Ubered out from Brussels city centre since the timing was a bit better and we were slow moving from the night before. What an amazing place to enjoy some beer. Inside is somewhat small and I got the impression it gets crowded fairly quickly if you aren't there early. We sat outside on the patio (about five tables) enjoying the beautiful weather while people went into and then out of church. Enjoyed 5 different bottles of Methode Goat which was pretty spectacular and then got to try a Dorst blend from 2012 which was fantastic. Great selection of sours across the board, some yummy cheese and just an all around fantastic place. Definitely helps to go with a local (or if you speak French) and just go with the flow.

Wow second 5.0 in a year! Took a long bus ride from the city center, then a couple of hundred meters of (mostly downhill) walking. As mentioned before only open Sundays 10-14, but as well at weddings, funerals and baptizing. We were there early so took the big church tour (in 10 min ;) ). I had to pee - so the owners mum let me get in 15 minutes before. A bit odd with a shared toilet with urinoars. Great interiors with old beer mania. Great selection- started of with Faro from Eylenbosch vintage -88, super nice and not that cheap. But probably 4 times cheaper vs buying in Brussels. Mixing loads of old brews with fresh ones accompanied with some nice cheese. Don’t know if the Faro or the Nath 2017 was the best. Very friendly and humble staff- the entire family was there working. Not all the beer was there vs the beer list but I didn’t get to the point were I asked what they did had but wasn’t printed. It is good idea to be there before 10 / they can open earlier + after the mass there lodas of elder people coming over from the church - and they are thirsty;)

Nice place, easy to reach with public transport (and a bit of a walk). Only open Sunday. Cool old school place. Was not sure what to expect, but very nice experience. I think I expected the place to be a bit bigger :P Not as much lambic choice as I thought they would have ... I guess a lot of stuff has been sold out over the years ... Good place to get some Methode Goat (if available).

Visited on 9th December 2018. Single roomed trad venue a decent bus ride out of the city. Sunday only as was busy with locals and tourists. Lovely, really relaxed vibe. Decor is beer related, really nice old dusty place. Hit during a lambic festival so good tap list and a solid bottle list. Service is great. Food is simple bread and pate. Prices good. Definitely one to visit.

So this one is a bit special. Visited by car we were a bit early so had to wait for 20 mins for the bar to open. I imagine it wouldn't be easy to visit by public transport. First I had some draught Beersel Faro, then two Allagash lambics and finished De Cam Special Lambiek. Lots of lambic in the menu, however they did not have Lou Pepe at all. Some bottles can be quite pricey, but I guess that's vintage lambic for you. The place has very local feel to it with lots of memorabilia from WW I. Owners were very kind and ready to chat especially when we found out they spend their holidays in Croatia. We had some 3Fonteinen pate which was a nice breakfast. Was lucky enough to meet Pete Slosberg who was sitting with his friends at the table next to ours. Anyway I'm very glad I had a chance to visit this place, well worth the pilgrimage.
