"The bar stocks perhaps the best range of lambic beers on the planet"

Tim WEBB, Good Beer Guide Belgium

Some have called the pub 'In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst' (In the Insurance against Great Thirst), the only remaining café at the village square in Eizeringen. This traditional Payot cafe has one of the largest gueuze and kriek selections in the world. 

As soon as you enter the café, you might think that a time machine has beamed you to the past. The pub is one of the oldest brick buildings in the village. The walls are telling many stories about the brewery history in the region and the Eizeringen village life. The rare Art Déco counter and the westminster clock draw immediately the attention of the visitors. The restauration of the pub took five years. Kurt, the owner, did his utmost to combine modern comfort with the authenticity of this small part of Flemish heritage.

Besides the regular opening hours on Sundays and church holidays (from 10 AM till 8 PM), the pub is also open when there is a funeral service at St. Ursula Church. Furthermore, the café can be rented for private parties and gatherings.
