This is without question the best beer store that I’ve had the chance to visit. The place is located near the Palais Royal (5 minute walk) and is very cosy with a little bar in the back of the shop. Naser, the owner, is very nice and will try to accommodate you as much as he can. The choice is just incredible with all the best of Belgian beer being represented. The glassware is also very impressive as well as the beer gift pack and the 1500/3000ml choice of beer. I suggest you ask Naser what you are looking for since he usually can get it in a couple of days. There is also a bit of rare beer such Rodenbach Alexander and Westy red cap thought I felt the owner prefers to keep them as souvenir. It is also worth noting that the shop offer shipping.
A friend of mine almost lives here on Friday nights. The place is quaint, with connoisseurs only, and the service is super friendly. They’ve set up a bistro space in the back so you can sit down and drink. They have a SUPER wide selection of beers (speaking from a north american standpoint) AND glasses. A must if you’re going to Brussels.
Huge selection on beer and glassware. Has the Westy if you are willing to pay 12eur for a bottle. Prices are rather high but at a place like this you go for all the rarities, not for the Trappists that you can get for a third of the price in a supermarket.
The owner was extremely helpful and forthcoming. He brews his own beer called Mea Culpa which is OK but nothing special. What is really groundbreaking though is the glass he has designed for it, it is truly an amazing piece of art.
The place is well-lit, clean and very well-organized. Will visit again whenever I’m in Brussels.
The selection of belgian beers is unmatched in Brussels (having lived there for many years, it is much better than the beer stores near the grand place) and Nasser the owner is very helpful. The only slight downside is the cost of some beers, e.g., Westvleteren, and aged Chimay, however, those beers are not available elsewhere.The fact that you can enjoy the beer in the back makes the experience even better.

The number one beershop I ever have visited. If you want a belgian beer, you will find it here. Maybe not 400 different bottles when I was there, but they have loads of interesting beers. They also sell glasses and gifts. Wonderful service. My 76 different bottles all were packed in boxes by the owner.
This was my first stop on my Belgium trip, so I may be a bit biased. First this was one of the bigger stores I came across and not in tourist central as well, which I liked. Its well layed out, lots of room. Lots of the sour stuff, almost everything you could want. This was the ONLY place I could find the 50th Ann. 3F and Crianza. Also, a lot of the lambic came in sizes ranging from 25cl to 75cl, nice touch to have so many choices. Lots of different aged Chimay, no other store had such a choice. Also there is a bar in the back, clean, with wodden tables, and well placed beer paraphanalia, even an outside section. Small cheese and meat platter available and most of the beer that is for sale. The owner also chatted us up, asked for help about openign a store in NY and gave free bottles of his Mea Culpa. If I had to visit on store in Brussels this would be it.
