Homey and cozy inside - only six taps, but they are VERY well selected - the last time I was there, they put Dieu du Ciel Peche Mortel on one of the taps, and I, literally, heard a chorus of angels - the bottles are where the beer geek gets his rocks off - however, unless youíre willing to fork over 25 bucks or more for that rare 750 of something, you wonít be getting anything you canít go to American Beer Dist. for - overall a great place, with a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff, but, unless you have the scratch, you wonít be getting to taste the stuff that makes this place special.

Flat out amazing beer selection. Nice looking food, but I didnít eat any. Service was top notch. Great atmosphere is ecclectic without being pretentious. I sat in a leather throne. Beer (Fantome Strange Ghost) was served at right temp in an excellent, large bowled, nice quality wine glass. Prices certainly seemed fair (although the sticker shock always gets you when youíre looking at lists of Cantillon, etc). Of the places Iíve been, Iíd put this behind only Toronado, and that only because I love the atmosphere of Toronado that extra little bit.

This is an unbelievable place. I spent a whole night at the tiny, hearty biergarten drinking good beer and eating great cheeses and sausages. The selection is not very wide, but there are some rareties in between. Mostly european stuff. Too sad they didínt have all the bottes that they claimed to have on the blackboard. Because of that, I missed Peche Morted and Cantillon Spuytin Duyvil. Interior in the bar is retro style. Different chairs, a old hospital table, an old bike and several maps on the walls. As of the service, I was quite impressed that one of the two friendly, dedicated bartenders spoke Danish. All in all a great bar for the enthusiast and a great bar for everyone else as well. Even the jukebox had a nice selection of classic American songs.

Wonderful place! A bit tight but donít we love that! Great selection of world beers - Baltic Porters, Geuzeís, Doppelbocks, and one or two Eisbocks. Rapid rotation of cask and kegged beers. Dedicated staff. Cool interior with loads of remote breweriana.

Very much recommended, huge, huge! selection of beer worldwide. Especially Belgian selections, I really liked how everything was listed by country and style. Very enjoyable place, has a very nice outdoor area, quiet conversation. One of my all-time favorites. Staff is very helpful, efficient, knowledgeable. Wonderful experience.

Nice hole in the wall... could use a few more taps. Nice to see some unique stuff, like a port-primed cask of J.W. Lees.

Absolutely stunning Belgian bottle menu, about as drool-inducing as the HopLeafís in Chicago or Brugesí Brugsí Beertje. Superb homey feel, extremely attentive and hard-working barmen, what more can you ask for really? If I had a place like this in my city, Iíd be a regular. Prices are pretty steep, especially if you get into the rare bottles, but if you choose well, you wonít be disappointed. Cheese and meat plate is pretty interesting. One of the worldís best, no doubt.

The ambiance is simple to the point and comfortable. The service very knowledgable and friendly (and pretty effeicient too - despite the place being packed I never had to wait and never felt rushed in chatting with the barmen). The selection is fantastic for Belgian style enthusiasts. They focus on that and do it very well. Tap selection was perhaps not astounding (with the exception of Fantome on tap) but the bottle menu clearly made up for it. Although the first couple of rare beers ordered were out of stock, the majority were available including some real discoveries. The cheese plate was of a very generous size for the cost and paired well with the beers, though the beers are truly what itís all about. íEssentialí does not begin to do this place justice!

A wonderful selection of beers, and great atmosphere. Even though the number of drafts is only six, I still often find that there are a higher number of really good drafts here than at bars with 20-30 drafts! The bottles are actually over a hundred rather than 60! I am happy to say this place is a local to me.
