Ambiance of the place is really unique. So is the selection. I enjoyed there mine Westvleteren 12 and the only think I didn’t like was that i couldn’t afford for a second one;) Great place

Unforgettable pub. Given its worldwide reputation I was surprised to walk-in in a cosy little pub that can probably only site 30-50 inside. Very warm friendly atmosphere inside, small patio in the back. I recommend getting there early when the doors open. The owner feeds wild cats and neighbourhood cats. I was sitting in the back sipping my Wesvleteren 6 surrounded by about a dozen of cats running all over the place. The beer list is to die for. That place is well known for stacking huge quantity of beers that will one day be sought after. Unfortunately their vintage beer list (separate list from regular beer menu, ask for it) is not up to date (like all vintage beer list I’ve seen in Belgium). Some stuff on the list is long gone. But there are still some marvels there. In sept 2006 they still had the Wesvleteren 6 1998 (last year it was brewed). But my can’t-miss recommendation would be the De Dolle 2nd Annivesary beer. It’s called “Oerbier Verjaardagsbier” on the menu. 25 years old and simply amazing taste. The bottle is just incredible to look at. Old 330ml flip-top dusty with the label falling apart. Pricey but worth it. Overall the place is a mandatory stop for any beer geek.

Had my 1. visit the friday before ZBF. Probably wasn’t the most wise decision, because the place was fully packed with beerenthusiasts, and Dirk and Leen was very very busy giving serving times of 30+ minutes. Oh well, sometimes you have to suffer to get the really good stuff. Had a Cantillon Framboise 1979, De Dolle Stille Nacht 1996 and a De Dolle Stille Nacht Reserva 2005, which all was world class beers. Nice little place, that I will revisit on a more calm day. Met several americans while hanging in the bar, and they were all great company. The place to go to have good company and great beer.

One of the world’s best beer cafes, worth traveling a long way to visit. The vintages are an experience. Also a range of interesting things on tap at any given time. Cheese and sausage. Arnold the bar cat is also very amicable. Correction: Arnold the bar cat has since passed on. RIP.

The holy grail of beer! I was able to sample a ton of older beers from the ’80s. The menu is getting a bit smaller, but that doesn’t hurt the selection one bit. Service is a bit slow since it gets busy quick. Also very small so everyone has to share some space. I will be back!

There is no dout about it this is the best beer bar in the world $100 dollar beer for $10 (1982 Thomas Hardy) one of many.

Fantastic place. Really laid-back and relaxed athmosphere with pub cats, huge overgrown plants (the place smells like a flower store), and beer paraphernalia. It seems to be a local pub for people in the area, which is really nice. There’s lots of ads on the tables, some of which are nice, and some of which could annoy you if you let them.
The service is a bit slow, but knowledgeable and very helpful.
The selection, as everyone knows, is fantastic, even if some of the older vintages are beginning to thin out. I was wildly impressed to be able to order a British 1983 imperial stout from Courage (now gone) and to get it in the right glass!

Clearly has strong claims as the greatest beer bar on earth. What an amazing place! Much smaller and casual than what I expected and service was very good for a quite Thrusday night. Needless to say the beer list and vintage list are awesome. 12 beers on tap. An inspirational bar for the aspiring bar owner (I was on a ’research’ trip), my only issue being that the beers were too cheap. An excellent reason to come to Antwerp and sincerely a privilage to drink here.

Great place, loads of beers, and vintages of nearly all of them... Loved the cats and the laid back atmosphere. Food was simple but suited the beers well. Very cheap and probably one of the best beer bars I’ve ever visited.

You can’t say enough about this place, probably one of the greatest, if not the greatest, beer bar in the world. The cellar is amazing and prices are overly affordable. It was so quiet when I was there, often being the only people in there. The owner and his wife were very kind. The food selection was just a few cheese plates and sausages, but stuff that goes really good with a drinking session. Just an experience that any beer lover should have.
