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.

Nice and pretty place with an old-fashioned feel, smack in the center of the city. Bit overpriced, but worth a visit.

Timmermans lambic themed place in the city center. Good service. Selection is very limited, but there is a faro tick (you can also buy it to go in a bottle for 10 euros). Prices are not unreasonable for that part of the city. Orval is 4.80. Overall: the main reason to come is the faro tick, but i kind of like the feeling of the place, so extra points I guess.

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.

Like Mort Subite bit of a tourist trap, but the décor and atmosphere must be savoured. Beers from Timmermans.

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!

Nice place with lots of wood. Only a couple of surprises. Prices are reasonable.
