Was hopin to send home a couple cases of beer and this was one of the places on my list. Well no stores in Belgium ship to the states anymore, so had to pick bottles wisely. Store was empty and the woman behind the counter was very nice and helpful. Only store in town that had cantillon and 3f, also Fantome. Very impressive selection crammed into a small space. They also had glasses to go with almost every beer they sell. I would go here again if in brussels in the future.

Excellent shop for beer and their corresponding glasses, even if they aren't as cheap as the supermarkets. I'd definitely recommend this place, especially if you're short on time and want to buy a selection of bottles to go, including the Westvleteren blonde / 8/ 12 (assuming they haven't run out...though, it's quite pricey: ~15 euro). They must be used to people traveling with their purchases, as they individually wrap each bottle and glass, which was much appreciated.

Enjoyed shopping here. The selection was great. I think almost all beers from Belgium were represented, even ones I'd not heard of before. I didn't ask for help, and the reason was that it was so busy and packed with tourist. The staff simply stayed behind the counter, which was ok for me. The hard part was deciding how much money I could afford to spend. I knew about the other stores around town, but this place was so central and easy to reach, that the few hours I had in the tourist area had to spent well.
They really could do with one of two sales people roaming the aisle and dispensing info, but for someone not into exotic beers and looking for a simple present from the mass produced beers, they leave all that up near the front by the cashiers.

What impressed me most was how careful they were in packing each bottle, testing the plastic bag repeatedly to make sure none of the glass of a bottle was touching or clinking. They packed every bottle separately in it's plastic wrap, and made sure the glassware I bought was equally safely stored before they let me leave their presence. Such an eye for detail made my day.
