Visted in May 2015. Located in the touristy part of town. Lots of interesting Belgian and european beers available with a nice glass selection toward the back of the shop. Like other reviews have mentioned, you are pretty much on your own in here. No customer service, but I didnt really mind anyway. I can peruse a shop by myself. I didnt notice prices being exorbitantly high, so maybe the shop has changed in that way? Maybe the inflated tourist shop prices had desensitized me by the time I got here. Who knows. Either way, it was an alright shop.
Nice laid out place. good selection of Belgians and some other Scandinavian. The guy has no interest in any service for the customer, only to take the money. I have picked up a Black Damnation series here and i think some De Cam, the selection is good, with Hommage being displayed if you ant to spend 120 Euros
A relatively big store just a few steps from Grand Markt. The selection is more than decent, probably the second best I saw in Brussels, but it’s also a bit pricy. The owner really is no help at all, just sitting behind his desk chatting on the computer. Still, you might at least go check it out.

We visited Beer Planet on Thursday 19th March 2015, I was surprised that I’d never been here before, it’s central very close to Delirium (round the corner) so can’t understand how I’d missed it up until now. The lady/owner was cleaning her large front window when we arrived. It is an attractive front, mainly wooden, the shop is narrow but long. Beers are laid out in style as opposed to brewery, which I guess suits the shop and clientele rather well, let’s face it they are going to get lots of folk who say stuff like ’well he likes his beer but only usually drinks Guinness or stouts’, cue the owner taking them to the stout section to discuss the merits of each on offer. There is a good choice here and even the beer geek is likely to find something of interest. I picked up a De Dolle Stille Nacht, I’ve got plenty but one more isn’t going to hurt. Prices are on the higher side but you are in central Brussels so comparable to others. It is fine, but for people like us who are able to drive to other places with more extensive offerings and better prices they are unlikely to see me very often.
