Visited on a rainy November evening, since we got pretty early place was almost empty when we came in. However, soon enough all the tables were full. Ambiance was cozy, it felt we were visiting someone at their home. Owners working there were nice. Decent tap selection, but highlight was of course the bottle list. Aged beers are the thing here, had 26 yo Oerbier and 10 yo Westmalle Tripel. Great place and a unique experience.

Very nice, great selection, friendly staff. The place has *a lot* of Trapist beers from different years, starting with reasonably priced new-ish ones to very expensive and very old ones. Also very nice that all the guests were very talkative. Not sure that’s the case always or if we were just lucky this time.

Kulminator finslly made it here after a long day in Gent & Antwerp. Easy to find with the big yellow 70s KULMINATOR sign out front. Small space with a tiny green terrace in back that just oozes character. Cool modern beers on tap and aged Belgians plus the best of the regulars(though it skewed high-ABV when I went). Board games to play with are s nice touch. Digging in to the menu you can find some fantastic decades old beers for great prices, the well known breweries have high prices but the unpopular ones or those flying under the radar have accessible prices. Great place easily living up to the hype, someday I’d love to come in a group and really take advantage of their extensive cellars. 90+ in many ways this is the bar that time forgot, wonderfully so.  Oh, looking at ratings the vintage bottles tend to be a crapshoot but I got lucky I guess.

Mandatory for anyone who visits Antwerp. First the Kulminator, then the Grote Markt and the onze lieve vrouw cathedral!

The place looks like some kind of messy, beer memorablia filled living room. It’s been operated by Dirk and Leen for 41 years now. Leen does the serving and is really friendly, Dirk can be friendly, but also a bit grumpy. He gets the beers from the cellar, so when he’s not in the mood you might have to wait some time. The beer selection is awesome, with lots of Belgian rarities and a vast selection of vintages. Mostly reasonably priced, sometimes a bit too expensive. This place really is one of a kind. Only downside are the annoying fruitflies that live there by the millions.

Perhaps the only place I’ll ever give 100 to. Little old quirky place . Not the zoo that Delirium can be and a way better selection of beers. This place is so good it makes me want to stay in Antwerp rather than Brussels the next time I’m in Belgium .

How do you not give the best beer bar in the world a perfect score? Some complain about slow service...and maybe a weird atmosphere (I was certainly taken aback at first). But after drinking an astounding line-up of beer..I came to realise that it was all part of the experience. I can’t wait to come back again some day.
