We visited Cafť De Pintelier on Friday 2nd October 2015, and yet again it was a most wonderful day, quite how long we can ride this amazing good fortune with the weather remains to be seen, but every year we come away about the same week for Borefts and after and every year weíve been lucky, this year being particularly sunny. The bar describes itself as a Belgian Beer Cafť so it is no surprise to see the list swamped with a large array of Belgian beers, but itís a big list and whilst there are few surprises the extensive choice should keep most people happy. Cafť De Pintelier is quite centrally located not that far from the Vlismarkt, it is down to tiny narrow street called Kleine Kromme Elleboog you can see De Pintelier at the end and then a branch off to the right leads to a sort of cul-de-sac or more accurately a square at which this and another establishment utilise the space with outside tables. De Pintelier looks quite
an historic building from the outside with two sides accessible I guess it sort of sits on a corner. Inside it is a little dark, itís a long oblong room with a huge long bar that really takes up much of the space save for a seating area at the far end which has a number of tables. Going back to the bar I think that I counted 24-25 stools up to it which gives you some appreciation of its size. I liked this bar, the barman/waiter was really efficient and quite funny amusing himself (and Loz) by repeating back my pronunciation of beers. We spent a pleasant 30-40 mins here with an Orval (Loz) and a Jambe De Bois me.

A good selection of common belgian beers and a few others. Fair prices, good service, was pretty crowded on a saturday night. Could do with some Dutch or other non-Belgian beers.

Very nice, old fashioned bar with wooden panels, brass and brown interior. In a narrow alley in inner city Groningen. Fine selection on tap, mainly Belgian with a few Dutch exceptions. Nice service on this quiet Wednesday night, bartender had time to chat and offered me samples. Well worth a visit.

Decent bar popular with the student crowd and fairly busy. Not a place to have a quiet beer, but nice for a lively atmosphere and a decent beer. The selection is mostly Belgian standards, with some Dutch beers thrown into the mix. Good service even considering the crowds.

Well known beer bar in Groningen, but not the best. After all the recent developments in the Dutch beer culture itís strange this bar list so little Dutch beers. The other beer bars in Groningen (Koffer en Toeter) do a better job. However, the atmosphere is nice.

Nice place to hang out during the week.
Has a good selection on beers (draught and bottles) on reasonable prices.
I realy enjoy my time there. Only bad thing is that it gets very busy during the weekend.
