went there with belgiuinabox’s kurt.
very big place, but the beers are ( widly spread’ . this could be fit easely in a place 10 x smaller.. its nice to have so much space when ’shopping’ but i feel like its a bit of a miss, that when you have THIS amount of space, you dont use it for more beers !
the offerings :
prices are certainly ok to me . variety ? well they have just got the usual stuff, with an exeption here and there. i guess. nothing ( that i know) i can’t find somewhere else. good thing is, they used their position near brussels to put geuzes from all breweries that make them ( even de cam) ) of course, as is the case EVERYWHERE , they’re not all in ...
guy was friendly, yet couldnt answer my question on what beer it was. overall, if you live nearby, definetly worth checking out. if you dont, there’s better things around you , probably.
also fun they have a mini-bar, i saw 2 drafts and empty bottles and glasses, a fridge,... yet we did not consume anything so...

This one is hard to rate. My expectations were high based on previous reviews and their online beer list. However, they were out of stock on most of what I was after. Big high marks for the owners. They approached us with suggestions that were spot on. Hopefully I can raise my scores after another visit.

BVS is one of the best beer warehouses there is. A car is essential! They have an extensive selection of all sorts of Belgian beers available individually or by the case. The lambic selection was extensive. The beers ranges from mass producers to microbreweries such as De Struise. Prices are unbelievable! €3.05 for a 750ml bottle of Girardin black label anyone?? Yes please. They also have a small bar are for tasting. The owners were very friendly and even opened up a bottle for us to taste. Will most definitely return. The only problem was the lack of free space in my car...

This place is a gem! Huge selection of almost every Belgian brewery that I could think of and a ton more than I had never heard of. Rare to standard and everything in between. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff. Best prices I found in Belgium. Not to far from 3 Fonteinen either so if you are in the area, both are worth the trip.

I will be short : This is a place to buy your Belgian beer ! It’s the best until now whole-seller I know that has a gigantic and rich selection of Belgian breweries. It’s just on Brussels periphery so you’ll need a car to get there but I am sure , you will be delighted. Even though it’s a rustic whole-seller but the stuff there is adorable. You can buy your beers per piece and the price is from far being the best around. There are around 3 beer specialized shops in the center of Brussels that can be jealous of the selection they have and the price is often cut in more then HALF ! A must for a beer-geek !

This drinks market just outside of Brussels specializes in artisanal beer. Mixed cases of small bottles or individual purchases are allowed. All Trappists except Westy present, including Achel and La Trappe. Lambics from the region include Boon, Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen and Hanssens, plus all the sweet ones. Other great breweries represented include De Dolle, Ellezeloise, Dupont, Geants, Blaugies, and so on. In some cases the beers are organized by style, so you see wits or saisons grouped together. A fun place to browse and fill up your car. The guys are friendly enough and at least one of them speaks English.
