With all the awards as "best beer cafe in the world" year after year, my in-law and myself decided to give it a try and we went looking for the tiny cosy Cafe in 'het piepkleine' village Eizeringen, near Lennik. Easy to find, just opposite...More

10/10. Great selection of Lambic beers, but also many other great selections. I thoroughly enjoyed the “Black Albert” and the “3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Golden Blend 2014”. Worth a stop if you’re in the area at the right time. Only open mid day on Sundays...More

Small historic pub in front of the church. On Sunday mornings locals and visitors from all over the world gather to enjoy Gueze and Lambic. Take time to wander around the village. Only open on Sunday mornings.

Scent of Belgian countryside. Not only for tourists a real highlight, but definitely worth a visit for inhabitants! They serve interesting and rare beers, typical for this region. Mind the very limited opening hours!!

It's the best (or second best?) beer bar for a reason. Incredible selection of lambics, and especially vintages make it a unique collection. Always warm family atmosphere. From 2017 they started to be open also on Sundays and in afternoons.
