Very small pub located just in one of many Amsterdam small alleys, just in front of The Cracked Kettle (one of the main two bottle shop in town). This place is small and unlike most Amsterdam pubs there is no drinking in front of the pub. 25 people and the place is pretty full. This is yet another Amsterdam pub specializing in Belgian beer. Limited tap list (about 4 I think) but an extensive bottle list. Obviously the full trappist lineup, including the Westvleterens. Westys were relatively affordable at 10 to 12 Euros, about the same price as buying them at the The Cracked Kettle bottle shop just in front. And then a long list of beers written on a black board. The various hand-writing on the board leads me to believe that they have a changing beer list. You can hit this place early on a weekday, forget about finding a seat on busy nights. A nice place but to drink a Belgium beer in Amsterdam but for that type of beer and size of place I much preferred Café Belgique not too far from Gollem.

Visited a couple of years ago when I had just started tasting and rating beers. Small bar, nice place.

Classic brown cafe with decent selection of Belgians rotating on tap and good bottle selection. I like to sit upstairs on a cold winter night.
A mandatory stop on your Amsterdam beer crawl.

Small and dark like many Belgian beer bars. It had a nice collection of bottles on the wall. Fortunately we got a table in the small upstairs and were comfortable. The selection is unreal - being that I started out with a Westy 12 and 8 says that right away. The selection was large and of awesome quality and rarity, although we are in Holland right in the beer belt. They had tons of Belgian, Dutch, German, Czech, and other beers available. The list went around for quite a bit, very satisfying for new and experienced beer geeks.

Cafe Gollem is a small, crowded, but not too noisy bar. The athmosphere is friendly, the tap list is limited, but the bottle list is extensive.

One of the very best pubs in Amsterdam. Very cosy, nice guy behind counter and cat watching clients. Lavatory could be better, one can barely fit into it and scruffy outlook is not uplifting.

This is a very friendly place, that can provide a great introduction to traditional Belgian beers for anyone visiting Amsterdam. I’ve been there three times and met memorable people each time.

Old fashioned dark wooden place with alot of pathina and curiosa on the walls and on the cealing. You can get a lot of beers here. Unfortunately you dont get any new experimental or micro brews - but all the traditionals are here and maybe a few more. Its a cosy place that easely can call for a refill.
