Worth making to trip to Leiden for. Owner Peter knows everything about beer and always tries to have good stuff in store. Also gives Dutch brewers shelf space if they want. Location is not the best so you have to know itís there. Got some wonderful Dutch beers and American beers. He might even have something really special on offer if you ask.
This is the way itís supposed to be. A beer store like this. The owner knows about everything you want to know about every beer he has. He is helpfull, adviseable and willing to order any beer or glass he hasnít got in stock. Great selection of rarities, commons and local craftbeers. Iím sure to be making some trips to Leiden in the near future.
My favorite, and only one I went time after time, store in Leiden. The only major problem in the store is that you need to be very careful not to knock items out of shelves (packed of products). p.s. These guys also sell lots of whisky just in case you happen to need such.

This is my main supplier and a very nice shop indeed. Packed with beers (and wiskeys) from all over the world. Good selection of Belgian beers, but also regional and Dutch, English, US, German, etc. Best is the high quality and constant renewal of whatís offered. Happy to help you (even order beers or glasses not in stock) even then busy in the tight shop. Ask for some InBev beer to kick start a good conversation. :P Has a closed cellar with aged beers as well.

Good selection of South-Holland beers, some good British ales, German beers, also American micros available.
Very good shoop in the centrum of Leiden, bit difficult to find the place but once within, youíll get crazy of the amount of beer, There are not many local beers, but without doubt is one of the best collection in North Holland. They just moved to the number 9 in Hartesteeg
Living around the corner this store is part of my saturday round, and I always end up with something perfect for the night.
They opened the world of beer for me as they supplied my studentbar with over 30 specialbeers, such as: Chimay, Orval, Bush, Beelzebub, Fin de Monde. Beers hard to find in a normal cafe, let alone a studentbar.
Good knowledge and service (we ones woke them up at 00:00 to get an emergency delivery)
Please do not forget the Cuvee from the Keiser ones it is there. Also like that they have a good selection of German beer, Belgian beer and strong liquor.
did I mention I lived around the corner :P
