Amazing selection of Belgium beers with a few guests beers available as well. Staff are highly knowledgeable, so if your not sure what to order they'll be able to pick something spot on for your tastes.

I've visited Moeder Lambic Fontainas quite a few times now (but only ever made it to the original Chez Moeder Lambic once!). They have possibly the biggest selection of draught beers anywhere in Brussels - approx 30 regulars (of various styles), 10 guests (often including a few from Italy and France, look for the little table blackboards) and 6 Lambic...

Went looking for the Moeder Lambic whilst in Brussels with my wife, I was not disappointed. They have a great selection of beers and if you ask the staff for recommendations they will guide you to the right beer. Ordered a cheese board which had a good selection of fresh cheese and warm bread (which I think they would replace... More

Nice place. Good service... Many draft beers... Service both inside and outside... But flat lambic beer. Take a good abbey beer instead :)

An excellent selection of lambic beers; enough for the whole family! Our server guided us to some great choices. It can get busy but the atmosphere is still very inviting.

We went here several times while in Brussels. The beer selection is great, with some really unique ones from outside Europe (the special was from Quebec, which, being from Canada, we were happy to see). Really good service, good prices. Ordered food once and it was better then your average pub fare. Recommend.

We sat outside and had a samling of about six beers, some lambics which are not my favourite but they had a good selection. The service was excellent with attractive, friendly and efficient waitresses. Recommended for a taste of traditional Brussels beers. We had a meat and cheese platter too which was a perfect accompaniment for the many beers! It... More

Probably one of the best bars in Brussels by way of selection. I barely made a dent in the beer menu, and the Mixte (cold meats and cheeses) was just about enough to fill two empty bellies. Service is great once you get going but initially could have been better.

This really is a great little bar. Visited twice during my stay - once in the afternoon (quiet, laid back, excellent snacks) and once in the evening (busy and buzzing!). A very popular location and easy to see why.
