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 ;)

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.

Came here with great expectations and was not disappointed. Great selection, great prices and very friendly service. Don’t think I need to say more, pretty much all has been said. A definite must-visit when in Belgium.

The sign of the times: a brewery that has created space in order to sell products of their competitors - or, as I ought to say, their colleagues. And what it even more important, from those that are good in their eyes. The choice might not be quantitatively overwhelming, the quality of the goods is beyond doubt. However, what sets them apart from all other shops in Belgium, is that here the best of the FOREIGN competitors can be purchased - a true unicum in this country. So, don’t be surprised to find American, British, Danish or other fine microbrews here. Of course, some of the rarer and better Belgian microbrews will be presented as well, and the display is very inviting. The own products are in evidence, and not only can be bought, but even tasted in the adjacent room. Last but not least, every other Saturday, the room under the roof will invite you to a cunning tasting, brought together with small, but skillfully prepared food by brewer Glenn.

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’ve been here twice now and it goes down as one of the best beer shops I’ve been to in Belgium. Glenn and Davy are extremely helpful and approachable. The beer selection though is what this place is all about. An excellent selection of Alvinne, Struise and De Molen beers along with some other very good Belgian beers. It is also incredibly good value. This now goes down on my must visit places on a trip through Belgium.

This place is so amazing I almost don’t want to tell anyone about it, but word is spreading rapidly so... This is (along with Jeppe’s amazing Ølbutikken) is easily the best beer shop I have been to and must be one of the top in the world. The first time I visited, myself, Sim and the other two ratebeerians with us were as giddy as kids in a sweetshop. The selection is utterly fantastic and gets better each time I visit. Not the biggest selection you will ever see but it’s all quality and no filler. My house is full of very high quality beer from this place and what makes it even better are the prices. Rare and world class brews for such little money it almost seems criminal. Glenn and Davy provide service that is unbeatable. Glenn’s cooking needs to be tasted to be believed. And the tasting room next door just makes it all the better. This place is right up at the top of the pile. If you don’t leave here with a huge smile on your face, you don’t like beer.

I thought it was about time we put this place on the map. Special place it is because it is only open once every two weeks. A special tasting is then organized to improve locals palates. At the same time, and for every event, Glenn makes a special food or gastronomic dish to spoil you. Simultaneously, one cannot pass their huge beer shop with more than 270 craft beers available for sale. They accept groups too for guided tours around their brewery annex to the tasting room and shop. Reservation is required though. Simply fantastic!

Visited for the first time for the pre zythos 2009 beerfest. Located in Heule, better hidden than expected and that might be a good thing. The place is great to talk and taste beer. The selection to buy from is very nicely displayed and is very wide, the best in Belgium for international cultbeers. I think you’ll always find something that fits your style and you don’t need to walk a mile to browse around. Davy & Glenn are friendly, and overall the atmosphere is awesome with lots of habituées. Glenn ocassionaly prepares some great food.

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.
