InBev has taken over. Goose Island served in Brussels historic bar. Crazy. But when ignoring this fact you are welcomed in a really cozy traditional bar. Girardin Kriekenlambic on cask. More interesting belgian bottles. Worth for the atmosphere.

Sadly InBev has taken over the taps of this place. Fortunately there were enough interesting bottles to keep me happy. The interior is like stepping into the centuries past, with a cozy front room, a small bar area with tables that is stuffed with bric-a-brac. Then it gets more modern and more spacious as you head to the back. Staff is extremely friendly and the young barman took the time to write out a list of beery places I should visit. Food is typical traditional Belgian fare, done well. Worth a stop.
This was a cool, charming, old-school bar/cafe. There are a couple rooms and all the walls are adorned with old artwork and photographs. It's very cozy inside. The beer list is solid, nothing too crazy. If you want to have a good beer and quality ambiance, this will do it.
Visited in the evening. The place was packed so we sat down on the closed terrace in the back. Have to say the ambiance at the terrace is not nearly as good as in the main room. Solid selection of bottles, some taps as well. Good service. Wouldn’t consider it a must visit, but it is a decent place to have a beer especially if you can sit in the front room.
Visited for the first time on a Tuesday during lunch in November 2016. A lot of old world charm at this place. It was crowded with mostly locals. (even a dog) The selection was decent, I came for the Girardin Kriekenlambik. The service was a bit on the slow side due to all the guests. Well worth a visit, maninly for the atmosphere and for some decent beers. Located in central Brussels, around 10 minutes walk from the Grand Place.
Visited 28th January 2016, loved the Kriek and Lambic there. The atmosphere is cosy and friendly, lots of locals, happy to speak to you. Bar man also friendly and interested in the beer. Liked this place, the beer was limited, but what they have is enough to get me back there.
Called here for the Girardin kriekenlambic. Very busy, cosy, and atmospheric. The servers were non stop, and very efficient. Nearly everyone, bar us, was eating. Food looked ok, and was certainly popular. Not a large range of beer, but that didn’t bother me. Would visit again, definitely.
Lovely old Brown Cafe type bar in central Brussels with an eccentric history, being popular with Nuns and artists. The outside is strange but when you enter via a curtain and get used to the light you see the charming interior with all its history displayed on the walls. A handy place for a snack and a beer, although the beer list is smaller than many. The language in here appears to be Flemish Dutch rather than the normal Brussels French. Definitely worth a look.
