Who’s a good doggo? Billie! Aka Stefan Cauwenbergs’ bulldog, who lent his name to this bruin corner café that pays homage to the best of craft beer. Here you’ll find no fewer than 180 Belgian and foreign beers, from a Tilquin lambic co-fermented with pinot gris (€38) to a Juicy & Wilde Blue-Belle from Lambiek Fabriek, a mix of lambics macerated in oak barrels with Belgian Muscat (€25), not to mention the house blend, a spontaneous fermentation beer made in collaboration with the French brewery Ammonite, aged in a port and cider barrel (€38 or 750 ml). And straight from one of the house’s 11 kegs, a rotating selection of whatever barmaid Lieve Kramer is enjoying at the moment, which is always better with a Billie’s Bratwurst, a hot dog topped with gueuze-fermented sauerkraut (€10.50) or stoofvlees Flemish stew made with Sint-Bernardus Abt 12 (€23). Watching everything from the mezzanine section, Billie wags his tail approvingly. // Janjan Bon
