On June 19th I was in Brussels and paid a visit to Beer Planet. I purchased $276.00 worth of merchandise from this store. The person who assisted us was to send me the DHL tracking # via email, which I have yet to receive. I was told the shipment would take 7-10 business days. All of my emails to Beer Planet have gone unanswered and I suspect I will have to dispute the charges with American Express. I sent a final email asking for the shipping conformation within 24 hours. I am curious if others have had shipping issues with this merchant. The guy working in the store was not the most friendly chap and gave the impression we were more of a bother than customers who were happy to spend money in his store.

To update this matter, I received the merchandise I purchased from Beer Planet today 7/1/14. I received a tracking email on Monday and the post office delivered the package at noon. So to be fair to Beer Planet, I received the products I bought. As to why they did not respond to my initial inquiries I cannot say. The good news is I am happy to have the beer and the glassware I ordered.

When I first stumbled upon this place during business hours, it was actually closed. I decided to go eat and then come back and see if they would open up again. To my surprise, the store had opened up after a short break.

As I entered the store for the first time I was in awe of how many different beers they had on hand. Also, they had the different beers organized into different categories which made it very easy to find a new brew in the direction you are looking.

The owners wife was running the shop at the time and she was extremely friendly and helpful in finding some new beers to purchase. She guided me through all of the selections they offer and made some really good recommendations.

I am not sure exactly how many beers they have on hand but the sign on the door said 1000. The store was very clean and well organized.

I purchased a 12 pack of different beers that I picked out myself and the prices were very reasonable. Most of the beers were priced in the 2,50 to 4 Euro range.

If you are in the Brussels area and looking to find some different beers to purchase, this is the place to go!

If you're looking to get away from other tourists, consider Beer Planet. The interior isn't quite as decorated as de Bier Tempel, however Beer Planet does offer a great selection at fair prices, and you won't have to fight the crowds to get a look at a beer which catches your eye.

The selection is a little more varied by nationality, offers a few more Dutch beers to go with the large selection of Belgians. I saw some Mikkeller here too. Even more surprised when I saw Old Guardian on sale, but at a very high price.

Just a short walk from the Grote Markt and with much less tourist traffic. If judging by beer, I would probably give Beer Planet the nod over Bier Tempel, although here they don't wrap your bottles for your journey back home.
