Two minutes walk from Grand Palace. Complaisant and knowledge women behind the counter told me that there is 570 different (only Belgian) beers and 180 different glasses. Pretty common selection, but also some very rare. I was there around 6 p.m. and only one man came in. The prices are reasonable, but I rather prefer both Amsterdam beer shops.

Very conviniently-located in the heart of touristic Brussels. A good selection of beers and beer-related merchandise. A bit pricy but that’s understandable with such a central location.

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.

Just a block of the main square in Brussels tourist district. And of course filled with people who are tourists and know nothing about beer, all cramped into a small space with lots of overpriced glassware. The selection was above and beyond the sotre’s usual clientèle. Outside of its sister store in Brugge this is the only place I saw a full lineup of Smisje brews, Cuvee de Ranke, and Vapeur Legere. Not as friendly and welcoming. outside of that a lot of the nice sour stuff. Not as friendly and welcoming as a lot of other stores, and too small. But if you visit this store first might as well skip the Brugge one.

A big selection of beers with some unusual stuff such as Pannepot and plenty of glasses and other memorabilia. Space is cramped - fortunately few people were in the shop when I visited, but it could get difficult to move around when crowded. Service was efficient with all the bottles being placed in protective wrapping. Worth a visit.

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.
