“Nice beers in a nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The brewery employs a lot of people that would not get a job in a 'regular' cafe/restaurant but who deserve a decent job nonetheless, for example people who have been in a psychiatric hospital for a while. Therefore some dumb people will post a review, complaining about the lousy service they got.
They are truly dumb! This place is a great in many different ways. It has great beers, good food, very friendly people and has a social function, both for the staff and the visittors.

Well worth a visit + ensure you also try their liquors just round the corner.
The fish and chips were also amazing.

“Good beer and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

The Beers are good and fairily priced. We asked for all ten beers on tap and the waitress was very nice and explained all of them to us, one by one.
The food was a very good match.
Try the 'smoked' version of Andre (the name in dutch is something like 'cremated Andre'), it's a very unique smoky beer that goes really well with the cheese and meat board.
