“Nice shop with good selection of all kind of Belgium and Foreign beers. Foreign beers including things like La Calavera, Jester King, Hitachino Nest, Mikkeller and so on. I saw a lot of bottles I've never seen before in a Dutch / Belgian beer shop. Free parking in front of the shop. Friendly staff. Prices are ok to very cheap. For example all Jester Kings EUR 14 and one of the La Calavera's EUR 2,50. Worth a detour.“

“Een zeer goede service, een schitterende selectie, wij rijden maandelijks 150 km om hier bier te kopen. dat zegt genoeg!! update Voor de zoveelste keer vandaag naar Oostakker gereden, je kan soms hebben dat je ergens op uit gekeken bent. Bij Geers is dat net andersom, hier is het zo veel te zien dat je (denk ik) nooit uitgekeken raakt. Geers vergelijken met de tour de France? Col buiten categorie!“

“If you have the time, make the trip there! Quite far off, but if you are not by car, there's also a direct bus line from the central Korenmarkt in Gent. Huge selection, for example a wide Lambic selection and also lots of interesting imports, all for very good prices. If something seems to be out, don't hesitate to ask at the cash desk nonetheless, that's how I scored two rare Lambics for ridiculously low prices! Very friendly guy. Without doubt one of the best beer shops in Belgium!“

“Excellent beer warehouse a short drive north of Gent. Primarily classic Belgian breweries but where other such places tend to fall short with modern craft from Belgium and further afield Geers has a small but decent enough representation of stuff from across Europe. Around 30 de-proef brewed Mikkellers. Good lambic and saison section. Good range of glassware. Excellent prices. Some spirits and wines though didnt look at those. Felt a bit like a record shop when going to the till surrounded with flyers, posters and beers behind the counter. A must visit when in the Gent area.“

“Quite large, old-fashioned bottle shop focused on Belgian beers, including lots of classics, new craft beer and lambics, most of it for resonable prices. The international selection is also quite nice, many of the Scandinavian ones brewed at Proefbrouwerij, but also some Americans, British or even Germans I haven’t seen elsewhere. Overall it’s quite a broad and varied selection, but I expected them to have even more specials. The shop itself is easily reachable by car, and you can park just in front of it. Staff was friendly and helpful as well.“

“Large warehouse with a good selection of primarily Belgian including a few rarities limited to one bottle per person. They also have a smaller selection of Scandinavian (Mikkeller, To Ol), English, German and American beers. The prices are very fair and service was helpful.“

“Finally got to visit this ’classic’ great beer shop. They have a great selection of Belgian beers, including some good specials and a great lambic selection, with rare stuff. International selection is okay, but needs a little improvement. Prices are a bit cheaper than average. Good shop.“

“Big shop with a huge selection. Focus on Belgian beers. Prices are really good and you can find so many different bottles here. Very nice prices. Too bad almost all the shelves with Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen were almost empty.“

“Als ingeweken Gentenaar ben ik natuurlijk goed vertrouwd met deze zaak. De sfeer is er zeer goed, je kan er zowel op eigen houtje rondstruinen door de winkel, ofwel advies inroepen en enkele biertjes laten aanbevelen. Of facebook volg je welke nieuwe aanwinsten er zijn toegekomen en dan ben je weer klaar voor een nieuw bezoek natuurlijk.“

“Visited the 19th December 2015 - Near to Gent this place is one of the best beer shop visited in Belgium. The beer selection is just amazing! Mostly belgium beer but really great breweries difficult to have on a shop as Cantillon, De Dolle... And for a good deal. The foreign beers are present too but on a small place but really great selection with really nice product like BFM or Mont Salève, and also some classic like Brewdog, Mikkeller and Thornbridge for a good price. Staff is friendly. I really recommend you to visit the place if you are in Gent.“

“What can I say about this place that hasn’t been said before. I drive across to Ghent with the primary reason of visiting this place and it didn’t disappoint. Located in a small village in the northern suburbs of Ghent, it’s worth having a Sat Nav to find it. Note it’s closes at lunch for 1 hour, so I had to make myself busy. Inside is an incredible range of Belgian beers at great prices. Notably features a nice range of lambic beers too. Highlights for me were plenty of Tilquin, HORALS megablend, Girardin, De Ranke and de Cam. I also bought a case of Saison Dupont 75l for 26 Euros! Best beer shop I’ve ever been in and they also do a few good shelves of American, Canadian and British beers. For example they had a bunch of Dieu de Ciel beers in stock at good prices. I could have stayed in this place for hours. Also very friendly and helpful service. I look forward to return to this place in 2016.“

“I’ve known this shop for a very long time and being in Ghent often, there is no escape from them: they are a standard in anything happening in Ghent that has to with beer, and deliver to numerous pubs in the area. It is an absolute delight shopping here: a very large amount of Belgian breweries are represented, including specials from Wallonian micro brews and stuff like that; the lambic beers have their own department (and sometimes include rarities as well) and since a few years, they are heavily extending their range with foreign beers from the US, Denmark, New Zealand, Italy and so on. Prices are mostly very reasonable, service is efficient and friendly. Great shop, always a pleasure to visit. I reckon a couple of hundred of the beers I rated on this site, came from here... It’s difficult to choose with all the contenders, but I tend to regard this as the best beer shop in Belgium (though De Caigny remains a strong contender). Should revisit urgently, as their Facebook page, not yet in existence when I first came here, posts one interesting new beer after another...“

“I have heard dozens of times about Geers and after all of these years I finally wound up here. You need to come here with a car, parking is super convenient. I expected this place to be bigger given all the stories (it is pretty big). Lots of Belgian beer available here including some Cantillon beers which I never really for sale outside of the brewery anymore & the new Oud Beersel beers here. Prices are good, service is friendly. You have foreign beers here which the other handful of stores in Belgium that sell such products don’t carry. There are some beers here which you probably won’t find anywhere else. Considering that Hopduvel seems to be paying less attention to their foreign selection, this is the better of the two Gent stores these days probably. This is just a wonderful place, not much else I can say about it.“

“Visited in 2014. Great store that is hidden away in the suburbs. We almost thought we had gone the wrogn way when we found it. It is close to the highway so easy to get to by car. We arrived just before their lunch closing time but they old lady at the counter kept the store open for us. Very friendly staff. Great prices and great selection. It felt similar to Hopduvel in terms of selection and prices. I think Hopduvel had more foreign beers on our visit in 2011 but Dranken Geers had more sour beers. Hopduvel had a way better supply of Struise beers.“

“Best store I’ve visited so far. Huge selection of belgian, dutch beers cheaper than in the Netherlands, danish, american brews too. Huge place wth shelves and shelves of beer, where you take your little basket and wonder around, up and down and then back again without having anyone bothering you. If something is finished on the shelves there is probably a box of it on the floor that you can open yourself and take what you want. Some beers with a limit but that’s not a big of a problem I guess.Great prices, worth going with a car and stock up.“

“Very good place on the outskirts of Gent. The ambiance is a little warehouse-y but the selection and the prices are great. I didn’t see much staff so it was more of a do it yourself shopping experience which was fine by me. Lots of good Belgian breweries, with some of the more obscure stuff from each brewery (picked up 2 Dupont ticks here). Some rarities as well. Good prices (Dutch beer much cheaper than in NL). Definitely a must visit for stocking up if and when in the general area.“
