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 wouldn’t rush back.

Visited during RBESG 2013 for the first time in some years. Surprised to see I hadn’t rated this place before. As has been remarked many times before, sometimes you can have a great time here. Other times not so good. Much can depend on Dirk’s mood. On this occasion he seemed to be in a more grumpy one, although mainly kept out of the way. Maybe the fact that we were a quite large party didn’t help. The draught list was pretty good, which is just as well as we weren’t allowed to order from the big or aged list. Not that I’m much into expensive aged beers anyway. I was later told that Dirk was feeling unwell so that may explain the resrticted choice. Anyway, have to score as I found it on this occasion. May well be back to much higher marks next time. The garden/patio seemed even more taken over by old crates and empties than I remember. Always unmissable on a visit to Antwep of course.

In februari 2014,na vele lovende verhalen, bezocht met 3 vrienden. Wat een tijdreis maak je als je in de huiskamer van de eigenaren binnenstapt. Welkom terug in de 20e eeuw. Huiselijk en erg vol is het binnen, zachte achtergrond muziek waardoor je als luidruchtige Hollanders snel de vooroordelen bevestigd van de Belgen. Er komen hier trouwens redlijk wat toeristen. De zitplaatsen zijn snel vergeven en staanplaatsen zijn er ook beperkt, tikkeltje oncomfortabel daardoor. De bierkaart is uniek met de vele bieren die al jaren in de kelder op een proever staan te wachten, dit is ook de belangrijkste reden om een bezoek te brengen aan dit café. Voor mij persoonlijk beste bierkelder waarschijnlijk wel ja, beste biercafe nee dat niet.

Despite the Monday to Saturday opening hours, closed the first time I went by. Luckily they had opened the next day, so I got to get into this mythical beerplace. This place isn’t like any other pub. Service is good, perhaps not the fastest, but friendly delivered by an older woman. Her husband spent the evening reading papers and complained some as he had to get up to do the dishes. A few cats walk around freely. Doesn’t feel like a pub, it is a place where people go to appreciate beer. There is no loud music, no rowdy crowds. Just two elderly proprietors, a few locals and the beerlovers. As for the selection... for Belgian beers it is good. Very good.

Place with a legendary reputation and does not fall short. Very small but was less crowded than many other central bars in Antwerp. Familial atmosphere and fantastic selection, close to being in someone’s home beer cellar. Place with real personality.

One of the best beer places in the world. You have to ask the "beer book" and choose something special.
