THE BEST PLACE I VISITED! This place has an amazing selection, hidden gems, great beer that can be taken to go. Service was top notch, a lovely little place to hang out, a small outdoor area for nice weather and in a beautiful neighborhood. The star of my visit here was a Westy verticle. 1997 Westy 12, 1999 Westy 12, 2001 Westy 12, 2004 Westy 12, 2008 Westy 12, Current Westy 8, Current Westy Blond, AND 1998 WESTY 6. WOW... I would recommend everyone see this place.

I can’t wait to get back here. The selection is amazing. There were a few things on the menu that weren’t available but there was plenty of rarities to choose from. Great atmosphere - lots of wood & classical music. Beautiful patio with cats running around. I ran into some ratebeer folk from Denmark and spent the night drinking with them before walking back to my hostel. A great, great place. Oh, and the Sausage was good too!

Great place. Wonderful selection of many bottled beers. Good service, the owner (lady) is very friendly, the husband looks a bit more grumpy. When I was there I was lucky that it was pretty empty, some locals told me that this place can get crazily crowded. I liked the ambiance as well, dark interior stuffed full with beer bottles and interesting items.

Surely one of the greatest beer bars in the world. I went on a Thursday afternoon in July. With only one other couple there, we got great service and I enjoyed a 10 year old De Dolle Oerbier. Tasty little snacks and a great, relaxed atmosphere. Didn’t sample enough food to justify giving this a food rating. We sat outside and marveled at the hop plants. This is the kind of place that makes me want to move to Belgium.

What at place - I am coming back !!!Not a very big place, and a lot of customers, so arrive early. The service is friendly and competent. The selection is magnificent - new and old dusty (bottles and content). Small, but nice, food/snack selection og sausage and cheese. One of the best places I have ever been !!!

Jammed with tourists during my visit. Cosy, tight pub with the atmosphere of that of the local joint. A place I’d like to visit around noon on a Sunday. Solid, civilized service. Dusty, old bottles is not an issue here. They’re just a natural part of the beer list, and some of them happen to be old.

Everything interesting - ... from every year and in the right glass. So impressive. Ask for som cheese and sausages to go with your Courage Imperial Russian Stout from 1983 or your Beer Geek Breakfast 2007.. Nice service that is not all over you all the time... calmness and a great atmosphere. Forget to go somewhere else when you are first seeted

My favorite beer bar anywhere. The selection is wonderful. You can get cellared beers like Chimay and Orval. The owners are quirky but very nice. Also very knowledgeable about the beer. A couple of cats run around the place. Food menu is slim, but who needs food? I have this place in my GPS so I will never get lost.

Great atmosphere, smaller tables might be nice but it seems to be a Belgian thing to share tables. Delightfully quiet when it first opens for the day, classical and other pleasant music when we arrive. Lovely sausage is quite cheap, fatty and delicious. Yumm! Service is friendly and helpful in explaining some of the food options but is noticeably tired/stressed as the day goes on. That said its the Friday before Zythos and it is quite busy on its own merits, the gentleman had damaged himself and was not very mobile so she was effectively on her own so I can’t really complain. A busy bar is a busy bar! That said, a number of things we tried to order were thus unavailable as he could not retrieve them from the depths of the cellar, which was disappointing. We inquired about Westy 6 and apparently we would need to buy many various bottles and incarnations of Westy before we could buy that one. That irked me, but if I had supplies of that beer I suppose I would ration it as well, though that does little to ease my jealousy :) Overall I quite liked the place. Beer list was extensive, and we found lots of rarities and lovely options to keep us occupied even though some were unavailable. Like many other places it gets less amazing the busier it gets, but it still manages to be rather good! I love that there is a cat living here, that’s awesome.
