Debated listing this store but now that Bierwinkel is closed this is the best thing in Antwerpen. Small shop located on the SW edge of the grotemarkt, old man running the show but he’s quiet and lets you look around. Dusty shelves with decent selection of trappist and lambic bottles, nothing super rare but a few things that I have not found outside of Brussels and Brugge. They also have Westvleteren 8 and 12 for 7-8 euro each.

(Visited 12/2011): This beer store, which doesn’t earn any points for creativity in their name is located in the highly-trafficked Town Square area.
The interior is relatively well-organized with shelves on both sides, categorized for the most part by brewer. Over 200 beers available pretty much all from Belgium. They had Westy 12 behind the counter as well.
Service was decent, the clerk was kind enough to steer me toward a Westy and was friendly and accommodating despite the language barrier.
Overall there are surely better stores in the city but given our time constraints it was a nice spot to stop quickly and grab a few beers on the way back to our tour bus.

This small beer store right in Antwerp’s center is a decent option if you’re stuck shopping in the middle of Antwerp, but do not expect miracles in terms of selection. Ideally, hop in a car for nearby Grobbendonk.

Average, touristy looking beer shack located right next to Gollem. They had quite a few bottles, but nothing too exciting, bar a bottle of Zomer. Prices seem pretty rather high anyways. It’s a shame Antwerp doesn’t have a decent bottle shop to speak of. Meh.

Very central location and design to attract tourists, it seems. We bought a few beers here, but I’ll guess there are better beer shops in town than this. The arrangement of bottled beers on the shelves was very well done, but the choices so and so (visited, 29.04.2011).

There’s 280 kinds of bere here (written on the banner above the entrence, and on front window). Looks old and dusty. Good selection of trappists, few rare beers. Also few beers avaliable cold from the fridge.

Right in the heart of town with loads of tourist (including me). Just a small shop with shelves of beers and a few other items. Decent selection with a few rarities, some Westy 12 for 20 euro I believe, also a few lambics. Prices were fairly high. Not many beer stores in Antwerp that I saw so this might be one of the only options if you’re looking for beers to go.

Cool little bottle shop between Gollem and ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Reasonable selection of Belgian beers, but nothing crazy / out of the ordinary. Prices seemed a tad steep, but I’m not familiar enough with the local area to properly assess that. Worth a quick stop in when in the area.

Very average selection and aimed at tourists, therefore expensive.
