The ABSOLUTE BEST experience I’ve ever had at a bar! ...despite the ridiculous hours. Vintage lambic list is incredible, perhaps only topped by Akkurat and maybe DHVL (but it’s close). Prices are probably the most reasonable in the whole country -- as of May 2013, Hommage was 45€, for example. Atmosphere is just wonderful, with mostly elderly locals comprising the clientele. We arrived early (around 9:40am; opening is 10am), and the owners’ parents greeted us shortly thereafter, inviting us in early. Both the owners and parents were extremely friendly and warm. Accessible by one bus (#128) from Gare du West -- make sure you’re in Belgium on a Sunday so you can visit this amazing place.

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.

Very nice and cosy bar. The selection of lambics is outstanding. Also some very rare beers. Prices are good, staff is very friendly. A must go!

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.

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 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.

It was hard getting there but it was really worth the effort. The opening hours aren’t that welcoming either but they got an incredible lineup of lambics. Some exclusive stuff and a great cuvée list. It is one of the absolutly coolest places I have visited and it has an amazing atmospere!

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!

Visited during Tour de Geuze 2013. Very, very charming place with a great history located in a tiny village – indeed looks lovely across the church. Very adorable. Atmosphere is top. Beers offer the full standard range of lambic brew’s which are always fun to drink. Prices for these are good. There is also rarer stuff, prices for which are slightly ridiculous I feel. Not much that I haven’t had before, probably very little new finds if you have been trying out lambic’s for some time. Or maybe I have just had more lambic’s than most & they do have a very large part of the existing range. Either way I would mainly recommend this place for its wonderful atmosphere & sense of history.
