This is the most amazing beer bar I have ever been to. They have thousands of beers here.

Out with the bad before the good....

It is legal to smoke in the bars in Belgium. This was a bit annoying, but hey... freedom is freedom.

This is Belgium.. ordering was a bit difficult as my french is as good as my italian. Horrible. Thank god for translate.google.com. I was able to translate my order and murder the pronunciation. It was good enough to order my 2003 vintage Fantome Pissenlit.

Young crowd. Everyone was pretty cool. I expected to see some better ordering going on, but I think most people were travellers and ordered what was available near them. I did find some gems though.

The good..

12 different kinds of Fantome. This is my favorite brewery as they make the best Saison in my opinion. The distributor stopped carrying it for the most part so it is very difficult to get. They only carry a couple kinds as well. While I was at this bar I tried as many as humanly possible - when in belgium.

This was quite the experience. This trip was my first time to Africa as well as Europe. This is a must see if you are in the Brussels area. Next time I go i will need to try some others. Not too far there is also a bottle shop. I forget the name, but I was able to get some Westy 8. Not bad considering the stuff is nearly impossible to find. I got 2 glasses and 3 westy 8 bottles. Managed to smuggle them back into the country. I will save them for a VERY special occasion.

I had high hopes on visiting here but was very dissapointed. The 1st 3 beers I asked for where not in stock and many of the 2000 beers claimed are just generic macro lager from different countries. I also drank in the hoppy loft upstairs and while some of the beers i asked for where in stock all 3 where out of date, one by 5 years. There are better beer bars in Brussels Moeder Lambic for example.

It was weird being in such a landmark place, and feeling as though I was crashing a Euro frat party. Very young vibe.

Been here a few times. It's definitely touristy, but they have a great selection of beer. Worth a visit just to say you've been here.

Fantastic selection of mostly Belgian style beers. It's basically self order at the bar and it can be busy and a bit loud, but highly recommended.

Fairly well known, touristy spot but a fun place to visit. Obviously they have their famed 2000+ beer bottle list but might as well drink some DT or DN on draft or wait forever for a bottle. It can get pretty packed so maybe not a place to hang out all night.
