Interesting selection, quite varied, but very high prices. Geared toward the tourists, I think. Does mail order, which is a plus. But if youíre in Belgium, there are many cheaper selections with similar or better selection.

Tourist trap. Small confined store (though thatís not uncommon) with a decent beer selection but not top of the class for rare bottles. Was able to find the Cantillon Lou Pepe Geuze and Framboise which were sold out at the brewery. The lady working there was nice enough, but I wasnít interested in dropping a lot of money at a place like this. Full of touristy trinkets and souvenirs. Also, who wants to carry around a bunch of bottles in this area of Brussels?

As the name suggests, this is a shop devoted solely to beer and the worship thereof. Itís in one of the main touristy streets in central Brussels and has an eye catching, if sometimes slightly tacky, window display. I did a rough count and estimated there were at least 500 beers - all Belgian, some in presentation packs - plus beer related items such as glasses, tee shirts, fridge magnets, bottle openers, lanyards and even Delirium slippers. Although it attracts a lot of tourists buying holiday souvenirs, the serious beer hunter would probably find something new there too - at a price. (Last visited 2 October 2012).

The most visible of three central beer stores in brussels, Bier Tempel has a very good selection, often including the Westys and beautifully displayed to impress the constant flow of tourists rushing in. COnsidering the prime location, the prices are not all that outrageous even though they may be the worst in Belgium. If youíre only in Belgium for a day, it makes sense to shop here, but if youíll get out of Brussels, youíll find a much cheaper basket.

Busy beer store just off the market place. A wide range of all things Belgian and a huge glassware collection behind the counter. Its worth poking your head in and having a look around.

Ha, Iíve been here. Nice little store. The walls are lined with shelves holding a vast menagerie of Belgian brews. When I visited this shop I was a beer novice and didnít really know what I was looking at. I would like to return...

Popped in here on Friday 16th December 2011. Great selection of beers, though having shopped at Dranken Geers earlier in the day it was easy for me to resist the temptation, though I did notice Westvleteren 8 at 9 euros which whilst pricey isnít anywhere near as pricey as Iíve seen it in Amsterdam. We picked up a glass for my dad, replacing one which heíd recently broken íTroubletteí I think it was. The lady/owner was really helpful wrapping this and then a small T shirt (not purchased here) along with a pink Delerium elephant (purchased here) for my brothers new-born baby, she couldnít have been more helpful even giving me a silly Santa hat to wear. For a city centre store this was much better than I was expecting and compared to others that I nosed in, it was also far, far better. Ok so it is probably a little pricey, but one can imagine the rental prices in this area would be astonomical and if on the search for the odd bottle I would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Great Belgian selection in the middle of tourist town, the owner was extremely friendly and helpful and packed everything for the trip back home. Ah, Belgium...

No rarities, but when you are used to Italian and Swiss shops as I was at the time, itís still very good ;-)

The service was fantastique. My humorous American repartee left the lady running the store in stiches. Westvleteren 8 and 12 were available today - about half a case of each. 6.5 EURO. Very good selection.
