Likely the largest selection of bottled beer within 30 km. The manager understood us well enough and enthusiastically dug up unopened boxes of De Ranke bottles which proved to be in fine shape. Belgian beer is well represented, France’s larger BdG names are on the shelves as well, and there were two bottles unique to the shop, contract-brewed by/for the owner. Without a doubt it’s a place worth visiting if you’re in the West Flanders / Cassel region for beer.

Beershop on a farm in the countryside not to far from Poperinge. Look for a small sign along the roadside saying "Bier Shop".
We visisted midday, and had to wait a short time after the lunch closening for the shop to open. After the owner opened the shop, and right away turned to talk to a flamish talking customer, it took a good 5 minuttes before he cared to turn on the light in the room where the racks with the beer where. A good selection of mostly standard belgium beers. Selection at first looks bigger than it actuallly is, size a good number of the beers are placed 2 or more places on the racks. Still plenty of beers to choose from, nothing extraordanary tho. Dirt cheap prices.

Big farm house near the French border. Lots of Belgian beers for extremely low prices. Recommended if you’re in the area.

Visited on Saturday 20th October after De Vrede and the Struise old school house (about a 20 minute drive from the latter)
Rambling old shop with a good bottled selection encompassing all Belgian styles.
No rareties here but a good spread of the basics at decent prices.
Service was fast and efficient and a really friendly cat helped us out at the till :)
Food and a shelf full of glasses are on offer in a room to the rear of the shop.

This shop is set amongst a rambling set of farm buildings just to the north of Abele village. South from Poperinge, this place is on your right, 400 metres from the main road and before the village signs. From Watou and the St Bernadus brewery, head into Abele and turn left onto the main road, you’ll see the flags and buildings quiet clearly on your left once you leave the village.
Well known to Brits for years (because of its inclusion in Tim Webbs books) this uneven floored farmshop stocks over 300 beers, some commissioned and only sold here, there is also a host of glassware too. It is very close to the French border, so chocolates and cheeses are also sold, along with fruit, veg and other foodstuffs.
You are left alone to push your trolley round, or at least we were. Took our time and filled the said trolley with some goodies. Very little English spoken (or needed), they understood credit card easily enough though!
If you are in this part of Belgium it is well worth finding, I’ll be using it again that is for sure.

Hard to find (panel "bier shop" with red paint on a wood plank on the left side of the road between steenvoorde & poperinge).
Looks dusty inside.
Choice of beers a little narrow & classical.

Go-to retail destination for Belgian beers
Typically €1 - €1.5 per bottle (330ml)
Huge range, they (nearly) got it all.

Just back from Belgium and thought this would be worth looking up. What a gem of a place! Excellent range of beers etc and a really jovial owner to chat to. Beers still mostly in the 1 to 1.5 euro price range. I will be back for more next time.
A word of advice though. From next January 2012, the shop will be closed on both Mondays and Tuesdays as the owner "is getting on" in years. Also he does close for lunch from about 12:00 to 13:00.

Been using this charming place for over 15 years. Good selection - most of the local beers and others from elsewhere with an apparent emphasis on west Hainant (Dupont, Vapeur, Abbaye de Roc, Binchoise). You can purchase bottles from the shop or crates from the barn. Pricewise, a crate of 12 75cl St Bernardus Abt is 40 euros and Van Eecke Abt/Prior is 35 euros.Just down the road towards Abele is an excellent chocolate shop called ’Praline Palais’
