huge number of beers to choose from

we went on a very warm friday evening and everyone was sat outside, so we had the inside to ourselves. Good service, lots of choice, great location and atmosphere.

Great place for a drink. Friendly staff and very, very good beer options. Try the dry hopped house beer, it is very interesting.

We stopped in to sample the Belgium beers at lunch time and were not disappointed. We took an outdoor table, relaxed and enjoyed the view. The thick menu binder contained many pages of beers with sections printed in several different languages. We had the Lindesmans Kriek, a light cherry beer that went down like a fruit drink, and a Chimay... More

I had a day to run around Ghent - and we stopped into this pub.....twice. Their selection of beers and price was amazing. The ambiance also was hard to beat in that they are right next to the water. They also have different glasses for each beer on their menu. In terms of beer, this place seems to have little... More

I really like this place. They have 3 of their own beers on tap that are very good. And a very large beer selection. Location is great, by the water having a casual drink is perfect. But service is never good. They always seem understaffed and a little uninterested. So it can take some time to get served. People like... More

I have always loved Belgian beer so this was like heaven to me...I've never seen a beer menu like the one they have there...pages and pages of obscure Belgian beers. Some have said the service is unfriendly...I would say it "wasn't unfriendly" but yeah, no huge smiles or anything like that. We didn't try the food but the beer menu... More

Great location... Great selection of beer at great prices! Nice and cosy... A must! I ended up having two Orval blonds.. So smoothe and refreshing to drink and my wife who normally dislikes beer had a strawberry flavoured ones and enjoyed it too. We met a friendly elderly couple who shared a table with us and this was their local... More

Visited this place a couple of times during our recent trip to Ghent both day time and in the evening. Fantastic choice of beers including three of their own brews. Friendly service and customers (both local and tourists) If you like good beer don't miss this place.

Fantastic location overlooking the canal and a great selection of beers, very reasonably priced too. Well worth a look.

This nice looking beer house can be tucked away, but it is still easy to find for all. It has a nice selection of good beers, prices are okay and the atmosphere is fine. Nothing special, but worth a visit for one beer - as long as you will be visiting other bars as well. It has a little bit... More
