Navigating the web site is better than it was years ago. Order enough for a palette to arrive at my door. A couple ottles broken. Let Bruno know. Nothing came of it. All in all a good experience though a bit expensive and it sucked that a couple very nice bottles arrived broken.
I haven’t dealt with Belgian Shop for a while, but I have placed a few orders with them in the past. My experience with them has been great. I hope it hasn’t changed, because I’d like to get into ordering from them again. This may be one of the only places to order Westy beers from, that I know of (although I haven’t done much searching lately). The prices seem a little expensive, but well worth it, because you’re getting top quality beers.
As others have said, great selection, fairly expensive, slow shipping. I’m surprised to read of broken bottles; my order was packaged with great care.

Have been dealing with the shop for a few months now,really enjoying their beers and talking to them.Great people top range of products and a real pleasure to see a parcel from them turn up on the front door bit slow on orders
This is a convenient website to order Belgians you can’t easily get in other places - Westvleteren, etc. The email communication was usually prompt but not always clear and there were a few beers that I ordered that were out of stock. Still, I’d order here again.
Love the selections but the price is really up there. Service is a bit lacking as the response to inquiry was nil. Great selection though, did I mention that? Shipping to the states will ass rape you. FYI
I placed my order on 04/12/10 (2 bottles of Westy). I recieved my paypal receipt but no other confirmation emails. I had read that shipping would take a while so I was not too worried. On 04/28/10, my package arrived! (Signature was required). I was surprised since I never received a shipping confirmation, but I was so happy to have it. The contents were very securely packaged. Overall, I am very happy with my experience.
Throw an order as a X-mas gift for myself (2009). The seledction was pretty good on the fruit side. Shipping was a bit expensive and long (time wise.) Stock wasn’t correct on the webpage, one was out of stock, but the lady was friedly and helpfull - unluckely I picked a beer that was of (not of date). packagning and lableing was excelent - not a word of beer anywere. The swedish customs dosen’t like privat import :-).

Ordered 12 bottles in autumn 2002. I don’t know where to star from so I’ll start from the beginning.
Ambience: What to write about ambience on web beer shop? Nothing (because of that rate is 1).
Service: I got the package after two weeks, considering the year that was reasonable time.
Selection: Both now and then beer lists are very good.
Food: I don’t like cheese, and you can find lots of Belgian chocolate in Croatia, so why to order it.
Overall: Lots of great Belgian beers but too high shipping fee.
