Driving from Antwerp to Gent I stopped by this gem to check out the selections. A tad difficult to get to but there is PARKING around back so just drive on through the little gate. A huge beer store going back about 50 yards, the biggest beer store Iíve seen. As your walk there is wine to the left, beer gift packages, and an awesome selection of glassware that is well worth checking out, found a rare Westmalle and Cantillon glass there. The majority of the store is Belgians staples, they are laid in crates across the middle and back wall of the store. They do have a very nice selection of rarer De Struise.
What sets this place apart is an amazing selection of rare De Molen one offs in 18cl bottles and a ton of Mikkeller (Ba Texas Ranger and other rarities).
If you are in Belgium and tired of seeing the same old Belgian beers check this place out for some great and rare Denmark brews.
Highly recommend, a destination stop if your within an hour by car.

Extensive beer selection with too many to mention. Huge amount of Belgian beers obviously, but an impressive range of 75clís. Also the international beers are well represented with many from the States and Scandinavia. The prices were really attractive for the local stuff. Excellent beer warehouse.

Nice store in Ghent with a huge selection of beers. Very friendly guy working in there despite us coming in right before he was closing for lunch.
Great selection of De Molen, Mikkeller, De Struise, and Nogne. Did not see any Japanese or US beers like mentioned below, but I was in awe of all the great European selections.
There is also a small section for homebrewing. And I mean small, but probably adequate for amateurs. Plus with the selection of beer here, you probably wonít be brewing anything for a few years while you plow through the different beers.
Also a bunch of wine. Probably good stuff, but I didnít look.
Prices on beer were way better than a bunch of stores that specialize in beer. I would much rather shop at this gem of a place then go to Brussels to hit the top two stores there.

If youíre 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.

A must if you are in Ghent. Wonderful warehouse style store spacious and well laid out. On my two visits in June 2010, there were at least 15 "exclusives"- bottles from breweries that were not for sale elsewhere. Easy walk/bike ride from the Ghent tourist scene.

When studying at the Gent University, this was my favorite place to walk to. I drank about everithing they had to offer, which was (and still is) a lot. The store is more cosy than Geers, but the beerlist is slightly smaller. still enormous though, and de Hopduvel lies within the city centre. A must do!

Today it was the first time I got in to this shop. Itís a 35 minute drive, but it was worth it! Got some beers I had on my wishlist allready for a while. Got a conversation with one of the guys working there. Was very clear he knows a lot about beer also, gave me some tips, and we had a good talk about beers. When I asked about Tsarina Esra, they told me they were not for sale right now, but after a little talk I got me 2 little bottles, thank you. Got a beer I want to be my 100th rating, was thinking I should never find it...
They have a huge collection of beers, ofcourse :) Best shop iíve visited till now!
Edit: After visiting a lot i need to update, and give some extra points. The prices are sometimes a bit to high...
