Borresteijn  (234) Zaandam, Netherlands | December 24, 2012
Visited on a Saturday. Large shed/warehouse with an extensive selection of Belgian beers and some liqueur-specialties. Lots of local brews, quite a lot harder-to-find Belgians (in NL, that is..), small breweries, all trappistes except the Austrian one. Had a great time looking for some nice treats. For the sourheads: they have almost everything here. And itís dirt cheap compared with Dutch prices, Belgian beers 33cl between Ä0.80 - Ä2.75 (Struise Reserva PBA), 75cl bottles for around Ä4,50, lambics were quite cheap too. Worth a visit when in the neighbourhood.

Very good beer warehouse in the environment of Leuven. A lot of Belgian beers, also some craft beers from Struise, Alvinne,... No beers from abroad. Friendly and helpfull staff. Worth a visit!

Warehouse style shop with a huge selection of Belgian beers available, and what they donít have, they can usually order.

Huge selection of the average and progressive Belgian brewers (little to no foreign beers) but perfect if you are looking for special beers for mass consumption (e.g. when you throw a party). Service is good.

ABS Drinks is the kind of place you only find in Belgium. Where else would you find a beverage store where beer entusiasts from London hunt for specialty beers from their spreadsheets while the locals get their crates of Stella and CocaCola for the weekend? High-end beer specialist and neighbourhood drink shop under one roof. Huge selection of the finest Belgian beers, very good prices, friendly atmosphere and competent staff. Definitely worth the drive from Brussels, or if you donít have a car, there is a train station nearby.

Will definitetly stop back when in the Leuven area. Nice little place!!! Customer Service was ok,, but the cashier was pretty helpful wrapping stuff up!!!!

Excellent Belgian beer shop, nicely displayed selection with friendly staff (with excellent English which was a help). All the usual trappist suspects and some select brews too. The value for money is also excellent.

Lots of great beer (lots of variety of Struise, Alvinne, De Dolle, De Ranke, Dupont, De la Senne etc). Truly a glorious shop. Print out the travel map though, itís a little tricky to find the first time. Definitely worth the trip if youíre in the neighbourhood.

Nice little shop off the beaten path. Decent selection. Some of the prices are a bit higher on a few things, but most of the prices are well below what you will find elsewhere. They do tend to run low on a lot of the good stuff. But if you want to tick a bunch of stuff you wonít see around, this is a good place to go to.
