A fantastic pub with an amazing atmosphere and a solid beer list. It’s a short walk from the main square and you could easily miss it waking by. The awkward but intriguing entry way is like a portal to another time. The brick walls and ceiling are absolutely amazing. And to add a modern touch, the wi-fi is great. Joel the owner is a fantastic guy that likes to talk beer. Between the atmosphere, beer, service, very reasonable prices and nostalgic 80s music (I’m showing my age here), this is one of my favorite beer bars anywhere!

"Popular with locals,’t Poatersgat fills an underground passage that the owner claims used to be used by monks sneaking out of the nearby church and into the brothel at the end of the road. Nowadays, the rabbit-hole-like entrance (through a door embedded in the church wall) leads to a great place for a casual drink."
Was aware of this place but wasn't really planning on stopping here. We were actually planning on stopping in at Comptoir des Arts, which was closed on this evening (poor planning). As luck would have it, this bar is directly across the street, which I was not aware of. It was one of those funny fate moments.
Beer list was fine - they were out of the 3F Gueuze, so I opted for the Cantillon varietal.
It's dark, grimy and full of antiques. It's old and outdated and strikingly charming. Unique spot - I think I enjoyed it more by stumbling ass backwards into it than I would had I planned a visit ahead of time.
