The store has completely changed since the last time I visited. The son of the old man has taken over I found out. They have more selection now than before, great glasses selection and certain beers that I dont find in brussel or Brugge. All beers you find also cold, before they didnt have this. Prices have also changed, less pricey now than before, except for the West Vleteren, 6 euro.. They are open from 10.00 am - 11.00 pm. The son is more helpfull than the father. Overall I like what the son has done to the shop, much better than 3 years ago.

I think this place is much better than it seems. Not a huge selection, but what they do have isn’t bad by any sense of the word. Managed to find a retired bottles of 3 Fonteinen for a very reasonable price, so I left happy. The guy working behind the counter helped me find a couple of things, so the service is better than I expected too.

Looks like a corner store that got out of hand. Huge selection of beers but the guy at the counter looks like hes running a 7/11. Nothing rare here. But a decent selection nonetheless

Little bit overpriced shop with a lot of famous belgian beers, but nothing very special. Nice ambience, friendly stuff. If You are in Antwerp, and Youare only in Antwerp, You must visit the shop.

Small store, just south of the Grote Markt. It’s under restauration, but open. It also sells cigarettes and liqour. At the back (and in the window) ther are beers. On top are the glasses. Also gift packs, for example a glass Kwak with some bottles. Small bottles are 2,50, big ones 7,50. glasses are 5 euro. Friendly staff. Nice for a souvenir, but I know better beer stores.

(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.

Small store in a house currently under renovations. Older gentleman behind the cashier, will let you look around in peace. Some nice gift-packs, and some decoration items here. If you make it to the Grote Markt, might as well stop by, he also sells cooled beers that you can consume right away.

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.

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.
