A huge drink shop with a lot of different brands and types of beer. A bit confusing since there was a lot of people and the brands were distributed in an order I did not understand. But the prices are fine and the choice is amazing.

Beer supermarket aimed at French shoppers. Good selection and good prices but with all the ambiance of Tescos.

Man I love this place so much. Definitely my most frequented Belgian beer warehouse, I come here at least every 2 months. A huge place with row upon row of beer crates stacked up, with prices displayed above. At the entrance is soft drinks / juices and pre-packed beer baskets.. you walk further and see a fridge with Chimay cheese and 3 beer taps (only operating on Saturdays I believe). In front of you is a decent wine selection, then you turn left where there is usually a few limited edition options. I’ve found some great stuff here, Black Damnation, aged Straffe Hendrik and other limited Struise & barrel aged stouts.
The selection here is better than other such beer warehouses but lacks some of the edgier craft / micro brewers.. an impressive lambic selection. Also a good selection of gift boxes and magnums, not to mention a huge glassware, beer mat & clothing section. Also has some snacks (although the crisps tend to be near their best before date) and various spirits.
The big draw is the prices which are generally a bit lower than others. As such some beers such as Orval are restricted to one crate per person. For anyone looking to stock up before returning to England (or wherever) this is a perfect place to stop. Plus there’s a Leonidas shop just down the road to appease your lady for waiting patiently for you! (i spent 2 hours in here last time!)

Found this using Tim Webbs Good Beer Guide to Belgium: The location is good for the channel ports if coming up the E42 from Lille.
It is a great big warehouse with a small bar inside selling their own beers on tap. The rest of the warehouse is full of beer, other drinks and glasses: we are talking about row upon row of different Belgian beers here, crates, huge bottles, 75cl bottles, gift packs, one offs you’ll never see again, specials, regulars, favourites as well as stuff you know and love.
I spent a very happy hour wandering around and left with 94 Euro’s worth of beer and a Rum from Fiji. I could have easily spent more time and a whole lot more money if the car hadn’t already got a stash of booze in it already.
You are just left alone to wander and stare, but help is on hand should you require any.

An enormous warehouse-like building filled with rows upon rows of crates. A great place to load up on common beers. Huge selection of glasses. There are some harder to find beers, but nothing really rare. Prices are hard to beat.

A beer super market close to the French border. Good selection of industrial and artisanal beers but very few vintages. They offer some really good deals when you buy beer per crate. The beers are very reasonably priced. They also sell spirits, wine and some chocolates.

Large beer supermarket with nearly everything available both by the crate and the bottle, at decent prices. Very good selection of beers, plus a lot of the glasses, some merch and other alcohol. Not much in the way of rare beers, although I did get some La Trappe Quadruple Oak Aged (batch 5) for €7.88 a bottle.

Good beer supermarket, good commercial selection of beers, some strange one, some non-Belgian too. Also some big bottles 3 ltr, 6 ltr and 9 ltr. There are many French costumers too, good choise of them to get here.
