The list with beers on draught is impressive: 17 from mainly The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the UK but in some months also from... More

No TV playing sports or news. No music on a loop. No dancing. No DJ. No live acts. Just beer and some nice snacks to go with it. And when we say "Beer" we mean "BEER." 200+ types in bottles. All the time. 18 or more on tap. All the time. Oodles of special beers that aren't featured on the... More

If you are looking for some Heineken and loud music then 'In De... More

You should stay away of the Wildeman if you like Heineken, if like to shout an yell on your holiday, if you don't want to have a cosy conversation with interesting Dutch or Belgian beer adapts, if you don't like eel on a saturday evening. If not, you are my friend and there is a possibility you will meet me... More
