Slightly off the beaten track but still only a 5 min walk from the city centre. Doesn't look special from the outside but has an impressive selection of a wide range of beers inside. Very reasonable prices for what's on offer.

Lovely little relaxed and friendly bar with beers and spirits from all over the world. If you like a good selection of craft beers. A few good tunes then this place is for you.

a pub who specializes in beers from Ireland and Europe, with a really good selection of belgian ones. The barman knows his stuff and it is nice to see that they change their draught beers regularly.

Found myself a 2010 madame rose, and a 2010 fleur, here.. in September 2014. They have both drunken very nicely. Great, helpful staff. Great ale selection.

The bar is above the beer shop, and at first glance it doesn't look like much, but we talked with the bartender and he recommended some beers. We had a great time trying out beers from all over Europe! Any beer enthusiast should definitely stop in here
