Brussels March 9-10

Discussion in 'Benelux' started by callmemickey, Feb 20, 2013.

  1. I'll be in Brussels March 9-10. I am no rookie, so I don't need any recommendations, but its been a year so I am in need of some updates :)

    Anyone know current prices of Helena and blauw at De Heeren for takeaway? Not sure what these have increased to recently and might be the determinative factor on whether I make the trek.

    Armand have any Oude Geuze Vintage at the shop currently? Will be out there for lunch at the restaurant, not sure how much I should plan on hauling back.

    Lastly, anyone up for a trade? Interested in American beers? I'd be glad to set something up in Brussels.

    Cheers

  2. Hello Ryan,always up for a trade !
     
  3. Coincidently I will also be in brussels those days. If anyone wants be to bring any Michigan beers to trade let me know.
     
  4. At Heeren a couple weeks ago, didn't notice prices but seemed like a considerable choice of 3F vintages.
     
  5. I'll likely be at moeder lambic fountains both nights.

    Are those beers available to go?
     
  8. It seems they do sell to go. I just noticed they've revamped their website in the last few weeks (not kidding, I def'ly checked even more recently than last visit) and they list the Helena for 50 euros/75 cl bottle, and other stuff.
     
  9. Correction: the prices are higher for takeaway. (Gulp.) And, it only lists their own products. Well, check out the site. I do recall seeing gift baskets and whatnot wrapped for sale in the restaurant, so if/when you get there, you might find out more. Let us know, please. (It can be tricky hereabouts, for what it's worth. I know of one bar that was legally obliged to set up a separate business to sell bottles to go. Others do, seemingly without a problem. It could be anything from local ordinances and zoning, to liquor licenses, to distribution agreements, who knows.)
