Countbeer  (252) Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, Netherlands | July 27, 2010| Updated June 5, 2011
Just outside the centre of Antwerp you can find this small but (full)filled café. There’s room for just some people (I guess there’s about 5 tables and some places at the bar). The beer selection is good with a broad selection of Belgian beers. The highlights: all the Westvleteren beers from different years as well as Chimay and other Belgian superstar beers. The café is very small but cozy, old and fully decorated with beer-memorabilia. You can look into one of the rooms were a large amount of their beers are stalled, make you thirsty… If you are ever to visit Antwerp, you definitely have to bring this café a visit!

For an afternoon, I felt that I had died and gone to beer bar heaven. This place is run by an older couple, who have filled the place with love and the love of beer. The selection was pretty amazing, and it was completely peaceful here. Even though it was a fairly busy afternoon, the people in this place were having conversations at a polite level, while classical music played softly in the background. We had the pleasure of sitting in the garden, where we watched the owner read the newspaper with a magnifying glass. When we told him we were on our honeymoon, he gave us a bottle of Stille Nacht Reserve 2005 as a gift. We sat and drank delicious beers all afternoon at this hidden treasure in Antwerp. If I ever own a bar someday, I would very much like it to be like this.

The bar itself... First time we came there... At the outside it’s like... omfg... At the inside, the first looks were good (well I love that "kitch"-look), it was a bit unordered, and maybe a couple little things could have been better, but I loved the atmosphere inside, and also outside, close to the "beer-looking-window" we had a seat. We had some very good beers, the prices were ok, cause the years you can chose of are insane (beers from 30 years old are possible). Edit: Forgot to change my points for this one... allready visited this bar a decent amount of times. The selection is ofcourse still great, but I’m getting a bit tired of the prices for some beers, and the service you get over there for the money you are spending. Also, if you don’t show your face on a regular base, it looks like they don’t really care anymore about the customers. Dirk never was really enjoyable at any of the times we have been there. His wife does her best, and she is ok. What was at first some kind of beer-heaven for me, getting a bit of a dissapointment more and more. Also more and more groups of students that comes one time, and with a lot of noise, to be "at the best bar"... The hype, also cause of this site, is ruining the bar at bit, I think. Still very decent ofcourse, and worth a visite when in Belgium. But only cause the selection, and (if you like those cosy) looks. If I read at the right side "Staff, Very Friendly and helpful", I wish I could change that to average max. Even not bothering anymore about updating the beer-card. About half the times the beers we order aren’t there anymore.

At first the Kulminator looks a bit shabby from the outside. The interior could do with a overhaul as well since it seems that the last major overhaul was done in the 1960’s. On the other hand, this is what gives the Kulminator its distinct atmosphere. The staff (owners) are very friendly and leave the folks to enjoy their beer. Even if you order just one beer and stay for two hours or more, they don’t come up to you to ask you if you want another drink. I like this since this is a place to sit down, relax and enjoy your beer in a relaxed atmosphere without annoying, over assertive staff. The choice of classical music in the background is excellent as well, it really contributes to the relaxed atmosphere. Ofcourse the selection of beer they offer is overwhelming. Whenever I am in Antwerp, I always try to visit the Kulminator and have a beer or two. This place really deserves its worldwide reputation as one of the greatest beer cafes.

Awesome place, like stepping into somebody’s living room, with just a barcounter added to it. Marvellous selection of beers, both new and old, though some of the old stuff seems to be sold out. Lovely owners, who really treat you well. As for food not a very big selection, but as for the cheeseselection the prices are really not much for a huge amount of cheese.

This place is utterly dope. The bottle selection is unreal, and to top it off they have their own Westvleteren Menu that consists of Westys from ten years ago to now. Went here last summer, and was extremely impressed. We ordered a bunch of lambics, krieks, gueuzes all from different years. Don’t go there for food though because all they have to offer is two slices of wonder-bread which i thought was very cool that this place can get away with that. There was an elderly lady serving us (defiantly the owner) who wasn’t too keen on talking to us but she was nice enough to show us the beer cellar. As we were there, a local was upset to the fact that ’Americans come here and steal all the good beer". Overall, this place has a world-class beer selection with a crazy beer ambiance. A MUST GO!

Very ambient with all the breweriana, beer signs, the cats, the cramped space and the low volume music allowing for normal conversation. We were a party of four and asked to get a glass each with every beer we tried and it was no problem. Very good service from Leen, and she spoke decent English too. Funny to see how Leen and Dirk work, with Leen doing a lot and Dirk not that much, and the constantly bitter expression on Dirk’s face. Excentric guy to say the least, but that’s just adds up to how special this place is. It’s worth a detour, and well, Antwerpen is not so bad to spend a few days in.
