Fin  (729) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | March 20, 2015
We (me, dad and Barry) visited Locus Publicus at the end of the evening on Saturday 14th March 2015. It was very easy to find being located smack opposite the Oostplein tram stop which we had arrived at. It appears to be a one room square shaped pub, with large floor to ceiling windows at the front (I think). The beer list (mostly permanent) was helpfully put on large chalkboards behind the bar, it was a huge list with all of the usual Belgian suspects, however the tap list on the LH side as you enter did change and indeed was changing whilst we were there. It was very popular, no seats available when we arrived so we sat outside, ok it wasnít very warm but we had our coats on and it was dry. I noticed a pub next door called International Locus Publicus (or something similar), in contrast it was extremely quiet, but I wondered if this as the name suggests is a new branch serving International beers. I tried to see if I could see a beer list for the new place but couldnít, there may have been a list behind the bar that could sort of make out, if so it didnít look so big, one member of staff was moving between the two establishments.

12 taps and lots of bottles. High prices. No real rarities. OK service. OK location (quite easy to get there). Lots of students on Friday night. I believe this is the best pub in Rotterdam but Rotterdam isnít exactly the beer capital of the Netherlands.

Distinctly old school, pretty dark and dingy. Decent enough selection and service.

the best place for good beer in Rotterdam. An open hearth and good atmosphere. 12 beers on tap with always some nice interesting ones.

Quite large room, but hardly any seats. Visited this place two years ago with jerohen, but the place was dead then too. Good selection, some rare beers from tap. Not the only reason to visit Rotterdam, the other is the Pelgrim Brewery.

Visited during the Dutch Beer Challenge with Tim Skelton of Beer in the Netherlands fame. I had not been here since 2002 - not sure the beer menu had changed much. And there is the point. Fabulous atmospheric bar, full of old-style Belgian ales and not much that is of the moment.

Cosey place, just in the outer ring of the city center. Atmosphere is pleasant, friendly personnel, but they do not seem to know much about beer. If you are familiar with all the well known belgians, you wonít find anything new here. Nevertheless fine and enjoyable abbey beers.

kermis  (196) The Hague, Netherlands | March 28, 2013
Small but pleasant bar near Rotterdam Blaak station. Basically one square room, old fashioned with lots of wood and a real fireplace - a welcome change in Rotterdam. Selection is not that exciting with a lot of Belgianís in bottle, and a few Dutch beers, usually with at least something new to try on tap between my infrequent visits. Good and friendly service. Certainly the best beer bar in a city thatís not blessed with craft beer bars.

A solid, but not great beer selection. Short bar with four stools plus six tables. Itís mostly a local bar and the customers seem quite friendly,as are the staff.

Went here a handful of times during two different visits to Rotterdam. Young crowd not a lot of space gets pretty cramped late on. Fairly substantial selection. Quite a few beers on tap and a ton of bottles from around the world. Bar tenders were knowledgeable and helpful.
