Nice and very good sorted beer-store next to the Motorway. Great selection, prices vary - "normal" beers are cheap, harder to get stuff gets more expensive (and is sometimes even more expensive than in other places).
The staff is absolutely unfriendly, even a bit rude. They don’t seem to be interested in helping you and even at the checkout they are very unfriendly.
They sell Westvleteren for 10€/bottle...

I have to give it to them, they have a nice selection of lambics & gueuzes. But this should not come as a surprise, as their shop is right next to most of the (Brussels) lambic brewers.
Which surprises me that they have such high prices (e.g. Cantillon Bruocsellas are 15€ whereas they are only half of the price at the brewery itself, not too far away).
But the thing that surprises me the most, is their totally unfriendly service!
Me, a returning customer, wanted to buy a couple of special lambic bottles and a crate of Orval, and was refused to do so. So called reason: they limited the amount of bottles for sale per person (which was NOT indicated anywhere), and you needed a special Orval-card to buy a crate. Note: I previously DID buy a crate of Orval there, gave it back emptied, after which I could not take a full one back home again (so I lost my precious Orval crate).

Not really friendly, but well situated next to the E19 and with a good portfolio of lambic and other beers for reasonable prices. Worth a visit.

Visited after an afternoon of lambic hunting in Pajottenland. Able to find some interesting (fruit)lambics and geuzes. Not even that large of a selection of Belgian beers, but a decent selection, mostly regional. Friendly and helpful service.

Went there looking for some gueuze and at first I couldn’t find any. Then I looked at the back of the shop and found the gueuze room: pretty great selection (I found bottles of 2011 Mega Blend for 8€, which is pretty awesome) and beer from most gueuze producers.
If you’re looking for gueuze, a good place to go.

Easy accessible store with a nice selection of Belgian beers; even some rare onces but most of them are general available Belgian specialties. Friendly services.

Been there 10+ times. The conclusion stays the same. Occassionaly you can find a nice Cantillon or geuze overthere, but in the end, it’s a moderate store with very bitter people who serve you. I won’t go there anymore, and wouldn’t recommend it. UPDATE: recently they are selling Hommage for no less than 100 euro......

Near the junction of the E40 and Brussels Ring. I visited the store by chance on my way back to Brussels from Sint Ulriks Kapelle in Jan. 2010. It is local bottle shop though has a superb selection of products.
Sales assistant is very polite. I felt worthy enough to drop by the store.
