A relatively big store just a few steps from Grand Markt. The selection is more than decent, probably the second best I saw in Brussels, but itís also a bit pricy. The owner really is no help at all, just sitting behind his desk chatting on the computer. Still, you might at least go check it out.

We visited Beer Planet on Thursday 19th March 2015, I was surprised that Iíd never been here before, itís central very close to Delirium (round the corner) so canít understand how Iíd missed it up until now. The lady/owner was cleaning her large front window when we arrived. It is an attractive front, mainly wooden, the shop is narrow but long. Beers are laid out in style as opposed to brewery, which I guess suits the shop and clientele rather well, letís face it they are going to get lots of folk who say stuff like íwell he likes his beer but only usually drinks Guinness or stoutsí, cue the owner taking them to the stout section to discuss the merits of each on offer. There is a good choice here and even the beer geek is likely to find something of interest. I picked up a De Dolle Stille Nacht, Iíve got plenty but one more isnít going to hurt. Prices are on the higher side but you are in central Brussels so comparable to others. It is fine, but for people like us who are able to drive to other places with more extensive offerings and better prices they are unlikely to see me very often.

Fairly small shop in tourist center Brussels with a decent but often overpriced selection. Service is basic and pretty much limited to taking your cash but at the same time I keep returning and finding the occasional gem. Worth just popping into if your in the area but not worth going out of your way for.
Not much to add to existing (recent) reviews here. We accidentally walked past it and... itís a tourist trap. Small selection for a Belgian beer shop and prices that are very unattractive for Belgian, even for Brussels center. 1000 bottles by *ass more like 250 and almost all boring as hell. Okay some Euro craft import (25 or so) but nothing you canít find elsewhere. The most horrible service (or rather, lack thereof). I donít mind that shops like these exist, but every serious beer tourist should stay away clear.

Centrally located store in Brussels with regular Belgians as well as some more rare ones including some imported (3 week old Pliny the Elder was available for Ä10 during one of my visits). Prices are a bit high but on the other hand they had a few hard to get beers so itís definitely worth a visit.
No service to speak of
Strange store in a touristy part of town. The guy at the cash does not give a flying f*ck about anything. Iíd be curious to break a bottle on the ground just to see if heíd react. Anyhow, selection is really interesting - they have de Cam beers, pretty extensive lambic-gueuze selection actually, and the prices vary immensely from a good price for a bottle to are you serious you have to be frickin kidding me levels. Worth popping in to see if thereís something you like, I got a lambic fruit tick here.
