Wow, this is a hidden realm back here. From the main ‘walkway’ you would never know this was here. My first thought was this seems like a “speakeasy” as you need to know someone to find out where it is, I did. So sebletitje and I enter the small space and took a seat in the cramp confines where there’s worn smooth wood in every direction except the bricked in fireplace. I enjoy the serving method as the Faro (and the Gueuze too maybe) is served in an aged ceramic vessel. The service was ok and I didn’t try the food as it seemed more soul-full food can be found elsewhere. As far as beer goes they have the Timmerman’s Lambic Doux Faro and a few other offerings none of which is worth heading in here. It is worth it to experience the mood and history and architecture.
Visited 9 Mar 17. Old-style backstreet cafe. A bit touristy but full of atmosphere. OK selection.

A classic old town place (and also a touristic one). They serve a lot of Timmermans beers and some classic Belgian standards. The most valuable beer for ratebeerians is probably the Faro tick you can get here which is quite nice. Besides that, it’s not really worth coming back, there are much better places in Brussels.
A bar behind a narrow path between other houses. Timmerman beers on tap and they have their own timmermans house blend if I have seen it correctly. Old interior with a lot of wood and old images on the wall. Quite a traditional pub, but I didn’t stay for a second beer.
Lovely atmosheric must-visit place at the end of an alley near the bottom of the Grand Place. Not a great selection but the lambic doux was among the best and good value. Service was efficient if a bit impersonal

A charming little old school Brussels place, very quiet when visited early evening on a Wednesday. The beer selection is small but the Timmermans faro made for them was a pleasant surprise that I only knew about upon visiting. Worth popping in if only for that!
Lovely old tavern down a dark alley off Tabora. I’m sure that on my visits quite a few years back this was a proper Lambic House, I do believe that my first introduction to this wonderful style was in here. It looks like there has been quite a change in here as it now seems like a pub with just an average range of beer instead of doing one thing really well. The Landlord didn’t interact very well either being quite frosty with people. Not sure I will be going back now.
Visited 10-SEP-2015, with Ulkløbben.
Very funny place. Ugly, old fashioned but still not without charme.
A giant jug of Timmermans Lambic Doux. Not bad but not really good.
Glad to have tried the place but will not revisit.
