Stopped in here for a quick visit before a meal at then restaurant next door. Grabbed a few interesting bottles from Armand, and he was generous enough to give us a quick brewery tour despite him typically not doing them other than the first Saturdays of the month - thanks Armand! Armand is obviously extremely passionate about what he does and the quality of 3 Fonteinen products of course represents this. If you can work this into your trip along with a visit to the restaurant I recommend it, but it’s not an absolute must.

Brewery pequeña, con maquinaria nueva pero tradición larga de mezcladores de cerveza. Fantástica cava de envejecimiento. Trato amable y discernido. En la tienda no tienen mucha selección.

Visited in October 2012.
This is right around the corner from the restaurant but unlike the restaurant I had a great time here. Armand and his wife were the only ones in the store besides our group, and she gave us free tasters of the spirit that they made from their lambic. They had plenty of all of the seasons, of course the oude gueuze and kriek, lots of Golden Gueuze, and a fair amount of Scharbeekse kriek. If I had access to a LTL shipment I would have bought a whole lot more than I did. I also spotted a book that a friend had showed me a few days earlier, called Gueuze and Kriek. It’s a really great book and I recommend that you buy it if you’re a fan of lambic but the copies they had at 3Fonteinen were in Dutch. It’s also expensive. If I lived in Brussles I’d be here regularly. My only complaint is that they are the highest priced lambic around, though admittedly they are the best.

Guess I forgot to rate this place, oops. Visited October 2012. Small shop with all the gueuze, kriek, and schaarbeekse kriek you can handle. They also had the Armand seasons beers available. Nice choices of glassware and some other assorted items. We were helped by Armand and his wife, who were both very friendly. Got to try some of the distilled gueuze as well.

Went here for the 60th anniversary celebration. There were more aged beers available than usual, and brewery tours were available. Fantastic kindness from the family and staff, great beers. Great prices on 3F products. On a usual visit, though, you probably shouldn’t expect to find rare gems here.

Put a quarter in Armand and he wont stop talking. He’s very passionate about his beers, so it’s always a pleasure to visit the brewery. You have to be a bit lucky to get to try some lamibc, as it’s not always availalbe. Also the shop doesn’t have a lot of specialties available all the time. So, don’t be disappointed if you wont find any gems. But definitely worth a visit.

Armand was so kind to offer us a private visit of the brewery, with no prior planning. Thnaks a lot! The barrel age room is so nice. In the store you may find some nice lambics.

This was almost a pilgrimage for me cause 3 Fonteinen is one of my best breweries! Walked in after taking a couple of bus from the center of Brussels (better if you reach it with the car), in the shop there was Armand and his wife chilling, we started talking to Armand and from his words you can understand how passionate he is about is job and how the problem in 2009 (at the old brewery) almost "killed him". He started again And his doing right as always! He also gaved us a small tour of the brewery also if that day was not programmed! Hope to come back as soon as possible to see and try new brews from his brand new brew house! Prices at the shop are incredible (24€ for the Armand4)! Next time hope to visit also the restaurant that was on holidays! Good luck Armand, you are always the best!

Worth a stop if you’re in the neighbourhood to load up on 3 Fonteinen brews. Selection is decent, but quickly sold out a lot of the time.
