Big big warehouse kind of place. It is not the best ambiance ever but also not really important. We didnt get any service. They didnt even say hi at us. Ah well. The selection is impressive. A lot of belgiums, some other europeans and a little selection of USA beers. The value is absolut great.

A warehouse like ambiance with crates of beer all over the place.A wide range of Belgian beers, be it industrial, the classics, abbeys or the craft beers. A very good lambic and gueuze selection. A good representation of English, American, Scandinavian, Dutch and French craft breweries. The pricing is excellent and definitely one of the low cost beer stores in Belgium. Absolute value for money and a must visit beer shop for every beer lover.

A warehouse on the outskirts of Gent with a huge selection of Belgian beers, a few imports (Mikkeller, De Molen, Brewdog ... the usual fare) and an especially comprehensive lambic selection. Value is fantastic, staff talkative and friendly. Seems very popular, as the place was absolutely ransacked on the Monday after the ZBF.

Easily reachable by car, Geers has one of the biggest selections among all Belgian beer shops.
They actively keep on growing their wide range, adding both rare Belgian beers and expanding their choice of foreign beers that used to be limited to a few German breweries to Mikkellers as well as English and American beers.
Mostly relaxed and friendly service, knowledgeable about their beers and clearly passionate.
Great prices as well, even more so compared to nearby Ghent... You can safely pick your choice knowing that you’d have to look hard to find a better deal in a Belgian beer store except maybe for a (marginally) small difference.

Visited on Saturday morning 23/03/13. Located just off the Gent ring road ’Geers was easy to reach by car and we had driven from DHVL in around 45 minutes.
Large warehouse type of affair stocked with a huge range of beers and other alcohol products. You can easily spend an hour browsing as we did.
The range is predominantly Belgian as you’d expect but there were also a good spattering of Mikkeller beers, US stuff from the likes of Great Divide and Jester King and plenty of Brewdog and other UK beers such as Thornbridge.
Service was good, 2 people on the tills, didn’t have to wait long. You can purchase an empty crate (of 24) to take your beers away in for E2 which is a refundable deposit should you wish to return it.
There are also toilets available and one of the workers was happy to give me the Wi-Fi code. On this day all purchases came with a free can of Maes Radler ! A rates a rate !
A great beer store and well worth making the effort for be you in the area or not - this warrants a 1 hour diversion for definate!

Unbeatable selection of (extremely) rare and more common beers. Prices are reasonable and owner is very helpful. Only problem is that you are overwhelmed and must make a selection which beer you carry home.

Absolutely a must, if you:
- want to buy Belgian beer
- are located in the vicinity of Gent
- have independent means of transport (aka a car/van), and have some time.
Very good choice, the usuals and a lot else besides. Hardly ever you won’t find something new. Non-Belgian beer used to be rather restricted, with a notable exception of the Heller-Trum "Schlenkerla" beers, and more recently the Schneider Weissbierbrâu range. But jumping on the bandwagon of growing Be interest in foreign beer, the offer on foreign rarities has been constantlly upped, making it a real treasurecove at times. Dominiek and Vera, as daughter Leen will gladly assist you if you have any questions. Very reasonable prices, which is rare in (the) Gent (area). MIND! this is really Oostakker, not Gent, about twenty minutes driving northwarts, along the canal/port zone.
