Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels

Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels

With a central location in Brussels, this is a typical craft beer Mecca that makes you fall in love with the local artisan ales. Despite being called 'Moeder Lambic', which is a Dutch name, the staff mostly speak French and some English. And they have beer – lots of it, with every local Brussels brewer represented.

You'll be able to spot about 50 taps and half a dozen hand pumps, plus a superb bottled range including a few foreign brands and a Cantillion not found anywhere else. At €20 to €25 a liter on average, the droughts are just a tiny bit expensive but worth it. You can try different Lambic (spontaneously fermented) styles like the sweetened Faro, the bitter Gueuze, as well as the extremely popular Fruit Lambics and plain Lambic (unblended). While the food offerings are limited, what they do have is tasteful: charcuterie, quiche, dried sausage, sandwiches, etc.

The look of the pub itself is quite attractive, with exposed brickwork, a long-serving bar, great decor and furnishings and plenty of seating options spread throughout - both inside and outside on the terrace looking out over the tranquil Place Fontainas (a couple of minutes from the Manneken Pis statue).
