The only problem I found with this store is that they didn’t give me the beers, I had limited space to pack beers and 750’s weigh a lot.

I had high hopes for this place, which drove me to walk considerable distances to check it out. The location is well off the beaten path, in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood, a good 30 minute walk from the main tourist area in Brussels (a good and bad thing). Once there, one will find a decent sized shop with some fairly standard Belgian brews, and, unfortunately, a good amount of empty shelves. It only took me a few minutes to peruse the stock and determine that there wasn’t a single bottle on the shelves that I hadn’t seen somewhere closer to the city center and for a cheaper price. I asked the guy behind the counter if there was another room or something, but, alas, there was not. I also asked if he had the "good stuff" behind the counter somewhere, to which his reply was "I have some vintage Chimays and I have Millennium Gueuze, that’s all." Of course, he was asking 150 Euro for the Millennium, a laughable price. There is a small area towards the back of the store for drinking what you buy, but I didn’t stick around long enough to enjoy a brew. Overall, the trek to this store proved to be a major disappointment. Bier Tempel had a much better selection in Brussels.

One of the best store for tourists! Costly and not of high quality.

This is the beer place in Brussels I kept coming back to. Here you could try beer in the back in a café setting, and buy beer you liked to go, so it was something of a one stop shop. Pricing on bottles and selection were quite good, perhaps due to being a bit off the typical tourist track (i.e. where Beer Planet is). Passed thru “Little Congo” on the way to a clean, well-lit store with all the beers I expected, and a few I didn’t (to include 1 house brew). It’s a combo bottle shop and café many beers are available for tasting @ tables in the back in a café setting…you can even get frites and other snacks. Nasser, the proprietor, is an Iranian-born Christian (which I found interesting). He was very pleasant, but his recommendations for never really turned out great…but I was the only one in my party with that opinion. Prices on bottles to-go were pretty good (€3 for most bottles), but there was some gouging on other stuff. $199 plus the cost of beer to send a case home €12 for a bottle of anything Westvleteren and €69 for a bottle of the house beer (Mea Culpa), its signature glass, and a packet of chocolates. So while pricing on bottles was good, pricing on other stuff seemed out-of-whack. I visited here a few times – I liked the shop, it was convenient to where I was staying, I liked the owner, and I liked the try-while-you-buy option.

The store with the best selection in Brussels. Lots of great beers from all over Belgium. Helpful staff. A bit pricey for the rarer stuff but most of the beers are reasonably priced.

What a great place. Huge selection with some great lambics. Best of all is that you can buy beer of the shelves for beer store prices and proceed to drink them in the back with bar-like service and a bar kind of atmosphere. Drank a bunch of beers like this while here. Very fun. Oh, and I got my Fantome glass here, which was the only one I saw in all of 2 weeks beer touring in Europe.

This was my first stop on my Belgium trip, so I may be a bit biased. First this was one of the bigger stores I came across and not in tourist central as well, which I liked. Its well layed out, lots of room. Lots of the sour stuff, almost everything you could want. This was the ONLY place I could find the 50th Ann. 3F and Crianza. Also, a lot of the lambic came in sizes ranging from 25cl to 75cl, nice touch to have so many choices. Lots of different aged Chimay, no other store had such a choice. Also there is a bar in the back, clean, with wodden tables, and well placed beer paraphanalia, even an outside section. Small cheese and meat platter available and most of the beer that is for sale. The owner also chatted us up, asked for help about openign a store in NY and gave free bottles of his Mea Culpa. If I had to visit on store in Brussels this would be it.

I liked this much better than circus although in Brussels I was told circus was the better place... only downside here might be the pricing.

Well-laid out and spacey with a big selection of beers, with the stand-outs for me being those from Walloonian micro-breweries. The owner helped me search for beers on my list and I got to try out a couple of them sat in the cafe area at the back of the shop, which had a comfortable feel to it. Prices looked ok to me. Well worth a visit to its slightly off the beaten track location.
