My 999th place rating. Fantastic atmosphere here - friendly and welcoming, like drinking with your old school buddies. Amazing architecture, and the waals are covered with blackboards that show the large tap list and the extensive bottle list, including all (yes, all) the Trappists. Food is very tasty, especially the ribs, and the portions are huge. Beyond all that, prices are low for the area. What’s not to like? Thanks, kraddel, for taking me here!

Great space, but a bit too commercial for my taste. Lots of expected beers and plenty of tourists. Loud, and not particularly worth the effort. Perhaps I caught them at the wrong time, but not a fan. Sorry.

Solid little beer bar located in central Antwerp. The interior is fairly modern and dark. The selection is good, but not great. They have a fairly comprehensive tap and bottle selection with no particular stand-outs or beers I had not seen elsewhere. Saying that there was still plenty of good stuff for me to drink and re-visit. Service was friendly and very attentive by Belgian standards. Food was also rather good if a little pricey. Much better opening hours than Kulminator so if you’re in Antwerp I’m sure you’ll find yourself here. A decent stop.

Counted 300 beers in theory, although they are pushing for 400 and may get there. "In theory" means that helter-skelter list on the walls plus the taps, of which there were 30 with not many surprises. One was the Gollem Blond, made for them by the Musketeers at Proef. Didn’t eat but the food menu is ambitious -- maybe too ambitious for a simple beer café that wasn’t especially crowded -- and looked good. Definitely worth a visit but the Bierhuiske around the corner seems to have a clearer vision and stronger (not longer) list for now. Lot of potential, though. Great location on Suikkerrei, between the water and the Cathederal. Friendly owners.

This place doesn’t need the spam reviews. It can stand on its own. Gollem’s a restaurant/bar located in a touristy part of Antwerp. Clean, sleek ambiance. There’s about 25 taps plus 150 or so bottles. There’s plenty of your standard Belgian offerings, but the list is curated to include some nice stuff too. I can’t complain when St Bernardus Abt 12 is on tap for a good price. The food is definitely worth trying. My portion of ribs could have served a family of 4. Prices were quite good considering the location. The service was better than average for Belgium. Overall, this would be a good spot to grab lunch if you’re on a crawl through Antwerp. Recommended.

Pretty good selection at reasonable prices. Interior is lacking in atmosphere - the kind of generic beer pub seen the world over - and nothing like the Amsterdam original.The music is too loud. Worth a look but not a patch on the Antwearps Bierhuiske around the corner.I assume AMAI, TIGRA & MICHMARR(see below) work for this place as their ratings are rediculous and slagging off the competition AMAI is very bad practice.

Ok place, pretty cosy interior. Weird to be served by Dutch (and I mean Holland Dutch, not Belgian Dutch) waiters in Antwerp city. Very elaborate beer menu, prices are ok for this location (right next to the city hall). Did not eat, but might give it a try on one of my next Antwerp visits. At least I got a place to go now, until the Kulminator opens up in the afternoon. ;-)

Antwerps newest beer bar. Nice atmosphere, good food. The beer is a bit expensive.A bit of a missed opportunity. The tap and especially the bottle list is made up out of bulk mainly. Too little monuments, too little innovation, too much mediocre beers (Tongerlo, etc). Next to none Oude Geuzes, for example. The owners are Dutch, but should play the Dutch/foreign card a lot more. Why aren’t all the La Trappe-beers on the list, for example. Rare De Molen brews (there are a couple of them, but there could be more) could attract a crowd that is currently unserved inAntwerp: quality non-Belgian beer drinkers. Other foreign beers? Maisel from Germany. The owners should go and have a peep in Brussels at Moeder Lambic. If Gollem can pimp it’s list, they might have a chance, otherwise I’m afraid that the cheaper Antwaerps Bierhuiske (less beers, but the list is way more intelligent and diversified) will compete them out of the market

This is a nice and welcome addition to the centre of Antwerp. The staff had a genuine interest in the beers they were selling. Service was good, if anything they seemed overstaffed on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Westvleteren 12 was available for €12 per bottle. However the ’value proposition’ was surely St Bernardus Abt on tap at only €3.30 per glass. Prices in general are very good which makes it a place to stay in for a while rather than just 1 or 2 drinks. The only negative was the open sewer smell coming from the toilet area. It’s not the only place in Antwerp to suffer from that though.

Interesting new beerpub with two for Antwerp unusual features: 30 different taps and a serious number of international beers. That feels like Holland, and indeed, the owners are Dutch. Friendly service, nice bottled list - the tap selection is okay, but not as adventurous as one might expect. But maybe that’s going to change over time, it’s a new pub after all. Don’t miss it!
