Nice little shop, small but jammed with good bottles including all 3 Westvleterens when I visited (Dec 07).
The lady behind the counter was helpfull and knowledgable pointing out some good beers which I really liked when I got home.

Nice place if you want to buy mainstream belgian beers, but dont expect any rarities. A place more for the typical tourist than for ratebeerians.

Sort of mainstream in the ambiance, but the selection is quite good. Easy to find, which means a lot of tourists and asorted gift packages. I’ve been there but decided to buy something somewhere else.

Visit paid March 2nd 2008. A small little store, too small for me to be able to relax while looking for great beer. Very good selection of Belgian beers. Friendly staff, but I noticed one peculiar thing. Once I had picked a bottle from a shelf and put it on the counter, one of the clerks put a new bottle in the front of the shelf instead of putting at the back of the row and pushing the remaining bottles one step forward. This way, some bottles will spend a lot of time on the shelfs before being sold. In fact, some of the bottles I purchased were several years old, something I discovered when I came home from my trip.

Like the Brugge store this one looks pretty cool, lots of beers on the shelves with fairly broad selection. The overly warm temperature was concerning to me, especially when one shelf is directly under the heating vent. I meant to do most of my 2nd batch of shopping here, but ended up buying things elsewhere. Lady behind the counter was helpful, answering some questions about Brussels for me. Remains the most convenient place to pick stuff up in Brussels, but if you have time for both I’d start with Beer Mania.

The sheer number of bottles makes this place interesting for me. Maybe they do not have so many rare beeers but the good location and the rare occations I will be in Brussels makes this place intereesting. Especially as I think the service is great. The people are friendly and almost smiling. On top of it they also seem to know the beers they have.

Bottleshop that I popped into as I was only in Brussels the one night. Good limited selection, but the woman behind the counter seemed to know her stuff about Cantillon. Good range, nothing particularly stunningly rare, but right in the centre and good for a few.

This was a very good looking store, but I had already purchased enough stuff elsewhere to fill my luggage. It’s in a very touristey area, but they didn’t just run with that.. they have a solid beer selection to go with the inflated prices! Service seemed attentive, but you have to let ’em know that you’re really into beer and not just a clueless tourist.

Had a good range of beer, but did not have what I wanted. The shop was very warm, and the staff very helpful. Would visit again.

Good selection form most visitors, though I did not find any real rarities. Westye beers relatively cheap, a broad range of other beers from lots of brewers, big and small. Lots of glasses and souvernirs,
If you are pressed for time, this one is excellently located for filling your suitcase.
