This is the place to shop for beer. Having Geers on one side and Hopduvel on the other. Two great shops in such a small city. The selection is very nice and the prices are seriously cheap to reasonable. The obscurity of their selection reminded me a bit of the old Mitra Van Bergen... Service is super friendly, mailed BoBoChamp if they could set aside some bottles: no problem. It’s like a big drink market with a good Belgian and foreign side on the wall on the left and a lot of crates throughout to the back. In the front some wines, gifts and magnum bottles. Wishing with such a cheap selection it’ll be good here as it once was! Anyways! Great selection and prices, friendly service and could even taste some special stuff from Struise. Thanks people at Hopduvel!

Neat and spacious shops, amazing selection! Mainly Belgian beers, but this is one of the few places to find some good American craft beers as well. Is also a retailer for home brewing equipment. Whenever you are in the vicinity of Ghent, any beer geek should visit this place, period!

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.

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.

A warehouse like ambiance for a beer store but they make it up with the selection of beers. An excellent representation of foreign craft beers at really good prices. They even had a few bottles of 3floyds and Cigarcity beers. Other guests include Mikkellers, Stillwater, Evil twin, Jester Kings, Lost abbey and so on.. good representation of the Dutch craft beers too. I found the Belgian beer range to be a little bit pricy (in comparison to Geers). But they did have a good range of the Belgian classics and gueuzes. This adds on to another good beer store in Belgium.

This is indeed a "drankencentrale" and not a cosy little neighbourhood shop, but it’s all about the beer, right? Extensive selection of Belgian beer at reasonable prices, personally I was most excited about picking up a couple of new lambiks. Some rare imports are expensive and the really unique ones are just crazy - but what’s the correct price of a beer you really want and can’t get anywhere else - there is nothing unfair about those high prices

Great beer store run by a passionate RB’er. There are basically 3 essential / only beer stores you need to know / visit in Belgium – this is one of them. All the new & interesting releases in Belgium pass through here, if you want the new Belgian stuff, you need to be here or at Willems. This place offers stuff that Willems doesn’t have and vica versa. Of course whilst Willems has only Belgian brews – Hopduvel is one of the few place in Belgium where all the foreign releases pass through. Great selection of Mikkeller, De Molen brews, Brewdog, Evil,… that sort of guys. Plus a lots of USA imports which you are not likely to find anywhere else in Belgium. Very close to the station, only a couple of stops from the station with the tram. Only downsides are – 1) I wish that I lived closer & 2) I always wind up spending way too much money here :)

Visited this Sunday morning. Spacious hall with loads and loads of beers from mostly Belgium, US, Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands. Prices are good for the abroad stuff, Belgian beers are a bit more expensive than what I’ve seen in for example Leuven, but still very cheap compared to prices in the Netherlands (or Bruges, where I was the day before). Had a nice time strolling around, looking for some good unrated beers, but had a hard time refraining myself not to fill my car to the brim. Great shop.
