“dutch beerbar done good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

A fantastic place, fantastic beer and fantastic people! Everything is right about the place. The simplicity is stunning, get a good looking building from the outside, decorate it well, get some of the best beers from around The Netherlands and the rest of the world and employ people who are knowledgeable. Just how could it fail?

“Nice place, but..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

The dutch beers that were served, a few stouts and the one porter they had, was less than impressive. The staff was skilled and knowledgable and the locale itself was nice.

“Beer Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Cool little place to sit a while away a few hours, enjoying great Dutch beers and ales. A selection of ever-changing 30 micro brews on tap, with another 70 by the bottle. I tried an amazing IPA and then had the "Bloed, Zweet & Tranen" (Blood, Sweat & Tears) Smoked Stout. Wow, tasted like carbonated peat smoke in a glass! The place has a great atmosphere and the crowd is mixed locals, expats and tourists. Plates of good local cheeses are available too.

“Brilliant Beer Bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Simply Brilliant! This bar has a wide range of wonderful beers. Can't recommend this place enough. The bar staff were really knowledgeable about all of the beers and are happy to recommend something to your taste. We also had an interesting range of snacks!

“Great beer bar featuring Dutch beers - important stop on world beer tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Compared to most beer bars, this was is definitely a few rungs up the ladder, which may/may not be a plus for some. I like a nice well broken in atmosphere as well, but would highly recommend this bar. It's immaculate. A massive selection of Dutch beers with very knowledgeable and friendly bartenders - some rare stuff that would be difficult to find elsewhere. They also stock a variety of jenevers - young and well aged. If you're on the "beer tour" you need to stop here.
