I was at the Kulminator in Antwerp on June 8th, and found out that the long time proprietor (Dirk) was retiring in 2 days on June 10th. It sounded like he had suffered an injury and was not able to continue running the bar. The night I was there, he was limited to pulling bottles from their cellar, while his wife did a remarkable job of waiting on everyone in the bar. I talked with one of the locals, and he was genuinely concerned about the future of the Kulminator without Dirk. So, has anyone been there in the last month? Is it still going strong? I hope so, as it was one of the highlights of my Belgian beer tour.
