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 cafť. Voor mij persoonlijk beste bierkelder waarschijnlijk wel ja, beste biercafe nee dat niet.

Visited October 2011, a month before joining ratebeer, as a novice beergeek. Owners were grumpy and werenít too keen on our indecisiveness. Great selection though and Iím sure that the next visit would be nicer and that I wouldnít waste my time and money trying to score old bottles.

Visited a couple times over the past few years during trips to Belgium. The main reason to visit Kulminator is for the vintage bottle list which contains numerous beers you probably wonít find anywhere else though most of the highly sought after beers are long gone. Iím not a huge fan of the atmosphere, which feels like drinking in my grandmaís living room, or the service, which can be very slow to nonexistent at times. Depending on how Dirk is feeling (and Iíve never once seen him happy) you may or may not be able to order bottles from the cellar. While still a good bar and a worthwhile stop, I think that Kulminatorís best days are behind it.

When youíre in Antwerp, most certainly worth a visit. Extensive (vintage) beer list. knowledgeable grumpy owner and his lovely wife who tries her best to give you a good time. Great place. Update: Perhaps this place is past its peak by now... Time to retire?

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.
