Despite Take One’s attitude, Servaas’s potential and Thembi’s range, this is Maastricht’s current top beer venue - and in the increasingly competitive Dutch top ten drinking places, without doubt. Delighted to see a boss who is probably older than me. Also clearly relishing his job. It was also heartening to be in the lowest quartile of the age range drinking there. I am guessing that the boss always wanted to run a pub that specialised in beer and enjoys shocking his customers with yet another brewery making top rate beers. Craft intentions one, industrial wisdom nil, 50 times a night. Just off the Maas. The only place I visited that on a busy trip informed by Tim Skelton’s Beer in the Netherlands that was not polluted by groovy music. Snacks could get a wee bit more artisanal. Otherwise brilliant.

Awesome place!!! Living room kind of feeling, full of breweriana, cozy and laid back atmosphere. The couple is so friendly, they are very knowledgeable about the beers they have and are glad to recommend you anything based on what you feel like. Not a very big selection but I prefer the quality over quantity they serve. Highly recommended if you’re in Maastricht!

Went here two times during my visit to Maastricht. Located next to the river and easy to find. Small, cosy bar with the likes of an old fashioned living room. Shelves with beer books and the wall is decorated with empty beer bottles and other beer memorabilia. The beer list itself is pretty standard with a few suprises, but once you talk to the owners, who are mighty friendly btw, there are other beers appearing as well. Very knowlegdeable and they know what you’ll like by determing your taste preferences. We had a great time here and during our next visit we’ll most likely return here!

Cosy bar, love the looks. A good selection. Nothing really special, but some chose for everyone. Good service. One to get back to one day.

A really warm and cozy bar on the banks of the river Maas. The owners are a older couple that were serving the food and beers on both the occasions I visited. The beer was pared with some cheese without asking, which was really nice. The selection is good, and the owner can give you recommendations upon request. Massive selection of Struise beers, and he sad that he sometimes carried Cantillon, Fantome and other rarities. The only problem with the bar is that it has no comprehensive list of what is on offer, and the bottles are stored in the cellar, so the only way to select beers is to ask the staff. Other than that, it is really, really good. I tried some amazing Struise stuff there. By far the best bar in Maastricht.

On the window it said 550 beers. But the beerlist on the table only mentioned about 60. After inquiry at the bar I was informed that the owner just didn’t have the time to update the beerlist all the time. So just go to the bar and ask what they have or even better what style you’re looking for. He mentioned to surprise me twice with a beer I never heard of! One of them being excellent by the way. The atmosphere is something else. Entering the bar you’ll have to suppress your feeling to leave again. White bright light, a completely empty bar looking like just a huge lump of wood, plastic gnomes and mushrooms in the window. The place was pretty full bud sadly enough only beer-tourists and expats.

Great bar with an amazing selection of all kinds of unknown beers. Owner really has a passion for his product. You can tell him what kinds of beer you like, after which he descends into his cellar for a while, to return with a great microbrew you’ve never heard of before. Prices are really good as well.

Stopped in for a beer midafternoon. Kind of small, charming old place with lots of character. Great service from the bartender. Nice mix of Belgium, American and German beers with a few others thrown it. Prices were great on draft beers and they had some decent bottle prices on most offerings. Very cool place, I’d go back in a heartbeat.
