I tried their web shop several times.!st time . I received my beers 1 month after paying them money. They had some problem with one of items, but I wasn’t informed until I wrote them mail. Answer was, that they have some problems but within1-2 days they will send beers to me. After additional 2 weeks and another mail I finally received them. And on top of that I received Westy 8 with Hoofdraak sign on bottle. After my question, I received answer, that they don’t have Hofdraak beer, therefore they sent me Westy 8. Which was nice, but little bit unprofessional not to write it down with clear explanation.
Selection is nice, but communication with them is quite complicated.
Nice little narrow shop that is very clean, very organized and on the pricy to very pricy side. (I find it amazing most of the other bottle shops put the bottles they are trying to sell right into the store front window, if you enjoy ‘light struck’ beer then these places are for you. If not then Beer Planet will do nicely). They of course have a wide array of Belgian offerings as well as Mikkeller, Hornbeer, Brewdog, Nogne and a couple of Stone brews too. I walked out with a Faro, a couple of Quads, Struise IPA and a few others. If in the area it is a good place where you may find something typically hard to get.
Well displayed store in the very center of Brussels, a short hop from Bier Tempel. The selection is excellent, maybe even larger than Bier Tempel and certainly than Delices et Caprices. I don’t know if the man behind the counter was the owner, but he offered just about the poorest service we’ve met in Brussels, not even getting up and constantly seeming displeased at our presence. For this reason, I kinda disliked the experience, but that may change from one day to another and the selection is great, even though the prices are in the high range as well.
Small store in the touristy part just outside of the grand place. No coolers, beers sorted mostly by style, staffed usually by one person behind counter that leaves you to roam the store on your own. Will try to answer question, if they can, but not super knowledgeable...if that is what you need. That being said, the selection included such things that weren’t seen elsewhere around town (fantome and Armand 4 to name a couple) and we ended up buying several bottles here to drink in our room over the 3 nights we were here. Prices were also quite a bit higher than other beer stops while in Belgium, but about average to slightly high for Brussels. Would recommend for sure if in the area, but wouldn’t say it is a place to go out of your way for.
Nice store, right along a main eating district in brussels. Store has a nice size, lots of bottles line the walls. Not super large but it had a lot of beers and the selection was good, we got lente here, which is certianly a gem, Overall good store
Bon choix, mais tarifs beaucoup trop élevés... La personne qui m’a recue a voulu me vendre une Divine Rebel 2010 à 15euros la bouteille de 33cl, sans être capable de me dire de quoi il s’agit. Pour moi, plutôt à éviter.
Tiny shop packed with beers; no ultra-rarities, but at least some half-rarity; some Strise and Alvinne; some beers from very small breweries, not common to find; also some American and Danish and Scottish, although in this case the price is too high; also the other beers are not very cheap, for Belgium, but still acceptable. They have a beer fountain at the entrance, and that one smells like hell!
A bit expensive, but nice selection. Some danish and american beers, but mostly berlgian bottles in the store. The only shop that offered 3 Fonteinen Armand Lente during my visit. I will go here next time I visit Brussels.
A very good store, massive selection, but damn, it’s expensive. There are several other places you should go to before Beer Planet - eg Bier Tempel. We got some over-enthusiastic kinda in-your-face service, so that also detracts a bit. But wonderful selection.
