This was my first stop upon arriving to Brussels. When I say first stop, I mean this is the first place I parked the car. Left the luggage in there and got straight to business.
The place was not too crowded and I was able to find a seat at a table straight away. Nice vibe. Tall ceiling, spacious, long bar, outdoor seating. I dig it.
My first beer order was the three Cantillons I had been coveting: Cuvee Moeder Kriek, Faro, and Lambic - all on cask. Simply fantastic. All served in Cantillon tulip stemmed glassware. Voila.
The salad with Cantillon lambic dressing was fabulous.
Lots of beers on draft from which to choose, as well as a bottle list with some old favorites. The prices on some of the vintage bottles is quite steep.
Overall, this was an outstanding experience, and an awesome way to kick off my dream vacation.

Multiple stops on Brussels beer tour October 2013.
Located just off one of the busiest streets in Brussels, Moeder Lambic is pretty unassuming from the outside, about a dozen table, which as you will find out, or the residence of the smokers (a commonality in this city) so if you want to enjoy your beer in a smoke free atmosphere you need to go inside. About ten booths along the brick facade opposite the 15 seat bar, with an elevated stage and seating area in the rear. The quality was unparallelled. While Delirium may have more beers, the quality here is crazy, about 30 taps, four Cantillon beers *on cask*, a rotating tap list (except for permanent guest taps), special taps (I had De Ranke Hop Harvest 2013), a long list of special bottles (I shared Cuvee de Champions with a couple ex-pats my first visit). Service, other than the lone barkeep who repeatedly corrected my pronunciation of Val Dieu (not sure he cared for me after I asked him how to say "smart*** moth***r in French) everyone was quite nice, even recommending a superb beer driven restaurant nearby. Food was typical Belgian pub grup, cheese, charcuterie, quiches, but apparently of pretty high quality, but must note there are a plethora of great restaurants within easy walking distance. Prices are about average for the off-Grand Place area, you get what you pay for. IMHO, one of the world's best beer bars,and I've been to most of them. Absolutely essential visit for the traveling beer aficionado. My highest recommendation.

Tap selection was very good: they had several Cantillon beers. The bottle selection was also very impressive with many hard to find beers. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. The charcuterie board was really good, and the quiche was ridiculous. Get the quiche.

I stopped in with the family during a day trip to Brussels. The décor is simple but elegant. I love the booths; especially the ones in the back. The tap list is solid but the best part is the bottle list. They offer some rare beers. They were out of a couple of them but it was still pretty impressive. They're pricy but at least you have the opportunity. I'll definitely be heading back during a longer stay in Brussels.

Last stop on my first visit to Brussels! The place looks very rustic and gothic on the outside, but really modern on the inside. House/Techno music bumping at appropriate bar levels. At first I thought this place was perhaps a restaurant, they had a lot of booths inside that reminded more of a gastro-pub in the US. The bar was line with taps and fridges full of beer. At first their menu seemed a step above the norm for Brussels, which is pretty good. There were several beers I hadn't seen, but a lot I knew of. I was glad to try some beers on tap that I had only drank from a bottle. They had a few beers from Brasserie De La Senne, whose bottles I had just bought earlier in the day, so I was stoked to try those out. Overall, not much 'filler' beers, just the good shit. Having been drinking in Brussels for a few days, narrowing down my choices was a bit easier. I noticed their special/event beers' list right as I was leaving, which showed a lot of smaller breweries I hadn't seen. I wish that sign was more visible when I walked in. The staff seemed a bit leisurely, but were extremely helpful once they got to our table. My favorite part was instead of giving us nuts and pretzels, they gave us a small bowl of roasted barley.
If you're in the area and want to avoid the more touristy beer destinations (ie Delerium) this place is definitely a must.
