Hi Folks

I am new to the forum and like you all do not drink anything but Belgian quality beers ( Ok I might have a pint of spaten now and again )

My first request is , does anyone know a good UK stockist of Belgian beers and are there any EU outlets worth my trying
regards

Viv

Hi Alan,

Welcome to this board, and we do taste the odd brew that's not Belgian,
especially if the quality is high!

UK: Beers of Europe, Beermerchants.

Belgium: FinestBelgianBeers, Belgium in a Box, BelgianBrewed, BelgianCraftBeers.

There were a few others like Bitter Virtue and BelgianHappiness that
have either closed or are no longer shipping to the UK ( Brexit! ).

If you google you will find a lot more based in Belgium, and a few
in the UK, but not with very wide ranging choices usually just the
well-known brands.

Prices have rocketed since Covid and Brexit but if you shop around
you can still find well-priced brews, eg Rochefort 10 for £3.00/bottle
instead of <£6.00/bottle!

I wish you good hunting! And look forward to any comments or results
from your hunting!

Cheers!


Viv

Welcome aBBBoard Alan,
I think Viv has said it all.
But maybe I can suggest to pay www.beeronweb.com a visit too.
They (Filip & Patrick) are good friends of me and live very close to Bruges. Their beer shop (http://drankencentralerotsaert.be/) is actually located at Zedelgem, a gem near to Bruges.
They do ship to the UK too.  t_u
Cheers,
Filip
