Visited the Belgian city of Antwerpen as part of a veritable beer-cation and hastily sought this place out. It was very close to the hostel we stayed at. I loved the decor - lots of clutter, old furniture and beer paraphernalia.... overhead cases with all the beer glasses inside...Outdoor seating was available, but for once on the trip I preferred the indoors. I wish I had a basement decked out like this. Old world music at a low volume added very much to the atmosphere. The menu was comprised of several binders of aged rarities. The stock in the cooler was quite a sight to see through it's little window. I had to get the Westvleteren 12 while I was there. Also had Rodenbach & several varieties of Gouden Carolus on tap. An old couple runs the place. They were pleasant but not overly outgoing. It was quite alright. We remained in awe and kept to ourselves taking it all in. The very small crowd seemed like tourists as well, overhearing conversations about beer geekery. It is Beer Traveler's #8/150 best places to drink beer after all!

This is not an average beer bar, this is an experience.
Cluttered, dodgy and dirty. I liked it a lot.

Didn't try the vintage beers but stuck with some aweome beers (like Mikkeller Black) they had on tap.

Service is different. Not bad or anything but different as others have explained here as well.

When in Antwerp you just got to go here just because it is what it is.

I went here with high expectations but I was pretty disappointed. I started with the bottle list but didn't find anything I had to have that I felt was worth the money. I then moved to the tap list and didn't really recognize anything. So I picked two for a friend and I to split. They were pretty bad. I don't know if it was the beer themselves or their age, condition, etc. I wasn't impressed with the atmosphere but the service was very good. I just don't get what so many people see in this place.
