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.

Very good service, nice tasting room, willing to ship. Didnít seem the least bit touristy when we were there, indeed, itís 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. Itís 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 youíre in Brussels though.

In books they say itís a must to go there, but it was a bit dissapointing. Many well-known beers you can buy elsewhere. Glasses very expensive! Not worth to travel outside the center of Brussels. The special Brussel-beer, gueuze and lambic, can be bought in the center of Brussels too.

Good service but selection was someway dissapointment after visiting Dutch beer shops. I didnít look like 400 beers and not much rare stuff. Those who want Cantillon: visit the brewery, they sell their bottles dirty cheap there :)

(Update 7/2007) A good selection, although not nearly the advertised 400 - at least on show. Had some vintage bottles, which seems a rarity in Belgian shops (10+- yo Chimay blue mostly, at 10e/0.33 and 15e/0.75). Prices a bit lower than around Grand Place, but of course expensive compared to supermarkets. Quite a walk from the touristy part, but worth it. Oh yeah, theyíve upgraded their credit card reader - it works now! Still no proper receipt, but thatís what you can expect.

I visited while I was in Brussels, and Nasser volunteered to delay shipping a bit so it wouldnít sit on my porch until I returned. So my order supposedly shipped a few days ago and should arrive soon. That was very helpful.
And I was able to pull together a good shipment of a couple cases worth for a reasonable price. The young woman who helped me early on spoke English well and seemed to know a lot about what they stocked, etc: The service is excellent.
A few of the shelves seemed to be collecting a lot of dust, but most of those were aged/vintage beers and very expensive products. On the whole, it looked like they had a pretty good turnover rate, and the selection is obviously pretty good. Rodenbach, Westvleteren, Drie Fontainen, Malheur Brut, etc.
Itís a little off the beaten path, but the store itself is well maintained, and it seems to be well-run. I didnít have any beer in the back of the store due to time constraints, but that seemed like a cool set-up as well. All in all, pretty excellent shop. The only downer is the lack of Cantillon products. Iíve heard from others that thereís a little political issue between the owners of the two respective establishments, and I donít find that at all hard to believe given the nature of beer and strong opinions in beer loving areas. But even despite not having those, itís still a good selection and a nice little shop.
