t0rin0  (1516) Do Not Resuscitate, California | December 3, 2013
Visited October 2012.

We had to make a last minute run to Antwerpen from Brussels to drop off half a dozen cases of Cantillon to be shipped back to California and while here we decided to get a quick place tick and some over priced knock-off McDonalds. The whole scene was comical. Of the three people in the 6-speed Focus one had a Belgian drivers license but does not actually know how to drive, one had an American license but does not know how to drive a standard, and one has no license at all but knows how to drive a standard. Guess which one drove.

The setup is interesting in that you literally drive into the building. Iíd hate to have to load cars all day inside a smog-filled building but I guess a couple of Rochefort 10ís would make me forget all about that. Or maybe the carbon monoxide poisoning would do that for me and no beer would be needed. The selection was great for a couple of degenerate tickers such as ourselves as they had a bunch of cheaper stuff that we donít get in the states like some of the Timmermans varieties. Seeing the prices of some of my favorites makes me angry that there isnít a cheaper way to get this stuff to California. Rochefort 10 for 1.3 euro per bottle? Iíll take 10 cases please. Not much in the way of service but who cares, this is like the Costco of beer stores. Actually the service is more than happy to load your car for you but I didnít really interact much with them in the store.

77ships took me here. Nice selection of beers, not a whole lot of rarity, but great prices and there will always be something you want.

A drive in liquor store of sorts. Parking is essentially inside, which is kind of weird, but it works. The beer selection here isnít huge, but certainly adequate. All Belgian beers, of course. Prices are not bad and the styles really run the gamut. Worth a stop if youíre nearby.

A decent beerstore. Good for the locals to and get their favourite macroís and ther most common smaller breweries (family brewers etc.) Nothing very special though

Cool warehouse type of looking place that you actually drive into as you go to the garage. Great service, polite, help you loading things into your car type of thing. Quite stocked about the whiskey section, no rare stuff but definitely nice, some really cool stuff, probably irrelevant on RB. Some vodka, absinth & exactly 1 sake. Well-priced soda. Beer wise, wholesale, crates of macro stuff, some decent big beers, quite a bit of Proef beers. Expect wholesale here, donít go for rare or import type of stuff. Will probably find some okayish small beers though. The is the place to come to if you want to buy a crate of Orval, St. Bernardus or Jupiler, that kind of stuff. Prices are of course excellent, donít forget to calculation in the deposit on the bottles.
