Claims to have 250 belgian beers but the shelves looked a bit empty. Not that I counted, but I have a hard time believing there were 250 beers there still. The bottles in the window has obviously been there a looong time with their sunbleached labels. Prices seems to be at tourist level and there werenít anything on the shelves that is hard to find. You might as well pop in if you are in the area, but donít expect too much.

i know better stores than this especially when the store located at vogelmarkt was still there , but i think this shop has a nice stock of special and not commonly seen beers like beer from bokrijk , mongozo fruitbeers etc ... he also carrys a quite big stock on proper glassware , and has some beer packs with glasses like : leute bokbier , pauwels kwak , tripel karmeliet and quite a few 75cl bottles of beer .... only the bit anoying thing is the price for some beers .. some beers are normal priced others are actually too expensive for what itís worth ... but overall worth a view when in antwerp

Small store, just south of the Grote Markt. Itís 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.

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.

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.

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.

Has nice selection but very over priced.
small bottle costs 2.5 Euro and 750 bottle costs 7.5 euro. make sure you only buy beers you can not get at the supermarket, since there you will be able to buy 6 pack at the same price.
also has lots of glassware, I didnít asked for the price.

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 heís 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.
