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!

Tiny and slightly eccentric bar just off the central canal. The draught and bottled beer selection was a standard mix of newish Dutch brews and old Belgian favourites, nothing all too exciting. The list of lambic beers is excellent though and very fairly priced.

Quite small cafe with seven taps and about 30 beers on bottles. Good crowd on a Sunday evening. The owner Eric was very nice, but beer wise I’d recommend Kafe Belgie.

Stopped here twice while in Utrecht. The place is basically an old house with a bar in it, not the nicest ambience but has a bit of charm, there are also a few cats running around. Eric, the owner, is super cool and really makes this place. Upon our arrival Eric brought us a couple of samples of the draft selections. Selection was ok, just a few drafts and a nice bottle list. It wasn’t super apparent what was available and you almost had to hunt down lists off of random chalk boards. Value was ok, beer in the Netherlands was pretty expensive overall. This place was filled with locals, but Eric made it inviting. The second time when Eric wasn’t there was not as much fun.

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.

A limited portfolio maybe, but during my (short) visit beers from Mommeriete, Maximus and Christoffel were available from tap. Limited but excellent choice of bottled beers. Friendly service. Value for money. I’ll be back!

A small, rather messy place, but I can imagine it can get cosy when more people ar in. The selection was really disappointing for me. The two first beers from the list I asked for, were not available. And the girl behind the bar didn’t seem to know much about beer. This place should not be in the Utrecht top 3. Sorry.

Nice atmosphere. Good service . 6 good taps and a few decentbottled beers. Belgium has a better selection in my opinion.

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

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!
