By far the best beer's selection in Europe. They have absolutely everything. In addition, the place just breathes authenticity. Don't go to this bar with a big group of friends, as groups aren't welcome here. A must-visit in Antwerp!

This is a small pub, the owners are behind the bar and they're closer to 70 than 60 years of age, jazz soundtrack, and... THE BEER LIST OF ALL TIME!!!!! Totally insane. Hang out, relax, keep track of the alcohol percentage so you stay safe....More

A small messy little place with a sweetheart and a grump running it. Best selection I have seen anywhere. Can't wait to go back.

Put Kulminator on the list of places to must visit if you are in Antwerpen. Very special bar with the incredible choice of the vintage beers. Go there and relax.

This is clearly a special place. Not so typical brown cafe. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Beer selection is amazing and almost scary. You don't know what to choose. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Place to take our foreign guest to....More

I would personally recommend this gem only to open minded beer travellers. If you are looking for a cosy, charming, comfortable place with Belgian beers be aware Antwerpen has other places to offer. Service seems to be an issue in other review: he is the...More

I was able to try a 1991 Chimay, drink a bottle of Cantillon and discover some excellent beer that I can't find in America. There were probably over 600 beers to choose from the cellar, as well as some awesome beers on tap. It has...More
