This is a perfect beer joint. Small, filled with happy beer drinking people and a long list of good beers. Wish I lived closer and could visit more frequent. Because of the lay-out, little had to get a beer, that the only negative.

Nice small cafe in Amsterdam. Large selection of beers. Nice ambiance, the feeling of a real cafe.

Visited March 2013. Very cosy split level bar. Appropriate music level and style. Great belgian beer list of mostly wellknown beers. Wooden tables and chairs, which were packed at the time of our visist. And a cat! Pour yourself a great Belgian beer and listen to "Jim Croce - I got a name". Then you can feel the atmosphere! :-) Cheers

This place is very often packed, I finally managed to get a seat on my third visit. It isnít all that surprising considering it is a very plesant bar to sit at. Well located in center Amsterdam, easy to get to from many areas. The ambiance is quite enjoyable, laid back very vintage bier cafť. Didnít see/try any food unfortunately. The selection was soso - nice varied selection of Belgian beer bottles, but nothing out of the ordinary: all the usual trappists, karmeliet, chouffe, Saison Dupont and Boon lambics. All good stuff, but just nothing needing to go to this particular place. The draught list was also a bit boring, not many dutch micros, lots of belgian macros. Overall Iíd say this place is definitely a cool hangout, is worth it if youíre staying a few days in Amsterdam, but as a beer geek you donít need to sweat it to try this place out. Amsterdam has way better to offer.

I had my fist westvletern at this place. Amazingly cozy pub, with a big selection of belgian beers. Great ambiance but can get very crowded since itís small.

Gollem is a delightfully old fashioned brown cafe in a side alley between Singel (one of the central ring of canals) and Spuistraat. It has a great beer list with about 15 taps and numerous bottles. Itís full of character. The bar is downstairs and thereís a small mezzanine balcony overlooking it. The mismatched furniture is dark brown wood and there are bottles and tin plaques lining the walls alongside the blackboards listing the beers. The furniture looks home made, as do the simple wooden slats which have been installed over the bar to hold the glasses. Thereís also an intriguing box with slots, each of them labelled with a personís name. It turns out that until about two years ago locals could have a tab; their receipts were put into the appropriate slots and they would settle their bill on a monthly basis. All in all itís a great place (although I have to say I wasnít overly enamoured by the barmanís choice of music, which was dreadful French torch crooning). (Visited 29 September 2013).
