Beer Bar in Antwerp - Kulminator

For beer selection, this is probably the second best pub in Belgium (after Delirium Cafe). The selection is vast, and covers new as well as very, very old beers.
Location wise, it is about a 15 minute walk from the main old town centre, and pretty hard to find without a decent large scale map.
Whilst the beer list is massive, and the cellar awash with beers from the past, the downside is the total lack of enthusiasm from the owners. If a beer that you want is in the cellar, be prepared for a long wait as they motivate themselves to take the five metre walk to the cellar. The pub is small, with room for perhaps only 30 sitting customers, and is well decorated with Belgian beer memorabilia. A small smile would have been great, but one does come away thinking that they have done US a favour rather than the other way round. That aside, it is still well worth a visit.
