Thebis without a doubt the bestbbeer bar I have ever visited. Both locations are fabulous. The Fontinanas location is the newer larger spot with quite a lot of taps for a Belgian bar. I own a beer bar in New Orleans and I wish I could do things this well.

The staff has a love and enthusiasm for artisanal beer This is one of the few places in Belgium that is not tied to a specific brewery or company like In Bev which means that they can and do carry only what they want to carry. You will not see any of the omnipresent Belgian beers like Jupiler which was refreshing. Only the very best of Belgian artisanal beer is here. Tiny breweries in Belgium are up against bigger obstacles than we face in the US so bars like Moeder are critical to their survival.
If you can visit only one bar in Belgium...make it Moeder.

Though it's in a touristy part of town, it doesn't feel too touristy. Very relaxed environment and staff. Sat outside to enjoy a number of beers including Cantillon Faro on tap (a unique, though not amazing treat). Bottles were served in baskets accompanied with barley malt to nibble on. Ordered a very nice quiche with a salad. Selection was amazing. Waiter would play along with my French until he needed to say something more complicated like "we no longer have that". Very friendly.

My favourite bar in Brussels. A wonderful selection but with sometimes steep prices. I have eaten here on more than 1 occasion and I enjoyed the quiche in particular. A nice clean bar with 40 taps to choose from. A very nice vibe also. A wonderful bar to share a bottle or 2 in.

Fantastic selection of world class beers and great service. The menu is a bit limited, but why would that be a problem.
