After seeing an online post I ordered some beers and a Dutch cider here by phone and had them picked up by family in the area, very helpful and friendly. Next time I'm around I will definitely try and visit the shop!
Physical manifestation of the Siris about Beer concept which offers guided beer tastings, off-flavour courses and lectures about beer. Due to Covid-19 measures for the moment unfortunately only open as a delivery service & occasional store. Food & beer tastings planned in the future including an Antidoot + Enfant Terrible tasting. Visited during first open day functioning as a store. Located very close to Het Eilandje section of Antwerp in a container of sorts which is decorated far better than you would expect coated elaborately with wooden panels. About half of dedicated to beer with choice selection from Magic Rock cans, Pils 13 to Vintage rarities from De Molen, Struise to things like Tilquin grape lambiek & Cantillon. Other half is sherries, wine, wiskey and bourbon going to likes like Old Rip Van Winkle & Sherry dating back to 1910. There are also some interesting soda’s. Available currently in multitudes of 5 cl. If they are allowed to open properly multitudes of 1 cl. should be the default option. People are encouraged to try new & unique beverages, including things they wouldn’t pull the trigger otherwise on, expert explanation on all beverages available obviously. Very knowledgeable service by Dylan and outdoors entertainment by Amina as people waited outside due to Covid-19 measures. Overall very cool & interesting place and interesting concept where people have the opportunity to explore new beverages which they may not encounter otherwise or are unfamiliar with, including expert guidance if desired. For the moment there is a nice grass pasture to chill at nearby near the river after shopping here.gave a cheers!
Visited very shortly before 2020 Covid-19 lockdown, last day before I decided to flee back home. Almost entirely deserted, possibly due to circumstances. Gorgeous old tiles behind the bar, kegs visible behind the glass as well as cellar, modern massive wood & not quit metal feel, lots of glass gorgeous. Solid prices, plenty of cask & I stuck with cask which was really good condition. Lots of great UK breweries, quite a few small ones unknown to me some prime internationals like DLS & quite an impressive collection of lambiek visible in the cellar & great service. Really stellar place.
The wife and I stayed for one week at the Gasthof (excellent room!) and we enjoyed every minute of it. It was an excellent home base for exploring the Franconian Toskana. Very good service, we really felt welcome and very relaxed in the place.
