Great speciality beer cafe, no loud music, just the atmosphere of an old shop. Staff is competent, can give you a lot of information about the beers, they are lovely and attentive. Lots of books and pamphlets lying around to give you even more information on the beers, other beerbars in the Netherlands and upcoming beer events. Even before the... More

Great place if you just want to taste a couple of real special beers from all over the world. Don't go here if you want a evening out with music, but come here to enjoy a special beer! And also don't forget to order a plate of cheese, for only 5 euro you get a small place full with cheese... More

We popped in to this little place as we were looking for local beers. When you are travelling to 9 different countries and trying to consume 200 different beers you need bars that a unique and serve true local beers. This is certainly one of them! Nick (the bar tender) was excellent and very knowledgable. He recommended some great beers... More

We stumbled upon this place trying to get out of a downpour and we were delighted we did. If you are looking for dancing and cocktails or some other "nightlife" experience, this isn't the place for you. If, however, you delight in sampling fine beer, then this is your place. The emphasis is, as you might expect, on Dutch and... More

I quite liked this place. Old and charming, filled by a nice and varied crowd . They have so many beers that you would not be able to taste them all even if you come here for a week every evening. If you like old pubs and love beer, I would definitely pass by for a drink (or two). Having... More

I stayed at the Inntel Hotel like 50 feet away from this place and was happy to see such a highly rated place near my hotel. After passing by multiple times a day and stopping in for a drink once, I must say with certainty that the reviews of this bar on tripadvisor are not accurate. It is an old... More

Amazing place, delighted we (quite literally) stumbled across it. A must for beer lovers, huge selection, very welcoming staff and great fun, if I remember correctly (quite a big 'if'), prices were pretty good too. A must visit for all travellers.

The staff are a great help in choosing from their extensive menu's and the laid back vibe is great to relax from all... More

I have traveled extensively and usually on my own and as a result have taught myself to appreciate beer because I had many bad wine experiences when the selection was limited where I might happen to find myself, and the ability to procure a decent single serving was even higher risk (if the glass you select from a normally great...

This came highly recommended by folks we met that were from Amsterdam, one of whom was a brewer. The choices are vast and can be overwhelming, but the staff are friendly and accommodating. If you tell them what styles you like they will suggest something similar. I unknowingly ordered a 20 euro bottle of lambic and the waiter very kindly... More
