Burg Bieren is a treasure trove with one of the best selections of beers Iíve seen. They have beers from all over the world but it was the extensive selection of bottles from small Dutch breweries that really drew us. Thereís parking right outside so transport isnít an issue if youíre travelling by car; the only problem we had was prioritising what to buy as they donít take foreign credit or debit cards Ė a visit to the cashpoint before you go to the shop is recommended! The shop is in a bright and airy barn-like building with upturned parasols on the ceiling and an upstairs loft with just about everything a home brewer might need. The small brewery is to one side and has a wooden clad copper and two fermenters on display. I think it can also be accessed from a kitchen area in the shop which looked as if it was in use for weighing out ingredients on an old fashioned set of scales.

We visited here on Tuesday 2nd October 2012. I must say thus place has a mightily impressive selection with beers from the United States and the UK complimenting an already hugely impressive Belgian & Dutch selection. The USA beers featured Lost Abbey and Great Divide along with a larger selection of well priced Anderson Valley and Flying Dog beers. The Emelisse selection was particularly good but then so was Brewdog with Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink The Bismarck on the shelf alongside more familiar beers in the range. Prices were also excellent and the layout of the shop was also well thought out and nicely done. Beware that Credit Cards and also Visa not accepted, shopping in many places in Holland tends to be very frustrating for this reason. I had to leave my beers on the counter and go to an ATM to arrange payment in cash. Please also check dates on beers, I didnít and have now noticed that the Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti is past its date by 2-3 months, not a huge issue with this stout but if an IPA I wouldnít have been happy when paying over 11 Euros, otherwise this is an excellent place and if in a larger place such as Rotterdam or Amsterdam it would be better known and likely the top of the tree.

Excellent store with easy parking in this small town. Big ranges of Netherlands beers plus specials from top Brewers like Mikkeller, Brewdog and the like. Great service and advice. Top notch.

Shop cum warehosue type affair. If you are looking for a huge range of beers from Dutch micros itís hard to think there can be too many better places, if any. Also lots of Belgian beers and other international stuff, although I canít say I looked at them at all. They now advertise over 1200 beers. Parking right outside. Helpful and friendly staff. Prices were reasonable but not the cheapest. If you are a visitor from outside the country, make sure you take plenty of cash as they donít accept credit cards. Otherwise absolutely top notch. Youíll also get vouchers for free beers (including those from their own brewery) at the bar next door but Iíve never managed to use them as the bar has not been open when Iíve visited the shop.

Strange I didnt rate this place yet? Itís most likely renamed, merged, deleted or whatever. Anyway, decent place. Large warehouse with good showing of the bottles. Big selection of belgians and lots of local Dutch brews. The occasional obligatory US or scandinavian beer. No rares or whales. But selection of Dutch brews is outstanding. Decent service. Prices are very reasonable. Good shop.

Finally made it to this shop and was surpirsed by the amount of beers on stock, over 750, including their own brand. Good knowledgeable service. Will return for sure.

On the outskirts of the Dutch lands, but in (somewhat) the middle of Ermelo, on quite a busy street, thereís this beer store with the bar next door. Very big selection! I would say all Dutch microís are represented. Also a lot of Belgian beers and some beers from UK, USA, Asia and Scandanavia. Prices are quite cheap to normal.
Maybe a little more expensive to a beer here and there but overall prices are pretty cheap to normal. Service is good, knowledgeabe, helpfull, with a smile and in for a chat. Loads of beers to choose from, perfectly displayed and mostly by types and/or brewers. On the head sodes in the "main" hallway you find new beers and extra cheapoís!
Even if itís an hour drive, itís worth it! Absolutely a great store! Recommended!

Itís been a few years since I visited. I remember that there was a LOT on offer! Mainly Dutch and German beers, also some Belgian ones, but back than nothing exotic or rare. They should now be carrying USA imports as well. Curious about that. Must visit again!
