22 taps and 50 bottles. Quite a nice place. I only had time for 1 beer so I will give it a proper review another time.

I must say I was quite dissapointed. The 4 beers I had sought out on their website (3*liefmans abdis and a dentergems wit) havenít been served in more than a year. Second they had just been bought by Gollem, and although they now have a wider selection there isnít a single beer you canít get at the other well-known pubs and shops in Amsterdam. So nothing unique. That said, it is quite stylish and the do have all 3 Westvleteren for relatively cheap.

Visited early on a Friday evening. Smoking bar (not the bar itself just a reserved section but it still reeks everywhere). Kind of retro atmosphere, the bar is long and oddly shaped and the ambiance struck me as quite strange. The bartender was quite friendly though and the food was tasty. Not too much special going on beer wise, except this is by far the cheapest place in town for westvleteren and they have some cool taps (had andechser dopplebock, which was quite good, a few seasonal Dutch beers and many Belgian classics at an affordable price). I wouldnít revisit soon, but if itís in your neighbourhood still not a bad place.

Visited on a friday night, itís now called Gollemís Proeflokaal. Like Martin said, quite stylish, but still cozy. Quite a lot of tables, also for dinner (special of the day for Ä16,-). Staff is attentive, but not too familiar with the beers. Prices of the tap beers are around Ä3,50, bottles are a bit overpriced but still all around Ä4. Nothing special selection-wise, except maybe for the Tsjeeses Reserva, but nice to just meet some friends and have some good beers like Westmalle Dubbel from tap, but not a bar to go out of your way for.

Signposted to this bar having discovered Cafe Gollem in Raamsteeg is temporarily closed. Welcoming proeflokaal on the Overtoom, offering a good range of mainly Belgian beers on tap and bottle. Seventies music plays in the background, whilst drinkers enjoy the beer range and what reads like good food from the kitchen behind where, incidentally, the staff are allowed to enjoy a drink. There were some very friendly locals and drinkers here, including a girl who spoke the best English I have heard in Holland. Worth a visit. Tram No 1 will take you there from the centraal Station or the Leidseplein. Do visit!
Re-rated after visit on Fri 16th March 2012. Excellent and continuing with its great beer range and lively buzz. Keeps my recommendation!

A fairly busy and popular bar located just outside of the main center of Amsterdam. Fairly small but quality selection of beers, focussed on Dutch and Belgian brews.

Visited march 2013:
One of the bigger beercafes in Amsterdam. Plenty of seatings.
We were surprised, that the beerlist contained 106 and not 50 bottles, as some books stated.
The flemish stew was excellent. Recommendable.

Very much a student bar. I was there on pub quiz monday which was fun. Quite a good selection, about 22 on tap, 6 of those changing. They also served their own beer. Of all the Gollem cafes by far the roomiest. Located just out of downtown.

Spacious room with a terrace and 22 beers on tap. Quick service from the waitress. Didnít try the food. At a busy location just outside the city centre, only 5 minutes walking from Leidseplein.
