Belgium in a Box offers proxy and shipping service for Cantillon webshop beers

Published on May 28, 2018.

Belgium in a Box, Belgium’s premier gourmet on-line beer shop and packing and shipping service, now offers a service where they can act as your proxy, and pick up, pack, and ship beers for anyone lucky enough to have purchased bottles during Brasserie Cantillon’s on-line sales. This includes the recent sales of three packs, which included St. Lamvinus, 50N 4E, and Vigneronne. Brasserie Cantillon has stipulated that anyone who has purchased beers through their on-line sales must pick up the sets within three months of the sale date.

Shipping costs will vary depending on the destination. See the website for details or send a mail to: info@belgiuminabox.com. If you want to have beer shipped home that you bought somewhere other than the BIAB shop, BIAB’s packing fees are as follows: 15 euros per 10 kg (22 pounds) of products, and 45 euros for a 30 kg (66 pound) shipment. Note that shipping a box that is just under 30 kilos will give the lowest shipping cost per bottle. Note that about 29.9 kilos or so would equate to about 18 bottles in the 75 cl size, or about 33 bottles in the 37.5 cl size. See this article for more info about Belgium in a Box

***Important Note***: You CANNOT buy bottles at Brasserie Cantillon and leave them there to be picked up. The new Belgium in a Box service is only available for beers purchased during Cantillon’s on-line sales.

You can, however, bring Cantillon bottles to Brussels Beer Project (BBP) where they can take possession of the bottles, take your name and information, and provide it to Belgium in a Box. Belgium in a Box can then pick up your bottles and take them to their shop in Antwerp for packaging and shipping.

***Important note***: A requirement to utilize this service is that you must purchase at least one tasting flight of four Brussels Beer Project beers, at a cost of eight euros, during your visit.

BBP is open from 2 pm to 10 pm Thursdays through Saturdays (and those are the only days and hours that you can bring bottles to drop off for shipping.) If you like the interesting and innovative beers on offer at BBP you can buy any available bottles and have Belgium in a Box ship them with the beers you brought in. Or, you can just go to BBP and buy bottles on site, and have BIAB ship them.
