Not the most practical building for a beer store but if you want a beer, the owner has it, or he will do his best to get is. Very friendly owner.

Might not be the most pretty or cosy beer shop I’ve ever been to. But who cares? He has practically every Belgian beer! If you throw a party, you can pick up cases and you can return them. By the bottle. You don’t have to buy half finished crates! Should come here more often, but it’s hard to do so, with Geers and the Hopduvel at 10 min from my house.

The "Loods" has a great selection of Belgian beers. Prices are a bit high, but understandable when you see the amount of different beers they have.
The pub is very nice and chill to sit and relax while you’re enjoying a new beer. The guy behind the bar is friendly and has a great knowledge about the beers he sells. Always different beers on tap.
You have to go here because you want to tast new beers, not for having a wild night or something ;)

Called 2 times to confirm the openingshous of the shop before I left. No response, also nothing at the voicemail, only "vacas", no openinghours or something. So I drove 50km to get to some kind of stable that looked like it got evicted 5 years ago in a hurry... No information around about openingtimes or something, and the times at the website seems not to be right, cause the doors where closed. Called again a few times the number that was painted at the truck standing there. No response... What a shop... At least hang out that the shop is closed, that you are on vacation, that...Or pick up the phone and update your website! Chance is small they will see me back there.

Really a unique shop with extensive Belgian beer selection, reasonable (store) prices, and very friendly service from the owners. Too bad you need a car to get there, so the cold beer selection is mainly accessible for locals or your passengers, if any. Visited on a quiet Sunday evening, so hard to say how well everything works during rush hours. No barcode scanners, so be prepared to spend some time here, if getting one bottle of each beer. Plenty of label beers, yes - and the shop part was also pretty hot with sun shining through the roof and no air conditioning. Most of the bottles had collected a fair amount of dust, which makes you wonder how long they’ve actually stood there. Small bottle selection was extensive, but 0.75s well below average. On the other hand, there were several larger bottles (1.5 liters and up) available. All this is, of course, just unnecessary whining from a spoiled beer geek. Average customers buying a case of their favorite beer, or spending a few hours in the self-service bar will probably do just fine. Big plus for the bar for being non-smoking, and a minus for arranging the beers alphabetically and not by brewery.

Very extensive collection of Belgian beers, esp. the big Belgian breweries. Watch out for label brews! Very helpful staff, but the service is too slow, sometimes waiting for 15-20 minutes at the cashier. They definetly need extra staff. Very nice café downstairs, with a very big selection. The prices in the shop and café are quiet high by Belgian standards. Because of the extensive choice many beers are already expired. That’s sad.

It’s a beer shop, a beer pub, and a festivity saloon.
Opened in July 2008 !
We visited recently and were AMAZED !!! Those people are running an extraordinary beer pub / beer shop. Really too good to be true. But it IS !!
800 different Belgian beers available, and this at shop, equal bar. The cozy bar is located at the basement.
No taps, only bottles. Bottles have to be chosen by yourself out of the big row of fridges placed alongside the wall. Yes, self-service. Original, and unseen here in Belgium!
This place is without any hesitation the revelation of 2008 !
BTW, their original house beer ’Koantjesbier (a re-take), brewed at Proef, was excellent !

THIS IS NOT JUST A BEERSTORE, but BOTH shop and bar. Opening hours: as stated above, plus Fri 14-21(shop)/20-03(bar) Sat 14-21(s) Sun 18-...(s)/28-....(b).
In the most unlikely place, but a real oasis in a Belgian beerdesert. Just beginning, but plans are there, and seem just realistic. Have revived the Koantjesbier (Proef) as exclusitivity. And the self-servic in the bar is something you ought to see for yourself.
