Visited in May 2015. Located in the more touristy part of Brussels, but this one actually had more reasonable prices. Beers line both sides of the narrow store. They also sell chocolate and some other foods that I didnt pay a lot of attention to. I bought a few bottles here and left happy. I would stop in here again. Of note, the selection was not as large as some of the other shops, but there was plenty of interest and the pricing is what made me happy.
Tourist rip off like most in the center. Shouldnt be on here...

Tourist trap! There’s way better beer stores in Brussels centre! I have seen beers here that are sold under an euro elsewhere and where between 4 and 5 euro here! Says enough! Even selling beers that lost beer under the cap and made a sticky substance on the neck of the bottle! Move on!
Very fancy, well lit and well cured store, which screams total tourist trap considering its emplacement, near manneken pis between 4 or 5 fancy chain chocolate stores. Selection includes the usual suspects, at high prices. completely useless to visit.
There are a few of these shops around the main tourist district, this one being fairly close to Mannekin Pis. The selection is pretty standard Belgian beers and quite high prices, especially for Westvletern 12, a full 6 Euro higher than most.
Bottle shop just over the street from Manneken Pis statue. About 200 standard belgium beer, but at absurd prices. Some of the beers i picked up in other places earlier on the tour have a 100% markup here. Totally a tourist trap
This is in the same intersection as the Manneken Pis statue kitty corner from Le Poechenellekelder so you get two place ticks, some good beer, some good chocolate, and to see the tourists swarming the statue all in one intersection. What could possibly be wrong with that? Well the prices for one. This is a touristy gift shop, not really a high end bottle shop. I guess it’s good that your local schmuck can grab a bottle of Cantillon gueuze not knowing what it is but they’ll do it at 50% more than you could get it for at the brewery and also not climate controlled. I won’t hate on the place as much as the previous raters since I think it’s great that some better beer is presented to travelers that may not know anything about it but I certainly won’t be shopping here. You can also get trinkets, chocolates, and glasses here if you need a quick gift for someone.

This is a tourist trap, I think that most beer geeks will avoid places like that. Prices are high, little interesting stuff to be found here, you know the drill. Yes there is some loon’s & whatever here but I think most beer geeks will just swing by Cantillon or a finer establishment. I think people in general are more than acquainted with this kinds of places and what they represent.
Totally pointless to be entered on RB. Big touristy chain overpriced at best. All the stores are ideally located in main tourist spots with big names having the best deal.
Expect nothing good especially from a store located next to Manneken Pis, that whole street is a trap. Priority is to sell, and not to advise you on beer or make recommendations.
