Big thanks to RobBeer for letting me know about this gem. A Dutch guy named Bert runs this little shop in the Markthalle. You can pick up some delicious belgian chocolates along with your beer. Bert runs back to Belgium to pick up some new stuff every now and again (last time I was there he had Brand Utyp, supposedly a pilsener brewed in the original style, very tasty) but you can always find the standard trappists, a variety of Hoegaardens, and your Rodenbachs and Liefmann's. If you've spent an extended amount of time in Dresden, I don't need to tell you how important a store like this is.

On my last trip, I picked up the Brand Urtyp, a Jenlain, a McChouffe Blond, and some Rodenbach Grand Cru. Bert has even been so kind as to sell me some beautiful beer glasses so I could enjoy his products. And if you have a group of 5 or 6 or who knows how many people, he'll happily do a beer tasting for you.

If you're looking to enjoy something beyond the pilseners and lagers that stock the shelves of the grocery stores and bars in this part of the world, than go here. In Dresden, I haven't found any place like it.

This place is definitely a great find. As of late 2007, there is no longer a storefront, so it was a little difficult to find for the first time. It is owned by a guy named Bert Willems, who really loves his Belgian beer and wants to do what ever he can to help others enjoy Belgian beer too.

So if you find yourself in Dresden and are looking for an escape from pilsners and hefes, you should track this guy down. He speaks great English so that is not an issue for foreigners. The best way to get ahold of him is by phone: +49-(0)351-8025988. He will deliver beer and pick up empties when you are done. I also got some good recommendations for new beers to try when I was talking to him. He will also take requests to look for beers that he does not have in stock if you are willing to wait a little while for his next trip to Belgium.

Another great thing about this is place is the price. You can get great beers from Belgium, including most Trappists, at a very reasonable price (much cheaper than in the US).
