Visited in March 2006 on a whirlwind tour of Belgium. Thanks to the Bum for the steerage to this place.

Landed on my whim flight and after a brief stop in the Brussels airport for a beer and a ride into town to find a hotel room. Without sleep, I jumped on a train and made my way to the suburbs and Drie Fonteinen.

Let me tell you, as a first meal for a country you can do so much worse than eating here. Wow. Sat down at a nice cozy table by the fire and sampled the local products and the daily special. Food was damn amazing.

The beer? Well, you should know I'm a sucker for a good gueze or kriek and suck me in they did.

Really, this place is amazing. It defies what your expectations are and makes that walk up and down the hill for the train well worth it.

Do not miss if you get a chance. (814 characters)

Very cool to finally visit 3 Fonteinen. The restaurant rests in a small square adjacent to a neat church building (there's also the Beersel Castle not too far away). We visited for lunch on a Friday. Despite their website stating that they open at 9am, they actually open at noon. Ok then. The restaurant appears pretty standard, clean, friendly, and there is a nice outdoor seating area, which is what we opted for on this particularly nice day.

The beer selection was good, with several vintages of their lambics to choose from, including more fresh options. The menu was more extensive than many places I visited in Belgium, and the food was very good. Child-friendly options as well.

The service was so-so. Everyone was friendly, but the pace of the service was so laid-back to the point of being annoying. You can sit there twiddling your thumbs with an empty glass, and no one will give you a second glance unless you send out an SOS.

Taking a stroll around the corner, you'll find the shop, where there are lots of bottles for takeout, and some merch as well. This was a good place to kill a little time while waiting for the restaurant to open. From what I saw, the take-home bottles were mostly if not all the latest/freshest batch, so don't go expecting all kinds of crazy vintages. I caught a glimpse of Armand here, but he was busy with a private tour.

It's a no-brainer that you should visit 3F while in Belgium. (1,429 characters)

Not my most favourite place to go to cause sours are not my thing but the 3F beers are good trade stuff. (105 characters)

I stopped in with some local friends while visiting the area. I'd been wanting to get here for quite some time but its distance from the Brussels city center always prevented that. But I made it and it was fantastic! It's not the brewery pub or tasting room you'd expect from US breweries but they had a great lineup including hand pulled kriek, lambic and faro, vintage brews and a nice listing if food. This place is authentic and inspiring. (443 characters)

I've met a lot of friendly people at breweries, but getting to meet Armand and the brewers behind the beers was beyond words. This is a definite must-visit if you're in Brussels. (179 characters)
