De Bier Tempel is located near Grand Place, not very well hidden amongst the chocolate stores and the tourist shops

This was a really nice place. I didn't buy any beer here because I purchased about 18 different bottles at Beermania about an hour before. I just came here to see if they had any very rare gems that Beermania didn't have. They didn't.

The selection though, was still very well received. They had about 150 to 200 beers in various sizes and also a pretty extensive selection of glassware. T-shirts and books, most notably Tim Webb's Good Beer Guide and Lambicland were sold here as well.

The service was great. I asked the lady at the counter if I could pay her for some shipping supplies. She laughed and just asked what I needed, handed them to me and told me not to worry about it. Her generosity was very well appreciated and I bought a Cantillon tulip to thank her.

It is interesting to note that Westvleteren was available here and one euro cheaper than Beermania. Also, if you are looking for Cantillon, come here, because Beermania does not stock Cantillon on principle. Apparently, Cantillon is non-traditional to them. But yet, Timmerman's, St. Louis and Mort Subite, which they sell, are traditional lambics. WTF? Anyway, come here, but after Beer Mania.

Incredible selection. Westy 12 at a reasonable 12 euro.

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.
