. Highly recommended!

From the moment I entered, suddenly I wanted to leave this place. It was Lifeless, it completely lacks in atmosphere. The list of lambic is very interesting but not as big as in other bars.

The ultimate lambic experience. Quiet local place in a beautiful village with friendly customers and staff/owner. Service is personalized and presentation is top notch. Great lambic selection at a reasonable price which is rare nowadays. The draught lambic (Girardin) was in amazing shape. I don’t think it can get better than this, I’ll go with a perfect score.

Wonderful old pub open on Sundays only after church.. The local marching band stopped in while here for some oompah music and singing (for free beer). Crazy beer and glass collection will make you drool and run out of pocket money fast. Good grub too. Run by Yves and Kurt Panneels and family...Fun place....

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.
