Wow... had read about this beer bar many times, and was quite disappointed.

A: Pretty tacky, actually... especially compared to the many other bars of Belgium I visited. It was early March, so there were about 12,000 paper Leprechauns hung around all over. There were three other guys in the bar, one of which was trying to provoke a quiet man reading a paper into fighting him. Entire place reeked of B.O.

Service: Hardly any customers, yet service was still spotty, and not very friendly.

Selection: HUGE beer menu... however, many, many selections were highlighted to indicate that they weren't in stock. Do they really have, therefore, as many beers as everyone seems to think?

Maybe I just got insanely unlucky? Either way, one of my least favorite bar experiences in all of Belgium... actually, maybe the only one that actually wasn't pretty great.

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.
