What can I say? 2004 beers. Not an easy place to find. But once you do. Sweet mother of beer. We were there post-lunch on a weekday, which is just the way I like it. No crowd at all. It is a bit more....corporate? than I would like but comfortable and welcoming. Quality was spot-on. Everything we had was fresh and served in the right glass. Service was phenomenal. We ordered from the full menu (I know the term "phonebook" has been overused, but what conveys the image better?) rather than the smaller "recommended" menu. So no cheating on the barkeep's part. I ordered a rather unusual one (at least as far as I know) that comes in a 750ml bottle. The bartender was having his lunch as I approached the bar hesitantly, but he waved me over in a friendly way and assured me I wasn't disturbing him. As I ordered the beer, he paused, consulted his mental directory, and then informed me that my choice only came in a large bottle. With 2004 beers, to do better than to look up the storage location for a random selection like that is just bar service poetry in motion. No point in discussing selection. The food selection is much smaller, but what we ordered was tasty and a good compliment to the beer. What can I say about this place, really? It's a pilgimage that every beer geek should make. And you won't be disappointed. Overwhelmed, maybe, but not disappointed.

They offer an astonishing selection of beers downstairs from around the globle, with an impressive number of belgian draught beers (24 taps?) at the ground level including Delirium Tremens and others. Knowledgeable folks. Very crowdy and located right next to the touristic city center. An excellent place to visit, infinitely better than the nearby "beer museum"!
