Excellent beer!

We went to Gollem's on the recommendation of a wacky scooter guy, who clearly knew his beer. It's a small, relaxed bar/cafe, with some really excellent beers, and a really good selection of them. Highly recommended

Really nice place for a few midweek drinks with friends, or at the beginning of a weekend night. Hundreds of beers to chose from. We didn't eat but the food looked good coming out

We stopped in for a quick beer and sandwiches, and ended up having one of our favorite Amsterdam meals! The largely Belgian beer selection is extremely impressive. But our sandwiches were heavenly! We had a simple cheese sandwich with arugula, tomato and mayo that blew our socks off! The salmon sandwich with cream cheese was equally as delicious.

.. which for 7 Euros for 3 different type of meat and plenty of bread is quite substantial for two people almost a meal in itself. there are other items on the menu but keep it simple I think here. The main event is the range of beer here which is always top notch. So, go early, find a table... More

Went here twice, great food, great beer, very friendly and helpful staff, and we met Hans, the resident feline. The weather was really good, which helps, definitely worth a visit.

A fantastic pub used by locals - very busy - and rightly so. The first place we went to after arriving in Amsterdam. Had a late lunch of ham cheese sandwich and burger with a portion of fries. All excellent but the fries were amazing - really crisp and tasty. Apparently they fry them in 'beef tallow'. Later we tried... More

Very good beers with the family. Kids can order fried eggs or burger, and you can enjoy the most varied offer in Amsterdam

There are several Gollem's around Amsterdam, but this one is truly a "neighborhood" bar. The Beer selection is great with lots of beers on tap and even more available by the bottle.
