I’ve been to a lot of places, and this is the finest, most extensive, bottle shop I have yet to patron. Screwy hours, but the selection is worth the time to travel to Gent. Epic floorplan that is overwhelming. Only having room in my suitcase for two bottles and walking into this place was torture. Fair prices from my perspective. The only thing they could possibly do to make their selection better is to offer more vintages for some of the bottles, but that’s being exteremly picky. Workers were antsy to leave for their siesta and started turning the lights off, but otherwise world-class experience. Thank you!

Very nice place to visit as beer lover. In my eyes the best beer shop in Belgium. A lot of Belgian beers in all categories, but even better is the large amount of beers from abroad: Danmark, USA, The Netherlands, Norway,... Even very rare beers. Prices are very fair. The service is also very good. Friendly people. The best ’drankencentrale’ of Belgium!

Good shop with a very nice selection of beers. Good knowledge of the beers and always prepared to help you find something. They tie with Geers for best beershop in/around Gent and the whole of Belgium for that matter.
MESSAGE FOR FOREIGNERS VISITING GENT: if you read this, you’re probably planning a visit to Belgium, and Gent in particular. I’m always interested to get to know other ratebeerians, and if you come from an interesting country, we can maybe to an in person beer trade? Contact me!

I did not make it any of the other highly rated shops in Belgium but after the recommendations of a couple of members I am not sure I ever will. One trip has convinced me that this is one of the best shops in the planet. Not only is the selection of Belgian beers amazing the prices are very fair. If that’s not enough you can occasionally find things from the US and other places (like Clown Shoes). Be sure to let BoBoChamp know you are coming and he’ll take care of you. The best times to visit are during the week - when I was in the shop there were probably no more than five or six others. On the weekends I imagine it might get much more crowded. Be sure to make it your last stop in Gent so you don’t have to lug 15 bottles around while sightseeing.

Extremely good selection of beer. I was especially impressed by the large amount of non-Belgian beers. Everything nicely organized. I was planning on visiting Geers on the same day, but I sort of spent my daily beer allowance at Hopduvel. Some prices were a bit high, too high for me at least! Either way, top notch place.

Wow. Amazing beer store. I could spend all day here. Amazing selection of beers. Prices were high but, the selection and location can’t be beat. If it’s the one beer store you visit in Belgium, you’ve lucked out.

Un très large choix de bières peu trouvables américaines ou nordiques avec évidemment beaucoup de bières belges, les prix sont abordables. Très bon biershop!

If you’re in Gent, this is a "must" for any beer lover to do your shopping. Huge collections, and always found some "rarities". The staff are very helpfull. Also a good place to find the right glassware. One of my favourite places in Belgium for shopping.
