When I arrive the outdoor seating is packed, so on the way inside and pony up at the bar. I am handed a beer list and on the cover it says "Stone Brewery vs. Moeder Lambic" well how awesome is that! I notice the 40 taps which about have are Stone products, way cool again. As I am looking, I see cask pumps, and I ask what's with that. Well I guess Lambics are only served out of a barrels if it is cask, my what a slice of heaven. Then I notice behind the bar a fantastic selection of bottles, I finally got my Mikkeller 1000 IBU! As I am ordering a Cantillion cask I notice Greg Koch from Stone behind the bar. He told me that he was getting in the Belgian market and he loved this place. I have been to Stone a couple times and I have to go to Belgium to meet Greg. So nonetheless, great place on its own, but the memory of having a beer with Greg there will last forever!

This place was amazing..........Cantillon on Cask Gueuze, Kriek & Frambiose. Drank a bottle of Zenne Y Fonterea for 50 Euros and had a chalk board draft list that was amazing.

I went to Moeder Lambic Fontainas on the night of Nov. 12, 2015 and spent about three hours there. It's got some energy to it, and I think the selection and quality of fine beers adds to that. There were 5 Cantillons on cask when I went, and they even had one that Cantillon itself did not have available (on site or takeaway) when I went two days later. They've also got some crazy empty bottles on display that were fun to check out. I had some of a cheese and meat platter and the salami and cheese was amazing. Couldn't comment on any main dishes though. One server seemed pretty indifferent to the job, but one was incredibly helpful and took time to answer all my questions even with a busy bar. Fair location too, not far out of the way depending on where you're staying obviously. I would argue a must-visit in Brussels.
