Amazing little beer shop, totally different inside. Staff are so friendly and knowledgable. Beer selection is amazing and at times cheaper than the other shops! If you like your beer you’ll love this shop! They even have Trappest Westvleteren 10.2% at €10

The shop is good and friendly owners, this is a shop, they don,t do food. Think some reviewers are getting confused with Cambrinus bar near the Markt. Both good establishments.

We came to Bacchus Cornelius to try some Jenever. The lady who helped us was lovely & was happy to let us try a few types of Jenever so that we could choose which one to buy. A great wee store.
