An alright beer store with a focus on Belgians, but prices are somewhat high in comparison to Malting Pot or Malt Attacks and even though the focus is on Belgians, it doesn’t seem like they have too many of the smaller breweries’ available. There’s a bar here as well so you can drink your bottles. Some ’rarities’ (by local standards) like Stillwater or To Öl.

Hmmm.... Weird place. Went there for a drink. Had to let the owner know what i wanted and he’d choose for me. Was offered something which didnt match up what i wanted, so i took a second glass, same story... Prices were average to high. Selection is ok, but nothing amazing. VIntage bottle selection is strangely kept somewhere in the middle of the sunlight, and a lot of vintage hoppy blonde beers, seems strange to want to have one of those

Nice shop with a bar. Good selection although the prices are a bit high since one can find some of the beers in other shops. What impressed me the most was the fact that some of the beers are always exposed to sunlight. Friendly stuff.

Shop with a bar in the back.The service was ok, selection is nice, with vintage beers section and some of the beers not available in other shops I’ve been. Prices rather high but not stupid high. Good to see if first time in Brussels, but for revisit there are better places.

Me and Loz visited Beer Mania in Brussels on wet and grey afternoon on Saturday 21st March 2015. Beer Mania is a half shop half bar. The front part of this place was the shop with the back half laid out with a few tables and chairs to offer a sort of bar/tasting area. We browsed the shop part first, the prices for ’some’ of the beers on the shelves was frankly staggering. They had a vintage section with a few dust covered random bottles, one took my eye as I have a few of them at home, namely a 2004 bottle of Boon Framboise Mariage Parfait with authentic dust on it, it was a scandalous price, wait for it...yep..€94, an unbelievable amount of money for a beer that isn’t that difficult to obtain. In my eyes that is overpriced by at least €65-70. We had one of the Mea Culpa beers in the very posh and rather sexy glass, again at €55 just to purchase the glass, I thought another example of over the odds pricing, however the beer was jolly decent and reasonably priced. There were a few people in here and it was a pleasant way to while away an hour later, but there are much better bottle shops in Brussels, in fact we went to one straight after called The Malting Pot which seems to rather bravely buck the all to safe and traditional route adopted by most of the other Brussels stores as it sells a great selection of foreign beers. So Beer Mania is fine but I cannot see it being a regular haunt of mine, the bar lady was lovely but the barman/owner was a little rude and short with some customers.

Reasonably small shop by Belgian standards with a bar and seating area at the back. Really seems like a tourist trap more than anything with high prices and a not overly inspiring selection. Some vintage beers on the shelf with ridiculous prices. Particularly disturbing that they’ve been kept in a cellar for many years and now are just left to soak up the daylight. Wouldn’t bother revisiting.

Big store short walk from the center of town. A good selection of belgian beers. Prices are a little high, but not stupid like the tourist traps in the center. Not much service at our visit, had to wait a while to pay. Possible to have a drink in the nice patio in the back is a plus.

Came across the place more or less by accident while paying a visit to the comic strip shop nearby. Nice selection of belgian beers, was a bit shocked by the prices of beers available in supermarket at much lower prices. The owner was quite busy with some hardware / computer problems but answered my questions in detail. Didn’t have any list with me, so I didn’t buy to much beers. I found a millevertus I didn’t know, some beers from Struise and just as I was about to pay saw the famous Westvleteren 12 costing, (12€ for a 0.33 bottle...) . I thougt when will you come across this next time and bought one. There is a very nice bar in the back of the shop, but as my wife was impatiently waiting for me outside, I will have to come back another time to sample it ;-)
