Visited Bierhandel Willems on 4/7/2013 with Thirstybird. Bierhandel Willem is a bottleshop in the true sense of the word. They don't only sell beer, but other bottled beverages (e.g. soda, water, liquors, etc.) and you can also exchange your crate of empties when you come in to pick up your next haul.

The place itself is not much to look at - minimal parking, cement floor, somewhat dimly lit; but appearances aren't everything. There are several aisles dedicated to beer, with a nice selection of Cantillon, Drie Fonteinen, De Cam, Fantome, De Struise, Tilquin, Hansenns, Horals Oude Gueuze, Straffe beers - pretty much if it is made in Belgium, you can get it at Bierhandel Willems. That said, don't expect to find some of the more esoteric belgians (Westy, harder to find De Struise beers, Fou Founne, etc); however, they did have 3 of the Armand '4 Oude Gueuze beers. Overall, one of the better beer shops in Belgium with very fair prices (Dranken Geers near Gent being the other). Prices were extremely reasonable in my opinion - I purchased a Horal's Oude Gueuze Mega Blend, both barrel-aged Tsjeeses, Fantome Magic Ghost and a De Cam Oude Gueuze for around 30 Euro.

Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the Antwerp/Brussels area.
