Cult beer bar, with a pretty epic vintage list. Iím sure the list was better years ago, as the number of rare lambics available now was fairly low. Charming atmosphere, with a feel unlike any other bar Iíve been to -- there is ivy strung across the place and the family ownerís cat roaming around. The woman owner was very nice and hospitable; the man didnít seem the friendliest. Prices are very reasonable for what youíre getting. They have some snacks as well - some nice cheeses and sausages. Amazing place and an absolute must for any Belgium beer trip.

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.
