This was my first stop upon arriving to Brussels. When I say first stop, I mean this is the first place I parked the car. Left the luggage in there and got straight to business.

The place was not too crowded and I was able to find a seat at a table straight away. Nice vibe. Tall ceiling, spacious, long bar, outdoor seating. I dig it.

My first beer order was the three Cantillons I had been coveting: Cuvee Moeder Kriek, Faro, and Lambic - all on cask. Simply fantastic. All served in Cantillon tulip stemmed glassware. Voila.

The salad with Cantillon lambic dressing was fabulous.

Lots of beers on draft from which to choose, as well as a bottle list with some old favorites. The prices on some of the vintage bottles is quite steep.

Overall, this was an outstanding experience, and an awesome way to kick off my dream vacation.

The selection is amazing, with 6 different Cantillon drafts/casks (along with others) when I visited, and an extensive bottle list. The service was also impeccable, very efficient and with all of the bartenders and servers happily speaking English. The quality is world class, at least with the lambics, which was my main focus. The atmosphere is I suppose a matter of preference, and I liked the feel of the St. Gilles location more. This was more than fine though, with a large outdoor seating area and plenty of room at the bar. The food selection is pretty limited, but what I had was good. The price on some of the bottles was pretty high, but absolutely appropriate in my opinion for a world class bar like this. Overall, one of the best bars I've ever been to.

Really cool spot, must-go for craft beer lovers. Awesome selection with a ton of sours, saisons, belgians, etc. Had some good italian beers on tap that just came out. Some of the bartenders were kind of assholes but whatever. Food was great, had the meat and cheese plate with bread.

The route back from Cantillon conveniently took us past Moeder Lambic's second location and we stopped there for a not-so-quick lunch of quiche and a meat and bread plate. There I tried the Band of Brothers, a hoppy Belgian style IPA made by Brasserie de la Senne in collaboration with Moeder Lambic. This was a very hoppy beer that I liked, since I hadn't had a really hoppy beer in almost 2 weeks, but may have pushed the limits for me. Since it took a while to get our check, I ended up ordering a second beer, the Cantillion Iris Grand Cru on tap, which was much more mellow than the regular version. I love this beer bar!

We ended up back there later the same day and tried even more great beers.

One of the best beer bars in Brussels for sure!
