50 AMBIANCE 2/5 SERVICE 3/10 SELECTION 13/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 1/10 OVERALL 7/20
Very large selection in a somewhat cramped shop. Prices were shocking, even by Brussels standards. Service was typical for Brussels.

great selection as with other similar stores, solid packaging, quick shipping. some prices seem ambiguously high though.

Well displayed store in the very center of Brussels, a short hop from Bier Tempel. The selection is excellent, maybe even larger than Bier Tempel and certainly than Delices et Caprices. I don’t know if the man behind the counter was the owner, but he offered just about the poorest service we’ve met in Brussels, not even getting up and constantly seeming displeased at our presence. For this reason, I kinda disliked the experience, but that may change from one day to another and the selection is great, even though the prices are in the high range as well.

Tiny shop packed with beers; no ultra-rarities, but at least some half-rarity; some Strise and Alvinne; some beers from very small breweries, not common to find; also some American and Danish and Scottish, although in this case the price is too high; also the other beers are not very cheap, for Belgium, but still acceptable. They have a beer fountain at the entrance, and that one smells like hell!

There are three main beer stores in the heart of the touristy Brussels. The more popular Bier Tempel, this less busy Beer Planet and the more beer-geek-friendly Délices et Caprices. Bier Tempel has the less interesting beer selection and is aimed more at regular tourists because of its nice selection of gift boxes, glasswares and such. Beer Planet and Délices et Caprices both have a good selection. You can score some decent items (limited Struise, etc.). Beer Planet fun to shop at with its nice display with lots of wood. I was surprised to find some cool stuff there, even by my beer-geek standards. Some hard to find Fantômes (like Saint-Roch), all the current Struise Black Damnations variations and some obscure Saisons for me to tick. Etc. I did buy some stuff that appeared to be past their prime at Beer Planet so beware. Délices et Caprices appeared to have a smaller selection but more focussed on interesting stuff. The staff seem to be more knowledgeable and is probably the place to go if you want someone to guide you through you purchase. But I didn’t find anything interesting there that I hadn’t already bought at Beer Planet. The prices are typical downtown Brussels. If you cannot go shopping at cheaper good beerstores outside the city (Alvinne, etc.) then Beer Planet + Délices et Caprices are there for you. They are very close to each other and both are worth visiting.

There is a special just now (010608). Buy 100 EURO of beer, and get a bottle of Westvleteren 8 gratis. They can’t sell it, I guess, so they are giving it away - sort of. No sign, but if you mention Westvleteren, like because you see it in the cases on the floor - look hard for little blue caps, they will detail the promo. English is a slight problem. Slight. They still claim over 600 beers. Clean and organized. The guy at the desk took me on a quick tour of the organization of beer types. Fantastic.

Good selection, manager when we went didn’t seem to care much, but that was fine. Prices on the whole seem a bit better than Bier Tempel around the corner, and the selection was a bit better. Lots of stuff at really good prices, some stuff very expensive.

Good selection, but I find the prices quite inflated. Never had any problems with service or shipping.

78 AMBIANCE 4/5 SERVICE 6/10 SELECTION 14/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 5/10 OVERALL 15/20
Smallish beer shop located in central Brussels. There is no denying the beer selection is good here: mostly Belgian, but also craft Danish (including Mikkeller) and UK (including Brewdog). Particular highlights are the lambics (lots of Drie Fonteinen) and De Struise. The prices are pretty expensive (even more so than bier Tempel), but you can’t get a hold of these beers so readily elsewhere. If you spend over 100 euros you get a "free" Westmalle Extra or Westy. All round a pretty decent, but pricey beer shop.

Nice little narrow shop that is very clean, very organized and on the pricy to very pricy side. (I find it amazing most of the other bottle shops put the bottles they are trying to sell right into the store front window, if you enjoy ‘light struck’ beer then these places are for you. If not then Beer Planet will do nicely). They of course have a wide array of Belgian offerings as well as Mikkeller, Hornbeer, Brewdog, Nogne and a couple of Stone brews too. I walked out with a Faro, a couple of Quads, Struise IPA and a few others. If in the area it is a good place where you may find something typically hard to get.
