Been here a few times. from the first time I had the feeling like I was coming home. Always greatly welcomed by one of the guys, amazing selection of beers nowadays, great atmosphere, great smell, great people, great beers. I’m a huge fan.
I shopped at many beer stores in Belgium and this is where I found most of the good ones. The prices are fair and the stock is very well-selected. Best of all, the proprietors are friendly and quite helpful.

Note: Just got a box from web order. Great packing. Fast delivery. First time I’ve ordered from a Euro webstore. won’t be the last time!!! Prior rating:The beer selection is: only what is hard to find elsewhere. Glenn and Davy aren’t compromising. They don’t have everything that’s hard to find, but if they have it, it is otherwise hard to find. So it’s the most must place to shop. Value was just excellent.
I suppose its about time I rated this. Glenn and Davy have what I think is the best beer shop in Belgium. Its the only place in Belgium where you can buy great non-belgian beers... from Nøgne Ø to Three Floyds. Obvioulsy the Belgian beer choice is great. It’s really the only shop I know where you won’t find a single "bad" beer. It may be a small store but they pack in quality! Oh and the Alvinne beers are available too ;)
Absolutely adored this place upon visiting – not long after the relocation. Upon entering I was immediately greeted by Glenn with a beer in hand for me. Smelling the brewery as you drink beer tapped straight from the fermentation tank – still fully alive & almost warm to tough & incredibly raw is amazing as it feels like you are drinking the brewery itself. Tour was nice & Glenn was an amazing host, wound up chatting for 2 hours or so as he opened & shared a couple of bottles on the house for me. Beer shop is small but is downright mind-blowing as far as choice & price goes with lots of incredibly stuff which you won’t be capable of getting anywhere else in Belgium. Some breweries you adore for their beers but this one you just want to support for the people themselves. Only downside it is middle of nowhere & hard to incredibly hard to get there, would be probably overrun if it were any closer.
I visited this place only once this summer, on a very hot day and I can suggest this place to everyone. Nice, familiar ambiance, the beershop and the tasting room are upstairs. The selection is very good, even though not enormous, with no filler. lots of lambics, unusual Belgians and easily the best selection of foreign beers available in Belgium. Prices are good. Glenn and the other people there are very friendly, honest and knowledgeable about their beers. A must stop when near.
This is a fantastic beer store and tasting room run by Glenn and Davy from Alvinne, above the brewery in the attic. I planned to make a visit here after reading some great reviews and arranged to come up on a Friday afternoon. I had a great time tasting through most of the Alvinne beer lineup with Glenn and Davy and even got to sample a few new beers straight from the barrel!
The bottle shop is great as well. I bought about a crate or so of Alvinne and Struise beers and the prices are very very reasonable. Besides Alvinne and Struise beers, they had a very nice selection of various lambic beers and other Belgians from the region and beyond.
I plan to go back for a visit during the pre-ZBF fest and again in the future if I am lucky enough to return.
Always nice to be in a taproom of a brewery, but the alvinneboys hit it just where it matters. Beautiful vieuw over the brewhouse, tanks and barrels while enjoying so many different style beers! A must visit when you are in Belgium!
went here for the Pre-ZBF in 09’. Awesome little place with lots of character. Great array of Alvinne brews on tap and a really good bottle shop for the size. Belgium and the US are well represented and it’s apparent that this breweries friendship with others lands some really nice bottles in the shop. The brewers and staff here will bend over backwards to show you a good time. Top Notch!
