This nice little bar in a cobbled pedestrian street just off the Grote Markt has a traditional local feel and indeed there were several locals there; but with ten taps and its proclamation of “more than 200 Belgian beers” (in English) over the door it inevitably draws in beer tourists too. Had I known that the pair who elbowed me out of the way in their eagerness to be served were English beer tourists like me I’d have had something to say but, alas, realisation came too late.
It’s quite dark inside but there’s an array of sparkling glasses behind the bar and hops on the ceiling. I sat at one of the tables outside sipping my draught Girardin lambic kriek (delicious!), listening to the tinkling of bells from the cathedral and wondering how “’Allo ‘Allo”, which was on at the theatre café next door, translates into Flemish / Dutch.

Cramped bar with average selection and dreadful service.

Good selection of lambics and other Belgian beers on bottles, a few good taps. Prices are pretty average for the area. The staff seemed to be mostly annoyed by our prescense, but at least we got to buy the beer that we wanted.

The second best bar in Antwerp is also perhaps my favorite because of its proximity to the museums and historic sites. It is an easy stop on the way back from sightseeing. The ambiance feels like a great bar complete with 80s music for a soundtrack. With an entire fridge dedicated to lambics like Boon Vat 44, various 3Fs, and more you won’t be disappointed. If you are in a Trappist mood they also have you covered with three fridges. Literally only a handful of bottles looked unappealing making it hard to choose. There might be slightly cheaper places to drink but not many can beat its combination of price, selection, and location.

The staff wasn’t that friendly and the service was a bit off. The selection was really good and it had good prices.

Visited during the Antwerp pub crawl leg of the RBESG 2013. Small traditional bar with an interesting beer selection and some dirt cheap straight lambic (Girardin in this instance). I’d be more than happy to spend an extended afternoon here.

Decent place in the tourist section of Antwerp. A bit small bar, if you come with a (large) group you won’t be able to sit together. Friendly staff, decent selection.

Located in a very touristy part, but it has quite some locals inside. Always a Struise available from tap and a great lambic selection. Friendly service. Lovely bar.

Stopped by for an afternoon beer. Smallish place right near the center for town. Great service from the bartender. Nice draft selection and tons of bottles. Value seemed very good on draft beer, especially for being in the main tourist area. If you go to Antwerp you must stop by for a beer.

A worthy beer stop on any Antwerp beer visit. It’s a fairly compact beer cafe located centrally with some outside seating. About 10 taps on offer, including one Struise (only Westoek mind you!). There was also some bag-in-box draft lambic. Bottle selection was varied and quite interesting. Although they didn’t have much that I hadn’t seen before I was more than happy drinking a Moriau gueuze. Coffee wasn’t too shabby either. Worth a visit.
