Two-tiered bar setting, dark and comfortable and bit clubbish in feeling. Beer selection on draft is respectable, but overrun with Belgians instead of Dutch, but at least they were Belgians I hadn’t seen elsewhere in Belgium. No complaints about the crowd or staff, fairly benign visit on a rainy afternoon. Would visit again as a change of pace since you can’t exactly sit in ’t Arendsnest for 12 hours all day.

Small, packed, atmospheric Belgian-beer pub that was unfortunately choked with smoke on our visit. We managed to stay near the fresh air of the open doornot that there was room anywhere else. Local patrons were friendly and service was quick enough. If it were in Brussels it would be one of the city’s top 10, especially if they added some decent lambics. Regardless, I mentally mark every pub that carries Saison Dupont as a good one. My advice: Get there early if you want to sit.

Enjoyable little place. Emphasis on little. You’ll find it in a tiny alley next to the Cracked Kettle (a must for you beer lovers, better than Beer Konig but noones heard of it). Seating here was at a premium, but the service was fantastic. Nice selection of beers on the wall. Some great belgian style taps and enough variety in the bottles to keep me drinking happily although outside of the Westy’s & local micros, likely nothing people would consider hard to come by.

Nice little pub (literal), nice little selection of beers (litotes), nice staff, shame about most of the customers. The smokiest place we entered, but fortunately that will change in mid 2008. Grungy loo (singular) too. With different customers, I believe this place will be worthy of a re-rate to a higher value.

A gem of a place, a beer-connoisseur’s paradise. Pot-luck if you’ll get a seat but come back if you don’t succeed at first, it’s worth the effort.

Perfect place to drink the finest beers in the world. I have visited the Gollem several times and each time have left completely satisfied.

Very small little bar across from the Cracked Kettle, and I mean small. Seats around the bar and a couple tables up a little staircase. Super cozy worn wooden interior with old bottles lining all the walls, and large chalkboard menus as well. Extensive belgian bottle selection and some good Dutch stuff on top of that. Nice belgian and Dutch tap selection as well, with St Bernardus 12 on tap when I was there. They Also Had Westy 12 and 8, which were pricey at 12 and 10 euros respectively, but it was the only place where I saw them. Other than that, the prices were very good.

This place has a great atmopshere for such a small space. I have a video of it if anyone is intersted(TomGavin1@yahoo.com). The lighting is warm, and the bar is covered in worn wood. The selection is great, and the sevice is knowledgable. Make sure to visit the Cracked Kettle across the street, well, it’s actually more like the other side of the alley.

Small place for not more than 35 people, few chairs around the bar and 4 tables on upper level. The bartender was very inert. The place looks nice but I don’t understand why is this place so high rated.
Notice: If you are drunk, even half drank, don’t go to WC, because there’s a big chance to fall down the stairs and brake something.

Loved this place! I spent waaay too much time in this bar. Small little place with plenty of dive-bar character. It can get pretty smoky in there, but so does nearly every bar in the city. Pretty solid beer list, relatively inexpesive. Lots of great stuff to drink, although not a ton of rarities. Right across from the Cracked Kettle. Friendly enough staff, lots of friendly locals that I ended up befriending during my time there. Good stuff.
