Great place to buy beers when you are in Rochefort. It is very well hidden and there is no ad to be seen, but we got the bottle shop as a recommendation of a local women in whose house we have got an holiday appartement. She told us that the prices at Scaillet are way cheaper than in any other supermarket and that the selection is just big. So we drove there the next day and after some searching we finally found it very well hidden among other industry. Pubs, restaurants, hotels, bars etc. from the area buy their beer there, but also normal people can go there. The staff speaks little bit English, is friendly, helpful and it isnít a problem to bring back all kind of Belgian bottles for the deposit system. The selection is just overwhelming. There are so many beerswhich are available in a crate or single. There is even a corner for homebrewing with bags of special kind of hops, Lambic etc. The selection of the beers is great - some of them Iíve never seen somewhere else. Prices are -for Belgian standards- exceptional low. E.g. paid for a 0,375l Cantillon 2,59 Ä, for most normal small bottles around 1,40 Ä. Cheapest Belgian Ale -leaving the cheap brands on the side- was available for 0,56 Ä. And for each beer you also find the right glass to buy. Will go there tomorrow again and can only recommend it. You can text me for the directions (because our navigation system in the car didnít find the road).
