Finally made it to the infamous Kulminator and found it even weirder than expected.... Old-school Belgian cafe interior inside. They had an interesting tap list and yes a crazy-looking bottle menu at very good prices. However the service was very slow indeed and we were only "allowed" to order of the bottle list a couple of times. Thankfully we still managed to try some old lambic & trappist offerings that were well-priced. An odd experience indeed, but worth it at least once. I wouldnít rush back.

Amazing place. Selection of "old" beer is exceptional. So many unique beers that it is more or less impossible to match anywhere. Service from Leen is friendly and competent, Dirk lurking behind the bar, valuing the customers and deciding whether certain beers are available. I kinda like that. The atmosphere is cozy with the cats running around. The front looks horrible though.

Resistance is futile. Just go with the flow and take a seat, nod at the proprietors, and wait to be served whilst being reasonably submissive. Try and find a beer menu - itís like a book - and wait until approached. Eventually the atmosphere will warm up and you will feel part of the atmospheric experience. Check out the beer cellar through a window, try and find a beer from a significant year, and just be happy you are experiencing a part of beer history. Best bar in the world.

Best pub Iíve been to. Great atmosphere, friendly owners and a mind blowing catalogue of really special, rare and aged beers, both on tap as bottle.

A review without rose-tinted spectacles... Ambience: In the front itís a bit dank and smelly. The back patio is a bit less ístuffyí. Chamber music in the background is not my thing. Itís quite dirty and doesnít seem very hygienic. Service: The lady told me it would take 5 minutes to get my beer, thatís ok. The fact that it took 25 minutes wasnít ok. Selection: Geared towards aged beers. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so itís a gamble. Possibly an expensive one. Thereís a good choice of Lambic. If you take away the aged beers then the selection is not so great. Value: Prices seem ok. Many beers are around Ä3.50.

Visited on our recent trip to Europe. We stopped in for a couple of beers would plan to go back for a longer visit in the future. Old school looking bar inside with random seating both in and outside. We sat outside that had a clear cover over us where the local cat sat above us. It lives up to its outstanding list of beers that comes in a large beer bible that weighs 5 pounds. One of the largest selections (not quite the best) that Iíve ever seen. The service was great as the staff greeted us immediately and provided suggestions on where to sit and what was available. Drank vintage Rodenbach that was still holding its own. The ambiance was very laid back with its share of locals and pockets of beer nerds from other countries. Overall, lives up to its reputation on selection, price and service. The location is not readily accessible by everyone but worth the 45 minutes drive North from Brussels if you are willing to drive. Plan to visit again on a future trip to Belgium.

We visited Kulminator last year in our trip to Antwerp. Since you cross the door there is a feeling that you are in a special place. The interior is nothing like the modern beer bars, this place is part of history. Full of beer lovers from all around the world. Their vintage bottle list is endless and reasonably priced. We had a lovely evening in the backyard terrace.

Best beer pub in Europe. Unlimited selection of beers, mostly Europeans, many vintage ones, and most importantly not expensive. Friendly owners, great atmosphere.
