Stumbled into this place to find directions. There were two guys working behind the counter, and they both were very friendly, engaging us from the time we entered the store without ever becoming smothering. They were definitely knowledgeable and there to help.
Their beer was almost exclusively high-quality Belgian artisanal beer, and their selection was fantastic. It was all organized by similar style, which made shopping a joy. They also prominently featured some very rare items such as Rodenbach Vintage 2007, that I did not see in any other bottle shops in Belgium.
They also seem to have this deal where you spend 100 Euros in the store and they'll give you a free bottle of Westvleteren 12. I think this is a fabulous idea that still seems to respect the wishes of Sint Sixtus (they are not reselling the Westvleteren).
The prices were a little steep compared to other bottle shops in Belgium, but against other shops in Brussels, they were on-par with price. Definitely worth going here to seek out some of those rare gems.

Stoped there on my trip in Brussels
small shop filled with bottles from the ground to the top.
The guy was making some renovation, but take time to give us some advices about the products he sells.
He sells the basics belgium., the classics and some more less known beer.
selection is alright
and the value is alright I guess.
cool little place,
Im not to difficult about reviewing beer shop in Brussels, cause they have a lot of nice beers and breweries so, every place I went was pretty good for me. I had the chance to go there, by myself and see, taste, drink the belgium beer
so if you got the chance to go, you wont regret it, theres a lots to drink

I went here today for the first time. It is just outside the main tourist area, which one can notice immediately because the shop is much less crowded than the bier tempel. The shop is a bit narrow, with large cupboards full of beers on both sides of the shop. The selection covers almost all Belgium beers available, more than in the bier tempel. They have definitively some rare beauties here (limited brews), very local brews and also some very new struise brews. I also noticed there are a few vintage bottles, but not a whole selection like in beermania. Service is friendly, although at first sight the person didn't look very interested in helping out. But after some questions he became more and more helpful. No wesrvleteren here, although they have an action if one spends 100 euro (150 dollars), you get a bottle for free....well, for the westvleteren, one can just go to bier tempel! I noticed this shop is quite a bit cheaper than the bier tempel. Highly recommendable!

As long as you're heading to Delirium Cafe, you might as well pop in to the Beer Planet which is very close by on a parallel street. My friend and I showed up 10 minutes before their posted closing time, but they didn't seem to mind. The manager Aram is a very helpful and friendly guy who speaks English.
He kept his store open half an hour later making recommendations and talking about all things beer. Beer Planet didn't have any vintage beers but there is a nice selection of more obscure regional brewers. The feel is more of a neighborhood store than a beer superstore. The selection is smaller than other more noteworthy shops in Brussels, but there is a charm to this place.
They do have Westvleteren but since that brand is not supposed to be sold they offer a free bottle only if you spend one hundred euros in the store. I guess Aram felt that we were worthy beer fans since he was willing to part with a couple of bottles even though we spent substantially less than that. He did tell us not to advertise this so if you go to Beer Planet don't expect this deal! The only problem was that we were schlepping around bags of bottled beer all night throughout the old section of Brussels.

I just stumbled upon this place one day while showing some friends around the center of town.
It's pretty impressive upon entrance. There are supposedly 600 beers stocked, though I didn't bother to count. The beers range in quality from some pretty hard to find stuff down to Corona. Nothing vintage, sadly.
I found a few interesting brews, but the guy at the counter wasn't much help. I asked if they stocked anything from De la Senne. He hadn't heard of it. De Dolle? Same thing. He did TRY to be helpful and looked around with me; I eventually found that they did indeed stock beers from both places. He was nice guy, just not very acquainted with the stock I guess.
Prices are reasonable. Most beers are 2EUR, with a few of the higher-end ones at 2.50. They do have a couple of cases of Westvleteren, but the only way you can get it is buy buying 100EUR worth of beer.
Pretty nice selection of glassware also. Probably ~100 different glasses from various breweries.
Overall a nice place. I'll go back if I happen to be down that way, but I think I'll stick to Beer Mania and Bier Tempel for most of my purchases.
