Very friendly and good service. Nothing that rare (though if they did have anything rare I’m sure it’d go in no time) but they do have Caracole and Struise beers. Most punters seem to buy Leffe beer and glass sets, but I guess that makes sense. Pretty good compared to all the other shops which sell absolute rubbish around the Grand Place.

Great selection of beer but the place can get packed. Service may be a little slow. Always willing to help out customers.

Extremely central - a minutes walk from the Grand Place and a couple of minutes from Delirium is this little store that gets a bit cramped with all the tourists. There are so many stores nearby that have a reasonable selection of safe beers for tourists so this place has to do something special to stand out - which they do. The selection is really quite large with several interesting beers and at not too high a price for the location. Also here are lots of beer goods like glasses, clothing and posters which are a bit pricey. The lady who was working on two of the times I visited (possibly the owner) was knowledgeable and spoke to me briefly about beer when she found out I am a fan of beers. Nice place.

Francoise has a nice selection of lambics (3fontainen Scharbeekse and oud Beersel incl.) and tries to have Achel and Westvleteren all the time. It is possible to order in advance, too. Place is touristic BUT for example Westvletern´s are CHEAPER than at not-centrally located Beer Mania!! Highly recommended!

A very friendly lady served me on my recent visit, and had an excellent knowledge of her products. Great selection of beers, gift packs and glasses, including some rarer stuff like Regenboorg. Worth a visit and easy to find, being on a main tourist street near Grand Place.

De Bier Tempel is located near Grand Place, not very well hidden amongst the chocolate stores and the tourist shops
This was a really nice place. I didn’t buy any beer here because I purchased about 18 different bottles at Beermania about an hour before. I just came here to see if they had any very rare gems that Beermania didn’t have. They didn’t.
The selection though, was still very well received. They had about 150 to 200 beers in various sizes and also a pretty extensive selection of glassware. T-shirts and books, most notably Tim Webb’s Good Beer Guide and Lambicland were sold here as well.
The service was great. I asked the lady at the counter if I could pay her for some shipping supplies. She laughed and just asked what I needed, handed them to me and told me not to worry about it. Her generosity was very well appreciated and I bought a Cantillon tulip to thank her.
It is interesting to note that Westvleteren was available here and one euro cheaper than Beermania. Also, if you are looking for Cantillon, come here, because Beermania does not stock Cantillon on principle. Apparently, Cantillon is non-traditional to them. But yet, Timmerman’s, St. Louis and Mort Subite, which they sell, are traditional lambics. WTF? Anyway, come here, but after Beer Mania.

Cozy little shop with a good range of Belgian Beers. Kind of touristy but still they have some not that known Belgian Beers. Prices are touristy - Service is very nice.

I love this place. Happened to just be walking by and noticed it. Great selection of Lambics, Belgians, and others. The owner was nice enough to bubble wrap everything that I bought after I told her where I was from. She even gave me some free coasters. The selection was great, if only I had more room....and money.

Nice little shop right near the Grote Markt. Very crowded when I went in and those who have been there can attest that it doesn't take much to fill it. Very good selection, from what I recall. I picked up De Dolle Lichterveld Blond and Oeral as both were previously unseen by me at the time. Probably should've spent more time in there but we were rushing on our last day. They wrapped the bottles up nicely for me and were very friendly to us. Recommended when it town.
