Cafe Derat is a very cosy bar situated near the center of Utrecht. The barman, Eric, is a specialist and makes you feel right at home. The locals treat you just as anyone else and this is the finishing touch to create an atmosphere you don’t feel like leaving. If you want a quiet stay or an endless discussing about beer, either way cafe Derat will fill your needs. Eric selects the beers himself and it is always a pleasure to find out what beers are on tap. (they change often). I’m quite sure it won’t be long before my next visit, and the one after that. See you soon!

One of the best beerpub sin the Netherlands. Great atmosphere, friendly service, interesting selection (lambic/geuze, nice taps) - this is a gem.

Super little back street bar with a small but eclectic beer selection. Friendly and not typically Dutch. For spotters of the unexpected, also has some of the local Uwe cider available in small batches. Revisited June 27th 2013. Was expecting to rate De Drie Herzen over this, until I walked in and found 3 new breweries on tap..

An excellent local Utrecht bar that me and my father stumbled into completely by accident on a cycle-tour around the Netherlands.
Both being serious real-ale and cider enthusiasts, we couldn’t believe our luck that we’d found this amazing bar run by an evangelist for top-quality British craft beer, Erik!
We had a great night drinking more beers than I care to remember with our friendly host, but the real revelation was the fantastic Dutch beers that we trusted Erik to provide us with, choices that he supplemented from his vast range of bottles and drafts.
Top quality beer, chatter and atmosphere, the only thing I could possibly ask for was perhaps a few more bar snacks, but I understand Erik didn’t open the place to start up as a Chef, so that’s forgiveable.
Check it out! Missing it already.

Great bar! Went there on a Saturday night, together with Dutch friends. Wide variety of nice Dutch beers. Availibility depends on what they got from the brewers; i.e. the card is not always updated, but hey, it’s a wonderful place! And WAUW... the beer menu for lambics and old gueuzes is a true example for about 99.9% of Belgian beer bars! And the way they market it is just fantastic (sorry for the non Dutch speaking people): "Geuzejeuk? Vraag onze kaart!" (If it itches for gueuze, just ask for our special card’). Grandiose!

A great place. Quiet but not deserted midafternoon Christmas week. Two cats, no waiting. Framed dessicated rat on the wall. Not a lot of taps but a very nice selection (lots of bottles, but we didn’t try any.) Good recommendations from the barkeeper, useful since they had Dutch micros this Californian had never heard of. If I lived in Utrecht I’d spend a lot of time here.
I should mention: the barkeep asked "how did you find us?" and when I mentioned ratebeer.com he said "oh yeah, that got me through Canada last year."

My favourite beerbar in Utrecht! (In Dutch: stamcafe) It’s always fun to be here. Great selection of Belgium and Dutch (!) beers. 6 taps, chance very often, so be quick when you want to drink your favourite beer. When you prefer something sweet, just ask the secret Geuze/Lambic list behind the bar.
The bar is named after a dead rat that was found in the cellar. The rat now has a special place on the wall.

Small place with cosy ambiance. Owner Erik is very dedicated. On request he organizes beer and whisk(e)y tasting sessions upstairs. Much variation in unusual draught beers from small breweries. Special evenings with live music, poetry or ‘disc-jockeys ‘ playing all kind of music, inter alia French chansons and Rock and Roll from the 50’s and 60’s. If you’re lucky you can hear on a Tuesday evening a choir singing tear-jerkers. Note the large ringing bell from the Whitechapel Bell Foundry (1871) hanging from the wooden ceiling above the wooden floor. A unique bar – also for Dutch standards.

Visited August 15th. Fun little neighborhood bar that fills up with a great local atmosphere. Plenty of Belgian beers, again, would have enjoyed a bit more Dutch beers. The owner Erik sat at our table brought us samples from a small Oud Beersel Cask and later accompanied us to a restaurant. A few British beers were available in ltd qty from Erik trip in Kent. A nice whiskey collection is also available with some nice little gems hidden upstairs.
Fun place nestled just out o the busy touristy Oudgracht steert.

Beautiful old pub, mostly locals. A decent selection of draught beer and an impressive lambic selection for the Netherlands (especially a small town such as Utrecht) for cheap prices. Very good spirit selection, The owner is very knowledgeable, passionate and friendly. We had a very nice Jenever tasting (1/3 pours). I definitely recommend this place.
