Friendly little shop in front of the Le Vaudrée II pub. Very small physical space with about 2/3 dedicated to beers. Despite its limited space they manage to pack a very good selection. Many Walloonia micros that I never saw in Brussels/Antwerp/etc. The lady in the store was extremely friendly and really wanted to help me to the best of her capacity but get this: She does not drink alcohol!!! Worth the detour for the Walloonia micros if like me (and most tourists) you mainly visit the big cities in the Flanders.

A small beer store across the street from Le Vaudrée II. Offers many of the beers for sale in the restaurant, focusing mainly on Belgians but other countries are available. Sell some wine, eau de vie, syrups, and make gift baskets. Some glassware.
Rating is for the new "Beer Lover’s Shop". Visited on a Thursday afternoon. Small bottle shop in the center. Service is super friendly, but I’m not sure about their beer knowledge. Selection is quite limited, but decent. The best beers are probable 3F OG/OK and Cantillon Gueuze/Kriek. Value is good on most beers.I hope the "poor" selection is just because they are in a new location and it will get better with time.
Just a leap across the street from the Le Vaudree II. Don’t know if I would have found either without a GPS. I’m glad I did, its selection is outstanding! Which is good for me because it is still within a short distance of where I live. The prices are a bit high, but the care taken with wrapping and packaging make up for knowing your purchase will make it home safe. I’ll visit there more now that I know where it is......sorta with GPS!

Very good range of beers, on the expensive side but considering the paucity of beer places in the region it’s probably understandable. Nicely set out, good service. In fact, I’d probably recommend just grabbing a few choice bottles from here instead of trying to negotiate the impossibly set out beer list and ugly decor over the road.
Small store with a pretty good selection. I don’t know if I got ripped off on some small bottles of schnaps or not. Hard to get to and limited parking but with GPS, it’s easy. The lady was friendly. Good place.
Nice cosy beer store with a wide selection of Belgian micros, Lambics and trappistes. No Westys though. In the back they have a huge variety of glassware. I bought myself 2 Bellevue Geuze galsses which Ive never seen before. The service was nice. I didnt really ask any beer related questions but I had all my beers packed in special bottle carrier bags. Great idea! The prices was cheap compared to the prices I know from Denmark but maybe a bit expensive for Belgian standards. T-shirts, caps and that sort was available as well.
(old location review) proprietor claims he stocks 800 beers, not sure if all are on display as the store is tiny, staff is friendly and helpful and usually speaks at least some English, two problems - 1. lack of climate control makes it hot during summers which can not be good for the stock and 2. low stock turnover means plenty of bottles are past their "best by" dates - I make sure to check each bottle I buy now for ’best by’ date if one is provided. If you find it closed go across the street to the bar and ask if someone can open it up for you - they usually will.
thumbs up that the guy in the shop was maybe the only person in liege who’s willing to speak english. we where there with 4 persons. but the place is so small that you can’t walk around. selection is so standard. worse thing was that the guy didn’t even know who ’de struise brouwers’ are.
Awesome selection of beers and hard to find in the maze of streets in Liege. The selection of beers was pretty awesome, but not sure how fast they’ve been aged because of the temperature of the store. Definitely worth the trip for some of the retired stuff. It can get crowded if there are more than 4 people in the store.
