This is one of the most interesting bars Iíve been to. Make sure you donít sit in the seat that is perpetually reserved. Youíll see it, all lonely by a stack of junk mail and assorted curios.

Was here from opening to closing. Fantastic selection! Really gret to try the old vintages of Orvall and Westmalle. Sat in the back yard with cats running around and great service from Leen. Also tried the really nice cheese and sausage plate. I hope to come back.

Ok ok here we are!!! In my opinion this is the perfection of beerbars. For sure the best place ever visited. I can say a lot but iíll not,you must obviously be there to understand what i mean. Excellent ambianse,super cozy,beerlist menu over 700+ you will spent at least 30í to read the whole list. Extra large fridge with diamonds even from 1980..

My favourite place in Belgium! What I like the most about this place is the ííPassioníí of the owners about the beer. In addition to the amazing selection of the beers, I love the ambiance and the classical music. I love that all local and foreigner customers easily talk to each other about the beers. I like to watch what other people (beer nerds) are ordering. Finally I like their old unique beer openers : -)

Visited the place twice with a couple of my best friends. The first time, we came here a bit by surprise. Some people told us about the beer book, which convinced us immediately. A couple of years later, this place was our number one spot to visit during a small trip to Antwerp. From the outside, itís just plain nothing. But inside, itís magical. With plants growing everywhere and the chamber music on the background, this is quite an A-typical spot. But yet, it is so cozy and traditional in all its sense. The time stops within the Kulminators walls. Here, it is just mere enjoyment and relaxation. Maybe the most tantric beer experience Iíve ever had. This place is absolutely a gem. Visit it before itís over. You donít want to go to those hip new beer gardens, do you?

The bar with itís own atmosphere, itís very hard to explain, because you must visit it to understand. Wonderful choice of beer.

To me, the Kulminator was as close to beer heaven as any place on Earth. Visited it often years ago. The atmosphere is kind of cosy and very íold schoolí, but the important thing is of course the phone book-like menu boasting hundreds of vintage beers, sometimes from breweries that do not even exist anymore; it reads as a catalogue of Belgian brewing history. Be careful with what you select, though, we all know that most beers are not suitable for years of cellaring. Some very interesting foreign vintages too, mainly English and German. Service is okay, the lady is correct and competent though a bit standoffish, even towards customers that have been coming here for years; her husband on the other hand is not the friendliest guy around and does not always bother to find your beer if he does not consider you worthy of it, I have the impression. Nevertheless a very important place from which I always leave completely relaxed and satisfied. Price vary from reasonable to high. Offers some basic cold foods too, some of which are different from what you expect to find. When you go there, be sure to have a look through the window behind which dozens of old bottles are stored and displayed.
