A huge hall acting as a beer & spirit shop. Even though most prices were cratewise, they were also happy to sell by the bottle. Selection is very nice, with also some nice surprises along with the more common beers. Was quite a bit to walk though, so car is recommended.

A big hall with is used as a shop for spirits, wine, liquide and beer. It has been based on belgische beers and some times one or two beer from Germany of the Netherlands. You can also buy giftpacks.

Rather standard selection of macroís, some few special ones. Hoped for more.

Good choice, some beers youíl never find by others beerstores.
But not so good as Willems.

A warehouse filled with most of the essential beers youíll find in Belgium. No real rarities, though - and donít bother without a car. Donít get me wrong, as it really has a good selection... it just doesnít amaze you, after youíve been to Dranken Geers and Hopduvel.

Nice warehouse, though seemingly a bit dirty and dimly lid - but the beer selection is huge. I even found enough untried beer to fill up my suitcase for the flight home to Denmark - I think I picked up around 10 untried beers, and I didnít have time to search the whole selection, since I was in a hurry to go to the Kerstbier festival. The check out of the beers is quite slow, since codes has to be typed for each beer and the employee doesnít know all the codes. If I come back to Essen Iíll stop by again.

I think this was one of the best season beer selections I have ever seen. They carried tons of Christmas beers, including St. Bernardus Christmas. They had a vast selection of regular Belgium labels along with quite a few lambics. The only problem I noticed was that they had to type in codes for each beer you purchased; this took about 15 min since I had two assorted racks and about 10 75cl bottles.

Unlike Bierkoning I found they assortment pretty standard. Lots of InBev, Maes, Riva, all Trappists except Westvleteren and a few Flemish micros. Not much Wallonian micros. They did have quite some gueze (Lindemans, Troch, Cantillon, St. Louis, Belle-Vue, Girardin).

Good and varied assortment. Cantillon and other lambic beers available. Strong in seasonal beers and the smaller Flemish breweries. Very cheap compared to Dutch prices. Will definitely return.
