A very friendly place to sample then buy a wide variety of bottle products. Matching glassware, also for sale. Reasonable prices: 25cl 3 Euro, 33cl 3.50 Euro for most national beers. Staff will even chill special selections from their hugh shelf inventory. Customers focused on tasting and not on smoking. Open since 1983, they’ll even ship to the U.S., albiet at 106 Euro for shipping. A beer oasis even for Brussels.

Good beer store out in the Congolese part of town. Well organized and the attached tasting room is pretty cool as well. Reasonably well-priced for the most part, although the common stuff can likely be found cheaper if you shop around a bit. The rarer beers are very expensive (13 Euros for a Westy 48 Euros for a 50th Anniversary Drie Fonteinen). Owner is quite eager to help you find whatever you are looking for.

Awesome beer store, selection is really top notch. Staff was helpful and very helpful. The prices are somewhat high, but I guess you will pay that for beers you can’t find everywhere. Glassware for almost every kinda of belgium imaginable. Definetly worth a stop if your in the area.

One of the best beer store in Belgium, if not the best. Nice selection of classic Belgians, obscure micros as well as some rare lambics. The owner (I think he was) is a beer passionate. Even brews his own (Mea Culpa) and I’m sure he’ll give you a bottle if you spend enough. In sept 2006 it was the only I found in my Belgium tour that sold Westvleteren (although pricey: 12 Euros). Prices are typical Brussels which means about 30% more than everywhere else in Belgium. I found most Belgian bottle stores display to be somewhat lacking but this one was the exception. Everything is nicely laid-out and logically grouped in the shelves. Pleasant atmosphere with room to walk around (not the case with most Belgian bottle stores).

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.

Stew41  (146) Woodend, Australia | January 12, 2007
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...
