Visit the store today, real dark place. With some beers which were just to old. Not a real good service. But you could check it out if you are in the area

Pelgrims has TWO stores, one with only the popular Belgian beers and one with EVERYTHING. If you donít feel like you walked into beer Mecca, youíre in the wrong shop. Tell the guy at the register youíre here for beer and heíll send you to the right store, which is around the block. Tons of glasses, too, super cheap.

Good place with good range. Many beers not available though. A bit of a let down. Friendly service though.

Warehouse style building, not much arrangement to speak of, sodas on one side, beers on the other, some wines and a small ícraftí beer selection by the counter along with a few good gift packs. All beers are in a 24 bottle pack with a spread sheet giving the price breakdown.
The singles are all very well priced, I did not spend over 1Ä75 for a bottle with many costing under 1Ä.
I had the impression of getting a lot of vintage because of the dust on the bottles, but I guess that was just the overall state of the shop.
Some small local breweries on hand along with Cantillon and 3F all well priced.
Selection is alright, although plenty of usual suspects typical to Belgium are to be found. I stopped there for the local stuff and found what I needed.
Not much in terms of atmosphere or even service.

I love this place - I get the feeling many Belgians visit this place for their bottled water & coca-cola, but Iíve seen a few beer connoisseurs walking the aisles with lists as well. What I like best is the price - amazing value, the average price per bottle is like 1.25 Euro or something like that. That said, the variety is second-to-none. Iíve found tons of interesting beers to try here, and they always have my favorites in stock as well. Decent location, if not a little hard to find. Closed Sunday.

Hit this place on my way back from Westvleteren. Nice little store with a decent selection of great/good belgian beers and proper glassware. Picked up 15 bottles of Cantillon (Fou Fone, Lou Pepe Kriek/Framboise, & Vinegronne)

A huge selection of all sorts of beers. Really like the three main "sections".
First off, there was a shelve with really obscure beers which they didnít even sell in crates, only by piece.
Second was the "big bottle and geuze shelf" which was quite impressive to see. Just for the reference, the (smaller bottles of the) geuzes are also in the aisles in crates.
Thirdly was the "Trappist corner", which is, oddly enough, in the soft-drinks-part of the shop. All the trappist beers, in small AND big bottles are to be found over there.
We would describe this shop as being "beer heaven".
Donít expect too much of the service except for the registry, where they are helpful.
