This place is in a small picturesque square next to a canal on the south side of the city center. Lots of other bars and restaurants in the area, so it’s perfect for strolling. Good view of the defunct Brouwerij Lamot across the canal - now a restaurant and event space, but the massive copper brewing kettle is visible from outside. This place, by the way, is small and cozy, and has a good chunk of the Anker range. A decent stop in the relative beer desert of Mechelen.

Nice atmosphere, lovely service. They offer all Anker beers (eg. Gouden Carolus) in different sizes. While these beers are available throughout town, they're a tad more expensive here. Great place to do an Anker tasting, but not much more.

Nice pub with Anker beers. Those beers are available in most pubs in town, so that doesn’t make it very special. A wider selection of other beers ("friends of the brewery", "inspirators" or something) would have made it a more interesting place for ratebeerians. The atmosphere is nice, good stop in Mechelen when Stillen Genieter is closed and d’Afspraak too far away.

Decent pub attached to the Anker Brewery, so logically stocking only their beers. Good if you’re looking for anything brewed by... the Anker Brewery, not so good if you’re looking for anything else.

Owned by Het Anker Brewery and hence only stocking their beers, which gives it low marks for selection. Nevertheless this is one of our favourite bars in Mechelen, great ambience.
