Case  (21) , Germany | April 9, 2008
Huge selection on beer and glassware. Has the Westy if you are willing to pay 12eur for a bottle. Prices are rather high but at a place like this you go for all the rarities, not for the Trappists that you can get for a third of the price in a supermarket. The owner was extremely helpful and forthcoming. He brews his own beer called Mea Culpa which is OK but nothing special. What is really groundbreaking though is the glass he has designed for it, it is truly an amazing piece of art. The place is well-lit, clean and very well-organized. Will visit again whenever I’m in Brussels.

Walking from subway around 700 I got a little nervous after passing a possible drug deal (guy in a car accepted a small white something from two guys on the street), an angry young men fight further down the street & some interesting folks out for the evening. I was probably being silly, I’ve ’braved’ far worse at home & not worried. The street seems to morph into upscale restaurants closer to the store restoring my faith. It’s better than I pictured - Less cramped than Tempel & less steamy temperatures also. Does not seem quite as extensive as Bier Mania, but there is lots to choose from, including vintage Chimay & 3 Fonteinen. The latter is a bit pricey for me, though I am not 100% sure I made the right choice leaving it behind. The prices overall feel quite cheap compared to elsewhere. I have a couple at the tasting bar, a well appointed, chic, wooden affair & not the tiny seating area I had pictured in my head. Owner is friendly without smothering. Bottles from Dieu du Ciel on the bar indicate that I have been preceded by some fellow Canadians! Resident dog is awesome - more bars in North America need to have an animal! Owner is having an interesting chat in French with some regulars (?) but I only catch enough to hear ’Ratebeer’ and ’biers Canadien’. Had a good time, in future I would start my beer shopping here I think, and maybe check others after.

This was my first stop in Brussels, and I ended up doing 90% of my take-home business here. The store has a nice open layout, with beers well-organized and the proper (see: cellarable) beers a little dusty. They have plenty of brewery and beer-specific glassware, which covered most of the stock. The owner was very helpful, and was all about promoting his Mea Culpa beer. Prices were reasonable for smaller, more common stuff, and on the high-end for rare, aged stuff. All-in-all a good exerience, but I dropped some mad cash there.

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.

Glouglouburp  (423) Montreal, Quebec | April 15, 2007| Updated May 1, 2007
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  (163) Phuket, Thailand | 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.
