A good shop to find a hard-to-get beer and then sit and enjoy it. Nasser is an enthusiastic entrepreneur who recently launched his own beer, the Mea Culpa. Worth it just to drink out of the bizarre glass. Also jazz nights once a month. A good place for out-of-town visitors, and from here you can walk to Place Jourdan for the best frites in the city.

A great store, friendly and personal service, and the tasting room at the back is a splendid feature. All the Belgian micros you can imagine, including the Westys. And the standard prices are not shocking at all.
Lots of glasses if you wnat that, too, as well as gift packs.
Exclusively Belgian beers.

Probably the best beer store I have ever been to. Ultra classy fitout with a casual and relaxed bar where one can have a quite beer (about normal bar prices). Owner is totally on the ball and knows his stuff. Pricing was about par for specialist stores although if you are only seeking mainstream gear (inc. Chimay, Duvel etc) supermarkets will be a cheaper option. I dropped e12 on a Westy 12 but in vain it turns out given I had one ’on-premise’ at Afspanning ’t Waagstuk in Antwerpen a few days later. A must visit when in Belgium.

Visited with Eric. A very good collection of only Belgian beers. The Westvleteren sold for 12.5 euros a pop, we bought a whole box full. Very helpful staff. Bar in the back where you can sample your wares.

I have been there twice, 2003 and 2006. Good selection, but a bit pricey. The 1.97 Euro price almost all over (for 33 cl) makes some bottles very expensive - even more expensive than getting them in Sweden...
The staff is helpful.
They also have Westvleteren, but wants 12 Euros a bottle...
If you can find a "real" drink shop (simple warehous) you could find a equal selection with lower prices. But beer Mania is located more conveniently.

A good selection, nothing special; I’ve been there last time in 2004...

Very good service, nice tasting room, willing to ship. Didn’t seem the least bit touristy when we were there, indeed, it’s well of the beaten path and was interesting as one place that got us into a different kind of "real" neighborhood. Good selection, including the only place besides Delerium cafe where I found Westvleteren on my trip. The beer was cheaper at the bar, though! It does have a better selection than the myriad tourist shops, it really does. It’s ludicrous to compare it to the shops in the center of belgium. Those places have low quality beer where the beer here were good stuff, and there definitely is more variety. And the service not only exists but is very good. Nice ambiance too.

An ordinary shop with a ok large selection but no rare finds. A bit on the expensive side as well.

Nice selection, including some good Saisons. Well laid out and quite friendly staff. Less touristic, and a little bit out the way. Well worth it if you’re in Brussels though.
