Moeder Lambic Pub in Brussels, Belgium

This is one of the few non-historical pubs we visited in Brussels, famous for it’s selection of sour fruit ales (lambics) as well as an extensive collection of other beers we had never heard of before.

Al had a Zinnebir from Brasserie de la Sienne, described on the menu as ‘blonde, bitter and light‘. Al described it as a typical Belgian IPA; I found it a tad light with a very bitter finish.Enjoying a 'Brasserie De La Senne' beer in the Moeder Lambic Pub in Brussels, BelgiumMy choice was a Val-Dieu Blonde, on the menu as ‘blonde, mild and light‘. While we were downing these beers, we were checking with the beer app Untapped to get a feel for the unknown world of lambics.

  1. What a nice trip – we first had lambic with my brother a few years ago – it was so fun as he gave us a lesson (it was expensive too –
    But at least they had it for him to order)
    And the quiche looks Delish!
